How I Clean My House with Lavender

After we made this video, my video guy, Dakota, had a giant smile and his face. He said, “Wow, that lavender is so amazing, my head feels so clear and I feel so happy!”

That is what fumigating your kitchen and home with lavender does. It cleans out the grunge. Not just bacterial grunge but mental gunk too.

Lavender is the happy herb. This simple home remedy technique can help clean up your home in more ways than one.

Lavender’s name comes from Latin roots, ‘lavare’ which means to wash. We use the medicine of lavender to ‘wash’ on many levels.

Lavender is highly anti-bacterial and when steamed into the air, it dis-infects and kills bacteria.

I do home steams preventively in the evening during cold and flu season. Fumigating your house with a lavender steam will help to rid the house of any sickness and have everyone feeling relaxed and happy

After you try it, let me know how the people in your home respond to the aroma of lavender filling the house….

Hello I’m Kami, Welcome to Living Awareness!

I believe every family needs to have someone on board with a working knowledge of natural remedies if you want to take care of your family’s health for real.

When I was growing up, natural remedies was not a mainstream concept like it is now, in fact, you are going to be surprised that I never even heard the word natural remedy until I moved out of the house!

In my early 20’s I met someone by chance that told me about holistic health and herbal medicine. I wondered why nobody had talked to me about it before and had a voracious appetite to learn everything I could.

Now, 30 years later I've helped thousands of people demystify the world of herbal medicine and become empowered in using herbal self-care in their home to prevent illness, take care of common ailments and protect their health naturally.

For 20 years I've had a clinical herbal practice connecting people with plants and their wellness. I've developed and taught herbal curriculum for UCSF School of Nursing and the Integral Health Master’s Degree Program at the California Institute of Integral Studies.

Stick with me! You’ll learn awesome herbal self-care, get inspired to be more self-sufficient in your health care and nourish a deep love for the herbs and how to use them, knowing you are doing the very best you can to care for your wellness.
