doTerra Essential Oils Cleaning Recipes

By using doTerra Essential Oils Cleaning Recipes, I am able to do many things. I can keep my home super clean, smelling good, and safe for my medically fragile preschooler. Choosing this path helps us all.

Due to the knowledge that my baby is allergic to cleaning products, I have had to be diligent.  Luckily, I stopped using conventional cleaners, a long time ago.  The people, buildings, and offices that I have to take him too still, understandably, use chemical based products.  I get it, I do, but I also have to be mindful of his health.

Most Places We Go

They are pretty good about cleaning their facility with the cleaners I bring.  We really are blessed with great people in our lives.  In the off chance, they don’t, and something needs to be cleaned, I’ve been known to BYOC (Bring my Own Cleaner).  This is why it has been so helpful to think outside of the box and utilize my doTerra Essential Oils and create some cleaning powerhouse recipes.
We carry diluted Onguard with us everywhere.  I also have the Onguard Sanitizing Mist in my purse.  This makes it incredibly easy to spray down carts and know that I’m killing the germs.

All-Purpose Cleaners

For my house, we are SUPER simple.  I bought a large plastic spray bottle, vinegar, water, and my choice of doTerra Essential Oils.  I pour about 1 c. Vinegar in the bottle, top it off with water and add 10-20 drops of oil.  I have used Melaleuca, Onguard, and/or Lemon (be mindful that your spray bottle needs to be glass if you use Lemon).  Those really are my favorites.  You can also use Rosemary, Lavender, Eucalyptus, Wild Orange is great for grease stains.  I also throw a capful of Onguard Concentrate in there.  This basic setup is what I use for all my cleaning, throughout my house.

Carpet Deodorizer

I put baking soda in a parmesan bottle, and then I mix about 10 drops of Purify in with it.  I shake it up and use it has a carpet deodorizer.  Let it set on the floor for about 10 minutes and then vacuum it up.

Carpet Cleaner

Now, in my carpet cleaner.  I mix hot water, a splash of vinegar, a splash of Onguard concentrate, and Lemon.  Never have I used the premade carpet cleaner solution.

Laundry

There is also an Onguard concentrate detergent that I will be using to throw in my washing machine, with my Tide (yes, I use Tide).

Glass Cleaner

For glass cleaner, vinegar, water, a splash of rubbing alcohol, and your essential oil of choice.  Spray it on and wipe it off with a newspaper.  That, for some reason, keeps it from streaking too severely.

Air Freshener

My air freshener is witch hazel, water, and usually Lavender.  I spray it as I would Febreze.  For my diffuser, hands down, my favorite is Purify.  Especially in the boys’ room because it smells of dead animals, butt, and a hint of sweat.  Not a whole lot could help the odor in my boys’ room unless I got a blow torch after it LOL

Floors

My floors, we used vinegar,  water, essential oil, and Onguard concentrate (are you gathering a theme here)?  This is my life, and I have to adjust to aid in the health of my son.  I will do what I have to do.  I will no longer be filling my home with nonsense and chemicals.
