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.
