      We have wood floors in our home and use nothing but water with essential oils (just a bit) added. I prefer to use my homemade 4 Thieves oil (which it would seem everyone makes a little differently) but mine contains lavender, cinnamon, cloves, rosemary and lemon oils. I have a friend who cleans her countertops only with eucalyptus because of it’s potent germ-killing ability, but I do not like the fragrance of eucalyptus or tea tree. Almost all essential oils have anti-biotic, anti-fungal, anit-septic qualities.

      I’ve tried the homemade laundry soaps and always end up going back to either store soaps or soapnuts. I still use Fels-Naptha bar soap rubbed on stains first though. Or I like to use Dr. Bronner’s Sal Suds for stain removal. We use his other soaps for body and hair, etc.

      I have a hard time getting borax and washing soda locally, so I improvise with just using essential oils. Works for me.

    I shared some research on raw milk, proving it is safer than pasteurized! Never mind the health benefits. :) And some questions to ask whenever you see propaganda so that you’re not caught up in the scary-sounding but fake “information” they provide.

    My recent post on the real cause and treatment of “mental disorders.” It gives a lot of background on the symptoms of gut dybiosis and how it can lead down into mental problems as well as autoimmune and neurological.
