Medical Disclaimer: Today we are chatting about essential oils. I use these oils in my home and today I'm sharing how we use them. Please be aware that I am not a doctor, a certified aromatherapist, and have no formal training in aromatherapy. Please always do your own research before using essential oils. This episode today is for entertainment purposes only. 
A couple of weeks ago, I did an episode on essential oils 101! If you've never used oils before and you want to dip your toes in, then this is a great class to start with. But since then, I've had people asking for more in depth tips on using essential oils. So tune in today.

How we use Essential Oils in our Home: 
The two main ways I use essential oils in my home are for cleaning and health and wellness. I first began using essential oils in my home to clean with because it seemed like the easiest way to get started. Plus, I was slowly figuring out how to swap out toxic cleaning items with more natural ones in my home anyway! 
To start off with: Dr. Axe is a fantastic resource for essential oils. Search essential oils on his website, or for specific concerns or oils and a ton of stuff comes up! In fact, he has an AMAZING book on essential oils that I've been drooling over for a long time. I like the fact that it is NOT brand specific! 
Essential Oils for Cleaning: 
My favorite oils for cleaning include Tea Tree, citrus oils (especially lemon), a deodorizing blend, and a germ fighting blend. Young Living has their very popular Thieves cleaning line which you can purchase pre-made cleaners with the Thieves essential oil! 
I just saw (from searching) that Plant Therapy has their own cleaning kit!! This would be a fantastic way to get started with cleaning oils. It includes: Tea Tree, Lavender, Lemon, Germ Fighter, Peppermint, and Citrus Blend. The only one I would add to this pack is the deodorizing blend for laundry!

Bathtub scrub: Mix one-half cup of baking soda, one-half cup of vinegar and five drops of bergamot or lime oil; use as a scrub for a sink or bathtub.

House fragrance: Diffuse clove, rosemary and orange essential oils when guests come over, and they will talk about how amazing your house smells.
Kitchen odor eliminator: Add a few drops of clove, cinnamon or citrus essential oil to a simmering pan of water to get rid of cooking odors.
Mold killer: Add tea tree oil to your diffuser to kill mold and other pathogens in the air.
Pest killer: Combine orange and clove oils and then spray to kill pests on contact.
Produce washer: To clean fruit and vegetables, add two drops of lemon oil to a large bowl of water, then wash.
Shower scum remover: Using a 16-ounce spray bottle, use four drops of eucalyptus essential oil and four drops of tea tree oil with warm water; spray onto your shower for natural mold-killing action.
Trash can freshener: Put a cotton ball with two drops each of lemon oil and tea tree oil at the bottom of the trashcan to hel...
