When I was in the seventh grade one of my teachers gave me a little tea candle. I’d never had a candle of my own before so I was pretty excited to burn it in my room and feel super grown up. The smell was divine. But soon the little tea candle was gone and so was the smell, and since it was an unlabeled little tea candle I had NO IDEA what the smell was….But I spent the next 17 years hunting for it. Sometimes I would find something that was similar but nothing exactly until one day I happened upon Mrs. Meyers cleaning products and they were having a sale on candles. As soon as the geranium scent hit my nose I was transported back to my seventh grade bedroom…now, thats not necessarily a place I want to be, however the smell was still fresh and clean and not over powering. I bought three and headed home a happy camper.
And so my love for Mrs. Meyer’s products began. It started with candles but it quickly spread to their counter cleaner. Also an amazing scent but no artificial ingredients that could harm my kids and an ability to make even the crustiest crustys come off of my counters and I had bought into the hype. During the holiday season they had this cranberry scent that I loooooved and I actually bought a bottle EVERY TIME I went to Target that holiday season ( apparently I went to Target a LOT because I’m only now on my last bottle and it’s AUGUST). I’m hoping they’ll bring the scent back next year ( fingers crossed) but even if they don’t I’m in love with plenty of their other scents and products that I probably won’t mind too much.
Ew, don’t look at my nasty nail polish, but LOOK AT MY GORGEOUS STOVE TOP!
With a husband and two kids with incredibly sensitive skin the type of hand soap I use is very important. And let’s be honest, I’m not the ONLY ONE who does dishes so my dish soap also needs to be gentle and all natural. Mrs. Meyers again, done and done.
Right now I’ve got the Lemon Verbena candle burning in my kitchen ( because friends, cauliflower may be good for you, but its NASTY smelling!) and I just finished up cleaning some pots and pans in a flash with the geranium dish soap. Basically in the half hour that it took me to complete my after dinner ritual I had used 4 Mrs. Meyers products. SO if you’re already a fan of Mrs. Meyers tell me what your favorite scents are! I have basically stuck with the Honeysuckle, Geranium and Lemon Verbena but I’m curious if anyone loves the Basil and Radish scents, I’ve been tempted but they seem earthier than maybe I am? Has anyone tried their all purpose cleaners or toilet cleaners?
Also, if you HAVEN’T jumped on the Mrs. Meyers train you totally need to! The products are natural, good for the environment and the humans that live in said environment, and when it comes to “natural products” they are very reasonably priced! You can pick up most of these products at Target, HEB, Whole Foods, World Market and tons of other locations! And if you live in a small town without many options you can always hit up the Mrs. Meyers website to order ( sometimes they have no shipping fee days which is awesome!) and also to find out where products are sold near you!
As always, I’m a terrible “blogger” and therefore I am absolutely NOT getting anything from the Mrs. Meyers company for writing this review! In fact, I have no idea how people go about getting those kinda freebies-but to be honest, this way you, my dear readers can always count on me to tell you the absolute true “Abigail Opinion” without any agenda or outside guidance, so win…I guess. haha!
