DIY Essential Oil Recipes

Automobile DIY

Window Cleaner

  • Add 4 ounces of vinegar to a glass spray bottle along with 3 drops of Lemon essential oil. When it comes time to use it, shake well and spray onto windows, allowing it to sit for a few minutes before wiping with a piece of dry newspaper for a streak-free shine.

 

Interior Protectant

  • Combine 1 cup olive oil and 5 drops Lemon in a glass spray bottle or bowl. Use a clean cloth to wipe a small amount of the mixture into your dashboard and any other plastic or vinyl surfaces. Wipe off excess with another cleaning rag.

 

Carpet and Upholstery Stain Remover

  • To form a paste, mix 1 part white vinegar, 2 parts baking soda, and 2-6 drops of Purify, Lemon, Lavender, Melalueca, or Wild Orange. Work the paste into any stain using a toothbrush. Allow the paste to dry and then vacuum the stain away. For a stubborn stain, this process may need to be done more than once.

 

Air Freshener

  • Trace out a pattern (we like the drop pattern) onto wool felt or cut a pattern freehand. Punch a hole at the top. Thread through it a piece of twine and tie it into a loop to hang from your rearview mirror. Put several drops of your favorite essential oil onto the wool for an all-natural air freshener.
