DIY Recipe of the Week {Chemical Free Home}

What's in your cabinets?   

Why am I passionate about getting the yuck out of my home?  Because I don't want to be in constant pain because my Endo is flaring up.  I know, it's pretty selfish, but it's the catalyst for change in my home.  For me, essential oils are another rug on my Healthy Living Ladder.  It's something that I'm choosing to do to help my family.

Did you know that 26 seconds after exposure that chemicals are found in measurable amounts in the human body?    

Did you know that the National Institute of Occupational Safety and Health studied 2,983 ingredients in our products at home—and found 884 toxic ingredients? 

DIY Glass & Mirror Cleaner

  • 1 cap full of Thieves® Household Cleaner 
  • 5 drops of Citrus Fresh™ Essential Oil Blend
  • 1 teaspoon of white vinegar
  • 3 cups of water

I added the cap full of Thieves® Household Cleaner to a spray bottle.  Then I used a quart size mason jar and added the 3 cups of water, 1 teaspoon of white vinegar and 5 drops of Citrus Fresh™ to it.

Remember, oil and water DO NOT MIX.  I put the lid on the mason jar ans shook it to incorporate the oil into the mixture.  I then poured the contents of the mason jar into the spray bottle that already had the Thieves® Household Cleaner in it.  I secured the spray nozzle on top and shook that a little to mix all of the liquids together.


Now I'm able to clean my mirrors and windows without the use of dangerous or synthetic ingredients.
