Happy New Year!
While I love the holidays and all the joy they bring, I really look forward to January with its fresh starts, new goals, and blank pages to be written. One goal from last year that carries over to 2015 is finding natural alternatives for cleaning and wellness.
Last year, I was introduced to the world of essential oils and it was love at first use. Essential oils have drastically changed our cleaning methods and dealing with minor health concerns. My cleaning routines and shopping lists have become shorter, simpler versions of their previous selves due to the versatility of essential oils.
After spending most of last year using oils from another company, I eventually started looking into other options for essential oils. I was looking for a company with high quality products that promoted accessibility to oils for all budgets and needs without the complex business structure or need for annual membership for the best pricing.
I had heard of Spark Naturals oils and was anxious to try them. Last fall, I ordered Spark Naturals Essential 4 Pack of Lavender, Lemon, Peppermint and Melaleuca. These are the oils we use most in our home for cleaning and they are some of the most versatile oils, period. (Post coming soon about how I use these specific oils) I was very impressed with the oils from Spark Naturals and have continued to order their oils.
Why I love Spark Naturals:
Quality: Spark Naturals sources their oils from plants grown in their indigenous regions. This is important to me as plants grow best in their home environments. The high quality of plants can lead to a higher quality oil. In my research on essential oils, I have learned to look for the Latin plant name, country of origin, and distillation methods ( i.e. cold pressing for citrus oils, steam distillation for other oils) as markers for quality. Spark Naturals provides that information by oil on the website. All Spark Naturals oils are tested for composition and quality.
Accessibility: Spark Naturals’ commitment to accessibility is evident in their business model. They offer all oils in 5 ml size, making trying oils more affordable. The 5 ml size is perfect for those new to essential oils, on a limited budget, or just trying a new oil or blend for the first time. There are no memberships required to get the best pricing. The Oil of the Month Club is a great, economical way to build your essential oil collection. For just $15.99 per month, you will receive a 15 ml oil. AND for January 2015, the Oil of the Month is actually the Essential 4 Pack featuring a 5 ml Lavender, Lemon, Melaleuca, and Peppermint! It’s a fantastic value for those just starting their essential oil journey. (A full listing of the Oil of the Month for 2015 is available at http://idevaffiliate.sparknaturals.com/idevaffiliate.php?id=5142 )
In addition to the already great pricing, you can use my coupon code SEARCH4SIMPLE to receive an additional 10% off your order at checkout! This code is good for use every time you place an order. Plus you can get free shipping on orders over $55 in the continental U.S. Lots to love :).
Integration: When first learning about essential oils, you learn two things. First, there is so much to learn and lots of research to be done. Second, there are many tools that will make using your oils safer and easier. Spark Naturals offers usage guides, diffusers, carrier oils, roller bottles, oils cases, etc right on the website to help you in using your oils well. It’s great to be able to get everything I need at one place.
If green cleaning, fewer chemicals, and natural alternatives are among your goals for the New Year, give Spark Naturals a try!
