Essential Oil Swaps

Have you swapped out some of your toxic chemicals for essential oils? It’s pretty easy and becomes intuitive once you start! The research has shown that exposure to toxic chemicals that are found in most store bought cleaners and everyday products for our body and skin have a direct link to some pretty scary health issues.  I have made the switch to natural ingredients like baking soda, vinegar and essential oils for cleaning and swapped out over the counter remedies for natural and non-toxic ones.

Here is my list of swaps:
🌱 shower door cleaner β€” eucalyptus and melaleuca
🌱 toilet and sink scrub β€” baking soda, on guard cleaning concentrate, , vinegar, lemon EO
🌱 floor cleaner β€” vinegar, peppermint and lemon EO
🌱 wood polish β€” olive oil, water, arborvitae and wild orange EO, or lemon EO
🌱 glass cleaner β€” vinegar and lemon EO
🌱 goof off β€” lemon EO
🌱 facial toner β€” witch hazel, water, melaleuca, lavender, geranium
🌱 anti-aging serum β€” rose wood oil, frankincense, geranium, myrrh, rose, jasmine and neroli EO
🌱 dry shampoo β€” arrow root powder, dried cinnamon (bc I am a redhead), rosemary and melaleuca EO
🌱 between washing hair spritzer β€” water, rosemary, geranium, melaleuca, lavender and clary sage EO
🌱 bath bombs β€” baking soda, citric acid, Epsom and EO
🌱 pepto pink stuff β€” peppermint and ginger EO
🌱 seasonal issues β€” lemon, lavender and peppermint (combined a natural antihistamine combo)
🌱 body butter/lotion β€” shea butter, coconut oil, EO
🌱 carpet freshener β€” baking soda and lemon EO
🌱 ant and insect killer β€” peppermint
🌱 make up remover β€” lavender and witch hazel

And my list goes on and on and on. A fraction of the cost, and no chemicals in, on or around my body.
