Cleaning with Essential oils

Lemon and Lime essential oils are powerful cleansing agents that purify the air and surfaces, and can be used as natural cleaners throughout the home. 

Wild Orange is another great citrus oil to cleanse and purify surfaces. Putting a few drops in your own all-purpose spray will not only add a great cleansing boost but a lovely aroma as well! 

Douglas Fir and Siberian Fir are also cleansing and purifying oils. These oils deodorize the air and leave a fresh, piney scent on surfaces.

Eucalyptus is refreshing and cleansing. Combine Eucalyptus, Lemon, and Peppermint with water and vinegar in a spray bottle and use it to wipe down surfaces in your kitchen or bathroom.

Tea Tree (Melaleuca) is well known for its purifying properties. Add a few drops of Tea Tree to a spray bottle with water and use on surfaces to protect against environmental threats. When diffused, Tea Tree will help purify and freshen the air. 

Purify Cleansing Blend is comprised of Lemon, Siberian Fir, Citronella, Lime, Tea Tree, and Cilantro. This blend is specially designed to dispel unpleasant odors and purify the air.

Peppermint is refreshing and rejuvenating. It repels bugs naturally and creates an invigorating atmosphere when diffused or used topically on surfaces.

doTERRA On Guard Protective Blend is made up of Wild Orange, Clove, Cinnamon, Eucalyptus, and Rosemary essential oils. It provides natural protection against environmental factors and overall cleaning capability. doTERRA On Guard can be diffused to clear the air or used topically on hard surfaces.
