When I think about the one area that I am constantly cleaning, it’s my kitchen counters. Since my kitchen spray is something I come in contact with everyday, it made sense to try a DIY all purpose cleaner as a natural alternative. At first I started buying Mrs. Meyer’s Kitchen Spray. I don’t mind it, but it still contains synthetics and I can’t guarantee the purity and potency of the essential oils that are in it.
How many times have you been standing there talking with someone and have been super paranoid about your coffee breath. AHH, this does happen to me because I have a slight obsession with coffee!
A lot of times we reach for chewing gum or breath mints, but do you know what is in those? SUGAR! The bulk of all breath mints are comprised of some form of sugar or sugar substitute. Then they use something called a ‘binder’ to hold it all together. A binder can be anything from gelatin (which is extracted from the skin, bones, and connective tissues of animals such as domesticated cattle, chicken, pigs, and fish) to corn syrup.
I originally started making my own sea salt spray after I went to the store to buy a ready made sea salt spray and found out it costs $30!
$30 for something that has 10 ingredients in it, half of which I can’t pronounce?
No thanks – especially when the ocean is 5 minutes from my doorstep.
I was looking at my growing collection of essential oils and was thinking of different ways I can use them. Considering all of those air fresheners on the market are full of chemicals, I decided it was time to try and make my own Natural DIY Air Freshener.
It was honestly so simple and I just used an old steel air freshener container that I had around the house.
Perfume mixing, like music is made from notes. When used in harmony, these notes complement and accent each other to create an enjoyable aroma.
So when coming up with my DIY Home Spray, I carefully thought out which ‘notes’ would compliment each other.
There are 3 ‘Notes’ that you’ll often hear about when researching the art of perfume mixing.
