How to clean stainless steel with this essential oil paste

Why I used the Isagenix Defensesheild essential oil, I choose this oil for the blend of single essential oils have that been mixed together to create this powerful immune boosting blend.  The original intent for this essential oil is it is to be taken internally to support immune health but with the blend of Lemon oil, Eucalyptus oil, Frankincense oil, Rosemary oil, Clove oil, Cinnamon bark oil, I figure its a good germ buster for all those little toddler hands that are touching my fridge and dishwasher.
