How to Start Cleaning with Essential Oils


| 8/24/2017 5:43:00 PM


When my daughter was born, I made the decision to switch to a more natural life style. Starting out, sounded like an expensive and lengthy process. Overwhelmed by the amount of work this required, I turned to bloggers and websites like Mother Earth Living. I spent hours researching the best options. I made trips to the natural stores. Read every label (this drove my husband crazy!).  Here is a tiny sliver of what I discovered.

1. Smalls steps are easy on your pockets and on your anxiety levels.

When you first start out, you feel like everything you own is going to hurt you and your family. Take it easy, one day you will look back and the small steps you took, may have flipped everything to the lifestyle you wanted.

2. Start with stuff you didn’t even know you already have.

• White Vinegar
• Baking Soda
• Lemons

These three items go a long way. You can use them in your laundry, kitchen and bathroom! The best part about them is that they are VERY affordable. Even if you don’t have them now, you’ll spend $10 at the most. My clothes look amazing since I started using white vinegar. The washing machine benefits from the white vinegar as well, the inside is clean and doesn’t have any odor.

3. Incorporate Essential Oils

I know, essential oils can be expensive, and not knowing what they are for is overwhelming. That’s why I said, small steps. No need to go crazy and order the most expensive kit out there, just because you want to use essential oils. Maybe you will work yourself up to that point. It took me two years to make an actual investment. You have time, you can do this. So, where to start you ask? I’ll tell you!
