LeReve Aromatherapy Domestic Goddess

Domestic Goddess

Pure Essential Oils have cleansing, deodorising, healing, disinfectant, antiviral, antibacterial and antifungal properties. 100% plant-based oils are both human and eco-friendly and are toxin-free unlike many cleaning products available in supermarkets.

Often chemical-based ingredients used in most conventional cleaning products can be just as harmful as the dirt and germs they are meant to eliminate.

Flaunt your inner domestic goddess by creating your own DIY potions for showers, carpets, tiles, furniture, bench-tops and toilets. You’ll find a little Aromatherapy goes a very long way. Your home will be beautifully clean and friends will want to know your cleaning secrets! Read on for some domestic goddess recipes to get you started, then have fun inventing your own.

 

Domestic Goddess Recipes

 

Ant Rid

Lavender 3, Peppermint 4, Tea Tree 3
Mix oils in a spray bottle with 500mL water. Spray on surfaces where ants are invading regularly until the ants disappear.

Aromatic Vacuuming

Geranium 1, Lavender 1, Lime 1
Add a few drops of these combined oils to cotton wool and place inside the vacuum cleaner bag to release a nice fragrance while you vacuum. Using essential oils will also kill fleas and mites that are sucked into your vacuum cleaner.

Carpet Deodoriser

Lavender 2, Orange 2, Ylang Ylang 2
Combine six drops of oil with 1 cup of baking soda and mix well (you could use an empty parmesan cheese container as a shaker can). Sprinkle all over the carpet and let sit for 15 minutes before vacuuming. The baking soda will absorb funky smells and the oil will freshen and deodorise.

Clean Your Cleaning Cloths

Lemon 2, Tea Tree 2
To disinfect cleaning cloths, soak them overnight in a bowl of water with a few drops of oil.

Cooking Odours

Lavender 2, Peppermint 2
To get rid of cooking odours, add four drops of oil to a simmering pan of clean water. Allow the aromatic steam to permeate through the kitchen, leaving a pleasant scent.

Dishwasher Boost

Lemon 3
Pour 3 drops of Lemon oil inside your dishwasher just before turning it on. The disinfecting and cleansing power will be doubled!

Dust Mite Allergy

Eucalyptus/Cedarwood 5, Lavender 3, Peppermint 2
Mix oils in a spray bottle with 500mL water. Lightly mist over mattress and under the bed, then vacuum 10 minutes later to remove dead mites. Also add this blend to your laundry detergent when washing bedding.

Flea & Tick Pet Spray

Eucalyptus/Cedarwood 3, Lavender 3, Tea Tree 4
Mix oils in a spray bottle with 500mL water. Spray around your pet’s bedding and directly onto your pet’s coat, avoiding the eyes and mouth. If your pet has a tick, apply Tea Tree directly onto the tick to help remove it, then go straight to the vet.

Mix oils in a spray bottle with 500mL water. Shake well and use as a natural fly spray.

Mice hate peppermint! Mix oil in a spray bottle with 500mL water. Spray this mixture anywhere you have seen mouse droppings or you think a mouse might have been.
