DIY Citrus Stink Away Spray

Disclaimer: this post contains affiliate links.

Since I became a doTERRA Wellness Advocate, I started making my own homemade creations.

I have purchased store-bought Poo Spray for each bathroom in my home but realized that using a few simple items (that I had already in my EO inventory), I could save a lot of money! (Who isn’t about saving a little coin?) And, I am never sure what is exactly in pre-made products, so this gives me peace of mind that I am using natural ingredients.

DIY Stink Away Spray

My bathroom with my DIY Citrus Stink Away Spray

For those of you who don’t know, you shake the Poo Spray into the toilet and sit down to do your business with a pleasant aroma, opposed to, well, a stinky poop aroma.

Here is what you need:
– A 2 ounce Amber Glass Spray Bottle
– 2-3 tablespoons Thayers Alcohol-free Unscented Witch Hazel Toner 
– 1-2 tsp. dish soap. I use Dawn Free & Gentle Dishwashing Liquid Dish Soap
– Distilled Water
– doTERRA Essential Oils; purchase them from my shop, here.

I wanted a Citrus Spray so I used the following combination.

  • 10 drops Wild Orange
  • 15 drops Bergamot
  • 15 drops Lemon
  • 15 drops Grapefruit

You can mix and match what works for you. This spray is for my 25 square foot half bathroom. I add a few more drops for the spray in my bigger bathroom.

DIY Citrus Stink Away Spray

The best essential oils! doTERRA!

Directions:

  1. Add the dish soap to the bottom of the 2-ounce glass spray bottle. Do not use plastic. The dish soap not only cleans the toilet but helps bind with the essential oils. The soap should coat the bottom of the 2-ounce bottle.
  2. Add the witch hazel. The bottle should be one-quarter full.
  3. Add the doTERRA essential oils. (I only use doTERRA.)
  4. Fill the rest of the bottle with distilled water.
  5. Shake it up, baby!
  6. Add a pretty little label and stick on the top of your toilet. Remember to Shake. Spritz. Sit and enjoy the aroma!

doTERRA Products During Pregnancy

Disclaimer: This post is MY personal experience and not to be taken as medical advice. I am not a doctor, nor do I claim to be one, so make sure you seek professional medical advice before using any products or supplements, pregnant or not. Post contains affiliate and referral links. Thanks for supporting my blog. 

Secret’s Out. I’m pregnant with my first child. I’ve come to realize in the 23 weeks I’ve been carrying this cherub that anything negative that I say about pregnancy will be followed by bulging eyeballs and a comment like, “It’ll all be worth it.” I hope so!

I give props to the woman who had an uncomplicated, happy pregnancy. I suffered from all day sickness from Week 5, Day 1 to Week 17, Day 5. Without the help of my husband, an informative, helpful holistic book, and my doTERRA products, I’m not sure if I would have made it through the storm. But I did, and I’m here to help you!

Let’s begin with what products have helped me:

Essential Oils for Pregnancy, Birth & Babies by Stephanie Fritz

Note: This is not a doTERRA product or sold by doTERRA. I can’t begin to tell you how helpful this book is throughout your pregnancy. Stephanie is a midwife who uses essential oils for anything you might (well, hopefully not) endure. She helped guide my holistic pregnancy plan, below.

Ginger and Peppermint Essential Oils

Another disclaimer: *These statements have not been evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration. This product is not intended to diagnose, treat, cure, or prevent any disease.

I had food aversion pretty early on in my pregnancy. I was so nauseous and would vomit for hours during the night. I would be heaving so hard my head would start to pound. I thanked God many times that my bathroom is only 5 steps away from my bed and that my husband was on cue for bringing me my water glass.

doTERRA’s Ginger and Peppermint essential oils are lifesavers for me. I would add one drop of Ginger to a cup of hot water and sip on it throughout the day. Ginger may help with nausea, soothe digestion and may help to reduce gas, bloating, or cramping.* Ginger seemed to calm my stomach when nothing else worked.

Ginger

Peppermint also can be great for digestion and relief from stomach upset. Whenever my head would start to hurt, I would inhale peppermint (and diffuse it in my Petal diffuser), and apply with Fractionated Coconut Oil to the back of my neck. If I needed something refreshing, I would add one drop to a glass of ice water. Peppermint was everywhere I was – my nightstand, my bag, my car…it quickly became my go-to oil.

Peppermint

PB Assist+ & DigestZen Terrazyme 

Gut health is super important, especially when your little cherub is causing you to eat things you don’t normally ingest. Before I was pregnant, I’d try to adhere to the Whole 30 principles (lean meat and fish, vegetables and fruits). My body reacts poorly to dairy, gluten, and soy. Throughout my 13 weeks of hell, I was meat averse and didn’t care for vegetables. So what was I eating? Carbs and dairy. Bread, bagel with cream cheese, pizza, rice and pasta with butter. Some days, it was all I could keep down.

Terrazyme and PB Assist+

PB Assist+ is a pro and pre-biotic, offering 6 billion CFUs of active probiotic cultures and soluble pre-biotic FOS (fructooligosaccharides) that encourage healthy bacterial growth within your body. It intends to support healthy digestive and immune system function. The pills are like no other – you can actually see through the Veggie Cap at a green and clear substance, looking similar to a gelatinous oil. I’m obsessed with my PB Assist+, and have taken them religiously for months. I would take 1 a day, after a meal.

DigestZen Terrazyme are digestive enzymes that help to support a healthy digestion of enzyme deficient, processed foods.* Unfortunately, I was eating things that weren’t the healthiest choices for my dietary intolerances. I would take 1-3 pills a day, depending on how much and what I was eating. DigestZen Terrazyme helps with food tolerance, and I strongly recommend these to anyone needing digestive help.

DigestZen TerraZyme by doTERRA

Isn’t my vitamin holder adorable?

These are my top product recommendations that I have used consistently during the first (and into the second) trimester. I always use Lavender to sleep, Melaleuca for my face wipes, and On Guard when I need immune support. I take the Lifelong Vitality Pack as my prenatal vitamin. I can’t reiterate enough how reading Essential Oils for Pregnancy, Birth & Babies by Stephanie Fritz helped me to safely integrate essential oils and products into my safe, effective pregnancy.

Where do I buy?

Let me help you get started. I am a Wellness Advocate for doTERRA and want nothing more to guide you on your health and wellness journey. (Whatever you do, please do not purchase your oils at the supermarket! doTERRA’s are Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade oils, ensuring your safety when using them topically, internally and aromatically).

Start by browsing my shop, here. If you want to become a wholesale member, click JOIN. If you want to purchase retail, click SHOP.

You have two options to become a wholesale member:

  1. Pay $35 and have a wholesale membership for a year. It will auto-renew and you will get a free 15mL bottle of peppermint as you enter your second year.

My April doTERRA Order

I seriously love doTERRA’s Loyalty Reward Program. In April, I received 8 free products. Yup, you read correctly, eight items I didn’t have to pay for…crazy, right? I picked five of my eight free doTERRA products to review…enjoy!

20170407_174627

Cedarwood Essential Oil

I love Cedarwood. It reminds me of my yearly vacation to Maine. It has a woodsy scent and is used for a plethora of reasons. Cedarwood has calming properties, so diffusing creates a sense of relaxation. I mix 3 drops of Cedarwood and 3 drops of Lavender and diffuse at bedtime for a great night’s sleep. I also mix one drop of Cedarwood into my facial moisturizer to clarify any impurities. Cedarwood is also used to repel insects, so before I go on hikes with my dog, I apply a few drops to my skin. The smell is unbelievable! The wholesale price for Cedarwood is $13.00 USD.

Lavender Essential Oil

I can’t say enough about Lavender. I diffuse with Cedarwood (see above). I also add one drop to my chamomile tea at night, and apply topically to the bottoms of my feet, neck, and temples to relax. I also put a few drops on a cotton ball and stick it in the air vents in my car (no more road rage!). I add one drop to the rinse cycle when I wash my sheets. My bedding smells like lavender, which relaxes me! I haven’t tried cooking or baking with lavender, but you can create wonderful recipes with this essential oil. The wholesale price for Lavender is $21.00 USD.

DigestZen Essential Oil

I must admit – I hate anise. I never liked black licorice. However, DigestZen is amazing. If you take a few drops and put in a veggie capsule, you don’t taste anything. DigestZen provides relief to occasional stomach upset, indigestion, bloating, and gas. It helps you to maintain a healthy gastrointestinal tract in a natural, healthy way. You can diffuse, apply topically to your abdomen, or ingest. DigestZen really helps me feel better when my tummy gives me trouble! The wholesale price for DigestZen is $31.00 USD.

doTERRA Breathe Vapor Stick

Hello, Spring! Bye, seasonal discomfort! The doTERRA Breathe Vapor stick is used to promote feelings of clear airways and easy breathing. When applied to my neck and chest, I feel like I can breathe easier. It feels soothing and cooling, without that greasy, yucky feel. The stick is great for carrying with me in my bag to use throughout the day. The wholesale price is $8.50 USD.

Trim Shake – Chocolate

I am super picky with shakes. I use them as a meal replacement (usually breakfast or lunch) so they need to keep me full and taste good. I mix a scoop of the chocolate Trim Shake with almond milk, ice, and a banana. It’s delicious. One scoop is only 70 calories and provides 8 grams of protein and 2.5 grams of fiber. 40 servings come in the container. Trim Shakes do not contain gluten, are soy free, and GMO free. They are sweetened by stevia. I love drinking them – the chocolate flavor is fantastic and it doesn’t leave an after taste. It keeps me full for hours and I look forward to drinking doTERRA’s Chocolate Trim Shake after a hard workout at the gym. The wholesale price for Trim Shake is $39.50 USD.

Essential oils: My first order – and why I became a Wellness Advocate

My mentor, Kipper, of One Grace Filled Life, sent me samples of On Guard and Deep Blue essential oils. My immune system is shot; I work in a variety of nursing homes, surrounded by very sick individuals for 8-10 hours a day. I have Epstein Barr, which when active, makes me a useless human being. I have tried everything to boost my immunity, besides essential oils. I fell in love with On Guard, rubbing a few drops mixed with FCO (fractioned coconut oil) on the bottoms of my feet, neck, and hands. Even though On Guard is an energizing scent, I was falling asleep within minutes. (Essential oils react differently for some individuals.) I used Deep Blue on my lower back to help a back ache from the beginning of January. Those two samples weren’t enough, I wanted more.

I ordered the AromaTouch Diffused Kit which includes 5 mL bottles of:

  • Balance
  • On Guard
  • Lavender
  • Malaleuca
  • AromaTouch
  • Deep Blue
  • Wild Orange
  • Peppermint

It also includes:

  • Fractioned Coconut Oil (FCO), 4 oz.
  • Petal Diffuser
  • Wellness Advocate Introductory Packet

I added to my order:

  • 15 mL Slim & Sassy
  • 15 mL bottle On Guard
  • 15 mL bottle Lavender
  • On Guard Whitening Toothpaste

doterra2

Needless to say, I was a little overwhelmed when my package came! I started by setting up the Petal Diffuser right next to my bed and adding a few drops of Lavender essential oil. My husband walked in the room after 15 minutes and said, “It smells like a frickin’ spa in here, Danielle!” That night, we both slept like babies!

My mom, a massage therapist, gave me a back massage with the AromaTouch essential oil. This could be applied directly to your skin, and is branded as a massage blend. My mom mixed AromaTouch with lotion and the scent was fantastic. Deep Blue, needs to be diluted with a carrier oil, such as FCO, but helps cool and soothe the skin (great for athletes).

I love adding a drop to Slim & Sassy to my water; which contains grapefruit, lemon, peppermint, ginger and cinnamon. I get a mason jar, fill it with ice, add a drop of Slim & Sassy, fill with filtered water, and enjoy my beverage. It helps maintain my girlish figure, gives my metabolism a boost, and tastes great!

I have been using Tom’s of Maine Antiplaque and Whitening Fluoride-Free Toothpaste for years. (Affiliate Link) The On Guard Natural Whitening Toothpaste is amazing. It has a cinnamon and mint flavor. My teeth feel super clean and my breath is fresh. My husband said it was “different,” but that if it helps keep maintain his pearly whites, he has no problem using it daily.

I diffused Wild Orange, Peppermint, and Slim & Sassy in my kitchen. Wild Orange is a powerful cleanser and purifies the air. Peppermint promotes healthy respiratory function, and with this crazy NJ weather, my allergies have been out of control! The Slim & Sassy I diffuse before I go to the gym; it is energizing and uplifting.

When I am blogging, I put a drop or two of Balance, which is a grounding blend that promotes well-being and calmness, in my palms, rub together, and inhale. It is very woodsy and relaxing. It allows me to just write freely without judgment.

The Melaleuca (tea tree) oil is a favorite during my beauty regimen. I add a drop to my facial cleaner, moisturizer, or shampoo. If I don’t use the Slim & Sassy in my water, I add a drop of Melaleuca, which helps boost immunity. When we have the wood burner going, we add a few drops to the steamer, and it fills the room with a very earthy scent.

Many essential oils can be used as cleaning agents. I will update when I experiment! 🙂

Purchasing the AromaTouch Diffused Kit was a great decision. Not only was it economical, but I got to incorporate and sample 8 different essential oils.


So, Danielle, how do I order?

Option 1 – Wholesale, 25% off all products, STRONGLY RECOMMENDED

With a wholesale membership, you get 25% off all products. There is no requirement to spend an amount, or to purchase every month, or to sell anything. It’s like a membership to BJ’s or Costco, except you can get the membership FREE if you buy an enrollment kit.

Purchase an enrollment kit and get free membership:

  • Click HERE. If you need my Sponsor ID, it is 4191408.
  • Choose one of the enrollment kits as your first product and the $35 USD membership fee will be waived.
  • See details on the enrollment kits here (window will open in a new tab).
  • Both my mom and I purchased the $150 USD AromaTouch Diffused Kit.

I don’t want an enrollment kit, so I will pay the $35 membership fee:

  • Sign up here with my Sponsor ID, 4191408, and choose ‘Wholesale’.
  • Choose your products ‘a la carte’, and the $35 fee will be added.
  • Membership renewal costs $25 after the first year, but you get a free bottle of Peppermint ($27.33 USD, retail).

Option 2 – Retail

I really don’t recommend this option. This is for the person who wants to order one or two oils and then very seldom, or never, order…

  • Visit my shop, click the “SHOP” tab, add your items and check-out like you would any other shopping website.
  • Thanks for shopping with me!
  • Note: I know that you see some of these products on Amazon from retailers. I would be extremely cautious ordering from retailers because you don’t know exactly where they are coming from, and if they are 100% pure. Besides, wouldn’t you want ME to guide you on your essential oil experience?

Option 3: FREE IS FOR ME! – Earn free products or build a business

  • Simply sign up here with my Sponsor ID, 4191408, when prompted, choose “Wholesale”.
  • Select the option to become a Wellness Advocate.
  • E-mail me to let me know you’ve joined; I will be HAPPY to help you get started.
  • I was hesitant to become a Wellness Advocate. I really don’t need another thing on my already full plate. If I can help myself and others through natural and holistic methods, while having fun and making money, then why not? Besides, I love trying new products (hello, product reviews!).

How do I make money and/or get free products?

  • I would be happy to discuss enrollment into a LRP (Loyalty Reward Program) with you. A LRP is like an auto-ship enrollment (like on Amazon). You can edit your order up until the day before auto-ship will take place. You earn percentages off and points. Contact me to learn more: realmofvibesdg@gmail.com.

It is super easy to implement essential oils into your life. Between diffusing them, rubbing them on your sore spots, and adding them to your favorite drink, essential oils can provide a huge therapeutic benefit, along with a pay check for my entrepreneurs.
