I love using my essential oils for practical uses around the house! Whenever I buy fruit or veggies, I always clean them really good so we aren't getting any gross bacteria or who knows what from the transport trucks and in the grocery stores. Plus sometimes the produce is covered in wax to help preserve it.. um yuck! I try to purchase organic, but it's not always feasible. So I follow the 80/20 rule and I take the dirty 20 list with me when I go grocery shopping. This is always my cleaning process if I do organic or not!
Here's what I use:
1 Large bowl water to cover produce
1/4 cup vinegar
4-8 drops of lemon essential oil or any citrus oil (wild orange, grapefruit, tangerine)
Swirl around and let sit for at least 5 minutes. Then rinse and store in a container with a paper towel to soak up any moisture.
Not only does this clean the produce, but it also makes it last MUCH longer! #winwin

Hi! Welcome to my first blog post! I am excited to get on here and share! My name is Corie and I am a wife, mother of two girls, accountant and I also educate people on essential oils. I love treating my family using natural solutions and detoxing my life (in multiple ways!). Its definitely a work in progress. I never used to use anything natural, I was an OTC pill popper, taking a pill for every ailment. I had no idea how bad that was for you and I didn't even know there was another way.
My Mom introduced me to the oils when I was pregnant with my 1st daughter. I left them in the drawer for 6 months. It wasn't until she came to visit that we tried the lavender to help my daughter sleep. Worked SO well! Not much longer after that my doctor wanted me to give my daughter some vitamin d drops. I went and got the brand they recommended and gave her them as directed and she LOST HER MIND. They upset her stomach so much! I was shocked. So I looked at the ingredients.. caramel coloring. What the heck. Why do we care what color these drops are for INFANTS.
I immediately threw them away and began my research. I found some dye free drops with nothing added. Then I began looking into EVERYTHING I was using. Essential oils just fit into that even better than I had ever imagined. I started using them for everything with my daughter, then myself and then my husband and in our home. We use them for immune support, cleaning, cooking, mood, pain, and so much more. Its our first choice of healthcare and it is SO EMPOWERING. Join me on this journey!
