Carpet Fresh The doTERRA Way

I just saw this the other day in a doTERRA video and it is so great it actually helps clean and freshen your carpet some say they even use it on their mattresses.  The recipe couldn’t be simpler.

Get a mason jar whatever size you think you might need. I have a lot of carpet so I use a quart canning jar. Then fill with baking soda,  then pick your favorite essential oil mine is ….yes of course Wild Orange. I like my strong so I put 30 drops in the jar with the baking soda and  shake it quite vigorously for several minutes so you know it is fully absorbed and not just in one big clump. That’s it! How simple was that. You can make this up in advance so that you always have it on hand.

Sprinkle it on your carpet I like to let it set for 10 or 15 minutes then vacuum and your whole room smells like Wild Orange or whatever your favorite oil is.

Life’s Essential Oils

Lets start off with my story and how I started using essential oils. After an injury to my knee I was going to physical therapy 2 times a week. I had asked my physical therapist what type of over the counter pain rub she thought was the best. The first words out of her mouth were doTerra’s Deep Blue, then she named a few other over the counter name brands. A light went off in my head, I knew my friend had started selling doTerra so naturally I contacted her to see if I could purchase some of this Deep Blue magic.

Not only did she get me some deep blue she also helped my husband who had a bad cough and suffered from cold endused asthma. So she mixed up some of the oils in some honey and viola! No more cough, this magic cough syrup also helped him with his asthma and now he hardly ever has to use his inhaler, he just takes a bit of the cough syrup when he starts having a hard time breathing. Now I am not claiming that his asthma was cured but it sure helped. Well needless to say I was hooked, I signed up immediately and that is my story in a nutshell.
