guest post | brianna @ healthy home company + a giveaway


i have some fun bizz going on today for the blog. i get to introduce an idaho gal! so obviously she's near and dear to my heart. above and beyond that...she's known my farmer since they were just young. (what i wouldn't give to know my farmer as a pre-teen...i can only imagine.) anyway...

brianna is here on the blog today to teach us all about a company she is involved with called healthy home company. girlfriend is passionate about what healthy home company offers to keep our nearest and dearest safe and toxin free.

brianna was also sweet enough to send me some goodies to try around my own home...and no complaints here!

obviously my very most favorite is called clean. it's a 10 in 1 product that you can spray on everything. and since i'm a clean-spraying machine...well...it rocked. and the orange scent didn't get old either.
the other product i'm already on board with is the sunscreen. with the amount of outside time we log i'm constantly worried about making sure kaye is covered up. and now that i'm going to have a young muffin tagging along...times that worry by 1000. 

if you haven't heard the rumors...there's some pretty nasty stuff in your run-of-the-mill sunscreen and babies aren't even supposed to wear sunscreen until after they are six months old. 

but if it's a product that's all natural and toxin-free...well why not. 

i've been slathering it on the turtle for the past few weeks and no complaints. that's a win here on the farm. 
anyway...i'd love for you all to get to know brianna better as well as healthy home company, so have a read of our little q + a below!

KARLI | brianna - before we really dive in, tell us about yourself.

BRIANNA | i've been married for 10 1/2 years now. i married my high school sweetheart! we have two kids: jayce, 4 and callen, 2.

my husband and i are both hard workers. he works for dex media and i work for a company called heart 'n home hospice as a volunteer coordinator and program rep. on the side, i am building a healthy home business.

KARLI | why did you get involved with the healthy home company? how did you first hear about them?

BRIANNA | a sorority sister of mine showed me a video called the toxic 12 and i was read to get involved with healthy home right away. i had no idea ll the harmful chemicals that we use on a daily basis, especially the cancer causing chemicals that i was using on my children! as soon as i  learned, i haven't been the same! i have a great time sharing the mission of the healthy home company to my friends and family. i love that i don't have to sell anything. i just present the information and people are usually very excited for a one-stop-shop for all things toxic-free.
KARLI | i really need to get my act together. the message you're sharing here is so important and simple. i mean...it's just about healthier living.

so...i'm guessing you're probably really into ALL the products, but which are your very very most favorite? if someone were just getting started and didn't want to spend a bunch, which would you direct them to?

BRIANNA | i DO love all the products! i would suggest starting with the sanitizer. (i don't leave home without it.) you know, kids are playing and they fall down...use the sanitizer. then at normal places like bathrooms, walmart carts, animal bad breath, eye wash (if you have bad allergies)...really i spray this stuff on EVERYTHING. (i'm kind of like the windex grandpa from my big fat greek wedding.)
i would also recommend clean, which is a 10 in 1 cleaner. you can use it for windows, floors, dishes, laundry...just one product needs to be under your sink or laundry room cabinet. it's absolutely amazing stuff.
and my third favorite is called remedy. this replaces neosporin or any bug bite, diaper rash ointments, etc. my son had really bad excema and it's soooo much better with this. my husband had loss of pigment on his forehead and this has cleared it up dramatically! i have also heard it helps with shingles and psoriasis. see...amazing stuff! the best part about toxic-free is that you can really try them on anything and it doesn't matter!

KARLI | well...what with welcoming a new baby gal in just days...i can tell you i'm sold. i think for me it's just about changing my mind-set regarding convenience. but just a little extra effort can make a difference in our home...the place my girls and i spend SO MUCH TIME.

i'd love to read more. is there a newsletter or e-mail subscription people can get on?

BRIANNA | yes! if your readers just want to e-mail me with any questions or would like to get on our mailing list for monthly specials or learning about new products, i can help with that.

  1. is the folic acid in the Body with Multivitamin folate or the synthetic folic acid?

    1. Wow! I'm so impressed you looked at all the ingredients in the Body! That vitamin is amazing and has given me so much more energy! The Folic Acid in the Body is Folate, which is from the Vitamin B in the drink. You won't find synthetic or GMO in any of our products.

      If you need a Pre-Natal, then you would want the "Fortify" since it doesn't have the Detox agent in it and has more Iron in it.

      Thanks for the great question!

  2. Is the Strong safe to use on marble and granite countertops too? What a shocking video you've posted too. It's certainly inspired me to make some lifestyle choices!

    1. I'm glad you watched the Video Jenna! That's what scared me into looking around my home! YES the Strong is safe on Marble and Granite Countertops. That's what's great about Chemical and Toxic-Free Products... they are safe on Everything!

  3. Wow they sell everything! How is the coffee? What would you compare it to?

    1. Hi Emily! YES! Healthy Home wants to be your One-Stop-Shop for everything Toxic Free, so we will continue to add products on a regular basis. The coffee is what we like to call Rocket Fuel. You will not need to drink near as much as you are used to and you will use about 1/4 of the amount of coffee in the maker each morning. It's actually really hard to compare the coffee to another brand since I had never tried a Toxic- Free coffee. Without the chemicals it tastes completely different and AMAZING!! I have also been a little coffee w/ a lot of creamer kind of gal and now I can drink it much darker!!

  4. Do you find the makeup long-lasting? Love the colors!

    1. I have been the most shocked with how much I love the makeup! I find the foundation and eye makeup longer lasting than any other that I have tried. I also don't feel like it smudges like the other brands I've tried. They ship the makeup from New Zealand and it's made from the Manuka plant which has lots of healing qualities in it.

  5. Do their cleaning products really clean well?

    1. I have been SHOCKED at how well the "Clean" cleans my house! It's a 10 in 1 cleaner!! Laundry and Dish soap, multipurpose cleaner, Window cleaner... you name it! I have been so impressed! A little goes a long way! The bottle gives you instructions on how much to use for what you are cleaning.
      The "Strong" is a deeper cleaner (I use it for my toilets and really hard clothes stains.) I have never been disappointed. And the Clean smells like Oranges and the Strong is Lemon scent. Thanks for asking!

  6. Hi, just came across this post and am very interested in the products. Do you find they last a long time (i.e., the price is higher than what I normally buy and wondering if it's worth it)? Also, how strong is the scent on the Clean? And have you used the children's multivitamin yet?

    1. Hi Nicole! It depends on what products you are interested in trying and their shelf life. After you open the liquid vitamin (Body) you would want to use it with in about 45 days. A bottle of clean lasts me a little over 1 month (only because I do so much laundry with my kiddos.) I have been very impressed with how long the makeup lasts. These products might be a little more than what you are paying for but they should last a lot longer then products with a bunch of fillers and chemicals. Because we don't use any fillers, the product is pure and lasts a lot longer. I hope this helps!

    2. Nicole I forgot to mention that my boys liked both the Liquid Children's and the "Candy" Tablets that they take every day. I ended up sticking to the Chewable Vitamins since they like to get them out all by themselves. :)

    3. Hi Nicole,

      I would like to send every one who participated a little Healthy Home Gift! Email me your contact info and I'll get a little gift to you! briannawalter@gmail.com

      Thanks!

  7. I saw that they had many vitamins, but no pre-natal vitamins. Is this something that they would consider adding in the future?

  8. Hi Darby! We actually do have Pre-natal vitamins, but we have named it differently since some people need to take the extra iron even when they aren't pregnant. So check out the "Fortify" vitamin and that will have everything you are looking for in a Pre-natal vitamin. Good question!
