As a doTERRA Wellness Advocate, I have removed chemical cleaning supplies in my home and switched to natural cleaning solutions. Before I started using doTERRA essential oils, I was buying chemical based household cleaners at retail stores like Comet scrub, Clorox bleach spray, Soft Scrub cleaner, Windex glass cleaner, and mildew cleaners. What do all of these cleaners have in common? They are made with harmful bleach to kill bacteria. They also smell terrible during the cleaning process and make breathing difficult! For my health and safety, I no longer use these harsh cleaning supplies and have incorporated all natural cleaning solutions using doTERRA essential oils. They are simple to make and use in everyday cleaning needs. The best part about using essential oils for household cleaning is that they are safe around children and family pets.
