If you’re looking to get the toxins out of your life and live a more natural lifestyle, checking the ingredients in your cleaning products is a must! The majority of commercial cleaning products are loaded with toxic chemicals that cause a host of health problems, including infertility, respiratory problems, and cancer. To see how your favorite products score, check out this super helpful guide!
In our last post, I shared an easy, safe, and non-toxic way to clean out your dishwasher. Following this recipe will truly help your dishwasher run much more efficiently.
Today I want to highlight one of my favorite, non-toxic cleaning products that has so many different uses. It’s so versatile, you will find yourself using it for just about everything. The essential oils in this product not only smell so fresh and clean, but they have scientifically been shown to boost your mood (who doesn’t want a better mood while cleaning?!).
OnGuard Cleaner Concentrate is full of essential oils like Wild Orange, Clove, Cinnamon, Eucalyptus, and Rosemary. Each of these oils have been studied for their cleansing and protective properties, which makes this an ideal cleanser to keep the whole family healthy without the toxic side effects.
Check out just a few of my favorite ways to use this incredible concentrate (btw, a little of this concentrate goes a long way!):
Clean out your jet tub
Into running water pour 1/4 cup OnGuard concentrate, 4 cups vinegar, 1 cup baking soda, and 10 drops Purify essential oil blend (you could also try lemon or melaleuca). Then I let the jets run for a good 20 minutes to clean inside the jets. Try to do this every 3-4 months with regular use of your tub. Your whole bathroom will smell amazing! You can also do this for a regular tub. Just fill the tub half way and pour contents into running water. Let sit for 20 minutes, then scrub well.
Clean your Makeup Brushes
Dirt and bacteria quickly accumulate on makeup brushes and can cause skin irritation and clogged pores. OnGuard’s potent blend of oils help thoroughly cleanse those brushes and get them squeaky clean (and smelling fresh) ✨ I like to add additional drops of whatever essential oil I’m in the mood for – to this batch I added 2 drops each of melaleuca and lavender (for extra cleansing power). Frankincense and Geranium are other favorites that are good for the skin!
Create a Delicious-Smelling All-Purpose Cleaner
This Cleaning Spray smells so fresh and citrusy, you will look for excuses to clean your kitchen! In a large glass spray bottle I pour 1/4 cup vinegar, 2 T. OnGuard Concentrate, 5 drops lemon oil, 15 drops wild orange oil, and fill the rest with distilled water. Spray on your kitchen counters, in the bathroom, on your mirrors, anywhere you want cleaned. One bottle of OnGuard concentrate can make up to 10 of these spray bottles, so it’s very economical!
I definitely recommend OnGuard Concentrate for every home for safe, non-toxic, and effective cleaning. If you’re looking to overhaul your health, your home, and your medicine cabinet, check out my FREE starter guide below!
