Lemon, Peppermint and Lavender. Three oils you definitely don’t want to be missing out on! I’m here to share a few of my favorite ways to use them…
From the time I was little, my grandma used chlorine bleach in her laundry and bathroom. I hated the smell and felt a little dizzy when I was around it.

Now that I have my own home, I’ve found a great replacement for bleach. It’s frugal and easy to make. It’s also non-toxic, which is important to me. I store it in a 20 oz spray bottle and use it on the tub and as a stain remover.

3 c water
1/2 c hydrogen peroxide (3% solution)
10 drops Lemon oil
1-2 capfuls of dōTERRA On Guard® Cleaner Concentrate or natural soap
1. Add all ingredients to a quart sized jar or container
2. Use 1 c of this solution as needed for laundry
3. For tougher stains, add another 1/2 c of hydrogen peroxide to this mixture
Peppermint is one of those oils that I have on hand at all times. It has so many uses and benefits.

Here are a few of my favorite ways to use Peppermint:

Add 1 – 2 drops to a glass of water or tea to aid digestion
Massage 1-2 drops onto your abdomen for upset stomach
Place 1 drop on your wrists and inhale frequently for a natural uplift
Inhale straight from the bottle to soothe motion sickness or general nausea
Rub 1-2 drops on forehead to relieve head tension
Put 1 -2 drops in a veggie cap. Digest to aid digestion
No matter how careful we are, little ones will probably get diaper rash.

I wish I  had learned how to make my own diaper balm to help protect my baby’s soft, sensitive, skin in between diaper changes.

I double or triple the recipe and share it with my mama friends because they love it so much!

*Bonus – This recipe can also substitute as a burn salve


4 tbsp extra-virgin coconut oil
1 1/2 tbsp beeswax pastilles
10 drops Lavender oil
Use a double boiler on low heat to melt the coconut oil and beeswax.
Remove from heat once melted and add Lavender oil.
Fill lip balm tins or a small glass jar. Let cool for a couple of hours to firm up. Makes a 3 oz container of homemade diaper balm.
Scoop out a dime-sized amount and smooth onto the diaper area after wiping to soothe sensitive skin and lock in moisture. Make sure to test on skin for skin sensitivity before use.
