doterra essential oilsI have a 10 month old baby, and usually whenever I would do cleaning around the house I would make sure it was during nap time, because I didn’t want her breathing in the harmful chemicals that popular cleaners contain…I love DoTERRA because I can clean my house with peace of mind in knowing that we aren’t being exposed to chemicals. No need for the gloves and mask here!!

This is a simple DIY cleaning spray that’s perfect for kitchen countertops! Made with DoTERRA’S On Guard essential oil blend ( one of my personal all time favorite oils)

You will need a spray bottle, like this resize-71

 and Doterra’s CPTG On Guard essential oil c6a824de8730e35ed32cf8f30931f4fe

All you have to do is add 15-20 drops into the spray bottle and fill with water. Voila! Super easy, just make sure you shake it a bit before each use. You can find this oil plus many more On Guard products here http://www.mydoterra.com/meganrreaux

DIY Bug Spray

doterra-insect-repellent

 

Summer is here, and along with that comes those pesky mosquitos! I live in Southern Louisiana, so I know all too well about them! The problem with popular insect repellents is that they are full of harmful chemicals. Below is some info on this popular chemical additive that is in most insect repellent products.

DEET (also known as N,N-diethyl-meta-toluamide ) is an additive in many insect repellent products used to repel biting pests. Sounds great right? Prevents bites, so what’s the problem?

 

Well it’s not all that pretty. DEET has also proven to be harmful when consumed, inhaled, or used in excess. You better believe those toxins and pesticides in bug sprays are absorbed and eventually enter the bloodstream potentially creating awful side effects. Have you even read the warning labels on a can of bug spray? The EPA clearly states: “Do not apply to eyes and mouth, and apply sparingly around ears. When using sprays do not spray directly onto face; spray on hands first and then apply to face. After returning indoors, wash your child’s treated skin and clothes with soap and water or bathe.” And the Centers forDisease Control: “Do not allow young children to apply insect repellent to themselves; have an adult do it for them. Keep repellents out of reach of children.”  SCARY!

Here is an easy DIY recipe for all natural bug repellent, that works!!

What you will need : DoTERRA’s Terra Shield Essential Oil

Distilled Water

A Spray Bottle

Directions :  Add 15-30 drops (depending on the size spray bottle you use) to a spray bottle, and fill the rest up with Distilled water and spray away!!

You can find Terra Shield on my online DoTERRA store here                                             http://www.mydoterra.com/meganrreaux

Homemade-Lavender-Bath-Salts-Recipe  

I made these as favors for my baby shower! They were a hit, plus very easy to make.

WHAT YOU WILL NEED :

DoTERRA Lavender Oil ( you can find this at my online DoTERRA store here, http://www.mydoterra.com/meganrreaux )

Epsom Salt I used the big container of the Walgreens brand

A mason jar or any other container you would like to store them in

 

DIRECTIONS : mix one cup of Epsom Salt with 10-15 drops of Lavender ( it will give you about 2 uses) VOILA! That’s it! Of course, I used the whole container of Epsom Salts and about 20-25 drops of Lavender because I was making enough for about 20 people.

Now, go run a hot bath and enjoy!
