Sacred Self-Care :: Home Edition!

If you're like me, then you are typically working from home and view your home as a sacred space. You probably also care about doing the best thing possible for your health, others' health, + the health of the planet. 

So many women today are faced with reproductive and health challenges, and we definitely don't need to exacerbate issues or create them by using harsh chemicals in our homes, on our bodies, or in our lives in general. 

I've always LOVED using natural remedies, exploring holistic health, + even graduated college with a minor in Sustainable Food Systems because I'm endlessly excited about healing our food system + nutrition that allows us to better carry out our beautiful work in the world.

I believe that when a woman embraces + expresses her innate feminine wisdom, it impacts HER future, OUR future as women, and THE future of the world. 

And when it comes to us as women specifically, when we reconnect to our roots as medicine women, and healers of ourselves, others, + the planet, we begin to recognize a very important aspect of our own power that then increases our impact in every area of our lives. 

I am also passionate (to an annoying extent, I'm sure, for anyone who's ever lived with me) about keeping my home and my environment as safe, clean, and natural as possible. 

I recently found two amazing recipes for green cleaning around my home that has everything infused with aromatherapy, offers an all natural solution to products that are endocrine disruptors + often laced with harsh chemicals, are super low cost, and totally easy to DIY when I run out of something because it's made with common household items. 


All-Purpose Cleaning Spray

2 cups of water

1/2 cup white vinegar

1 tsp Dr. Bronner's Peppermint Castile Soap

3/4 cup hydrogen peroxide

20 drops doTERRA tea tree oil

20 drops doTERRA lavender oil

 

directions

Mix all ingredients together and add to a spray bottle *simply reuse one that you have in your home already OR purchase a glass amber spray bottle here


Simple + Natural Liquid Laundry Detergent 

1/2 cup Dr. Bronner's Peppermint Castile Soap

1/2 cup Baking Soda

3 Tablespoons coarse salt

3.5 L hot water

20 drops of doTERRA essential oils of choice

 

My favorite doTERRA essential oil combinations for this recipe:

Grapefruit + Peppermint // OnGuard + Wild Orange // Wild Orange + Lemon

directions

Whisk all ingredients together in a large bucket or bowl. Add to a re-used (rinsed-out) laundry detergent bottle or grab a 3.5L jug here. Shake well before using.
