Wholesome Green Living

Hello, I am Brenda and I write on behalf of Harmony All Natural Aromatherapy Cleaners.  I am also a concerned mother of three who seeks to live an overall green and simple lifestyle along with you!

As my own family seeks to live a more simplistic, green lifestyle, I am finding it intriguing how often the news reports a story on the battlefront between all natural products or produce vs. chemical infused products or produce.

An interesting phenomenon in the most recent decade is the rise in food-related allergies and diseases.  Do the research yourself and you will be amazed at all the findings regarding correlations between what we eat and the sicknesses and diseases we carry within us!

Ward Off Summertime Boredom!

Well, it is official as of this week—summer break begins for the school children in our Midwestern state! 
Has boredom begun to set in on your kids yet?  Are they asking you what is there to do?  My kids are afraid to ask me that question as they know that I always have a cleaning task they can do! 


Take an hour or so and set up a schedule of activities you can do with your child(ren).  Maybe there is only one special outing or activity you can feasibly do in a week due to your work schedule.  That is ok.  Having a plan and setting the date on the calendar will give your child(ren) something to look forward to and eliminate the harried attempt at coming up with an activity on-the-fly.

Here are some suggestions to get you thinking…

Eco-Friendly Ideas for Celebrating Father's Day

Think on the creative side for Father’s Day. 

 Could dad’s golf clubs use a good, green clean?  Perhaps the grill already needs a good, green cleaning.  Surprise his man cave or office with an extra touch of TLC green cleaning!  Another possibility is giving dad’s vehicle a thorough green clean inside and out.
You know what needs that extra, eco-friendly clean, for dad’s sake, and we have what it takes to clean it while keeping dad, the family and the environment safe!

Giving dad more than a gift; giving him your hard work for an area or object he enjoys is sure to please him! 
When you are finished cleaning, surprise dad by purchasing him an eco-friendly gift suitable to the area you just cleaned. 

For example:

One Green Clean Project a Day!

Taking one cleaning project a day can really help you to manage your time and keep you from becoming overwhelmed with a day filled with cleaning chores.

The project I took on today was cleaning my refrigerator.  I have family coming in from out-of-town later this week and I want to have a clean refrigerator as they are bound to want to help with cooking meals, etc.  I choose today to tackle the fridge because there is basically nothing in it.  You know how that goes when it’s time to get groceries...and the kids are hollering “Mom want can I eat?”

When it is bare, there is obviously less that you have to remove in order to clean the shelves, etc.  I timed myself and it took me about a half an hour to clean it out.  So if you have twenty minutes to half an hour, this project is do-able.  Plan to do it the night before you need to get more groceries or the morning of.  It is much more pleasant to put groceries into a clean refrigerator than putting them into a dirty one.

Quick Green Clean Tools for Today: 

Harmony All Natural Aromatherapy Dish Wash & Harmony All Natural Degreaser

 --Our all natural cleaners are truly all natural as they are 100% biodegradable and sustainable.  Harmony All Natural Aromatherapy Cleaners are ranked at the top of Whole Foods Markets independent Eco-Scale testing for quality green cleaners.  You can tackle any cleaning project in confidence knowing that Harmony All Natural Aromatherapy cleaners are not harming you, your family or the environment. 

Green-Clean, How-To:  I filled my sink up with soapy, Harmony Aromatherapy Dish Wash and warm water. This soapy water was used to wash down the inner walls, drawers, and shelves. 

I also used Harmony All Purpose Degreaser on the shelves for a finishing touch.  I like to experiment with various cleaners on different surfaces.  The degreaser shined up the glass shelves and left a pleasant scent in my fridge! 

I have found that taking a half hour after sending the kids off to school is a good time for me to get a project or two in; then I can go about the rest of my day.

Green clean and organize each day to help keep clutter at bay!
