my new favorite home fragrance…


Caldrea Pear Blossom Agave Products.

Such a beautiful clean fresh crisp scent. I am using all over my home. I especially love the hand soap. It’s not overwhelming like some hand soaps and the scent is just enough to enjoy for the whole family.


The sky is bright and blue. The soil so fertile, flowers and trees look ready to burst. With every breeze, you sense a new fragrance: fresh pear blossom, ripe citrus and succulent melon. A perfect harmony of summer in bloom.

My second favorite Caldrea scent is:


Boards washed white by the sun. This seashore of a scent sends citrus and juniper aloft on breezes of minerals, florals and the clean musk of summer dances.

Another favorite of mine for years. So lovely on a summer day.

All Caldrea products clean so well. And leave a wonderful scent behind but nothing over powering.

DIY cleaning supplies Dr. Bronner’s…


When it comes to cleaning my home I enjoy Dr. Bronner’s Liquid Castile Soaps to add to things like surface cleaner as the “soap” base. They smell so good too. Hop over the cleanmama.net to see how she mixes in some Dr. Bronner’s Liquid Soap to clean her baseboards in her home. DYI alert!

I even use these liquids as laundry detergent too. There are so many uses for them…

Suggested uses

Dr. Bronner’s 18-in-1 Pure-Castile Soaps are good for just about any cleaning task. Face, body, hair – food, dishes, laundry, mopping, pets – clean your house and body with no synthetic preservatives, detergents or foaming agents – none! Dilute! Dilute! OK!!
I like to use the scent Eucalyptus, Peppermint, and Tea Tree for my bathroom. Citrus in the kitchen. And Lavender on my bedding to help me relax at night. I am all for aromatherapy! In laundry on my bathroom linens I use classic almond scent. It’s just nice and clean.

favorite cleaning supplies…


My vote is Mrs Meyer’s Clean Day cleaning supplies for my home.


Mrs. Meyer’s Clean Day believes in a better way to get a good clean. Chock full of plant-derived ingredients and essential oils, our household cleaning products are powerful against dirt and grime. Garden-fresh scents uplift your mood while adding a little spring to your step. We all have to clean–let’s make the very best of it.

I love the products and they are aromatic too. I believe in aromatherapy in my home too. Below are some of the scents of Mrs Meyer’s Clean Day products.
