Stop and smell the cleaning products

I'd like to introduce you to a friend I've never met. She keeps me company when I do my household chores. Her name is Thelma A. Meyer, and she's a real person with a home in Iowa and a camper in Arizona, both of which need cleaning from time to time. Before I discovered Mrs. Meyer's aromatherapeutic cleaning products, I used to dread cleaning because the artificial scents in most conventional cleaning products brought on such severe allergic symptoms that I felt like I was coming down with a cold whenever I used them.

Then I discovered Mrs. Meyer's products, all of which use natural essential oils instead of artificial scents. That was several years ago, and since then I've refused to use any other cleaning products in my home. Although Mrs. Meyer's is a big company and they don't usually deal with small sites such as ours, they've made an exception for us and agreed to become one of our sponsors.

Mrs. Meyer's has changed the way I feel about what used to be an unpleasant chore. Now whether I'm doing laundry, washing dishes, cleaning the counters, mopping the floor, or scrubbing the bathroom, I actually enjoy the work thanks to the delicious smells of lavender, geranium, lemon verbena, basil, and more that are blended into Mrs. Meyer's cleaning products.

If you practice aromatherapy, or if you'd just like to incorporate it into your cleaning practice, you might want to give Mrs. Meyer's earth-friendly, cruelty-free products a try. Click here to find out more.

World T'ai Chi and Qigong Day

In Japan it's ki, in China it's chi or qi. Either way, it's universal life force energy. You're invited to join My Chi Qigong as we celebrate the 10th Anniversary of World T'ai Chi and Qigong Day April 26 (but hurry: spaces are going fast). And if you're not in the New York City area, there may be a World T'ai Chi and Qigong Day event near you. More than 60 countries and all 50 U.S. states are participating. Kudos and thanks to Bill and Angela Wong Douglas for all they have done to promote energy cultivation exercises worldwide.
