DIY Tub Scrub - a super simple, all natural recipe for an all purpose bathroom cleaner.
1. Find an airtight container to mix ingredients and store your Tub Scrub (I use a 500ml mason jar with lid)
2. Combine 1/2 cup baking soda with 1/3 cup pure Castile soap and 1 Tbsp of hydrogen peroxide. Blend until smooth.
3. Add 15 drops of Lemon essential oil, 5 drops Wild Orange and 15 drops of dōTERRA's On Guard blend. Blend until oils are combined with Tub Scrub.
4. Apply a small amount of Tub Scrub to cleaning rag, sponge etc and wipe away bathroom grime in a breeze! Rinse after with water.
Store sealed jar in a cool dark place.
Suitable for tubs, shower walls, toilets and sinks. Other essential oils that work well at busting germs and grime include Tea Tree, Lavender and Eucalyptus! Happy Cleaning ✨
Happy Saturday! Who has weird mould in their showers? 🙋🏻
We live in an older building and no matter how hard I try to clean our shower it never looks 100%. This week I'm going to focus on tips for the bathroom and first up is a DIY mould busting spray.
Find a glass spray bottle (the one pictured is 2oz) and full with a 2:1 ratio of water and white vinegar.
Add 20 drops of Tea Tree Oil (Melaleuca) and 15 drops of Lemon essential oil.
Shake well to combine and spray in affected areas containing mould.
Wait 30 minutes before scrubbing.
Full disclosure, this is a work in progress - I am trying this recipe for the first time today and will comment / adjust as I go. Please try it yourself and comment on how it works for you!!
Here we have it friends... My top 5 must have essential oils for cleaning purposes.
1. LEMON LEMON LEMON - I can't get enough of this oil, it is a STAPLE in our home and not only smells so fresh but it also has amazing cleaning power!
2. Tea Tree aka Melaleuca - antibacterial and anti-fungal.
3. On Guard - dōTERRA's proprietary blend of oils is a top selling disinfectant (and smells soooooooo good).
4. Eucalyptus - antibacterial and antiviral properties.
5. Lavender - the "Swiss army knife" of essential oils!

Sometimes in these purging moments I need a bit of a push in order to get started and this is where I turn to my essential oils. dōTERRA makes an amazing blend called Motivate that I dab on myself before diving into any tasks that I've been putting off. Plus, it smells amazing - peppermint, clementine, coriander, basil, yuzu, melissa, rosemary and vanilla! Yum! Dilute a few drops in your favourite carrier oil and massage on your temples and shoulders or diffuse throughout the house for an encouraging boost! ⠀
While cleaning and organizing, be sure to check in with yourself and ask if the objects around you truly bring you joy! If they do, hang on to them, if they don't, say your goodbyes and move on! ⠀
