I think we all intuitively know that choosing natural cleaning solutions is better for our health. BUT how do we know what products are legit, and what have been "greenwashed?" If you just want the natural solutions; scroll down. Otherwise here is a really quick summary on WHY you should clean out your cleaning cupboard!  Avoid 'green-washed' cleaning products... If you've never heard of greenwashing before - it describes products that have things like 'natural,' 'organic,' 'biodegradable,' or 'green' on the front of the packaging.

One of the most hotly debated arguments in the oily world, is where to source them from. Here is my comparison of the top essential oil companies. Why I'm only comparing doTERRA and Young Living... If you are new to the world of Essential Oils, there are 2 main players that dominate this marketplace: Young Living and doTERRA.
