The Meaning Behind the Name
Gaia (pronounced guy-a)
Gaia is a Greek term for mother earth, earth goddess, ancestral mother of all life. She offers life and nourishment to all her children. It is a very meaningful word.
We get this question all the time:
"Why the name Gaia?"
In the beginning, when I was developing my line of household cleaners, I had only one thing in mind... use ingredients that have been offered to us by mother nature. Nothing fake, nothing bad. So when it came to naming my company the only term that made total sense to me and one that I thought would “tell the story” as to how natural my cleaners were was quite simply, GAIA.
The Story of Gaia...
As I continue to expand our cleaning product line this same logic remains...using only those ingredients that are supplied to us naturally, through mother earth.
Gaia is now offering additional products that are complimentary to my cleaners. My partner, Rachel, and I are determined to research, test, and offer you the most eco-friendly cleaning accessories and home care products on the market.
Gaia Natural Home is your trusted source for cleaners, cleaning accessories and home care products for your home and family.
