Rant on Makeup & Self-Image

My little rant on makeup and self image. I believe in natural beauty, inner beauty and that your inner beauty shines through, regardless of your makeup or hair! Also, if you don’t possess inner beauty, that comes through as well, regardless of makeup and hair. Love yourself and put that energy out. Then that very energy will bring a similar love to you.

DoTerra OnGuard Cleaner Concentrate Review & Demonstration

All in all, I am very impressed with DoTerra’s onGuard Cleaner Concentrate. First, it’s all natural and non-toxic, so no need for “well-ventilated area” or protective gloves when using it. It’s safe to use around kids (even babies!) and pets. Second, it actually CLEANS. No elbow grease required. Even windows and mirrors. Even stuck-on, long neglected gunky messes were cleaned up with ease. Third, it handles EVERYTHING. One bottle of cleaner concentrate will handle cleaning up a staggering number of things: floors, countertops, tubs, showers, sinks, walls, windows, mirrors, spills, even toilets!! Oh, and it handles dishwashing with ease regardless of whether you are using a dishwasher or handwashing. And, it smells GREAT! All in all, this one cleaner concentrate can and has replaced every single cleaner product that I used to use around the house. Every single one. It’s highly concentrated so one bottle actually lasts a surprisingly long time. I made a video of using this cleaner to tackle a deep-cleaning of my stovetop that had been neglected for way too long, so check it out below… Continue reading DoTerra OnGuard Cleaner Concentrate Review & Demonstration
