A few years ago I began making my own household cleaner. Initially, I used a mason jar and infused organic lemons, limes, oranges and grapefruits with vinegar and spring water. When I was gifted with an abundance of organic rosemary sprigs, I decided to repurpose them and make cleaners for my friends and family. I infused the rosemary sprigs into my homemade cleaner and it created a fresh, aromatic scent that indulged all the senses. I was impressed at how well it cleaned everything!
I have been using essential oils for health and wellness for over 20 years. Although I have much to learn, I have experienced their incredible extensive healing benefits.
I was having a conversation with a colleague who was intrigued by essential oils and I had mentioned that I had been making my own cleaner using essential oils. I offered to make her a bottle, placed a few canning jar labels on it and jokingly wrote "Brie's Botanicals" on it.
To this day, I am filled with gratitude for the feedback I was given and continue to receive. Everyone is amazed at how well it cleans and how lovely it smells. A good friend of mine told me that if I placed a nice label on it and put it in a nice bottle, she would carry it in her store. I hadn't thought about this as a business, just a hobby, but why not!
Through trial and error, I experimented with a variety of different oils in my cleaner. I came up with a wonderful product that cleans extremely well while providing an all natural, eco friendly and healthy cleaning alternative and an overall therapeutic experience!
I am humbled and grateful to now offer Brie's Botanicals to everyone!
