Purify Cleansing Blend

doTerra's Purify Cleansing Blend is a natural and nontoxic odor eliminator, surface sanitizer, and insect repellent.  But it's benefits range beyond cleaning and refreshing!

Essential Oils in Purify

lemon, lime, pine, citronella, melaleuca, and cilantro


Aromatic and Topical.  It can be used Neat (undiluted) if you don't have sensitive skin. Adults would use 2-4 drops, children 1-2.

Safety & Purify

It is always advised that you apply an EO to your foot, dilute it, or do a patch test to check for sensitivity the first time applying it to your skin. Some advise that no EO's be used neat, and adults should use a 3-5% dilution, children 1-3%. Click here for dilution how-to's.
Be warned that citrus essential oils can increase the risk of sunburn or rash when applied to the skin before going outdoors. This effect may last 2 days for some!

Some of the Many Uses of Purify

  • A natural alternative to fabric and air fresheners.  Add a few drops to a glass spray bottle and mist the air and surfaces.
  • Vent deodorizer.  Place a few drops on your house or RV A/C filter to clear out musty smells. May need to repeat a couple times a day for stubborn odors.
  • Laundry sanitizer and deodorizer. Add 4-6 drops to your wash load.
  • Fly and ant repellent. Mist around doorways and picnic areas, or place a few drops on a cotton ball or paper towel and set on the tabletop. Clean the picnic table before eating to sanitize while univiting nature's guests!
  • Car freshener. Put a couple drops on a cotton ball and place between the vent slats if you don't have a car diffuser. Spray on seats, car seats, and mats. Wipe down steering wheel, door handles, seat belt latches, and car seat parts to sanitize during flu season.
  • Do an online search for "home made gel air fresheners."  I recommend using a Mason jar to make it last longer. You can punch holes in the lid or open and close as needed.
  • Sanitize lunch boxes in a natural, non-toxic way.
  • Dish washer sanitizer.  Place a few drops in the bottom at the start of a load.
  • Make your own natural insect repellent strings.
  • Apply directly to zits or cold sores (not inside the mouth).
  • Spray onto feet and in shoes to wipe out Stinky Feet Syndrome.
  • Diffuse intensely to sanitize air and surfaces in sick rooms.
  • Diffuse or apply topically to strengthen immunity and combat exposure to illness.
  • Tick extractor! Place a drop or two on the tick, and it will back out.
  • Bug bite and sting treatment. Place a drop on the sting and also apply to the skin between the sting or bite and the heart.
  • Clean scratches and scrapes.
