Hard Surface Floor Cleaner
(replaces clorox and other harsh chemical cleaners)
Sweep or dry mop first.

To clean floor:
Fill a bucket with 1 gallon cold water. Add 1-2 capfuls of Thieves Household Cleaner and 5 drops total of Lemon, Orange or Purification essential oil. Add ½ – 1 tsp of Young Living Bath and Shower Gel Base (or other natural soap).

Add for gummy greasy substances:
Add ¼ cup of white vinegar to the above mixture. Don’t use vinegar every time you mop a wood floor because it will be too harsh.

Saturate a disposable cloth or tissue with several drops of essential oil and place it into the bag of your vacuum to diffuse an uplifting odor as you clean. If your vacuum collects dirt into water, simply add a few drops into the water reservoir before cleaning.

Painting a Room
(neutralize toxic fumes and increase the frequency of your room)

When painting, add a 15 ml. bottle of your favorite essential oil, such as Joy, Citrus Fresh, Frankincense, Peace & Calming, White Angelica, Abundance or Sacred Mountain, to 1 gallon of paint.

Mix well.

The oil will counteract the unpleasant smell of the paint. Because essential oils are not fatty oils, they will not leave oil spots on the walls. The frequency of the essential oils will increase the energy of the room and have a positive effect on the people in the room.
