WHY WE DO WHAT WE DO AT SAINT OLIO

IMPACT OF CLEANING PRODUCTS ON LUNGS AS DAMAGING AS A 20-A-DAY CIGARETTE HABIT

When Saint Olio started, it was with the intent of creating a really, really lovely smelling product that was really, really safe for the user, their home and the environment. It will always be our mission to keep doing this. Chemicals found in traditional cleaning products are completely unregulated and often known carcinogens. A study of 6000 people has shown that the regular use of cleaning sprays declines long term lung function in women similar to that of a chronic smoker. These chemicals wreak HAVOC on the airways. Read link below for full article :

"I discovered this product in the least-likely of places—in a store packed to the brim with people. What should have smelled like a medley of unappealing scents (on that day, it was about 100 degrees in there), instead smelled like a flower shop filled with geraniums and roses. I felt so compelled by the scent that, after looking around for the candle or diffuser that I assumed was responsible for it, I asked a sales person for the source. I couldn't believe it when she said it was the cleaning products they used. Unlike most products, it didn't have any undertones of bleach, chemicals, fake lemon, or alcohol that I normally associate with even natural countertop cleaners, but instead smelled like a high-end candle. The first time I used it at home, Leslie even asked, "What candle are you burning?" I especially love that it's made from essential oils and natural ingredients, so it's completely non-toxic but effective. The beautiful bottle doesn't hurt, either."

Field Trip, a gorgeous lifestyle shop and workshop space that recently opened in SE Portland, just featured Saint Olio in A Conscious Gift Guide on Free + Native's blog. This holiday guide is not to miss! 

Here's what Field Trip's owner Kara Green said about our Sitka Aromatic Cleaner:

St Olio Cleaning Spray No.3 | This essential oil based cleaner has been my go-to for all surfaces around my house. The juniper woodsy scent makes your home smell like a spa! The glass bottle is reusable and every batch is handmade by a local Portland friend who uses only the purest oils. You won't want to go back to old cleaners after using this. 

Thanks Kara!

Blush Beauty Bar

Portland's Blush Beauty Bar is a cosmetics store specializing in high-end and hard-to-find makeup, waxing services, threading & facials.  Not your typical relaxation spa, owner Deborah Haynes opened Blush Beauty Bar in 2004 as a rebellion against the typical salon vibe.  Here, the walls are painted hot pink and upbeat tunes fill the space with active energy.  Saint Olio adds a touch of luxury to the party, freshening up the already smokin' shelves with some natural beauty flair.

Of A Kind

Before she founded her essential-oil-based line of all-purpose cleaners, Saint Olio, Sherri Kaven thought what she was using to wipe down her counters was environmentally friendly. “I started actually looking up the ingredients in this supposedly more natural spray, and it had all the same stuff I was trying to avoid,” Sherri says. Ok, so what exactly does she try to steer clear of? Read on, read on, at Of A Kind.
