 We ask participants to be on time to respect all other attendees
Create your own safe home cleaning products using pure essential oils and other natural ingredients such as orange oil, sodium percarbonate; which is a chlorine-free form of peroxide that's less harsh on sensitive skin. Other ingredients include natural beeswax, vegetable-based liquid castile soap which contains no phosphates or detergents that harm the environment, baking soda and so much more. These non-toxic alternatives to synthetic cleaning products have been proven to benefit your health and the environment. Making your own home cleaning products is the most cost-effective alternative to commercial finished products.
Studies have shown that essential oils high in monoterpenes are most effective at reducing bacterial presence, making them a powerful cleaning choice. 
 
Next Class: at the store location Supplies may vary
All supplies are included at no extra cost when you attend a workshop in person. This is becoming a very popular workshop as the environment is becoming such a hot topic. Everything we do to reduce our own personal footprint will make a difference!

    Hi Kirsty,
    We haven't scheduled one yet, so your best bet is to select the "email me when in stock" option on the web page. The more interest we get, the sooner we can schedule that class.
    Thank You!
