What could be worse than the sneezing rampage as you dust your furniture? That dust poofs up and achoo! It never seems to end. And forget leaving the windows open in the spring, during the pollen-apocalypse that just coats every surface in an endless cycle of constant dust and sneeze frenzy that never seems to end.You shouldn't have to sacrifice a clean home
What could be worse? Well… if you’re dusting with toxic products where the only healthy ingredient is “natural lemon,” you could end up doing your body (and your family’s bodies) more harm than good. Before you spray any more cleaners in your home, please look them up over on the Environmental Working Group’s database! A simple Google search with EWG and the name of your cleaner will take you to where you need to be, or you can go to www.ewg.org and do a search for your cleaner there. We recommend sticking with cleaners graded A.
Or you can use our favorite super simple DIY cleaner that also polishes wood.

** PLEASE NOTE ** Don’t be fooled by clever marketing. Not all essential oils are created equally. Don’t miss my complete guide on how to find quality pure essential oils to ensure you’re not wasting your money on brands that legally conduct misleading, unethical, and deceitful marketing practices.
