Things I Have Stopped Buying At The Shops.
Literally. I’ve replaced all of these products with natural alternatives. It’s easier than you think my loves. I’m saving time having it delivered straight to my door. I’m ridding our home of the horrid chemical based products that we clean our little abode with and that we put onto our bodies and I’m saving my $’s getting some of these for free within doTERRA’s free oil program.
Here’s how and with what:
SHAMPOO and CONDITIONER // you can buy these as a combo. Only $39 within your Wholesale Membership. I have a set for me and my babes use both the shampoo and conditioner too. Safe for coloured hair.
MULTIPLE CLEANERS // Yep, this ON GUARD CONCENTRATE is fabulous and I have it on hand to use for pretty much everything when it comes to cleaning our little cottage – washing our dishes, cleaning our bathrooms and applying directly onto those stubborn household jobs. You also can’t go past the MULTIPURPOSE SPRAY and if you already have one of the Essential Collection Kits or Home Essentials Kits you will have the LEMON and ON GUARD blend in your stash.
Multi-Purpose Spray: in a 250ml glass spray bottle put 10 drops of LEMON and 10 drops of ON GUARD. Fill the rest up with purified water. Shake before each use. You can get the spray bottles from au.aromatools.com
TOOTHPASTE // doTERRA’s ON GUARD TOOTHPASTE. The kids and I all use the On Guard toothpaste. I also do a daily coconut pulling. It did take the kids a little while before they go use to the taste of the toothpaste. They had been become so use to the ‘sweet’ taste of the chemical based toothpaste but all prefer it now.
HAND FOAMING SOAP // this ON GUARD FOAMING HAND SOAP alternative makes it a no brainer. You could also use this alternative which we have on the go in our bathrooms and laundry.
Hand Foaming Soap:
You will need:
- Self foaming pump bottle available at au.aromatools.com
- 2 tablespoons of liquid castile soap www.newdirections.com.au
- 1 tablespoon of Fractionated Coconut Oil available at www.newdirections.com.au
- 10 drops of essential oil of your choice. At the moment we have PEPPERMINT and TEA TREE/MELALEUCA.
- Pour castile soap and Fractionated Coconut Oil into bottle
- Add your essential oils
- Slowly add water into bottle making sure to leave room for the foaming pump.
- Add lid, shake, and you are ready!
- When ready to use, just pump 1-2 times into hands and wash with warm water.
EVERYTHING OINTMENT // I don’t have the Correct X yet however it’s in my next monthly essential oil order. For wounds, scratches we use the WOUND SPRAY combo of LAVENDER, FRANK and TEA TREE. Here is the link on the how to create this go-to blend on my blog: https://www.jodieyork.com.au/2015/12/diy-wound-spray/
MUSCLE SORE RUB. The ICE BLUE RUB // William has a tube in his gym bag for his Rhee Taekwondo. I used it recently after I got a little too over confident when doing some yoga last week.
Alternative is 5 drops of the ICE BLUE/DEEP BLUE BLEND in a 10ml rollerball bottle filled with Fractionated Coconut Oil. Also very effective.
LAUNDRY DETERGENT // I have a bottle of this on stand by because I make up a Basic Liquid Formula combo of my own.
I combine 2 1/4 cups castile soap, 1/4 cup distilled vinegar, 1 tablespoon of glycerin, 3/4 cup water and 10-15 drops of an essential oil of my choice. At the moment it’s LEMON. The clothes and bedsheets smell amazing when hung out in the sun.
SKIN CARE – I use the VERAGE SKIN CARE RANGE. Divine! Great value for money too.
BODY CARE – the SPA RANGE is wonderful. The body wash is sublime. You come out of the shower smelling amazing. We have one bottle in each shower. The lip balm is scrumptious and effective. I don’t have the mud mask yet but the Body and Hand Lotion is wonderful and unscented so you can add your own essential oils to it.
You can get all of the essential oils I mentioned through your very own doTERRA website 25% off retail prices when you create your Wholesale Membership with me here. Simply to the JOIN AND SAVE and begin your natural health care journey.
