From the Publisher

Home Enlightenment has the power to change the way we live and breathe. You will feel healed--and whole--just by reading this book: It's a beautiful thing. Annie B. Bond, mistress of the green household and expert on chemical poisoning, gives us remedies for the toxins that ail us. She spells out the ingredients for the good life and the illuminating benefits of sun and candlelight, and she identifies the quiet needs of the everyday. Stockpile copies of Home Enlightenment and give them to everyone you care about.” —Amy Goldman, advocate for agricultural biodiversity and author of three books on heirloom vegetables: The Compleat Squash, Melons for the Passionate Grower, and The Heirloom Tomato

“Change is all about knowing what to change. We as a culture have much to change, and it's always a question how we should make those changes. In a style ‘only Annie,' Annie opens the door to your home, reveals the invisible, and helps you weave necessary change into everyday life. I have followed Annie's sound advice for years.” —Jeffrey Hollender, president of Seventh Generation, Inc.

I have the first edition of Home Enlightenment and just looked the new book over and like changes. I am a green interior designer and have found Home Enlightenment to be a very useful reference for my work. it covers a wide assortment of topics, but centers on creating a green and toxic-free environment. I also like how the elements--earth, water, fire and air--are incorporated into daily living. Bond is tireless in her research for this book and it is jam-packed with information about what products are eco-friendly, how to clean everything and much more. I also practice Feng Shui, so Home Enlightenment,Harmonious Environment: Beautify, Detoxify and Energize Your Life, Your Home and Your Planet(for green, Feng Shui and a beautiful home) and Feng Shui Tips for a Better Life are always in easy reach in my office.
