How to Freshen Up Your Home! The Right Way.

This should really be titled “How to Freshen up your Home without harsh chemicals

Introducing from our Thymes Collection

Thyme’s perfectly captures the fragrance as:

“Fresh. Clean. Green.”

“Lively mandarin oil. Robust coriander. Vibrant grapefruit. Calming lemon balm. Warm sweet marjoram. Fragrant rosemary leaf. Cozy Irish moss. Sacred Atlas cedar wood. Verdant green ivy.”

This fragrance has the cleanliness we all long for in the spring, with notes that still invite you to the space you’re creating. Which product should I feature first? I suppose the one that surprised me the most. Being as we’ve carried Thymes for some time now, I was amazed to know that a dishwashing liquid is available.

So long, dishpan hands! Swish dishes clean with biodegradable, naturally derived cleaning agents brightened with delectably distinctive scent. Fortified with comfrey extract to soothe and lemon balm extract to help tone.

Sometimes I struggle washing dishes by hand, due to eczema, however this was gentle enough that I didn’t have to worry about it. And I don’t even want to admit how many dishes had piled up when I ended up using my Mandarin Coriander Dishwashing Liquid for the first time. Let’s just say that I washed enough dishes to feed a big 10 school…okay, maybe not that many. But you get the point.

I was pleasantly surprised by the aroma that filled the air while I was doing the dishes I must admit. It’s not my favorite chore (hello vacuuming!) but this made it much easier, because it transported me to a warm sunny day with a light breeze on a patio with a book and a cup of tea. Funny what a fragrance can do, isn’t it?!

Now, onto the next featured product in this line.

Puts a fragrant finishing touch of clean on counter tops and other non-glass surfaces. Biodegradable cleansing agents and essential oils of orange and lemon gently clean while a light lingering halo freshens the air.

The All-Purpose Cleaner. Having used this before with the Frasier Fir collection (I’m ordering for Christmas already-I know. It’s nuts!) I had some high expectations. Because when I first used the All-Purpose Cleaner in Frasier Fir, I was flabbergasted at how great my office smelled. And that was when I was first moving into it and didn’t even have a candle in there yet. So I know it was all the cleaner. Obviously, this cleaner lived up to my expectations, and I don’t know if it’s just cause I’m excited for sunshine and blue skies, but this exceeded them.

Welcome sunny and warmer days with a fresh atmosphere and fragrance without harsh chemicals! So I have to ask…

    I look forward to getting my 1,000 square foot garden going at my grandmas farm. We plant so much stuff and it helps keep us busy all summer and my kids love doing it too! Keeping traditions alive!

    1. That sounds like an incredible tradition, and quite a lot of work! But so rewarding! I’ll be thinking of you and your family when I’m tending the little patch between the sidewalk and the road this season!
