Household Hacks Using Essential Oils

Our home environment is full of toxins from commercial cleaners, air fresheners containing artificial fragrances and personal care products. Using essential oils safely in the home can lessen the toxic load, and at the same time, provide therapeutic benefit.

When diffusing, run the diffuser in shorter increments 10-15 minutes on/off at a time for maximum benefits.
