"If the facts don't fit the theory then change the facts"

                                                                   Albert Einstein


The facts that have been imposed on us in the last 30 years about cleaning agents, just don't seem to fit the theory of having a clean home.  

More and more evidence is revealing that chemical detergents are polluting our homes and creating environments that are affecting our health.    The facts indicate  that respiratory illness is now the leading cause of admissions to hospitals.   Childhood asthma has risen exponentially. It is now estimated that cancer will affect 2-3 people in North America.   These facts should lead us to a question.  What is it that we are doing, that is creating an epidemic of poor and life threatening illness?


Extensive research is revealing that our everyday household products contain, chemicals that on a long term and short term basis will effect our health.  


"These hard facts need to be replaced with old age remedies that were used to clean homes effectively."



Vinegar:   A solution of acetic acid.  Most vinegar contains 5% acetic acid in water.   This cleans and deodorizes your home with anti-septic antibacterial properties with no streaking or residue build up.  


Baking Soda:  A white solid crystalline that appears as a fine powder.   It is a phenomenal deodorizer for carpets refrigerators, upholstery drains,  It polishes aluminum chrome and jewelry.   Baking soda softens the water in your laundry and the bath tub.   An excellent toothpaste and safe under arm deodorant.


Liquid Soap (Fragrance & SLS free Soap) Clear liquid soap that does not have any harsh chemicals.  It can be used as a detergent, dishwashing liquid, hand and body soap.  


Essential oils:  Pure natural essential oils are a wonderful alternative to using artificial room fragrances and they also have the ability to remove airborne bacteria and infections that may effect the household.  Keeping in mind that even though essential oils are natural and derived from pure botanical sources, over exposure to them  may also have their contraindications.


Listed below you are essential oils that I highly recommend to use in your personalized cleaning products;


Lemon  Citrus limon
The lovely citrus fragrance is uplifting and refreshing.  It is always a compliment to any personalized cleaning product.  Rejuvenating and refreshing, while contributing to the anti-septic and anti-bacterial effect of the environment.     This oil may also be used as a bleach to lighten or remove stains.

Rosemary Rosemarinus officinalis:

A wonderful herbaceous fragrant that is  anti-bacterial and anti-fungal.   This is an oil to use when air is infested with mildew and infections relating to respiratory tract, also it is insecticide: I would recommend spraying a mist of rosemary in cabinets, drawer, bathrooms, bath tub, garbage cans and other areas in the home that may accumulate mildew or fungus.


Eucalyptus Eucalyptus radiata

The freshness and the openness of the Eucalyptus essential oil will refresh the air.  Leaving your home with the feeling of open space.   This age old remedy has been used for medicinal purposes, cleaning agent to cleaning sticky grime and even removing adhesive glue.  Now there is a vast amount of research that indicates that it is capable of killing dust mites, the number one cause of allergies. 


Tea Tree Melaleuca alternifolia:  

Tea tree strong anti-bacterial, anti-fungal,  antiseptic properties reduces the spread of infections and disinfects the areas of applications.   Tea Tree will inhibit mildew build up in the home especially in bathroom and toilet bowls.


Lavandin:  Lavendula X intermedia

The fresh floral fragrant of Lavandin is a wonderful fragrant is highly anti-septic, anti-bacterial; decongestant.  Relieves any room with  stagnant air circulation.  Highly recommended when  with a feeling contributing to an uplifting and clean aroma in your home.  


Pine: Pine Sylvestris:

A fresh pine aroma leaving your home smelling like an alpine forest: Pine essential oil disinfects bacteria, cleans the home environment from dust and grime.  Allows easy breathing. Recommended for colds and flues allowing easy breathing.
