Plant love is a big part of our business, we provide eco-friendly cleaning practices to keep your home safer, and the planet less polluted by chemicals. We exclusively use our in-house brand of plant based non-toxic cleaners, Nurturals along with a line of organic essential oils.

As winter approaches we are gearing up for colder, months ahead. Spending more time indoors can be made pleasant by not only keeping a tidy, routinely cleaned home, but also by adopting some plant babies of your own! House plants not only look cute, they offer an array of health benefits. Indoor plants work to clear the air of carbon dioxide and release oxygen which assists in easier breathing. They also assist in increasing focus and productivity, overall health improvements, and act as a natural humidifier by releasing water into the air as part of their photosynthetic process.
