Chemical Free Home with Simple DIY Recipes!

Chemical Free Home Recipes! 

One reason why I love using essential oils and the company Young Living is that my home is chemical free and it was so simple! All of the essential oils I use in these recipes are the ones from the Young Living Premium Starter Kit and are so simple to make. I love that my family is safe from any harmful chemicals in any cleaning products we use, and this includes the health of our pets! Again, I am just so in love with having a chemical free home!

Homemade Carpet Freshener


Ingredients:

Glass Container (I used a small mason jar)
Baking Soda - 1 Tablespoon Baking Soda
Lemon Essential Oil - 8 drops

Directions:

I just put the tablespoon of baking soda into the glass container and add in the lemon essential oil.
I then stir it up with a fork. I then sprinkle the mixture on the carpet and let it soak in for about 5-10 minutes. Finally I just vacuum it up and the house smells like lemon! So awesome and easy!! 

Foaming Hand Soap


Ingredients

 A foaming hand soap dispenser.  (you can purchase one here)
Liquid Castile Soap (I used Dr. Bronners)
Vegetable Glycerine or Vitamin E oil
Young Living Essential Oils (Thieves Essential Oil)

Directions:

1.  Add 2-3 Tablespoons of Liquid Castile Soap to your soap dispenser.
2.  Add 1/2 tsp vegetable glycerine or a few drops of vitamin E oil.  This step is not necessary, but I believe you will find the soap drying without this ingredient.
3.  Add 5-6 drops of Thieves oil or any oil combo of your choice. 
4.  Slowly fill your container with water.  Be sure to leave enough room for the large pump
5.  Gently shake to combine all ingredients.

Homemade Lemon Kitchen Cleaner


Ingredients:

1 tsp baking soda
1 squirt of your favorite dish washing liquid 
1/2 cup distilled white vinegar
water
2-3 drops Lemon Essential Oil
Glass spray bottle (Amazon)

Directions:

Add the baking soda, dish washing liquid, & vinegar to the spray bottle. 
Without capping the bottle, give it a few swirls to mix.
Fill the bottle with lukewarm water.
 Add the 2-3 drops of lemon essential oil, and swirl it around a few more times to mix well.

**I would suggest mixing this in your sink. There is the possibility of a foamy "volcano" forming because of the reaction of the baking soda with the vinegar and soap. Never shake the bottle to mix to keep the chances of this happening down.


I hope you enjoyed 3 easy DIY recipes to keep your home chemical free!!

Note: I don’t recommend using any other essential oil brands. You will be inhaling the micro-particles of oil. The Young Living brand oils that we use are 100% pure therapeutic-grade oils that are held to the highest industry standards.
