I’ve been outside the past few days working in the dirt, weeding, pruning lavender plants, and wildflowers at our farm. It feels so good to be outside at the farm again, and have dirt under my fingernails 🙂 I’ve been dreaming about it!! I love feeling the warm sunshine on my face, and the sweet song of the birds! Spring is Springing up around our lavender farm, and there are a few early Spring flowers blooming, Rock Cress, Snowdrops, Crocus, and Daffodils!
Now I need to delve into the dirty work in my house and get some spring cleaning done…however, I’d much rather be outside in the garden 🙂 Sigh…
To start I might grab some of our Lavender Hydrosol from our Lavandin X-Intermedia and spritz it around the house. I could also, just use a bottle of our 100% natural All Purpose Cleaner (which has a base of our lavender hydrosol along with several dirt & grease fighting natural essential oils), and get started on my household dirty work.
Did you know that lavender essential oil and lavender hydrosol (plant water or distillate water) have beautiful antibacterial, antiseptic, and anti-fungal properties, which makes them perfect for your natural lavender green cleaning…and they bring that fresh smell of a lavender fields into your home as well 🙂
Our All Purpose Cleaner is made with 100% Pure Botanicals, and is Organic. Several years back I started making my own cleaner out of our organic lavender hydrosol because of it powerful disinfectant properties. A majority of the ingredients come directly from our lavender plants. The base is our Organic Lavender Hydrosol, and into it I added 7 pure “powerhouse” plant essentials oils, which are also antibacterial, antiseptic, and anti-fungal.
No harsh chemicals in this lovely product, just natural plant cleaning power…Hooray! I get very excited about that, because I have occupational dermatitis in my hands, from being a Cosmetologist/Aesthetician for 26 years. I “never” use cleaning products that contain chemicals now. I just spray on my All Purpose Cleaner and follow up with a hot soapy cloth or mop. This cleaner is safe for the user and the environment! It cuts grease, dirt & buildup on floors, walls, counter-tops, sinks, tubs, toilets, kitchen, diaper pails, doorknobs, and even mirrors, without streaks, while it deodorizes with a naturally pure fresh & clean aroma!
I started a cleaning routine several years ago when my daughter was young. We started a list of different chores that needed to be done, whose job it was, and how often it would be done. Then we set a timer, and worked steady to complete the task in 15 minutes, or as close to that as possible. So, we were essentially just doing 15 minute clean-up’s..not “Household Chores” that drug on all afternoon..heh! Just changing the name to “15 minute clean-up” made all the difference!! So get your team together, that means everybody that lives in the house, roll up your sleeves, and get lavender-green with your cleaning! You can keep your home clean, and your family healthy, and that includes your pet area, by simply making your own household cleaner or using our organic All Purpose Cleaner.
I’m hooked, and many of our customers are also hooked on our lovely 100% natural cleaner. They tell me, they can’t believe how beautiful and fresh the aroma of their house is after cleaning with it.. like a field of lavender flowers! So get into your Lavender Green “15 minutes clean-up” and clean with enjoyment! Your house will soon begin to sparkle, and the aroma will be sweet & fresh as our fragrant lavender! Breathe…sigh…SMILE 🙂
