  • Toning helps to balance your skin’s PH level.
  • Toning also helps to close the pores and allow your moisturizer to soak into the skin more efficiently.

I NEVER used to use toners, but as my skin ages, I found out that I love using a toner to rid of the dry and tired looking skin. My skin always looks more fresh and evenly toned for the day.

Simple and Natural Recipes: Freshen Air, Carpet, Shoes, and More

If you live in a place where you wear wool socks all winter long, like Southwest Michigan or anywhere in the north, this one is for you.

If you work out and have the case of stinky foot or gym bag, this is also for you.

If you have stinky garbage containers, laundry hampers, basements, carpets, cars, or puppies, this is for you.

Purification essential oil is the ultimate weapon against bad odors. It is a blend of Citronella, Rosemary, Lemongrass, Tea Tree, Lavendin, and Myrtle essential oils.

Most times I just add a drop or two or Purification to a cotton ball and throw it in the specific location, like in the garbage bin or gym bag.

This is like instant de-stink for him and a total lifesaver if we don’t have time to give him a bath or a swim.

I’m sharing these tips with you today because it’s the middle of winter and I personally have a lot to deodorize and clean now that the holidays are over.
