Spring Cleaning With Essential Oils

spring clean

Well, spring is right around the corner. Time to think about Spring Cleaning! One of our favorite things to do! Right!! Well,  I have  always loved spring and the weather it brings; and as much as I dread it I do love the smell and look my house has with a good old fashioned spring cleaning. One of the many things I love about using doTERRA  essential oils is the ability to use natural products to clean my home. I am going to share a few tips and DIY items for your consideration over the next several days. Happy Cleaning!

Did you know that Americans spend over 5 billion dollars a year on cleaning products, with the average household spending close to $700 dollars a year on just cleaning supplies alone. According to this Web MD article¬†http://www.webmd.com/health-ehome-9/green-cleaning¬†‚ÄúThese products [antibacterials and harsh cleansers] don‚Äôt work any better than their natural or non-toxic counterparts, and they damage the environment and potentially place our long-term health at risk.‚ÄĚ

To make your household safer, get rid of the risk of household cleansers by making your own  at home. They are affordable, easy to make , eco-friendly, and just as effective (if not more) than store bought cleaners. Make sure to check back over the next few days for more ways to make your own cleaning supplies at home and get some tips for cleaning with oils.

Soft Scrub for Bath, Tile, and Toilet

Make this in small batches and store in an airtight container. This recipe  is enough for two to four applications. This soft scrub is excellent for getting rid of soap scum, removing stains, and brightening your tile and toilet. To use, just apply and let it sit for 5-10 minutes and then scrub. Once done scrubbing, take a wet cloth and wipe clean.

What you Need:

  • 3/4 rounded cup baking soda
  • 1/4 cup liquid castile soap ***
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • 1 tablespoon vinegar

***Liquid castile soap is a vegetable-based soap commonly found in health food stores and I get mine at Target. Dr. Bronner’s is a popular one. Look for unscented. This scrub is also great to use to help clean your kitchen sink, refrigerator, or tile floor .

I am going to end this day one of Spring Cleaning with a microwave cleaning tip. This will be your AFTER picture.

MIcrowave

STEAM CLEANING YOUR MICROWAVE

This microwave trick is noting short of amazing. You are not going to believe how well it works! Basically, it  simply steams up the microwave, loosens up the yuckiness and makes it extremely  easy to wipe down.  TRY IT!!  You will be amazed.  I simply can not stand a dirty microwave, so I do this often! I just like the smell it gives the kitchen too. So, here ya go.

  1. Fill a microwave safe bowl with water.
  2. Add 4 to 5 drops of Lemon Essential Oil (Or Citrus Bliss)
  3. Microwave for 5 or so minutes.
  4. Wipe your microwave down with a clean cloth

Not only is your microwave steam cleaned, it smells GREAT too.

Happy Oiling and let me know how these work for you.

But, I am here to tell you all about the benefits of Deep Blue! Deep Blue is a go to product here. My husband keeps this in his truck and in his golf bag. He swears by it!! However, I am going to issue a word of WARNING! Deep Blue eases discomfort of sore muscles and is amazing. However, it is like other blends you put on sore muscles and you need to wash your hands immediately after use prior to your hand touching any other part of your body. My husband, Jeff, decided to use some on his knee that was causing him great pain. BUT, he for some strange reason, decide to take a shower immediately after rubbing this on his knee. In just a few moments I heard sounds coming out of the shower that did not resemble human speech. I went running into the bathroom and he was moving and levitating in ways no 56 year old man should or can move. Turns out he DID NOT wash his hands first, had grabbed the soap and was soaping up all his “manly parts”. Now, I wish I could tell you I helped him, but I was far to busy laughing till I cried. After a few moments all was well, but, he will never do that again. He is a walking (or floating PSA) to never forget to wash your hands after using Deep Blue.

SO, in all seriousness, here is some information on Deep Blue

Deep Blue¬†is a proprietary blend ¬†that works together to provide instant relief for tired, sore ¬†muscles and joints.¬† The properties of the oils¬†bring cooling relief to areas of discomfort.¬† Just two or three drops of this amazing blend of oils ‚ÄĒ or a small dab of Deep Blue Lotion¬†is all you need to energize your daily work out or simply restore ease to your daily routine.

Recent studies indicate that more than half of us suffer from on-going discomfort, ON A DAILY BASIS.  But, mother nature has some of the most natural products that can safely and effectively use to soothe achy muscles and joints and they offer penetrating and sustained relief from this discomfort.

What Oils Are Used In Deep Blue?

Deep Blue Rub from doTERRA  db

Several powerfully soothing oils make up this  blend. These oils include:

Wintergeen
Camphor
Peppermint
Blue tansy (Tanacetum annuum)
Blue chamomile
Helichrysum and
Osmanthus.

Simply apply two to three drops of Deep Blue oil or lotion directly to areas of discomfort. Its cooling  benefit will be felt almost immediately.

With close to 5 mL of dŇćTERRA’s top-selling Deep Blue oil blend in each tube, it is an essential addition to your bathroom cabinet, gym bag or first aid kit. We have them in all of those places. I gave some to my parent’s and my aunt. I have some of the sample packets that I give out all the time. Everyone I have given these too all in love with this product.

Deep Blue Rub is blended in a base of moisturizing emollients that  will leave your skin feeling soft, not greasy and is the choice of many massage therapists and sports practitioners.

I suggest you get some of this for your home. You will not regret it. Just remember my husband’s Public Service Announcement ūüėČ Let me help you get this free during the month of March.

Happy Oiling,

What are essential oils?

I have copied this information from doTERRA to help explain what essential oils are.  http://www.doterra.com/sgen/essentialDefinition.php  There is more information on this site should you decide to go to this link telling about essential oils throughout history for example.

Essential oils are natural aromatic compounds found in the seeds, bark, stems, roots, flowers, and other parts of plants. They can be both beautifully and powerfully fragrant. If you have ever enjoyed the gift of a rose, a walk by a field of lavender, or the smell of fresh cut mint, you have experienced the aromatic qualities of essential oils. In addition to giving plants their distinctive smells, essential oils provide plants with protection against predators and disease and play a role in plant pollination.

Essential oils are non water-based phytochemicals made up of volatile aromatic compounds. Although they are fat soluble, they do not include fatty lipids or acids found in vegetable and animal oils. Essential oils are very clean, almost crisp, to the touch and are immediately absorbed by the skin. Pure, unadulterated essential oils are translucent and range in color from crystal clear to deep blue.

Try this at home: Squeeze the peel of a ripe orange. The fragrant residue on your hand is full of essential oils.

In addition to their intrinsic benefits to plants and being beautifully fragrant to people, essential oils have been used throughout history in many cultures for their medicinal and therapeutic benefits. Modern scientific study and trends toward more holistic approaches to wellness are driving a revival and new discovery of essential oil health applications.

dŇćTERRA CPTG Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade¬ģ essential oils represent the safest, purest, and most beneficial essential oils available today. They are gently and skillfully distilled from plants that have been patiently harvested at the perfect moment by experienced growers from around the world for ideal extract composition and efficacy. Experienced essential oil users will immediately recognize the superior quality standard for naturally safe, purely effective therapeutic-grade dŇćTERRA essential oils.

Why do I use essential oils? And other random stuff.

I am new to blogging and still a little unsure of what I am doing! However, I know I want to share what essential oil use has meant for me. I did a lot of reading and researching on essential oil uses prior to making my decision. My choice was to go with doTERRA. I can not say enough how much I value this company and the benefits they bring to my family. My medicine cabinet has been purged as well as cleaning products. I do it all with oils now. Over time, I plan to share natural solutions for your family’s well-being and natural cleaning products for your home.

I am about to be a Nanna again (YAY) and I am looking into diaper cream for babies, talc free powder and more. There is a diaper bag makeover I will share in the next few days too.

Essential Oils, by doTERRA, can be used three ways, aromatically, topically (typically with a carrier oil) or some can be used internally. I can’t wait to share different uses and how they have helped me.

The first oil I used was Serenity. My oldest grandson (Ethan) lives with us and we both can not sleep well. WOW is all I can say after using it the first night. The next morning we woke, up looked at each other and said the same thing, at the same time!! “I feel rested!” Ethan is becoming quite the expert on which oil to use for what concern he has! He is only 13 and is learning how to seek natural solutions for his health!!

I grew up in a small farming town and when we were sick my grandmother would go outside and bring in some bark, herbs or something else and make something for me to drink, rub on, etc. I always got better. I see this as getting back to basics.

Now, my husband, Jeff has not embraced this as quickly as Ethan and I have. He calls them my “witch oils”. But, on an almost daily basis now, he comes to me with a concern and asks if I have an oil for that and I always do. He keeps some roller balls and other oils in his truck and golf bag now. He still says he is not sure, but he can not argue with the results he is getting.

I hope as you join me you have patience as I learn to blog and share parts of my day with you. Some blogs will be about my family, my friends and our adventures, how I am eating gluten free (I have a severe gluten allergy) and life in general.

Let’s learn together and through this all I will share my growing knowledge and love of essential oils. You can contact me at eessentiallynanna@gmail.com ¬†I would love to help you learn to explore natural solutions for your family and for your home.

We are expecting snow and ice here in Georgia over the next two days. I don’t like the cold. I am in front of the fire, nervous about publishing this for the first time.

Talk more soon!
