So I may be getting a little ahead of myself by posting DIY's before I've even introduced myself. Let me tell you a little bit about me and my family. I am a 37 year old, full time working mommy and wife. I've been married, oh so very happily, to the love of my life for almost 6 years and we have an amazingly, let's say, "spirited" 17 month old daughter.

My husband and I have always tried to live healthy and tend to err on the side of holistic methods regarding wellness rather than traditional medicine. When I found out I was pregnant I took my affinity for natural, organic foods and holistic medicine to a whole other level. Once my daughter was born, I wanted to find a way to help keep us all healthy and limit all of those "sick visits" I heard other mommy's always talking about. Enter doTERRA. We integrated doTERRA essential oils into our routine when our baby was about 8 weeks old and I can not even begin to explain the benefits we have all experienced. Let's just say I have had to take B to one sick visit and it ended up being an ear infection that I took care of with essential oils. I can truly say doTERRA has changed our lives and, if you want, I can help it change yours as well.

So our 8 year old chihuahua, Delilah, gets a little angry every now and then that our little one gets all the attention. Ms. Delilah decided to start peeing on the carpet every once in awhile. I was searching and searching for a way to get the urine smell out naturally... well, I've found something that works 100%! Try this homemade recipe and see what I'm talking about.

Pour the following ingredients into a spray bottle:
  • 5 oz hydrogen peroxide
  • 1 tsp vinegar
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 3 drops of doTERRA Wild Orange

When all of the ingredients have been added to the bottle shake gently. Now generously spray the affected area and allow it to completely dry (it will become powder like once the formula dries). Then, vacuum the powder up and viola! No More Smell!!

If you are in need of doTERRA Wild Orange please contact me at and I can help :)

I would like to bring you all on my journey. This is a journey that started by wanting to keep my family happy and healthy and has turned into me wanting to share that happiness and healthiness with the everyone and anyone who wants to listen! Follow along as I talk about how doTERRA essential oils have changed my family’s life. I’ll share personal stories along with recipes, tips, tricks, etc. Thanks for coming along for the ride!
