WHY FUSION MINERAL PAINT?
Recently I have been posting a lot about a paint line that Jennylyn, the CEO of Fusion Mineral Paint, and I created. Inspired by the Herbals that I work with in my Botanical Apothecary, we are overJOYed with this collaboration and the creation of the Lisa Marie Holmes Signature Paint Collection.
This collaboration has been an incredible experience because I have been able to bridge my passion for a << Healthy Home >> which includes our body as well as the structure of the home that we live in, with my personal creative flair for interior and exterior design. How, you ask? Well, Fusion Mineral Paint is proud to produce a VOC free, non-toxic, lead free, ammonia and formaldehyde free paint. Ah Ha! And with that we have a harmonious **fusion** (pun intended).
Have you ever heard of VOCs? VOC stands for: Volatile Organic Compounds. I first learnt about VOCs in medical school as they have been shown to be harmful to our health and act as a possible contributing factor to headaches, sinus and throat irritation, liver and kidney damage, and even cancer. The second time I heard about them was from my husband who is in the construction industry. Talk of harmful VOCs is strongly recognized within his profession as VOCs are often found in paints, glues, air fresheners, cleaning products, etc…
Okay so why Fusion Mineral Paint? Well seeing that my priority is to protect our << Home >> I am always ensuring that the products I bring into my family’s home supports my goals. Beyond the amazing quality that Fusion upholds, Jennylyn and I had so much fun dreaming up the most beautiful colour palette. It was such a natural and beautiful joint venture and as you can see in my previous Facebook & Instagram posts, there is a story behind every colour and every Herb.
I am relatively new to the DIY scene but my appreciation for all things beautiful was really nurtured during season one of Holmes & Holmes, where for the first time in my life, I had so much fun learning what it takes to make a home beautiful and, of course, healthy.

I love seeing everyone’s beautiful creations with these grounding, neutral, earth tone colours. Please keep posting and tagging me so that I can continue to follow along and see the beauty that you create. Thank you for inviting me into your << healthy home >>.
Sending Love and Light
