This stuff is AMAZING!!!

So…we had a few housekeeping issues today that I was able to take care of with a few drops of Young Living Lemon Oil.  This is an AWESOME way to take care of things in your home without having to use toxic cleaners and chemicals.  Plus it’s easy!  And everyone likes easy, right?

My littlest had gotten ahold of my middle child’s dry erase workbook and had scribbled all over every page!  I don’t know when he did this, but it was long enough ago that it wouldn’t wipe off.  I even tried a wet paper towel and it made no difference.  Then I added 1 drop of lemon oil and it totally came clean with very little elbow grease of my own added!  I just wiped it down again with a clean paper towel and WHA-LAH!  Ready to be used again!

Then there was this foam sticker, stuck on the floor for ages.  (Well about mother’s day I think)  It was a foam heart sticker that somehow didn’t stick to my child’s project, but was practically glued onto my kitchen floor!  I just dropped a couple drops of lemon oil, let it sit for a minute and scrubbed it off!  All gone and I didn’t have to use any of those chemical cleaners!

DIY Carpet Refresher!

Stated simply…I have a dog and 3 small children, so this stuff is amazing in our happy little home!

It is a simple recipe for those who are just starting out or who want to do something quick and fulfill that DIY bug we all get from time to time.  🙂

Fill a mason jar ½ way with baking soda.  Add 8 drops of essential oil of your choice add lid and shake.  Open back up, fill the jar most of the rest of the way with baking soda and then 8 more drops of essential oil.  Shake again to distribute the oils.  Sprinkle all over carpet lightly, then vacuum.  It smells heavenly!

I change up what oils I use with whatever mood I’m in the day I make it…OR sometimes stinky, wet dog makes me change up which oils I add to freshen things up.

What would be your favorite oils to add to your happy home?

DIY Thieves Bathtub Scrub!

Ditch Toxic Cleaners fb cvr

I’m a little embarrassed that my bathtub was this bad, BUT, it gave me a great excuse to use this recipe! Take 1cup of baking soda, 5 drops lemon oil, 5 drops thieves oil, and 1 capful of thieves cleaner. Mix together. You can add a little bit of water or a little more cleaner if you need to. You want it to make a paste. Grab a scrub brush and spread it on. Let it set on the surface for 2-3 minutes, then scrub away! I was amazed how well this worked…no bleach or other harsh chemicals were needed! Plus I love the smell of Thieves Cleaner!  Results like this make me love the Young Living Lifestyle even more.

DIY Bedtime Spray

One of the BEST parts of using Young Living Essential Oils is making so many toxic free products myself to continue living a healthier lifestyle.  One of my children’s favorite ones is our Bedtime Spray.  It’s part of our bedtime routine and they take the bottle and spray it on their sheets and pillows themselves!  They love their sleepy time oils.

For my little 2oz. spray bottle I did 6-8 drops of Valor and 6-8 drops of Lavender essential oils. Then filled the rest with distilled water. The kids love this! But you don’t have to be a kid to use it.
