How clean are your brushes?

Are your makeup brushes in need of some deep cleaning? This is one of the reasons that we have skin problems. We never think about cleaning our brushes. Today’s “Do you dōTERRA daily” is a makeup brush cleanser that is super easy and only requires three simple ingredients.


Ingredients

2 tablespoons doTERRA Fractionated Coconut Oil
5 drops Tea Tree oil
5 drops Grapefruit oil

Instructions

  1. Add Fractionated Coconut Oil and essential oils into a small bowl.
  2. Swirl your makeup brush in the Fractionated Coconut Oil mixture for 30 seconds, or until you see the makeup stored in your brush start to come out.
  3. Rub in a circular motion on the palm of hand to help get the makeup out.
  4. Rinse the brush under warm water. Gently squeeze brush bristles until clean, and the water runs clear. Note: Make sure to point the bristles down when running under water. Direct water contact may loosen the glue where the bristles are attached and shorten the life of your brushes.
  5. Let your newly cleaned makeup brushes dry on a towel for four hours, or until dry. Repeat once a month, or as needed.

And just because I like to have options, I thought you might like a few too…

Get thee hence satan (or super bugs)

Oh the cleaning that has been happening around here is crazy! If you read Tuesday’s blog then you know the “visitor” that has invaded my house is not one that is a welcome guest. Hands are being washed every few minutes, my son has been banished from the kitchen and all the door handles, light switches and stair railings have been wiped down…repeatedly with OnGuard Spray.

Here’s the cool thing, no one else in the house is displaying any symptoms so we are pretty sure that our uninvited guest got the idea and has vacated the building.

You might ask why I use OnGuard and not typical household cleaners? Science is why!! Check out this super cool science project that was done by a 5th grader

Did you know that chemical cleaners are not only hazardous for your health in many ways, they are pretty ineffective. The only thing that performs as well or better than OnGuard is straight up bleach in every Petri dish experiment I’ve seen! Kids can clean with OnGuard and even lick it with no concerns to toxicity.

This was a post by Katy Smolik. Her son Hayden did a 5th-grade school project on OnGuard essential oil versus Clorox and Lysol and how it kills bacteria. His results speak volumes! Katy said the Clorox didn’t make it a day! The bacteria was sourced from their chicken coop.

Today’s “Do you dōTERRA daily” is to make the switch to On Guard products. There are a bunch of them, I’m not going to stop you from getting them all (I couldn’t live without them all) but I will tell you if you can only switch one right now go with the On Guard Blend. When you have this blend, you can DIY most of the rest of them.

No time to DIY, me either, get all the OnGuard Products here. You won’t regret it

You put that in your mouth?

Have you ever forgotten your toothbrush when you travel? I did this weekend.  I love that hotels will provide you with a complimentary toothbrush, but have you ever really looked at the toothpaste they bring you?

Ok that little tube is so cute! But don’t let its cuteness fool you. (click on the pic for ingredients)

Today’s “Do you dōTERRA daily?” is about how a simple change of toothpaste can significantly impact your overall health. Onguard toothpaste to the rescues!!

Brushing your teeth everyday should be a no brainer, my question is why are there SO MANY toxins in your toothpastes? Did you know that there is a warning label on your toothpaste? I found this ingredient particularly disturbing.

I am so grateful to have doTERRA On Guard Natural Whitening Toothpaste. It cleans my teeth and freshens my breath all without adding toxins to my body. If you want to read more about the ingredients and the benefits of doTERRA On Guard Natural Whitening Toothpaste, click this link.
