Natural Home Makeover #4
Having a nice smelling house is always desirable... So we have those wax melts, all of those dozens of sprays and air fresheners, synthetic essential oils, candles and so on. Well I hate to break it to ya but you are practically releasing poisons into your home. You may not notice the harmful effects immediately, but signs will begin to show overtime.
But lucky for you there is a safe and natural alternative!
Smell Goods Makeover
Diffusing Essential Oils- So yes we love to diffuse essential oils to make our homes smell good. BUT did you know that there are many health benefits to diffusing essential oils in your home? So for example candles may bring you bad side effects such as respiratory problems, headaches or dizziness while essential oils bring you side BENEFITS such as a cleansing the air, happy mood, patience, relaxation, motivation and so on. Huge difference right? Also you can save so much money by ditching the candles and switching to diffusing essential oils.
-When I am talking about 'Essential Oils' I am speaking only for doTERRA Essential Oils. I only feel 100% comfortable diffusing doTERRA essential oils in my home because I know without a doubt in my mind that they are PURE. I diffuse these oils with confidence that they are improving my overall health.
To put it into perspective:
A small Yankee Candle costs $10+ and burns for 25 hours.
A drop of doTERRA Lavender costs 0.09 cents. Diffuse 5 drops for 6 hours for 0.45 cents
Diffusing Lavender for 25 hours would cost you $2.25
Simply Saving you at least $8 and most importantly your health!!
DIY Air Freshener Spray
Find a glass spray bottle, up cycle your empty doTERRA bottles or purchase one of doTERRA’s Misting Sprayers.
You can make whatever kind of spray you would like. Mix together whatever oils smell best to you.
Here are a few recipes to get you started:
5 drops Cassia, 5 drops Roman Chamomile, 3 drops Hawaiian Sandalwood
3 drops Geranium, 5 drops Wild Orange, 5 drops Lemon
4 drops Wintergreen, 4 drops Siberian Fir, 5 drops Lemon
The amount of drops are what I would use in doTERRA misting sprayer. If it is too strong use less drops, or if you are using a bigger bottle use more drops for the right desired smell.
