doTERRA has put together an essential oils blend that is perfect for cleansing and purifying – skin, air, counter tops… It’s a combination of Lemon Peel, Lime Peel, Siberian Fir Needle, Austrian Fir Needle, Pine Needle, Citronella Grass, Melaleuca Leaf, and Cilantro Herb essential oils.
How Our Family Uses Purify
We have five kids at home, all preteens and teens. We have our fair share of stinky shoes and mystery odors, for sure! Here are a few ways we use this blend around the house:
- LAUNDRY – I put one or two drops in almost every load when it goes into the washer. No need for toxic chemicals, and our laundry has never been fresher.
- SHOES – a drop in each shoe makes a world of difference! They don’t have to live on the porch now 🙂
- DIFFUSE – If a bedroom, kitchen or bathroom gets too smelly, I diffuse a few drops of Purify (often with Lemon or Wild Orange), and the offending odor is gone in no time.
- CAR – Cars can develop funk smells that never seem to go away, what with eating on the run and baking in the summer sun all day. A couple drops on a napkin in the drink holder does wonders!
Other Ideas for Using Purify
doTERRA’s Cleansing Blend isn’t just good for eliminating smells.
- Soothing insect bites and stings
- Add to your DIY deodorant
- Use with Melaleuca to assist with ear infections
- Repel Mice
- Stovetop Cleaner = Mix a few drops of this blend with baking soda, salt and apple cider vinegar. Make a paste (add water if necessary). Let sit on cooked-on gunk for a few minutes, then scrub and rinse.
- Mattress Spray – Combine with On Guard blends with water in a glass spray bottle. Shake and spray, then wipe.
- Garbage Can Spray – Combine with Lemon essential oil with water in a glass spray bottle, and spray in bottom of garbage can to eliminate ongoing odors.
- Bite & Sting Spray – Equal parts Purify, Peppermint, Melaleuca, Rosemary, Lavender, Lemongrass, and Helichrysm essential oils, combined with carrier oil in glass spray bottle. (Disclaimer: if your bite or sting is looking infected or like it’s from a dangerous insect, seek professional medical care. Obviously 🙂 )
