Let’s get the party started. Turn on and turn up the music. Music makes the task so much more pleasant. Music has been shown to uplift the mood, lessen anxious feelings and even lessen pain. Music has positive physical effects. It can produce direct biological changes such as reducing heart rate and decreasing blood pressure and cortisol levels. Let’s take this to the next level and diffuse an invigorating oil such as dōTERRA’s Wild Orange essential oil since it is an air cleanser. The scent of Wild Orange citrus oil can improve and lift your mood. Add two drops to your water for enhanced flavor and to help improve metabolic function. Therefore burning more calories while cleaning. Add to surface cleaners to enhance cleaning power.
Throw your laundry in the washing machine and use Onguard laundry Detergent. It is color safe for washable fabrics at all temperatures and is free of synthetic fragrances, dyes, and toxins. Next is a fantastic recipe for homemade fabric softener. Mix 6 cups of water, 1/2 cup baking soda, and then slowly add 3 cups white vinegar and allow chemical interaction. Then add 10-20 drops of citrus bliss, lavender, or your favorite essential oil. Use one cup of fabric softener in the final rinse. Pop the clothes in the dryer and apply your favorite oil, about 2-3 drops directly on a dryer ball. My favorite to use is wild orange. All your clothes smell fabulous plus they are clean.
Next let’s clean our make-up brushes. Make-up brushes can easily grow bacteria that can cause eye issues and skin irritation. A great Recipe is to combine 3 tablespoons of doterra onguard cleaner concentrate and 1 1/2 tablespoons of fractionated coconut oil. Wash brushes and rinse well, then let brushes air dry. All-purpose cleaning wipes recipe uses 1/2 roll of paper towels, 2 cups of warm water, 2 tablespoons of fractionated coconut oil, and 2 tablespoons of doterra onguard cleaner concentrate. Pour mixture over 1/2 roll of paper towels and let sit for ten minutes. I find this so handy to wipe the counters. So simple to use throughout the house. Make sure to follow up with a dry cloth for a streak-free finish. Dish soap recipe is so simple, combine 3 tablespoons of doterra cleaner concentrate and 1 gallon of water. Not only is your laundry clean and fresh smelling, but the whole house is spotless without toxins. You have definitely saved $$$. TILL NEXT TIME CLEANING WITH THE NATURAL MADE.
