DIY: Best Soft Scrub Cleanser

Cleaning the bathroom probably isn’t your favorite chore, but it can be! Breathing in the scent of harsh, synthetic cleaners can make the experience unpleasant, but the fresh aromas of nonsynthetic doTERRA essential oils makes this must-do chore a much more enjoyable experience.
The next time you clean your bathroom, try mixing up an effective cleaner with ingredients you likely already have at home. This easy recipe for a soft scrub is great for getting rid of soap scum, removing stains, and brightening your tub, tile, and toilet. The best thing about it? Naturally sourced Lemon essential oil gives this scrub an extra cleansing boost while leaving behind a fresh, citrusy scent.
¾ rounded cup baking soda
¼ cup unscented liquid castile soap
1 tablespoon water
1 tablespoon vinegar
5–10 drops Lemon essential oil
Note: Liquid castile soap is a vegetable-based soap commonly found in health food stores. Look for unscented.  You can find my favorite here

  1. In bowl, combine baking soda and castile soap until the mixture looks homogenous.
  2. Add water to the baking soda and soap mixture, then stir.
  3. Add vinegar, cleaner concentrate, and essential oil until the consistency feels like a soft paste.
  4. Start cleaning! To use, apply some of the paste to the bathtub or other ceramic or tile surfaces. Allow to sit for 5-10 minutes, then gently scrub with a soft brush or rag. Once finished scrubbing, take a wet cloth and wipe clean to reveal a sparkly surface! For an extra-deep clean, consider repeating with two to four applications.
