Purification is a blend of Citronella, Lavandin, Lemongrass, Myrtle, Rosemary, and Tea Tree. It has a fresh, clean scent with natural compounds of neral, cineol, and geranial that help fight odors. Purification is great for cleaning and purifying the air. It is a powerhouse in the diffuser to keep stinky areas fresh and is a great tool for cleaning around the house.


Purification can be applied directly to the skin and does not require dilution. However, if you have sensitive skin, you may want to dilute to be on the safe side. A great rule of thumb is a 1-4 ratio. 1 drop of oil to 4 drops carrier oil. The most common carrier oils are ,,fractionated coconut oil*, ,,jojoba oil*, ,,almond oil*, ,,argon oil*, ,,grapeseed oil*.

Add 10-30 drops to a 10mL ,,glass roller bottle* and top with carrier oil. Roll on rashes, bug bites, and other areas of skin irritation.

Add 1 drop to your hands and rub together after cutting onions or spicy peppers.


Add 4-6 drops of Purification to your diffuser to help clean the air and eliminate odors. It is great for in the kitchen after cooking, in a laundry room where stinky clothes or gym bags are kept, or in the bathroom. It is also great to diffuser during allergy season and during/after colds.

Add 1-2 drops to the inside of your toilet paper roll to freshen the bathroom.

Add 1-2 drops to a dryer ball or dish towel to replace dryer sheets.

Add 2-3 drops to a cotton ball and put in stinky places or places you wish to freshen the air – under a seat in your car, bottom of the trash can, shoes, air vents, drawers, closets

Add 30 drops to a spray bottle with water and spray on air filters or around the room. (see below for a room spray recipe)
