BAKING SODA

Absorbs and eliminates odor. Use to clean countertops, sinks, and tubs, as well as to freshen soft surfaces like furniture, beds and carpet.

Salt is an effective scouring agent. Pour salt mixed with hot water down the kitchen sink regularly to deodorize and keep grease from building up

Essential Oil Selection Tips...

*Use high quality CPTG essential oils, so you know they are safe

*Use an aromatherapy resource guide to select oils based on their properties.  

*Through the fall and winter, I use a protective blend called On Guard to support the immune system.  In the spring and summer, citrus oils like wild orange and lemon because lift my mood!

*Pick oils that smell good to you!

*Switch it up for the season

*Experiment with different combos

*Less is More!  A good rule of thumb for mixing your own recipes for cleaning is 3-10 drops essential oil per 16 ounces of liquid (water or vinegar)

"DoTerra has changed our family in many ways. We having been using essential oils for 5 years. On Guard Concentrate is probably my biggest asset to our health. I use it to clean everything from my kitchen to laundry to the bathroom. Being a chemical free home has been a huge plus for us. I was gifted another “natural” cleaner for Christmas. I used it for about two weeks and we all ended up with colds. That is the first one in 4 years that the entire family had been sick. I think it is because I didn’t use On Guard to clean with for two weeks. I threw the other cleaner away and went back to what works!" Brandi R. 

Use Essential Oils Safely

Essential oils are safe for the skin, however, as with any kind of essential oil use, it is always important to follow safety guidelines in order to avoid irritation or unsafe use.
