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.

Where to Buy High Quality Essential Oils

Warning: DO NOT purchase your oils through Amazon, eBay, Walmart or similar websites with 3rd party sellers! Many of those oils are counterfeit and causing health ailments, skin reactions, headaches, and a lot of misery. Most reputable essential oil brands do not allow their oils to be purchased there, so when you do find them (even if the seller appears to be legitimate), they’re often fake.
I highly encourage you to check out our How To Find Quality Essential Oils post for in-depth information about why quality matters, and what to look for.
