Since I've been using essential oils I have been overwhelmed by the vast array of uses for each individual oil AND different oil combinations!
One of the most incredible things I have found is how effective my home made products are! Often more-so than conventional supermarket products.
My favourite recipe that I use for my All Purpose Cleaner is so easy to make and so much cheaper than my previous kitchen/ bathroom cleaning products AND toxin free.
Why is toxin free important? Hey, maybe to you it's not. And that is cool. I am not here to judge! As a soon-to-be Mumma bear it's been a totally natural instinct to move toward a lifestyle with a lower toxic load.
If you need a little convincing, I can accommodate that too.
1. It's less work for your body - your body is doing enough as it is and working hard constantly to keep us healthy. Why not give our bodies a break and lessen it's workload eh?
2. It's not just one-off either, our system's sadly don't rid ourselves of these chemicals quickly - these things build up in our system and may cause chronic illness over time.
3. More environmentally friendly - what's better for us is also better for mother nature!
So, you want to know my All Purpose Cleaning Spray ingredients?
I thought you'd never ask!
In a 500ml bottle I combine the following:
- 1/4 cup Castile Soap **
- 1/4 cup White Vinegar
- 5 drops doTerra On Guard
- 5 drops doTerra Wild Orange
- 5 drops doTerra Tea Tree
- 5 drops doTerra Lemon
Viola! Bonus - it smells AMAZING!
** I buy this off eBay as it's the most cost effective, may as well go bulk if you're wanting to make the switch to tox free life!
