Penny has worked in the house cleaning industry for over 20 years. After 10 years of cleaning houses with commercial cleaning products she began having health issues and feeling ill during work. She sought help for her health issues and found out that the chemicals in the cleaning products she was using for work were the cause of these health problems. Penny wanted to keep house cleaning so she started researching and experimenting with ways to clean houses all naturally and without using harsh chemicals or artificial ingredients. After using different types of natural, non-toxic cleaning products while cleaning her own home she soon noticed a difference in how she felt. She was able to clean houses without feeling ill. Eventually Penny started making her own All-Natural household cleaning products and Marigold & Ivy was born.
