After criticizing the tiny samples we were originally sent from a Celadon Road consultant, we were sent a box of full size products. If you are not familiar with Celadon Road, it is a company that sells eco-friendly products through hosted parties and independent consultants.
We've actually been contacted by a few Celadon Road consultants lately. The following samples were sent to us by Lowenna Prestel
Lemon Mint Glass Cleaner
More than Just a Natural Way to Eliminate Streaks. Shouldn't your glass cleaner do more than promise to eliminate streaks? Celadon Road's™ Lemon Mint Glass Cleaner does! Not just the natural way to leave windows sparkling and clean, it's also an all purpose cleaner that boasts a fresh scent which naturally repels flies. Plus, safe for everyone to use...Next time, you can accept your little one's enthusiastic offer to help - worry free!
Naturally Conquer Unpleasant Aromas. Do dingy diapers, fishy cuisine or the kitty's potty leave your home feeling, well... not so fresh? Celadon Road's™ Odor Eliminator destroys odor naturally, freshens instantly and eliminates those unwanted smells on contact. Non-toxic, biodegradable and safe to use around children and pets, it's a safe and effective weapon to combat food, pet, smoke and other unpleasant aromas
Life happens, and in your home, stains happen! But, dangerous chemicals and harmful fumes aren't the only option. With Celadon Road's™ all-natural Stain Remover, made with Certified Organic ingredients, safely remove food, beverage, blood, pet, mold and mildew stains from nearly any hard surface, carpet or hard-to-reach spot. Safe to use around children and pets.
Jasmine Laundry Detergent
Conquer Laundry Mountain Naturally. With the essence of pure essential oils, it takes only 1-2 tablespoons of Celadon Road's™ low-sudsing Jasmine Laundry Detergent to work its all-natural magic on any dreaded laundry mountain! Use in regular or high efficiency washers. Dissolve in water for washing floors and walls. An all-natural family formula, this detergent was originally created to ease the suffering of a child with eczema aggravated by commercial laundry products.
Butter Bar Soap
Soothing Shea Butter Butter Bar Soap. With our natural shea butter formula, this is one bar of soap that will soothe even the most sensitive skin gently. Leaving your body moisturized and beautifully radiant, our formula won't irritate your skin and creates a healthy and natural cleansing experience.
All of these products are priced affordably. I do like the smell of the glass cleaner, and I did not worry when my dog started licking the door after I had cleaned it. The ingredient lists are simple and natural, which is something I truly appreciate.
I wish the products were more easily accessible though. After my parents' experience with Amway, I can't help but feel suspicious of multi-level marketing companies. I hope the Celadon Road consultants, which I imagine include a lot of stay-at-home moms, are successful! These are nice, natural products!
disclosure: The products described above were sent to us as free samples. Prior assurances as to the nature of the reviews, whether positive or negative, were not given. No financial payments were accepted in exchange for the reviews. The reviews reflect our honest, authentic opinions.
