There has been something missing from the modern woman’s wardrobe…. let’s bring it back!Read More...
I try to use natural based products in my home. I was originally introduced to the idea that you can keep a healthy and clean home when I discovered DōTERRA. Unfortunately, DōTERRA doesn’t make everything I need to keep my home as clean as possible.
Last year I saw advertisements about a company called Grove Collaborative. The company offers natural and environmentally friendly products for your home. Their mission is as follows:
Our mission is to inspire every family to create and sustain a healthy, beautiful home. Together, we can bring sustainability, safety, and transparency to an industry long dominated by products laden with harmful chemicals that put profit before consumer and environmental health.
I got their mission straight off their website. And their mission is deff something I can get behind.
For $20 a year you can have a membership. The membership opens the door to discounted products and a monthly shipment of products you need! Think of it like joining a Wholesale club. You pay a yearly fee to be a member and then you’re given access to wonderful products!!!
My husband and I were talking about how we can better take care of our home. Specifically, our septic system. You see, a septic system pretty much is double tank where all our sewage waste goes. In our home, this tank is located underground at the end of our driveway. Every time waste goes down the drain in our home, it goes into this massive tank. In the first part of the tank, solids like human waste and toilet paper sinks to the bottom, and in the other part “dirty” water drains into. Eventually your tank drains into a drainage field. For us, this drainage field is the woods.
So it got us thinking, if we are putting chemicals down our drains…. then those chemicals are eventually going into the woods!!! Not to mention that chemicals disrupt the balance of good bacteria in the tanks that help break down the “solids”.
So we decided to make the leap and switch all of our cleaning products to environmentally friendly products!!!
Grove Collaborative helped us to do that! It’s very easy and convenient to set up a customizable order that I pay for and gets shipped to me every month. Not to mention all the fun free gifts Grove sends out occasionally too!!!
For my first order I got ELEVEN products for $24!!!!!! Yep. ELEVEN PRODUCTS. Which is amazing because when I buy that many products at, say Walmart or Target, I’m easily paying $80.
I’m officially hooked on Grove. And I hope that maybe you could be too! If you would like to give Grove a try, they offer a free gift with purchase for your first order and a trial of their VIP membership. Just click Here!!!!!

I’m sure just about everyone has accidentally left their laundry in the washing machine a bit too long. I do it just about every week. I know. I know. I’m an awful person.
I now make it a point every month to wash my washing machine. Yeah. I know that sounds a little funny. I wash my washing machine? The machine that always has soap and occasionally bleach in it?
Well think about it. You’re constantly putting dirty clothes into the machine. Yes the machine is cleaning your clothes but what’s cleaning your machine??
To keep my laundry and machine smelling fresh I use the following recipe once a month.
1 cup distilled white vinegar
1 cup baking soda
20 drops Melaleuca essential oil
20 drops lemon essential oil
With your washer empty of all clothes, add the baking soda directly to the basin.
Add the essential oils to the measured vinegar, stir and add to the liquid soap part of your washer.
Set your washer to a normal load and forget about it!
It’s that easy.
We all know that vinegar is a great all natural cleaning agent. It also gets rid of any build up in your washer from oils, soaps, and hard water.
Melaleuca oil is natural anti fungal and anti bacterial.
Lemon is cleansing. The citric acid is going to help cut down on build up and leave a fresh clean scent!
