I am so excited to share this blog post with you today!!
It’s no news to my readers that I love the smell of a clean house. As you know, I loved candles and embraced them for years until I found out they weren’t exactly what I wanted my family and I inhaling. Same goes for carpet deodorizers! Ugh… I loved them but stopped using them and have missed them ever since.
Well I’m here to tell you that God has opened my eyes to a better way to make my carpet all fresh and happy and in a healthy way!
This recipe is so easy you will be ecstatic! I sure was!
It’s only 2 ingredients! Baking Soda and YL Pure Essential Oil. This recipe will not only benefit your family, but it will also save you money! I am showing you mine that I made with the oil blend, ‘Joy.’ It smells incredible and according to Reference Guide for Essential Oils by Connie and Alan Higley , “When inhaled, it brings back memories of being loved, being held, sharing loving times, feeling those blocks in our lives where perhaps we have shut down to love or love of self. When there is grief, the adenoids and the adrenal glands shut down; Joy opens those glands.” (italics and bold print added by me)
Sign me up! I’ll take it all!! I love this blend so much I just ordered more! This is one I don’t want to be without!

The possibilities here are endless when it comes to what oils you can use. I personally plan on making quite a few shakers! Lavender (which has been known to help kill and repel fleas. Terrific for pet owners!) Thieves, oh my yes! Lemon oil… Purification.. Believe… Peace & Calming… Stress Away. I could go on and on!
However, I have little ones getting up soon, so without further adieu, here you go!!
What you’ll need:
1. A shaker bottle (Parmesan ones work great!)
2. Baking Soda
3. 5-7 Drops of Your favorite Young Living Essential Oil
1. Fill empty container 1/2 way with baking soda.
2. Add your oil.
3. Close & shake.
4. Fill the rest of the way with baking soda.
5. Close & shake again.
YOU’RE DONE!! Wasn’t that easy!
Simply sprinkle on carpet and let sit for a couple minutes. Then vacuum. If you are in need of a little more deodorizing, simply leave your carpet deodorizer on a little longer. The baking soda will get rid of the smell and your YL essential oil of choice will leave your carpet and room smelling divine! Want to purchase Pure Essential Oils? Click HERE 🙂
*Side Note* I first discovered the power of baking soda when I had a dog staying with us that perched on my couch and relieved herself. O.O Yes, you read that correct. My girls stood in awe giggling and grossed out. All I could think about is whoever sat in that seat smelling dog feces forever, and that my friends, was not a happy thought. I did some Googling quickly! After we cleaned up the mess, I
dumped sprinkled some baking soda on the spot and left it alone for 10 minutes. Then I vacuumed it up. Now here’s where it got weird. I had to smell it to see if the smell was gone. I mean literally, I had to get my nose right up there and take a whiff. Praise be to our God, it didn’t stink!! There was no smell at all! And this was when I first really fell in love with baking soda! LOL Welcome to my world!
