The noxious chemicals found in common household cleaning products that line store shelves across America are a concern to health conscious consumers and are often among the most toxic products found in the home.
Many of the chemicals in household cleaners that foam, bleach and disinfect dishes and bathtubs and keep countertops gleaming and germ-free are poisonous if ingested, contribute to indoor air pollution and can be harmful if inhaled or touched.
According to the Environmental Working Group (EWG) everyday products like dish soap and laundry detergent are polluting our air and our bloodstreams with toxic chemicals linked to cancer, infertility and stunted development.
Steve and Patricia Hess of Southern California, following a series of reactions to common, chemical-based household cleaners within their own family, created EarthScentsTM Natural Cleaning Products.
EarthScentsTMdoes not use synthetic fragrances, which can cause physical irritation, discomfort and asthma. Instead, EarthScents contains pure essential oils, which elevate the mood and are generally recognized as containing active antimicrobial compounds.
EarthScents'TM Terra Firma spray cleaner and Terra Tough Scrub powder cleanser come in a variety of aromatherapy scents packaged in attractive display bottles that are both reusable and recyclable. EarthScentsTM Terra Firma All Purpose Cleaner is antifungal and contains tea tree oil.
The all-natural compound formulas were created to be tough on dirt yet safe on people, pets and the planet and the ingredients are smartly sourced to reduce global impact.
Patricia Hess is the creator and co-founder of the EarthScentsTM line of all-purpose specialty cleaning products. “I designed these aromatherapy scented home cleaning products from the ground up for consumers who are allergy prone or sensitive to chemical cleaners. EarthScentsTM has particular appeal for anyone who is concerned about harsh chemicals entering their home.”
EarthScentsTM was founded on the principle of environmental and social responsibility. The company launched in 2011 and gives back to the community through its Progressive Corporate Giving Program and donates 5% of its annual profits to California based, Heal The Bay. (http://www.healthebay.org/
