Jordan Essentials is well known for its quality Bath & Body, Skincare, and Hair care products. But did you know that Jordan Essentials can help you with your Spring Cleaning around the house, too? At Jordan Essentials, we believe in providing only the best quality products made from nontoxic ingredients so you can have Healthy Skin and a Healthy Life, and the foundation of a healthy life is a Healthy Home!
Here are a few startling statistics about the average American home and the level of toxicity that may be affecting the health of the families and pets who live there. (How does YOUR home compare?) reference:
The average home today contains over 150 toxic chemicals – more than a chemistry lab at the turn of the century, and these chemicals have been linked to allergies, birth defects, cancer, headaches and migraines, leukemia, Alzheimer’s, and psychological abnormalities. (Source: Consumer Product Safety Commission)
Over 50% of all illnesses can be linked to poor indoor air quality. We spend approximately 90% of our time indoors, and 65% of our time at home. Moms, infants and elderly spend 90% of their time at home.
Toxic chemicals in the home get into our bodies through inhalation, ingestion, and absorption.
Household cleaners are the number one cause of poisoning in children.
Many household cleaners contain ingredients like formaldehyde, phenol, benzene, toluene, and xylene, which have all been found to be toxic to the immune system.
Toxic chemicals in the home can be found in daily use items like household cleaners, cosmetics, pesticides, soaps (laundry, dish, body), air fresheners, and candles.
Toxins that enter the body must be eliminated through the body’s filtration system, namely the liver and kidneys. If overloaded, the body will store these toxins in fat tissue to be dealt with later. The brain and breast tissue are especially at risk because of the high fat content and rich blood supply.
To reduce the level of toxic exposure in your home, try switching to Jordan Essentials for your cosmetic, bath & body, skin care, and hair care needs. Then, take a good look at what you are using to clean your home. You can replace those toxic household cleaners with Jordan Essentials too!

Resistance is a powerful blend of cinnamon, clove, rosemary, lemon, and eucalyptus essential oils that has been found to be an effective tool in combating bacteria, viruses, mold, and mildew.

For those stubborn messes that need a little more elbow grease, try making your own soft scrub. Combine in a glass bowl 3 tablespoons Jordan Essentials Foaming Hand Soap (measure out the liquid from the bottle), 1 cup baking soda, and 15 drops of Jordan Essentials Lemon Essential Oil. Mix together into a paste and store in an airtight glass container. To use, take a small amount on a damp cloth and scrub the surface. If the stains are really tough, let the mixture sit for a few minutes, then scrub and rinse.
In a spray bottle, combine 2 cups distilled water, 2 tablespoons white vinegar, and 10 drops of Jordan Essentials Orange Essential Oil. Shake well to combine. Squirt a small amount on surface, then wipe away with a damp mop or cloth.
