This time of year a lot of people are suffering from the dreaded seasonal allergies, but if you are like some of the staff here at Upaya, some have suffered all year long with allergies. One of the biggest allergies is to scent and even some of their family members have experience this too. One staff member found the hardest thing to eliminate the scent from was laundry. They tried all the brands out there and if one person wasn’t bothered by it, another one was. Upon starting work here at Upaya, aside from working in a dreamland environment of scent free, they spotted what they had been looking for, the answer to their scent problem, Nut Berries or better known as Eco Nuts.
Eco nuts are berries that grow in the Himalayas and they naturally produce soap. They don’t cost much either. If you were to compare the price of regular laundry soap to that of the Eco nuts per load, you would find that you are saving money with the Eco nuts. You only have to use 3 to 5 in a little bag and your laundry comes out clean and scent free, also fabric doesn’t thin out as fast and the colour stays longer. The best part is those 3 to 5 nuts can be used up to 5 or more loads. It is quite amazing how they work, try it out for yourself and you will see. We have Eco Nuts available in liquid form for those that like to toss, wash and go, or the whole nut form (which is so much fun, kids have been known to start offering up to do laundry too – ahem, at least offering to do the Eco Nuts part of it…)
This company also makes a beautiful selection of linen sprays, and drawer sachets. There is nothing like some fresh non-toxic scent that is actually from essential oils combinations that are truly dreamlike, some fresh, some relaxing. What is best in our opinion is that they are fine to also spray directly onto the skin! Most linen sprays you cannot safely do this with, so check them out!
