doTerra Essential Oils Cleaning Recipes
By using doTerra Essential Oils Cleaning Recipes, I can 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 to 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. On the off chance they don’t, I will supply my cleaner. Sometimes, I have 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. I can quickly pray down carts and know that I’m killing the germs.
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 Lemon. Please be mindful that your spray bottle needs to be glass if you use Lemon. Those are my favorites. I also throw a capful of Onguard Concentrate in there. This basic setup is what I use for all my cleaning throughout my house.
I put baking soda in a parmesan bottle, and then I mix about ten drops of Purify in with it. I shake it up and use it as a carpet deodorizer. Let it set on the floor for about 10 minutes. Then vacuum it up.
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.
For windows, combine vinegar, water, rubbing alcohol, and essential oil of your choice. Spray it on and wipe it off with a newspaper. That, for some reason, keeps it from streaking too severely.
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 like 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.
Mix vinegar, water, essential oil, and Onguard concentrate (are you gathering a theme here)? Choosing to go green in my cleaning is what I have to do right now. I have to adjust to aid in the health of my son. In my home, I will do what I have to do. I will no longer be filling my home with nonsense and chemicals.
