So I want to post a few DIY (Do It Yourself) products that you can make at home, that work and are chemical free. I am almost finished my second online course, and it will have many more for you. I just want to share a few easy ones, so you can get your feet wet. It's not as expensive, or time consuming as people think and it really does make a difference. My son has allergies, and when I made the change? I noticed a huge difference in his allergies. Those chemicals harm us, and our children are more sensitive than we are to them. Seeing the improvement in him, was enough for me to throw out commercial cleaners and I never looked back. I want to share a few easy ones Air Freshener Commercial products have VOC and phthalates (discussed in prior posts and in detail in my online course). This is so simple and smells amazing, and you can choose your scent. ½ cup distilled water
20 drops lavender essential oil (or your preferred scent. You can use rose, chamomile. What ever scent you enjoy. I love lavender scent I use it for everything. It is my favorite)
1. Mix together in a spray bottle and shake thoroughly.
2. Spray around the room It really is that simple. If you don't have a double boiler or water distiller you can buy distilled water at the store. Antibacterial Surface Cleaner Commercial products have so many chemicals I can't even list them. You can have that clean smell without the chemicals. With this cleanser, always shake before use.
1 2/3 distiller or filtered water. Hot
1 tsp borax
1 tsp baking soda
2 tsp lemon juice
12 drops tea tree essential oil
5 drops lavender essential oil
1. Place all ingredients into a spray bottle. Shake well to mix.
2. Shake before using
3. Keeps for up to 2 months
These are only 2 that I wanted to share so you can try and get started. They are so easy and simple and I use these personally and know they do a good job. My course will have many more, so keep an eye out for that :) Until next time,
