Updated: Dec 17, 2021

Cleaning with Essential oils

When I began my journey into finding a more natural way for my home and family I thought it would be mostly be for replacing OTC and pain relief products.  I didn’t realize I would be replacing almost all of our cleaning products as well.    There truly are natural solutions for everything in our homes.  Everything smells so beautiful and no harsh chemical smells.   Here are some pods and refreshers to try.

Natural Toilet-Cleaning Pods

Forget the toxic chemicals of traditional cleansers and try these do-it-yourself Natural Toilet-Cleaning Pods using Purify Cleansing Blend. Purify’s refreshing and herbal aroma will quickly replace unpleasant odors with a clean scent while eliminating tough odors in a natural, safe way.

Ingredients:

1 cup baking soda

¼ cup citric acid

1½ tablespoon unscented castile soap

15 drops Purify Cleansing Blend

Instructions:

Stir the baking soda and citric acid together until combined. Slowly stir in the castile soap and Purify. Stir until the mixture resembles wet sand. Pack the pod mixture into a mold and let dry at least four hours. If the mixture expands above the mold, firmly press back down. Once dry, remove the pods from the mold and store in an airtight container. To use, simply drop one into the toilet, wait until the pod stops bubbling, and scrub away!

Tangerine and Spearmint Garbage Disposal Refreshers

Don’t live with stinky garbage disposals any more. These Tangerine and Spearmint Garbage Disposal Refreshers clean and deodorize your garbage disposal in one easy use. Try it and love it!


Ingredients:

2 cups baking soda 1 cup salt 1/2 cup water 1/4 cup liquid castile soap (any scent) 15 drops Tangerine 15 drops Spearmint

Directions:

1. Combine baking soda and salt into bowl.

2. Add castile soap and essential oil into mixture.

3. Add water 1 tablespoon at a time while stirring with hands until it forms into the consistency of “damp sand”. It should stay together when you press it together. If you add too much water just add some more baking soda and salt until the consistency is right.

4. Pack mixture tightly into a small silicone mold. If you don’t have a silicone mold, just grab a tablespoon measurement device and scoop packed spoonfuls onto parchment paper.

5. Let mixture dry for 24 hours or until hard.

6. Put into glass jar and use the next time you do dishes! Just place 1-2 refreshers into the garbage disposal and turn it on. You will immediately smell the refreshing and cleansing aroma.

DIY: Fridge Refreshers

With all the different food items, it’s only natural to have a smelly fridge, right? Well, not anymore! These easy to make fridge refreshers are a simple way to deodorize your refrigerator without the use of toxic cleaners. Just place one refresher in your fridge each month for a fresh and clean scent every time you open up your fridge. Now, there is no excuse for having a smelly fridge!

Ingredients: 2.5 cups baking soda 1/2 – 1 cup water 15 drops Purify essential oil Silicone mold

Directions: Combine baking soda, 1/2 cup water, and essential oils into bowl. Stir together. If needed, add more water until thick paste forms. The mixture should resemble damp sand. Divide mixture equally into silicone mold. Allow it to rest 2-3 days or until mixture hardens. Once hard, place in refrigerator to help eliminate unpleasant odors. Store additional fridge refreshers in an airtight container until ready to use. One disk will last up to a month in your fridge. Tip: Place under sink, in the shoe closet, or behind the toilet for additional freshness

1 cup salt

1/2 cup water
