The Best Changes I Made in my Life....

I started using aromatherapy about 8 years ago because I wanted to find a more natural way to deal with insomnia. Medication from the doctor made me so disoriented and I knew there had to be a better way. I was thrilled to find that a combination of essential oils worked miracles for me. I was able to relax and actually sleep.

After that experience, I decided to get more into aromatherapy for other aspects of my life. I was very concerned with the high levels of toxins in everyday items that are used in household cleaning and refreshing. So, I cleaned out my cupboards and rid myself of all the caustic, toxic cleaners I had and started using non-toxic aromatherapy household cleansers.

Simple recipes that use drops of tea-tree oil or lemon oil added to some water can be used to scrub floors or disinfect, or one can get more involved and create homemade dish washing liquid, window cleaner or air freshener. My house smells great (even with four dogs!), and I don't have to worry about kids or animals being poisoned by anything I have around.

Here are some great essential oils recipes for you:

Lemon-Lime Cleansing Powder (great to scrub tubs!)
10 drops Lime essential oil, 10 drops Lemon essential oil and 1/4 C. baking soda. Just mix together and use an a mild abrasive cleanser.

To clean floors,
Add a few drops of essential oil (lemon, rosemary, tea-tree or orange) to a bucket of warm water.

If ants are a problem,
Place a few drops of peppermint essential oil where ever they enter the house. They hate the scent and will stay away!

Lastly, my blend for insomnia:
10 drops roman chamomile essential oil, 5 drops clary sage essential oil, 5 drops bergamot essential oil. Blend them together in a small dark-colored glass bottle. Add a couple drops to a tissue and put inside your pillow.
