Green Clean Week – 7 days to low-tox your home

Green Cleaning Week

Low-tox your home with doTERRA Essential Oils

Overhauling my cleaning products was the very first change I made in my low-tox journey. As a new mum I struggled to fit cleaning into my schedule and often found I had to do so many things away from my newborn. 

I wouldn’t use the shower descaler around her, or use bleach. I wasn’t comfortable cleaning the oven or using spray & wipe on her high chair when I knew she would often eat right off it. That set of the alarm bells for me! If I didn’t want my daughter eating food that may have spray & wipe on it or breathing in the fumes from the bleach or de-scaler, then why was I using them at all? 

To a sleep deprived new mum, the thought of overhauling my entire cleaning cabinet felt a bit daunting AND expensive!! 

However, I’m so grateful I questioned it, as it has led me down this path of finding natural & effective cleaning solutions!Thank you doTERRA Essential Oils!  There’s also the added bonus that is has not only been EXTREMELY simple, but also much much cheaper! 

So – if you have been wanting to simplify & low-tox your cleaning products, then join me and our Almost Hippy Oily Community for a week of GREEN CLEANING in our members only VIP Facebook Group!

LAVENDER ESSENTIAL OIL

Known as the Swiss Army Knife of oils due to its versatility – Lavender is my go to bottle for all things C A L M I N G  &  S O O T H I N G. 

Think skin + sleep + emotions. 

Try out some of my favourite uses below.

+ 1-2 drops of lavender on your pillow or in your difuser before bed for a more restful sleep

+ 1 drop in a tsp of carrier oil & aid relaxation with massage into your little ones feet before bed

+ Add 1-2 drops mixed with a tsp of carrier oil to your bath for a perfect wind down after a stressful day

LEMON ESSENTIAL OIL

Lemon oil or S U N S H I N E in a bottle as I like to call it, is my first choice for all things CLEANSING & UPLIFTING 

+ Add 1-2 drops to your difuser first thing in the morning to help promote increased focus & lift your mood

+ Sticky labels are no match for lemon oil! Perfect for removing from glass jars so you can re-purpose, or any misplaced artistic sticker displays from the little ones!

+ And also budding artists who may choose to create misplaced masterpieces all over the walls. 1-2 drops of lemon oil with a little bit of elbow grease and VOILA!

+ A powerful deodoriser. Create a low-tox carpet shake & vac with 3-4 drops in a cup of baking soda. Sprinkle over carpet and then vacuum

+ With amazing cleansing & disinfectant properties. DIY all-purpose surface spray with 3-4 drops in a spray bottle with water. Simply shake, spray, and wipe. Smells great and super effective too!

+ Wonderful for anxious feelings, simply diffuse a few drops with peppermint to promote a more stable & uplifting mood.

PEPPERMINT ESSENTIAL OIL

Ultimate mumma must have! My favourite mid afternoon P I C K me up!

+ Need an energy boost before the gym? A drop in your palms, rub together and cup over your nose (NOT eyes! Peppermint will sting!) A natural pre-workout boost.

+ For head and neck tension, 5 drops in a 10ml roller topped up with carrier oil. Apply to your temples & back of neck

+ Add 5-10 drops to a spray bottle with water & spritz yourself during the warm summer days. Keep in the fridge for an extra cooling hit!

+ Pair with any citrus oil and add to the difuser to help you focus

+ Food additive with a punch! Add amazing minty flavour to bliss balls, brownies, hot chocolate… the list goes on

Tummy discomforttry rubbing 1 drop peppermint + 1 drop lavender oil with a carrier oil* onto the tummy area to help ease the discomfort. Great when travelling, on roller-coasters, or when you’ve eaten just a bit too much!

It’s time to get out of your own fucking way

Lessons from Nepal

IT'S TIME TO GET OUT OF YOUR OWN F#&CKING WAY

There are certain times in our lives when we experience something so profound that we know we will never be the same again. Since joining doTERRA I have had a few of these moments, but nothing has ever compared to my recent trip to Nepal.

I always KNEW I was making one of the best decisions of my life when I decided to go “ALL IN” with doTERRA and take on the privilege of doing it as a business, but a lot of this was on faith. I KNEW that these oils were having such a positive affect on my family. I was seeing it before my very own (sceptic) eyes everyday. I KNEW that people needed these oils but I also knew I was holding back. When I ever faced negativity I just walked away. I couldn’t be bothered “convincing” someone that they needed these oils, even though I TRULY believe that every home needs them.

But I felt like Nepal just bought everything into laser focus for me. I felt like Biggie says “if you dont know, now you know”.

To see and use and love these oils from the comfort of my own home was one thing. To read about the amazing initiatives our company has is both amazing and inspiring. But the BE THERE! Omg to BE THERE is a whole different story. To see a grown man break down and cry to you in gratitude for all that you do for his country just by sharing and using these oils. Talk about humbling. Talk about life changing. Talk about GETTING OUT OF MY OWN FUCKING WAY. How dare I not share these oils with EVERYONE. How dare I take the gratitude this man is showering on me and let my ego get in the way. Who am I to do that?

Nepal was an amazing experience and if you ever get the chance to go on a doTERRA Co-Impact Sourcing trip then you MUST. Today’s world can really get me down sometimes. The ENORMITY of the mess we have created can feel just too much and often leave me wondering if I can ever make a difference.

Nepal has shown me just how much of a difference I can and I AM making.

I actually started this blog post with no real idea what I was going to write lol. This will be the first of many posts about Nepal but it seems I needed to share these musings with you NOW! If you are using doTERRA oils, sharing the oils with friends or partnering with doTERRA to build a business then I want to pass on the thank yous, all the way from Nepal!

Namaste xx
