If you’re looking for an alternative to commercial air fresheners, there are many completely safe and natural alternatives to keep your house fresh. Below is a fast and easy guide to make your very own air freshener. It only requires two ingredients; essential oils and baking soda. Let’s get started.
• A small mason jar and lid
• 6 drops of desired dōTERRA essential oil. You can use any oil you want. We recommend 3 drops of On Guard Protective Blend and 3 drops of Purify Cleansing Blend
• 1/4 cup of baking soda
1 Pour the baking soda and essential oil into the mason jar.
2 Seal the lid of the Mason jar tight.
3 Poke a series of holes in the lid (do this with a hammer and a nail). Make a fun design with the holes!
4 Place the jar somewhere you want to smell fresh.
Tip: If the scent begins to fade, just add more drop of oil to the jar to rejuvenate it.
Most commercial disinfecting wipes are made of harsh chemicals and fragrances which can be unsafe for your family and environment… Take the worry out of your life by making your own cleansing wipes!
• 1 roll premium paper towels
• 2 cups warm water
• 2 tablespoons Fractionated Coconut Oil
• 3 drops On Guard Protective Blend
• 3 drops Lemon essential oil
• 1-2 Tablespoons On Guard Protective Blend Foaming Hand Wash
• An airtight storage container
1 Cut paper towel in half widthwise with a serrated or electric knife. Use half the roll now, and half later.
2 Combine water, fractionated coconut oil, essential oils, and Hand Wash in a small bowl.
3 Pour the mixture over the paper towels and then cover with the airtight lid letting the mixture absorb for 10 minutes.
4 Turn the container over and let sit for another 10 minutes.
5 Remove and discard the cardboard middle. Just pull the wipes from the center when you are ready to use.

Looking for a power boost? We all run low on confidence from time to time, but you can get motivated again and start seizing the day in just a few minutes. Whether you need to be at your best for a job interview, a big presentation, a first date, or simply to tackle today’s long list of errands, these tips can help you find your tenacity. Make these 15 ways to feel more powerful a part of your regular routine and combine them with your favorite essential oils for heroic effects.
1. Strike a pose
Did you know that the way you stand can make you feel more powerful and confident? Stick your hands on your hips, with your feet hip-width apart, and hold for two minutes. This is the super power pose for a reason! Find out more about this power pose and pick up even more poses for a powerful mood.
2. Sweat it out
You know how powerful regular exercise can make you in the long term, but working out helps in the short term, too. When you exercise, your body releases endorphins, which invigorate both your brain and your body. Hit the gym before an important meeting, event, or get-together to help your feel more powerful!
3. Smell like success
Create your own signature power scent! Combine aromas that promote an invigorating environment—like Peppermint, Bergamot, or Eucalyptus—with your personal favorites for a signature roll-on that gets the ball rolling. Our DIY perfume blog post is the perfect place to start.
4. Dress up
Getting dressed up can instantly make you feel more confident. Wake up 15 minutes early to style your hair and apply your makeup just how you like it, or try a new look with our guide on how to apply eyeliner for your eye shape. Combine with your favorite power outfit and you’ll be dressed for success!
5. Jam out
Your favorite high-powered songs can help you get and stay motivated until your tasks are done. Create a playlist full of your favorite upbeat anthems and listen to it any time you need to slay the day.
6. Fuel your fire
It’s hard to feel powerful when you’re hangry or missing out on key nutrients. Making time for a vegetable now and then can do wonders for a positive outlook. Prepare a healthy lunch or snack on the days when you need extra motivation. Stash some dried wolfberries in your car or desk for emergency snacking, or take a break from carrot sticks and salad to try some of our no-bake energy ball recipes.
It’s much easier to power through the challenges of the day when your body is operating at 100 percent. Keep your strength up by staying hydrated. Ditch the soda drive-thru and add a drop of Citrus Fresh™ Vitality™ or Peppermint Vitality to your water for a powerful burst of flavor without the sugar or artificial
Get your circulation flowing for a boost of powerful energy! If you feel overwhelmed, take a moment to do some simple stretches, listening to your body to locate sore or tender muscles, and give them a little extra attention. You can even give yourself a massage with our Cool Azul™ Sports Gel.
9. Think like a winner
Simply thinking about past wins can help you find inspiration for the next task. Take 15 minutes to make a list of all the things you’re good at or proud of having accomplished over the past year.
10. Turn on your diffuser
Diffuse one of our blends designed to create a more empowered atmosphere, such as Motivation™, Raven™, or En-R-Gee™, which is an invigorating combination of Lemongrass, Balsam Fir, Black Pepper, and Juniper.
11. Get spiritual
When life gets hectic and busy, connecting with your larger purpose—whatever that means to you—can give you the opportunity to feel grounded. Spend 15 minutes in prayer, reading religious texts, meditating, or appreciating the bounty of nature to connect with your spiritual side. Check out our meditation podcast for a guided experience.
12. Jump out of bed
Wake up a little earlier and jump out of bed right away. Ditch the snooze button and get your day off on the right foot with a power pose, a warm drink, and a hearty breakfast, like Gary’s True Grit™ Einkorn Pancake and Waffle Mix.
13. Act in spite of fears
Don’t avoid things you’re afraid of: Act to get over that fear! Whether you’re afraid of commitment, heights, or speaking in front of a crowd, acknowledging the fear and doing it anyway can be an invigorating way to blast through your stumbling blocks and mental obstacles.
14. Plan less
It might seem counterproductive, but if you’re feeling overwhelmed, ditch your schedule and to-do list. Focus just on the next thing you have to accomplish. You’ll feel more powerful when you can celebrate each win and then move on to the next project without feeling like your accomplishments are diminished by the other things you haven’t completed.
15. Be authentic
Say what you feel, when you feel it. Be 100 percent, authentically you! Be kind and tactful, but don’t be afraid to say what you want to say and do what you want to do. This kind of freedom can empower you to take on your biggest challenges.
