Head over to my previous blog post all about “Airing Out your Dirty Laundry” to learn more about why it is so important to be aware of what’s in your laundry products.

It will have all the containers you need and some extras for other oily DIYs! 

Love me some distilled white vinegar, such a great way to naturally clean and disinfect!
Witch hazel acts as an emulsifier. As we all know oil and water do not mix well so the witch hazel helps the oils to mix into the water a little better, what is called emulsifying.  
For essential oils I only use Young Living Essential Oils because I know exactly where these oils come from. I've been to three of young livings farms, they have over 25 farms throughout the world, and I love that I can see the heart of the growing process.  
Transparency is very important to me and YL has a completely open door policy. Anyone can go walk on the farms, stick their hands in the dirt, see the harvesting and distillation processes. Their farming practices are so beyond our USDA standards its incredible.  For instance, their week control is either humans hand picking the weeds or sheep, isn’t that amazing
I use Young Living oils because I know they work, and I know they're amazing.
