Dump The Chemcials
If you have small children in your home, you're probably no stranger to child
safety locks on your cabinet doors.
And the reason is simple… think of all the harmful, toxic, dangerous
chemicals hiding in plastic containers behind those doors. They're used to
clean toilets, scrub sinks, and dissolve that disgusting glob of gunk that's
been hiding behind the trash can for 3 weeks now.
But there's a better way.
Instead of stocking your home with unpronounceable toxic chemicals, you
can use NATURAL essential oils for cleaning!
With the power that cleaning chemicals wield, we of course want to protect
the precious little-ones in our lives from letting their curiosity lead them to a
dangerous – and potentially fatal – accident.
To be sure, you must always use essential oils with safety, according to the
label, and in the correct amounts.
You can use essential oils for household chores alongside other natural
products like bicarbonate of soda, Castile soap, and vinegar. Oils provide not
only an amazingly-fresh aroma, but also put the elbow-grease behind the
cleaning with their naturally derived, plant-based ingredients.
Some great oils for cleaning include Lemon, Lime, Tea Tree, Lavender, Pine,
Cinnamon, Eucalyptus, Thyme, Orange, Rosemary, Peppermint, and the
essential oil blends – Thieves® and Purification®.
All have cleansing properties and the bonus is that these oils have multiple
purposes, so you can use them in all sorts of ways to support your health and
