Cleaning Recipes

One of the main reasons I joined doTERRA was to be able to make my own low-tox cleaning products. I was spending a fortune on natural cleaning products where the main ingredient was essential oils. I knew there was a cheaper way and I am sharing a few of my favourite recipes with you which are not only cheap to make they are also so easy even the kids can make them
