Eco cleaning – How to clean your house with Essential Oils

Eco cleaning – How to clean your house with Essential Oils

A study done by the United States Environmental Protection Agency states that the air inside a house is from 200 to 500 percent more polluted than the air you breathe outside due to the chemicals used in the house  while cleaning.

Young children are more exposed to the contamination present in the air and this can interfere with their neurological, endocrine and immune system development.

Did you know that the main ways of exposure are:
-Ingestion (food and drink)
-Inhalation
– Dermatological absorption

How can we keep the house clean without harming family health?
Just always have these products with you:

 

BICARBONATE SODA: One of the most used in natural cleaning, eliminates odors, bleaches and is excellent for cleaning surfaces.

WHITE WINE VINEGAR: It has anti fungal and natural antibacterial properties. I use it as softener in the washing machine together with the lavender oil

 

 

CASTILLE SOAP: It is a natural soap that helps to eliminate dirt, de-grease and eliminate odors

FRACTIONATED COCONUT OIL (doTERRA) / OLIVE OIL: Rub on leather surfaces or to polish furniture

 

SALT: Dissolve the salt in hot water and pour into the kitchen sink to melt the grease from the pipes and eliminate odors.

ULTRASONIC DIFFUSER: replace air fresheners with a cold diffuser. Combine your favorite oils for a wonderful aroma.

The oil of Peace®-How to reassure your senses

The oil of  Peace®-How to reassure your senses

We all need PEACE in life, some more than others and many times we don’t know where to start.
Have you ever woken up with the anguish feeling of a new job about to start or an exam that is about to come?
That feeling that doesn’t let you  control your emotions as you would like and instead make you explode and lose control for no reason?
How about when your children,from the moment are back from school,have turned into a mysterious creature and for no reason start screaming, having tantrums and who knows’ what else?

This is why we all need doTERRA PEACE!

Since I had two children I realized that my emotions sometimes bounce like a ping pong ball, up and down without any balance. I go from moments of pure ecstasy and happiness to others of total sadness and anxiety.
Not to mention the hormones! Help!

As a mother I realized that not only adults have these moments but kids as well.  Fighting with her little brother or  sister, the daily activities, that moment of sudden exhaustion that makes him lose the plot …school….

Peace is an oil that we use constantly in the family. My daughter Giorgia loves it, she always has a bottle with her and she is constantly talking about it. In two words, she describes it as  “The oil that makes you feel happy when you are feeling upset”.

This mixture has been formulated for this. Peace is a mix of a different range of  soothing and comforting oils that in case of need ,are ready to reassure you and give you the security you need.

Let’s see what oils are in the blend:

VETIVER: has calming and balancing properties and is often used to help calming the nerves. It can also support with anxiety, stress, worry and promote restorative sleep

LAVENDER: is well known for its soothing and calming properties. It helps to promote health, love, peace and a general sense of well-being

YLANG YLANG: has anti-depressive and sedative properties. It is often used to  calm and relax

FRANKINCENSE: it is often used to promote that feeling of balance that we all seek, to support with concentration and meditation and to facilitate impatience and restlessness

CLARY SAGE: has sedative and calming properties and is often used for hormonal balance

MARJORAM: it is often used to help recover physical stress and helps promote peace and rest

LABDANUM: it was one of the first aromatic substances used in antiquity. It stimulates the senses and is often used to elevate mood and soothe the nerves

SPEARMINT: it is often used to overcome emotional blockages and to create a feeling of balance. Good support in case of depression because it relieves physical and mental tiredness, relieving the spirit.

 

How to use PEACE?

  • Applied on the heart or simply inhaled from the diffuser or the palms of the hands creates an immediate sense of well-being and tranquility.
  • Ideal for a reassuring sleep 1-2 drops in the diffuser  or under the soles of the feet
  • You can apply it under the sole of the feet diluted with fractionated coconut oil during child birth
  • Applied behind the neck and on the forehead when you are restless or confused
  • You can put a few drops in a hot bath or mix it in bath salts
  • If nervous before a big event or presentation apply Peace on the wrists, behind the neck and on the forearm, especially in the inner fold of the elbow

The Seven oils …

The Seven oils …

How many of us grew up with Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs?

I think pretty much all of us, more or less.
Who knows what it would have been like if the 7 dwarfs had used doTERRA oils?

Let’s be creative and try to find it out together …

Poor SLEEPY, did nothing but fall asleep here and there, so here we go, an all-natural remedy, a big sniff  of Peppermint and …he is awake… ready to face the day, with its invigorating and energizing properties is just what he needs.

And then comes HAPPY, always super joyful and peaceful, I’m sure that every morning he applies Balance under the soles of the feet to start the day grounded .

DOC, so wise …a little like On Guard, the oil that suits him best. He gets rid of any sickness in no time.

Ah DOPEY , that mischievous little boy, maybe with a little Vetiver under your feet you could calm down a little bit … what do you reckon?

If, like BASHFUL, you always blush and  not sure of yourself, just apply a little Bergamot on the solar plexus or simply inhale it from the bottle to feel invincible.

Beware of sneezing and a blocked nose! I really know that SNEEZY really needs Easy Air.

And how can we not love him, always grouchy and annoyed. We are all a bit GRUMPY even if we do not realize it, and Wild Orange is the perfect oil to give us the joy and the happiness of a child.

My Journey

My Journey

One day Giorgia, my then 4 yrs old daughter, came over crying as her knees were very itchy. It looked like ants or other bugs bite and they were quite swollen. Of course it was on a Friday night after 7pm and all the doctors were now closed and I did not have anything to apply

Untitled design(14)on her skin either. I just washed them with water and as soon as the itchy feeling was gone she fell asleep and woke up the next morning like nothing happened. Her glands were fine and she had no temperature and the knees where back to normal. The same thing happened at night  around 6:30pm, she started feeling itchy again but this time it wasn’t just the knees but both legs were covered of hives. The advise I got from the 24hrs doctor on call was to give her antihistamine but I did not like the idea of her being so young taking something that would not go to the origin of the problem but would only stop the itchiness. We managed to apply a natural cream that helped her a bit to fall asleep again. The next day, same story, she woke up happy as always and no signs of the hives until 6pm at night where she ended up with hives all over the body. What is going on!

My beautiful friend Dani offered to give me some essential oils to apply on her body to ease the hive and itchy feeling. I have used essential oils all my life as I like the smell of it but I had no idea that they could actually help your body to heal. Anyway the next day we started to apply a mix of lavender and frankincense,mixed with fractionated coconut oil. The result was amazing, we applied it every few hours during the day on the whole body, legs, arms, face and by night time she only had a very mild redness around her right cheek and that was it. I was amazed, I literally could not believe what I just experienced. Giorgia was happy and playing with the oils and loved to have them on her tiny body.

Lavender is an amazing essential oils to use on the skin especially for skin rashes and is a natural antihistamine, while Frankincense , being the King of Oils, is an enhancer and equalizer. The next day she went back to preschool and after warning her teacher about what happened I also give her a little mix to keep in case she would have a reaction during the day. They called me mid morning advising me that her right cheek was really red and swallowed so I told them to apply the mix and keep me posted. when I went to pick her up at 3pm the teacher came over super enthusiastic. She explained that after applying the mix on Giorgia’s cheek they kept monitoring her and they could see that within 20 minutes everything was back to normal! WOW!!! I was hooked, I must have had these oils, I had to learn more about it… so I did.

“I enrolled buying my first oils with the THE HOME ESSENTIAL KIT and I never looked back “

home essThe potency and the purity of this oils is something I have never experienced in my life. They don’t only smell good but they are actually an amazing support for your body and general health. We are now using the dōTERRA essential oils for everything we can think of and my kids and ourselves are never been healthier.
