Dishwasher tablets have been a sticking point for me. I love the Ecostore ones and the Abode dishwashing powder is next level and so low tox it’s a no-brainer. However, I wanted to make my own and it took me a few goes to get these ones down pat! They work so well so I am happy to endorse them on this website. Please let me know how you go!
Some of our most toxic cleaners are saved for the toilet and then we sit with our most vulnerable parts directly on these surfaces. I think this is one of the most important alternative to traditional cleaners so I wasn’t going to leave this one off.
You can be so versatile with this cleaner and store it in your spare glass containers for use over time. I love the different smells you can create and how amazing the toilet shines after using this one. You can get your beautiful doTERRA oils here.
* 95g bicarbonate of soda
* 10 drops Eucalyptus or tea-tree oil (I actually love Siberian Fir)
* 125mL white vinegar
* 2 tablespoons hydrogen peroxide (optional)
* Sprinkle the bicarbonate of soda (+ hydrogen peroxide) around the loo.
* Drop the oil into the toilet bowl water.
* Pour the vinegar over the sprinkled bicarbonate of soda and, as it bubbles up, use your toilet brush to swirl things around and scrub.
🍃We have definitely been conditioned to need chemicals for cleaning. Our household has been chemical free for the past 3.5 years and our house is very clean! We have 2 big dogs and our house DOES NOT SMELL like dogs 🐶🐶.
🍃I have transitioned to essential oils for my cleaning over the past couple of years and I haven’t looked back. I don’t even use vinegar anymore because it’s not needed (and stone bench tops don’t love it).
🍃I have been asked to check so many “natural” “organic” “pure” cleaning products in the last few years and most don’t stack up because there is no standard. THERE IS NO STANDARD OR GUIDELINES in Australia to determine whether something is allowed to have Natural, Organic or Pure on the label! This creates much confusion to the masses and I am keen to direct you to some trusted sources. The 2 below are the most easily accessible and when you find one that is good, you stick to it! Until you find out how simple DIY is.
🍃1. Abode: This is a beautiful Australian brand that was created by a couple in Queensland who were sick of the chemicals in their environment so decided to make their own. Then family and friends started to jump on board and then the whole of Australia! This is your lowest tox, pre-prepared cleaning products. They seem to be concerned and conscious about the environment as well so that gets the tick of approval from me too.
🍃2. Ecostore: This brand is the entry level to people transitioning to low tox cleaning products. They are available at Woolworths and is easy to put into your trolley if you are still shopping at the big ones. Be careful with these guys though, DO NOT USE their personal care products like shampoo and conditioner or bubble bath. The cleaning products pass the low tox numbers.
🍃3. DIY is the best: The ingredient list is too long on all those cleaners but to be honest cleaning can be SO simple.
* 1/4 cup white vinegar (unless a porous benchtop – use 1 tablespoon of Castile soap instead, I personally don’t use vinegar at all)
* fill the rest with distilled water
* 30 drops of essential oil
* On Guard: powerful mould killer
* Eucalyptus, Tea Tree, Lemon, Wild Orange, any citrus oils, Lavender, Rosemary… (get your oils here)
This one video changed my life! (Click on the picture below)
This is your invitation to join us on the Path to Freedom.
My life has changed, my view of the world and how my life SHOULD be, has changed. Imagine waking up and jumping out of bed on a Monday morning and looking forward to starting your workday. Imagine having a passion for the work you do and loving every minute of it. Imagine creating connections with people from all over the world. Imagine being able to help people and families from all walks of life with your work.
Well, I don’t have to imagine, I live this life every day and that one video above really has changed my life. I love every minute of my work day and I want people to have the same fulfilment as me, so can you see this video changing your life?
Nick and Melissa have created a phenomenal program. It supports you at every stage.
1. From your transition to a low tox life and using the most amazing pure essential oils everyday- called the Path to Wellness.
2. To sharing these essential oils with your nearest and dearest – Path to Share
3. To providing you with mentoring and the method to create your very own business and becoming an entrepreneur without the risk of starting a small business. – Path to Freedom.
I have stepped through all of these programs over the past 3 years (2 years as a customer) and I have learnt a hell of a lot about myself, and my path in life and how I can help others to create their own wellness and abundance.
Below is a little bit about my beautiful friends Nick and Melissa.
Melissa fell in love with essential oils more than six years ago.
The oil popped into her life and became the staple in her self-care routine — lavender in her baths, peppermint for her writing sessions, cinnamon in her morning Bulletproof, orange in her baking, lemon in her cleaning products, and frankincense for skin-care her routine?
But she quickly came to realise something: not all oils are created equal. And this was also the case for me.
Melissa is an author, wellness warrier, number one podcaster and holistic health coach. She is so fastidious about what she puts on and in her body. When she was introduced to doTERRA herself she put on her Sherlock cap and delved deep into researching this company, their extracting methods, where they get the oils from and the quality and purity of them. Luckily doTERRA is so transparent about the quality of the oils that it didn’t take much convincing or delving to find out that they had nothing to hide and they are a beautiful company that prides itself on its purity and quality.
When you smell these beauties for the first time you can tell the difference, they smell exactly the same as the plant itself, it’s actually mind blowing. It was only a matter of time before Melissa began sharing them with friends and family and started to deepen her experience with the oils and products that doTERRA offered.
But then Mama Destiny decided to step in, in the form of her beautiful friend, Tara Bliss.
Tara has a 7-figure business, based on these beautiful oils. They’d never talked about it much — she had her biz thing, I had mine — until one day, after hearing me go on and on about the oils to a friend, her husband Nick turned to her and said:
“Honey, you already know and love these products, and are sharing them with other people…why don’t we chat with Tara and see how you could bring them to your beautiful tribe, so they can experience them too?”
Her mind was blown. I could get paid for something I was already naturally doing? Um, sign me up!
So they chatted to Tara, and she then went on to blow our minds even further:
“Guys, you know you can do more than just share these beautiful oils with your tribe, right? You can share an opportunity with them to change their entire lives and rewrite their future?”
That’s where Path to Freedom comes in…
Path to Freedom is a system that makes starting your doTERRA business as automated, streamlined, and ‘no-brainer-ish’ as possible…. even if you’re sooo not a biz person.
In the process of building her 7-figure per year biz (one which sets up her team to follow in her footsteps) Tara created a vault of powerhouse resources — including manuals, workshops, checklists, templates and more.
They saw these epic tools, and got excited… very excited. Here was a way to reverse engineer one of the most successful (and fastest growing) network marketing businesses on the planet, in a way that would work for ANYONE, whether they had experience or not.
So: they joined forces with Tara to bring us this one-of-a-kind business opportunity — they’ve systematised and digitised all her tools (and a few of thier own faves, from thier own million dollar biz) and plugged them into an easy-to-use system that allows you to plug straight in, duplicate and blaze your own trail.
Essentially, this is a “business in a box”.
They’ve reverse engineered a million dollar business, so you can plug straight into it. And this is what I have done. I have a team of people who are essentially doing the same thing, and they have a team of people who are duplicating the system and creating abundance in their life. Just by sharing these wellness tools, it is so beautiful and fulfilling I just wanted to share it with so many more people.
You’ll have every single thing you need to get your doTERRA business up and running… With none of the guesswork, trial-and-error, or expensive time-wasting that usually goes into building a successful biz.
Here’s a sneak peek of what you’ll get in Path to Freedom:
Planning your doTERRA journey and identifying the people you’d most like to ‘free’
How to set goals that give you goosebumps (and the gangsta scheduling tools that’ll help you reach ‘em)
The best way to start sharing your passion with family and friends (and the rockstar strategy to get them interested and excited)
How to prep for your oil classes — including scoring an invite, the exact scripts to send to potential hosts, minimising no-shows, and how to turn one session into many!
EXACTLY how to lead your own essential oils session(including an hour-long Masterclass on how Tara and I host our classes, the secret weapon that unlocks sales, and how to ‘close’ your class like a goddess)
Delicious recipes (and other oily goodies) for you to share with your tribe — either in person or on social media (we’ve done all the hard work for you!)
Master the art of soulful selling (so you can lovingly inspire your tribe to shift into “Hell yes!” mode)
How to attract and nurture an exception-OIL team (and how to structure it so you can ALL rank advance)
How to build an abundant and stable ‘tree’ within doTERRA, so that you can maximise your compensation. (There is nothing like this training anywhere — Tara has truly nailed it, and we’re SO lucky (worthy) to have her insights.)
All your tricky questions answered — including how to deal with doubters, how to get your partner on board, and how to explain your oily obsession to others 😉
Access to our monthly group Momentum Sessions — where we’ll dissect the strategies and mindset that go into creating a passion fuelled lifestyle biz (this is like having access to a high-end motivational mastermind, for free!) and take action right there and then to build your biz together.

Plus So. Much. More…
It’s the most foolproof, no-brainer, time-freeing system… and because it’s filled with tools and templates directly taken from a 7-figure business, you can rest assured — it WILL work… if you show up fully.
Even better, every single person you recruit to join your doTERRA family will ALSO get access to this training system — as will the people THEY recruit, and THEY recruit, and so on! Path to Freedom truly is the gift that keeps on giving.
(And P.S. You get access to the whole system at no extra cost when you enrol and buy your oils through us, which we’ll show you how to do in a moment… it’s a total no-brainer!)
“But, umm…. I don’t know if network marketing is for me?!”
I had this same fear too, beautiful. But can I let you in on a little secret? You’re already a network marketer. In fact, we all are.
Think back for a moment… That movie you recommended to your mum? And that pair of yoga pants you told your friends about? That’s network marketing in action. And you can bet that your mum and your friends were both so grateful for a recommendation from someone they could trust.
Now imagine if you got paid for making recommendations just like that —- for products you already love and believe in.
That’s all that network marketing is, and when it works? When it’s undertaken with love and integrity? Well, there’s no more powerful business model in the world.
To start a network marketing biz, you need two things: a company you believe in, and a product you love.
I’ve found that in doTERRA, and then some. This is a company with heart, values, integrity, and a passion for changing the world. And these guys freaking walk their talk. Think:
The purest essential oils, harvested straight from the earth, and extracted in such a way to preserve every tiny molecule of plant power.
An unwavering commitment to the farmers and growers who bring us these botanical beauties (many of whom live in developing countries, and whose entire families and communities are supported by their partnership with doTERRA).
A culture of empowerment — everyone, no matter who they are, where they come from, or what their life looks like, can benefit from this extraordinary business model.
And a heartfelt promise to Mother Nature — if something can’t be done sustainably, they don’t do it.
Quite simply, there’s no other opportunity like this on the planet.
The super generous doTERRA model — which you may have heard about before — is already lucrative, and Path To Freedom is the roadmap that amplifies this opportunity.
The true gift, however, is that you’re not just creating freedom for yourself… you’ll be creating it for your loved ones too.
Imagine having a business that allowed your husband to quit his stressful job and stay home with the kids (that’s the plan for me), or that meant your mum never had to worry about money again (This is also my plan – you’re welcome mum). This is the true gift of network marketing — you can set up residual income streams that allow you to “free” the people you love from financial struggle and jobs they no longer enjoy.
Who will you free?
Path to Freedom is PERFECT for you if…
You’re lit up by collaboration, sisterhood/brotherhood, and following your soul’s calling.
You desire freedom, in all areas of your life — your income, your time, your well-being, all of it.
You’re a self-starter. You’re willing to show up, dive deep, and share from your heart.
You’re not afraid to be told ‘no’. (You know it means that you’re one step closer to the next ‘yes’!)
You know that a rising tide lifts all ships — so you love celebrating your sistas and lifting others up.
You love these oils! Or are willing to use them and learn to love them if you are knew to the essential oil game.
I can tell you from experience that this won’t take you long!
dōTERRA offers an industry leading Returns Policy, so if you give the oils a go and decide it’s not for you, simply get in touch with the amazing team at dōTERRA to organise a *full refund or credit (depending on how long it has been since you purchased).\
These amazing gluten-free sausage rolls came from Life Changing Food – by Jo Whitton & Fouad Kassab. This book is so amazing and these sausage rolls are the bomb! If you want to get your hands on this book then go here!
I changed it a little so I will share with you what I did, but just know that the original recipe is in this beautiful book!
Gluten Free Dough
100g Potato Starch
300g Tapioca or Arrowroot
500g sunflower meal
500g starchy potatoes: peeled and cut into 4
2 chia eggs (2 tbsp chia, 4 tbsp filtered water)
2.5 tbsp olive oil
1 tsp salt
1 tbsp maple syrup
Soften potatoes in saucepan and simmer them for 20 – 30 minutes
mix all the flours together and set aside
blend potatoes, eggs, salt and maple syrup in a blender/thermomix

I have found some amazing recipes that suit our wholefood way of eating and some of them really surprise and delight me. This is one of them!!!!
What a fantastic, easy way to reduce the sugar in our children’s diets (whether they are your own, your grandchildren, nieces and nephews etc). These taste amazing and are full of natural ingredients and can be changed so easily to incorporate more nutrients like using kombucha, vitamin C powder, green smoothies etc.
My niece absolutely loves these (as she loves treats) and she wouldn’t even know that there was no added sugar in there (I don’t add the honey and she loves them).
375 ml 100% juice of choice (I use pomegranate, blueberry or cranberry)
40g of Gelatin powder (I use Changing Habits Gelatin Powder)
1 Tbsp honey or maple syrup if needed (I don’t bother and the kids (and adults) still love them)
1. Place all ingredients in a saucepan (or Thermomix)
2. On medium heat, stir the mixture until the gelatin has dissolved (4 min, speed 1, 65 degrees)
3. Pour into moulds and place into the fridge to set & enjoy x
This is one of the best condiment recipes I have seen and it lifts any meal, plus we can use the most amazing essential oils in it (Get yours here).
My husband and I are on a gut healing protocol for the next 6 months. This means, no sugar, gluten, dairy, nuts, seeds, grains and certain vegetables for the next 21 days. Seeds and nuts have been a staple part of our diet for the past 3 years so this one was the challenge.
Hemp hearts are ok though, thank goodness and my beautiful friends Melissa Ambrosini and Hannah have given me this recipe to get me through the next 3 weeks. I had to share it because it is epic.
