All Purpose Cleaning Spray

Whoa Mama! You should see my windows, we get some crazy wind out here that coats my windows with a nice layer of dirt.  Then, there is my dog that likes to gunk up the window in my door while she is waiting to come in and out. 

I feel like I'm constantly wiping the windows down (along with counters, floors, mirrors...ugh!)  Did you know that there are ingredients that are harmful to the environment as well as your health in a lot of the cleaners you purchase at the store? Yup there are. And you are using them all over your house! Don't worry, you can make your own toxic free cleaners and save a lot of money while doing so. 

In this little bottle is like the superhero of cleaning. I use it for almost everything!

 It really should be pictured like this:
The "G" stands for GREAT! 

The very best part about the recipe is that it is so amazingly simple. 

1 part vinegar
1 part water
10-15 drops of lemon essential oil

Just make sure you give it a good shake before you use it to mix the oil in. I use this mix to wipe down my counters, mirrors, windows, table, walls, and even in the car! 

 Lemon essential oil is: antiseptic, antifungal, antiviral, and its refreshing!

I recommend purchasing doTERRA essential oils because they are the purest, and most potent essential oils out there. Other companies will claim they are the best, but doTERRA is the only company that does the testing to prove it. You can purchase doTERRA essential oils here

If you are interested in learning more about essential oils, look for my upcoming essential oil webinars, or feel free to email me your phone number, I would love to chat with you about oils.  backyardfarmingblog@gmail.com

I work for doTERRA, educating others about essential oils and how to use them. I'm looking for others to be on my team who would like to teach classes in their area. I love working for them, and it is financially rewarding as well. Feel free to email me if you would like to learn more about it! backyardfarmingblog@gmail.com

Where is the best place to find essential oils? Because other than blogs, I've never see or heard of it.

Thanks for the post!

Great question LindaG! I recommend doTERRA essential oils, because they are the most potent and the most pure essential oils out there. There are very few regulations on essential oils, so if you purchase them from the health food, they could look great, but still contain fillers, and even contaminants like Round Up! Doterra does a double testing on EVERY batch of essential oils to make sure they are pure and potent. Here is a link to purchase them: http://www.mydoterra.com/backyardfarming/


White vinegar - right?
