As most of you know, I’ve recently moved and so I’m unpacking slower than usual because I’m still working full time. This past weekend I was working on getting some of my wood furniture pieces dusted off and loaded back up with their normal contents when I realized the cloth I was using to dust the surfaces wasn’t getting the dust completely off. So I grabbed some of my unscented baby wipes that I have on hand for all kinds of useful things and I added a drop of my Lavender essential oil in the middle of it. As I rubbed all of the surfaces with the scented wipe, I could clearly see that the semi-moist wipe was getting up all the dust and also leaving behind the lingering scent of Lavender. This is totally safe to do and you can find all kinds of natural baby wipes for sale that don’t have any chemicals or synthetics in them that could harm your wood surfaces. Adding in the Lavender oil, or any oil that you especially love the scent of, will make your home smell wonderful for days. And each time a person walks by the furniture, the wafting air naturally releases the scent of the oil into the room. If you don’t have a diffuser yet, this is a good trick to use! ~ Another tip I’ve talked about before is to rub a line of any preferred essential oil under the rim of a wood table, around a baby’s crib, over light bulbs that are cool, and spritzed on window screens. All of these will add the scent of the oils into your home for days, making everyone’s mood a cheerful one. ~ For more DIY ideas using doTERRA’s oils, simply type in DIY in the Search window at the top of this page and a ton of ideas will come up!
