Hopefully you have already seen my blog Why you need to make the switch to tox-free living and you’re eager to start clearing harmful chemicals from your household. If you have, you are up to speed on how harmful some chemicals found in commercial cleaning products can be for your health. So, in following on from that information, I have complied my Top 5 DIY recipes that’ll help you make the switch. Other than putting your health first, these DIY recipes are super easy to make and very cost effective. You can purchase most of the ingredients at your local supermarket. So here goes;

 

Multi-Purpose Surface Spray

This spray is perfect for cleaning hard surfaces in the kitchen and bathroom.

Ingredients

  • ¼ cup of white vinegar
  • 1 ¾ cups of water
  • 15 drops doTERRA essential oil On Guard
  • 15 drops doTERRA essential oil Lemon

 

Instructions

  1. Add all ingredients to a glass or stainless-steel spray bottle
  2. Shake thoroughly

 

Dishwasher Tablets

This combination will leave your dishes clean and smelling fresh. Use in dishwasher in place of store-bought dishwashing tablets.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup baking soda
  • ¼ cup citric acid
  • 1 tablespoon doTERRA On Guard Cleaner Concentrate
  • 5 drops doTERRA essential oil Grapefruit

 

Instructions

  1. Put baking soda, citric acid, doTERRA On Guard Cleaner Concentrate and Grapefruit oil in a mixing bowl and mix until mixture is even consistency
  2. Place silicon moulds (I get mine for $1.50 from K Mart) and let sit for 4 hours
  3. Remove from moulds carefully
  4. Store in an airtight container

 

Tip: Adding 1 cup white vinegar to rinsing agent compartment in your dishwasher will help ensure your glassware comes out sparkling!

 

Toilet Cleaning Pods

This isn’t a favourite task for anyone, but these DIY pods make the job so much easier. They eliminate unpleasant odours and leave your toilet sparkling clean. To use, simply drop a pod in the toilet and wait until the pod stops bubbling and scrub away

Ingredients

  • 1 cup baking soda
  • 1/ cup citric acid
  • 1 ½ tablespoons unscented castile soap
  • 15 drops doTERRA Purify Cleansing Blend

 

Instructions

  1. Stir the baking soda and citric acid together until combined
  2. Slowly stir the castile soap and Purify Cleansing Blend until the mixture resembles wet sand
  3. Pack the pod mixture into a mould and let dry for 4 hours. If during this time the mix expands above the mould, firmly press back down
  4. Once dry, remove the pods from their mould and store in an airtight container

 

Soft Scrub Cleansing Paste

This is excellent for getting rid of soap scum, removing stains and brightening your tiles and basins. To use, just apply and let sit for 5-10 minutes and then scrub. Once done scrubbing, take a wet cloth and wipe clean.

Ingredients

  • ¾ rounded cup baking soda
  • ¼ cup unscented liquid castile soap
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • 1 tablespoon white vinegar
  • 10 drops doTERRA essential oil Lemon

 

Instructions

  1. In a bowl, combine baking soda and castile soap
  2. Add water and stir
  3. Add vinegar and Lemon oil and stir. The consistency should be of a soft paste
  4. Store in an airtight container

 

Foaming Hand Soap

This is one of my favourites. It’s so easy that my kids can make it with me. They love the sensory texture of the foam once made, which in turn promotes a lot of unprompted hand washing which is a plus. When using, simply pump one or two times into your hands and wash with warm water.

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons unscented liquid castile soap
  • 1 tablespoon Fractionated Coconut Oil
  • 5 Drops doTERRA essential oil On Guard (keeps the germs away!)
  • 5 drops doTERRA essential oil Lavender (Soothes the skin)
  • Water

 

Instructions

  1. Pour castile soap and Fractionated Coconut Oil into a doTERRA Foam Pump Bottle
  2. Add essential oils
  3. Slowly add water into bottle, making sure to leave room for the foaming pump
  4. Add lid, shake, and you are good to go!
