DIY Sunday


What are you up to today?

Here’s the view from here:

It’s breezy & right now there’s some blue sky … yet it’s been threatening to take a dive all morning …

So! I’ve decided to indulge my homebody self! After abhyanga & meditation, a workout & some cleaning — the furballs from B & T are mobile 😂 — & I’m on to some DIY cleaning supplies.

Here’s the view from our kitchen:

I decided on 3 recipes today: shower cleaner, tub scrub & all-purpose cleaner.

My pitta nature gets impatient with the long explanations of why a blogger is making what they’re making, so here are the recipes. (You’re always welcome to read my other posts, where I go on ad nauseum 😂)

Note: Remember to use glass or metal containers when storing your concoctions made with essential oils.

Shower Cleaning Spray (mold/mildew preventer)

2 cups water

30 drops melaleuca essential oil

10 drops peppermint essential oil

Add ingredients to glass spray bottle and shake well. Spray directly on mold/mildew. Do not rinse. Repeat daily/weekly as needed.

The other 2 reciped I found in Doterra’s blog archive:

The other 2 recipes I made:

Tub Scrub Recipe

All-Purpose Cleaning Spray

(I used the Eucalyptus, Wild Orange, Peppermint blend 🙂 )

Alrighty, there you have it! If it inspires you, let me know in the comments or in class!

Now I’m off to watch some Wanda Sykes comedy. Keep it light as summer approaches, friends! More light, less heat 🙏🌞❤🌱.

See you in class soon!

I practice & share Hatha Yoga for a simple reason -- it works. Hatha Yoga in the Himalayan Tradition is a holistic system of philosophy & practices passed down through an unbroken 5,000 year lineage of Himalayan sages. What Hatha Yoga is not: trendy, bendy or one-&-done. What Hatha Yoga is: a systematic approach to uncovering the real, authentic YOU in body, mind & spirit. Hatha Yoga cultivates well-being, stability, clarity & ease in modern life through traditional, time-tested practices. I also recognize both our shared humanity & our differing privileges & barriers -- I am a cis-gendered white female with a graduate degree, who has dealt with family trauma & an eating disorder. My goals in my own practice include to cultivate awareness of my own privileges & social conditioning, unlearn & re-learn in order to be mindful & take compassionate action toward a more beautiful, just & peaceful world for ALL humans, creatures & our Earth. I'm making mistakes daily, & hopeful that I'm falling forward toward these goals & vision. I hope we can walk our paths & support each other along the way.
