    Why Green Potions is Awesome

    It’s Completely Palm-Oil Free

    At Biome, we are committed to offering products that are completely free of palm oil.

    Everything we sell is 100% free of untraceable palm oil, and we are the only retail store in the world to be approved by Palm Oil Investigations.

    Made with all Natural Ingredients

    Everything that goes into Green Potions is completely natural and free from any petrochemicals and toxins, giving you a wholly natural cleaning experience.

    100% pure essential oils are used to create lovely fragrances, and with as little as two ingredients in some products, you can rest assured only the purest and most effective natural ingredients are going to be used in your home.

    Best of all, even though they’re only made with natural stuff, they’re also super effective at their job. In 2010, a Manager from a cafe at NASA requested a product sample of their Kitchen Exhaust Degreaser and were amazed by the results!

    All Products are Zero Waste

    Living zero or low waste is something many of us are passionate about.

    Why buy products where the packaging contributes to landfill, and the end life of the product itself is destined for the dump?

    Spending money on higher-quality, longer-lasting, reusable and recyclable products is not only better for the planet, but for your wallet in the long term.

    When you buy a Green Potions product, not only can you recycle the soft-plastic labels at your nearest Redcycle collection point, but you can reuse or recycle the glass mason jars, and reuse the spray bottles for your own homemade products.

    Supports a Local Queensland Business

    Green Potions is made by Amanda Choy, a small-business owner based in Queensland who is committed to creating natural, safe and healthy household products.

    Amanda has 10 years’ experience running a natural cleaning business, Green Domestics. Taking on private cleaning, then rental bond cleans, Amanda noticed some of the green cleaners she was using simply weren’t doing the job, and make Amanda’s day longer and more tiring.

    From this, Amanda decided she wanted to make her own range of cleaning supplies. She made (and is still making) the products in her own kitchen, trialing new Potions in her own home, and learning what natural ingredients work best. From this, she made the best Potions possible.

    “Our prime reason for making these products is so others can use natural ingredients instead of the harmful chemicals, that often don’t even work anyway and only increase their risk of contracting health issues due to the chemicals” Amanda told Biome.

    Because Green Potions is a local business, each product has a smaller carbon footprint, so transporting it to your home is better for the environment. And you’ll also be supporting a small Australian business that puts a lot of love into their creations.

    Now that we’ve convinced you how great Green Potions is, have a look at the products below and see which ones you can use in your home.
