Simple ways to use essential oils to create a toxin free home
I’m proud of the progress my family have made in making our home toxin and chemical free. What started as a single decision to use essential oils to support my son’s health, has led to our household completely transforming and I’ll never look back!
Creating a toxin free home is a wonderful way to provide natural support for your family and the best thing is, it doesn’t have to be complicated. You can transform your house into a toxin free living space by using essential oils.
Here’s some of my favourite ways to do so:
Switch chemical filled cleaning products for natural solutions
The cleaning products found in most homes are filled with unwanted toxins and chemicals. Keeping your home clean and toxin free starts with a natural cleaning spray made with essential oils – perfect to use on benches, bathrooms, tiles and more.
Create your own cleaning spray:
- 500ml Glass Spray bottle with water
- 1/4 cup white vinegar
- 20 drops of essential oil – I recommend Lemon or Wild Orange
Diffuse essential oils to purify the air
One of the simplest way to create a safe and natural environment in your home is by diffusing essential oils. My favourites are EasyAir to promote easeful breathing and Purify to eradicate odours and keep toxins at bay.
Switch toxic perfumes for natural essential oil fragrances
Many fragrances and store bought perfumes are loaded with chemical nasties linked to many diseases and hormonal disruption. The beauty of doTERRA essential oils, is that they are 100% pure and are not processed with solvents, nor do they contain fillers, pesticides, synthetics or any other toxins that we shouldn’t be putting on our skin or bringing into our homes.
There are so many wonderful fragrances to choose from with doTERRA essential oils, but I love Whisper as it’s already blended with with some of my absolute favourites including Ylang Ylang, Jasmine and Cinnamon.
Swap everyday toiletries for natural beauty products
Opening up your bathroom cupboard or looking at the products in your shower, can result in many confusing ingredients and unwanted toxins! What you put on your hair and skin is mostly absorbed into your bloodstream, which may contribute to disease and inflammation.
Using essential oils can help you swap everyday common beauty items for natural alternatives that support you to be your healthiest and best you!
Try this simple deep hair conditioner recipe:
- 3 tablespoons coconut oil
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 8 drops doTERRA essential oils (I love to use Lavender or Peppermint)
Combine all the ingredients together and apply to dry hair, leaving for about 15 minutes before rinsing out.
With your essential oils in hand, and some creative time aside, you can make your own deodorants, skin cleansers, sugar scrubs and many other beautifully natural beauty products.
