LET'S REDUCE OUR TOXIC LOAD TOGETHER
with doTERRA ESSENTIAL OILS
Grab a bottle and get mixing. Your body, mind, allergies, hormones and the planet will thank you for it!
Yoga mat cleaning spray
Perfect non-toxic cleaning solution for busy yoga mats!
The essential oils also purify the air making for an enhanced yoga or meditation practice
For a 100ml bottle (I go for amber glass spray bottles)
5 drops Lavender 5 drops Tea Tree Essential oil
10 drops Lemon Essential oil
1 part witch hazel (alcohol free) and the rest of the bottle topped up with distilled water
(not all mats are suitable for this spray, standard sticky mats are fine, I used this formula to clean my mats)
Multi-Surface Citrus Spray
For a 300ml bottle (I go for amber glass spray bottles)
1 part white vinegar or apple cider vinegar
2 parts water
6 drops On Guard Essential oil blend
6 drops Lemon Essential oil
6 drops Wild Orange Essential oil
6 drops Tea Tree Essential oil
1 drop Oregano Essential oil
You’ll need a glass bowl, a pastry brush or similar, scrub sponge, spoon and gloves.
2 tablespoons Castile liquid soap
1⅓ cup baking soda
6 drops doTERRA Wild Orange essential oil – a great aroma and it’s also antibacterial and contains powerful antimicrobial compounds
¼ cup white vinegar or apple cider vinegar
In a glass bowl, blend all ingredients, using the water to help form a thick paste.
Use the pastry brush to brush onto the oven surface until completely coated.
Allow it to sit for about 8 hours or overnight.
Wear your gloves and wipe clean using a sponge and clean water. You’ll probably need to change the bowl of water a few times. Job done!
As above as well as some extra lemon oil to cut through sticky grease.
Wipe out with a warm cloth and a few drops of Lemon oil.
It smells so good and also gets all the sticky stuff off your shelves from spills. This is especially great after being away on holiday and the fridge has been shut up for a while too!
Pop a few drops of Lemon or Lime Essential Oil in the rise aid section of the dishwasher.
In a large jar add:
2 cups washing soda (get it from your laundry Isle at the supermarket)
1 cup baking soda
1 cup citric acid
1 cup standard table salt (do not use Epsom salt, as it is full of minerals and used by aquarium enthusiasts to harden water.)
30 drops Lemon essential oil
30 drops Wild Orange essential oil
Get a wooden spoon and give it a big stir.
Add a heaped tablespoon to each wash.
Other oils you can use are Tea Tree and any other Citrus oil.
Dish Cloth Loving
Before you go to bed pop a few drops of citrus oil on your dish cloth (I keep s bottle right next to the sink!) overnight your kitchen will refresh in fragrance and no yucky stinky cloths for benches.
Tip: leaving the kitchen tidy at night makes SUCH a difference to the start of your day.
Pop a few drops of Cedarwood Oil on cotton balls and place in cupboards.
