Avoid Avoiding What You Love About the Holidays!


While living healthy (especially in regard to what we eat) is very important, there is a time and place for everything.  Plenty of health advice is touted during the Christmas season, some being: drink a glass of water or eat a small meal before going to parties so that you arrive with less of an appetite, avoid foods with high fat/cholesterol.  There are 362 other days for counting calories!  Enjoy the traditional foods of the season!

Spread Thankful Acts this Thanksgiving Season & Beyond!


As I was reflecting last night on our Thanksgiving holiday, that is just a few days away, I thought to myself how fitting it is to celebrate Thanksgiving as a prelude to the Christmas season. 
Without thankful hearts, it is hard to spread Joy and Good Cheer.  If we each stop and think for a moment, I am sure each of us could come up with a couple of things to be thankful for.

One of our customers emailed us the following poem which speaks to being thankful for things we can take for granted.  This poem is entitled, "Thankful" (anonymous).

Green Spotlight Shines on Local Non-Profit!


Harmony All Natural Aromatherapy's Spotlight shines brightly on a charity we proudly support…

An Angels Road to Success

This awe-inspiring, non-profit organization was started by a woman named Dawn, who thinks of herself as an "everyday" kind of person which just goes to prove that the most inspirational of people can be just like you and me.

What's the Mission? 
Dawn's passion and that of An Angels Road to Success is to help disadvantaged individuals through both long and short term assistance obtain and keep gainfully employed jobs.

What's the Strategy?

·        Education:  Six months of classes are offered covering basic math skills, life skills (properly filling out applications, preparing for interviews, understanding credit scores…), basic English (as needed), geometry (if in the carpentry program).  Financial assistance is provided for these classes.

·        Trade Skills programs:  Right now auto mechanics and carpentry are offered.  Classes are given in each respective field as well as hands on training.  Financial assistance is provided for those in either program.  

·        If clothing is needed for job interviews, An Angels Road to Success assists.

·        Steel-toe boots are supplied for those in the carpentry program.

Who's in Support?

·        Local area auto mechanics and carpentry businesses are hiring those in the trade skills programs; giving them on-the-job training to prepare each enrollee with the skill sets needed to live an independent and sustainable life in their particular trade.

·        HG Labs, LLC's Harmony All Natural Aromatherapy Cleaners proudly supports Dawn and An Angels Road to Success. We are glad that Dawn not only has such care for the disadvantaged and is doing something about it; she also cares about the environment and has chosen cleaners that are 100% all-natural and non toxic. An Angels Road to Success uses our sister company, Brightly Green Concentrate Cleaners for the purpose of training individuals enrolled in programs how to measure and mix the all natural concentrate cleaners into  "Ready to Use" bottles which they sell to area businesses, gaining skills in sales.   

** An Angels Road to Success, as a charity receive special consideration from HG Labs, LLC.


How can YOU get involved?
If you are interested to learn more, contact Dawn at:  anangelsroadtosuccess@yahoo.com

To make a donation to An Angels Road to Success send donation to:
Margaret Hank Memorial Cumberlain Presbyterian Church in Paducah, KY.

An Angels Road to Success is a separate entity from Margaret Hank Memorial Cumberlain Presbyterian Church, but was graciously given space to operate out of the church facility.

Establishing Green Clean Routines


 
It is a "no-brainer" that cleaning is a necessary part of life.  The challenge is staying on top of it! 

Have you ever had guests show up unexpectedly and you've said, "My house was clean this morning."

If you are the parent of preschoolers, toddlers or infants; special grace is extended to you!  Young children can sweep in like a tornado; destroying any clean and organized space.  For the rest of us, we may be running out of legitimate excuses. 

Staying on top of a clean environment requires establishing routines.  We have routines for work, we just need to transfer the concept of routines to our home environment.  In fact, it has been said that maintenance is always more effective than a big cleanup.  Maintenance can save up to two thirds of your time than doing a big cleanup.

So in light of the benefits of maintenance, what routines would be most helpful for you?  Answer that and then you will be prepared to set up a plan of action.

Three Tips to Green Clean & Organize Back to School


 
Hopefully you have been able to get your summer de-cluttering finished, and are winding down on other summer projects.  With your children starting a new school year, it is the perfect time to establish new organization routines that teach responsibility for life skills. If your children's organizational skills waned over the summer months, now is the time to get those habits back on track.
One area that seems to be a struggle for many moms I know of is in the area of keeping kids backpacks and school papers from becoming misplaced or even lost.  It is good to teach your children how to be organized and care for their belongings.  Teaching them this responsibility goes a long way!

The following tips are easy responsibility chores your kids can do to keep their school supplies organized as well as cleaned naturally:

Clutter Free Living: To Keep or not to Keep?


 



Once you've committed to the idea that "this is it, I need to be clutter free", it becomes a matter of getting in there and doing it.  The next hurdle is knowing what to keep and what to get rid of.

Over the course of several years, I have talked with numerous people concerning their issues with clutter.  The number one question most have had was determining what to get rid of vs. what to keep. 

If you struggle with this dilemma ask yourself:

Green Planning for Memorial Day-Weekend

Only four days until the "unofficial" start of summer vacation begins! 

Great summer trips begin with great, green planning!
 
Roll out the RV…. Air out the Tent!

Get them both green-clean ready for the start of summer vacationing!

Living in close quarters when traveling
 should be reason enough to green clean the RV with 100% all-natural Harmony Aromatherapy Cleaners. 

If cleaning your home with chemical cleaners may pose potential health risks to your family's respiratory and nervous systems, how much greater the risk would be to use those cleaners in your RV or tent! 

Safely and effectively clean your RV and or tent with Harmony Aromatherapy Multi-Purpose Cleaner.  Get your RV or tent summer-ready with Harmony Aromatherapy Multi-Purpose Cleaner and be sure to pack an extra bottle for quick, green clean-up while on the road!

Are you packing sleeping bags for the trip?  Extend the life of your sleeping bags by laundering them with Harmony Aromatherapy All Natural Laundry Wash.   Regular laundry detergents are known to wear down the fibers in fabrics causing them to not hold up as long as they could.  Harmony Aromatherapy All Natural Laundry Wash is gentle on fabric fibers yet powerful enough to give the clean you need!

So get green-clean ready and have a wonderful start to your summer!

Earth Day/Week 2014



What:  EARTH DAY

When:  Tuesday, April 22, 2014
 
Why:  As a global day of awareness
            in support of protecting the environment. 
 
How to get involved:

Make an action plan.  There are countless actions you can take to make a difference.  As with so many things; begin with small steps. 

Make it a family event. Clean up your local park.  Enlist other families to join you, then have a picnic afterwards!

Make your efforts sustainable: Plant a fruit tree in your yard.  Trees filter the air and fruit trees will give you very local produce for years to come!   Plant shade tree and watch your energy bill decrease.  You will reduce the cost of running your air conditioning when you plant shade trees near your home.

Make it a kick-off day to creating new habits on living non-toxic.  Harmony Aromatherapy's 100% all natural cleaners protect you and your environment from toxins.  Cleaning green is a significant way to protect your personal health and the environment closest to you!

Many communities and nations celebrate Earth Day all week long.  You may want to do the same by choosing one environment awareness project per day next week or plan a few days to make a difference. 

Have fun and GO GREEN!

Eco-Friendly Passover & Easter Preparations


April is a month filled with festive holidays celebrating New Beginnings!  It is also a month in which new beginnings are occurring within nature.  Migratory birds are returning to their spring and summer homes.  Trees are beginning to bud, spring flowers are popping up—nature is coming to life again!  I enjoy seeing new signs of life outdoors every day—don't you?

As you prepare for this months' holidays whether Passover or Easter, pace yourself in your preparations to more fully appreciate their significance. 

We like to give our homes more of a deep cleaning around special holidays—these holidays are no exception.  Get the kids involved in the cleanup.  Assign them tasks such as dusting furniture with Harmony Aromatherapy Wood Floor Cleaner.  Use Harmony Aromatherapy Multi-Purpose Cleaner, to wipe down kitchen counters and the refrigerator door.  Older children can handle cleaning the bathroom (though they probably won't want to) with Harmony Aromatherapy Bathroom Cleaner.   (Need more supplies?  Find Harmony All Natural Aromatherapy products on Brightly Green Home Store.)

When setting the table for your holiday guests do something new and make homemade decorations with your children.  Maybe even have name cards at each place setting. Use rubber stamps in spring prints for the name cards.

Incorporate nature into your home and for your table decorations as much as possible.  Real egg shells make for a unique "vase" to hold fresh cut spring flowers!  Freshen up your home with one or more of HG Labs Harmony Air Fresheners made with 100% all natural ingredients! 
Our air fresheners-naturally scented with the smell of fresh fruit and tropical flowers only adding to the burst of awakening nature awakening this spring!
 

May your celebrations be meaningful!

Spring Cleaning: Think Outside-the-Box!


 
Not much has changed in my home when it comes to spring cleaning than when I was growing up.
  In my house, everything from curtains to cupboards, bathrooms to bedding…I mean everything gets cleared, sorted, washed down and returned to its rightful place--just like mom did.

 As I was going through my emails today, I ran across an article on spring cleaning your diet.   That got me thinking about other important areas in life that could use a "spring cleaning."

Could you use a "spring cleaning" in any of the following personal areas?

Why Use All Natural Cleaners--It's a Matter of Trust!


 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Which of the following pairs of items would you consider to be healthier?

One apple or a container of applesauce

French fries or a baked potato

Scalloped potatoes made by hand or a store bought box of scalloped potatoes

Butter or margarine

Pretty easy, right?  The closer an item is to its original state of being, the healthier it is for you. Take that one step further and the argument could go:  one organic apple vs. one non-organic apple.

Now, what does this have to do with cleaning products?

Make Spring Cleaning a Launching Project


 
Are thoughts of summer vacations, rooms to remodel, places to visit dancing in your head?  Move those thoughts from your head into a project list and seriously work through the viability of doing those things.  Some of us spend more time thinking and dreaming instead of acting on those dreams or projects. 
Let Spring Cleaning be a launching project from which you model how to plan and organize other things you want to accomplish, but never seem to get around doing.  Turning your spring cleaning project into a time-ordered task may give you the boost you need to order other projects you would like to accomplish but don't know where to begin.
Hello, I'm Brenda and I write for Harmony All Natural Aromatherapy Cleaners. As a busy mom and professional, I have found it helpful when tackling a project to set a target date for when I want to be FINISHED.  No, I don't set a BEGINNING date; but a FINISH BY or DUE DATE—so to speak.  If I had a ''starting date," I may drag on my project too long.  It is more helpful for me to have a "due date," to keep me motivated and on target.

My daughter asked me this morning, "Mom, when are we going to start spring cleaning?"  I told her after I finished my current project due this upcoming Monday, then we would plan for our spring cleaning.  I know for myself that taking on too many projects at once will result in nothing getting done, or not done well.  

You know yourself, pace yourself.  Look at your calendar and set the "finished by date" for your spring cleaning and other projects in a timely sequence.  Allow breathing room—margins in your life too! 
 
Green cleaning is a part of living green.  Living green is also about enjoying life, keeping things simple where we can and pacing ourselves.  There is a rhythm to life that is freeing when we find it! 

For you, maybe you won't consider green spring cleaning until after your children's spring break.  No problem.  When you get back, then consider when you want to tackle spring cleaning and set a target "finish-by date."  Be sure to order Harmony Aromatherapy products shortly after setting your date so that when you begin to clean, you have everything you need to get started!
