living, healing, and vibrating with doTerra essential oils
Ant Spray: 1/4 cup water + 15 drops Peppermint + 3 drops Clove (or 5-10 drops of a citrus oil). Shake before use, spray baseboards and anywhere ants are getting in.
Toilet Bowl Cleaner: ½ cup of baking soda + 10 drops Melaleuca (tea tree oil) + ¼ cup of white vinegar. Place all ingredients directly into the bowl. Scrub as the vinegar and baking soda react. Sparkle!
Wood Polish and Duster:1 cup of olive oil + 1 cup of white distilled vinegar + 15 drops of Arborvitae. Combine in a glass spray bottle. Dust AND polish at once! Enjoy the woodsy smell-- ahhhh
Tub & Tile Spray: 1 cup white vinegar + 4 teaspoons castile soap + 10 drops each of Melaleuca (tea tree oil) and Eucalyptus. Combine ingredients in a glass spray bottle. Shake well, and spray generously on tub and tile. Allow to sit for 5–10 minutes and wipe clean.
Soft Scrub Cleanser: ¾ rounded cup baking soda + ¼ cup unscented liquid castile soap-- combine. Add 1 Tbsp water & stir. Add 1 Tbsp vinegar + 5-10 drops of Lemon essential oil --stir & create a soft paste. Make in small batches (this recipe is enough for 2-4 applications), store in an airtight container. To use, apply and let it sit for 5-10 minutes. Scrub, then take a wet cloth and wipe clean.
I also like to add Rosemary essential oil to this. You can experiment with different oils.
