Cleaning your home with DoTerra essential oils

cleaning with doterra

Household cleaning with essential oils will clean your home beautifully leaving the taps sparkling without polluting your home with harmful toxins.

I have never liked the smell from household cleaners and have always been particularly wary of bleach based products. Many household cleaners contain very harm ingredients.

One of the first things I did when I received my first order of DoTerra was to make up a bottle of lemon and OnGuard to see if I could clean effectively using just oils and water.

The results were astonishing.
