Hey Moms! Did you know that your children, their rooms and clothes can all smell great with dōTERRA Essential Oils?
Let’s start at the bottom (pun intended) ♥
A natural baby wipe base* can be made using:
2 Tbs Castile Soap
2 cups of water
8 drops of vitamin E oil
1 roll of paper towel
10 drops of Lavender Essential Oil and 5 drops of Melaleuca Essential Oil
Cut the paper towel in half with a serrated knife, remove the cardboard from the center and place each one in a round storage container with a lid. Pour half of the liquid above over each half and let the paper towels soak it up. To use pull the wipes from the center of the roll. Use within 1-2 weeks.
Use the same recipe for Facial Cleansing Wipes! Just add 5 drops Lemon Essential Oil along with the Lavender and Melaleuca Oils
If you would like disinfecting wipes, replace the oils listed above with 4 drops Lemon oil, 4 drops Cinnamon Oil, 4 drops Cinnamon Oil and 3 drops of Rosemary Oil.
Are your children’s rooms smelling a little off? Try Kids Room Spray!
Simply place ½ cup water, add some Essential Oils and pour into a misting bottle.
For sweet dreams* add 8 drops of Lavender, 4 drops Orange, 2 drops Chamomile and 1 drop Sandalwood
For clear focus* use 7 drops White Fir, 5 drops Rosemary and 3 drops Bergamot.
Or for a calm car trip* mix 10 drops Ginger and 5 drops Peppermint
Any of these mixtures can be diffused as well!
Are their or your clothes sticky or stained with sap or oil? Try using a few drops of Lemon Essential Oil for removal. (Make sure you test it on an inconspicuous place first to make sure it doesn’t damage the cloth or dye.)
Non-toxic Bug Repellant
Mosquitos don’t like Peppermint, Lavender, Patchouli, Lemon, Basil, Clove, Geranium, Thyme or Lemongrass Oils.
Ticks avoid Thyme, Oregano, Juniper, Rosewood, and Grapefruit Oil.
Fleas don’t like Melaleuca, Cedarwood, Orange, Eucalyptus, Lemongrass, Lavender, and Pine Oils.
You can turn any of these oils into a spray with water or apply to the skin diluted with a little coconut oil.
