I’ve compiled 4 amazing essential oils for your home cleaning pleasure. Why use stinky toxic products when you can enjoy the benefits of essential oil aromatherapy while sanitizing your home the natural way?
Home Clean Home
How to use: Use a spray bottle and add half distilled water and half white vinegar in a 16 oz spray bottle. Add a vile of Home Clean Home to the mixture and shake well. Use on countertops, floors, sinks, bathrooms and other hard surfaces. Always test a small area of the surface prior to cleaning. Enjoy the benefits of cleaning your home with therapeutic grade essential oils. You can also get creative and place reusable paper towel sheets in a Tupperware container, add the water, vinegar and essential oils and then use the towels as needed as hand wipes or keep handy in the kitchen to clean up spills. Keep out of reach of children.
Why clean with lovely lavender?
Lavender is more than just a delightful, summery scent. The essential oil of this fragrant plant has disinfectant properties, and its cleaning powers have long been known. Even before the antimicrobial properties of lavender were discovered, it was used for cleaning purposes. The word lavender itself comes from lavare, meaning “to wash.”
Relax with Lavender…
Cleaning with lavender oil might not sound very relaxing. But there is peace of mind in putting one’s home in order, and the scent of lavender can help ease your mind even further. Aromatherapists recommend lavender (Lavandula angustifolia) for its soothing properties. Plus, the oil is antispasmodic, and can help your muscles relax.
Tea Tree Oil packs a punch for Cleaning germs:
Another fantastic way to use tea tree oil is as a household cleaner. Tea tree oil have powerful antimicrobial properties and can kill off bad bacteria in your home: Use it on your counter tops, kitchen appliances, shower, toilet and sinks. This essential oil is incredibly anti-bacterial and anti-fungal, and it has disinfectant, antiseptic and anti-microbial properties. It really keeps those germs at bay.
Lemongrass wows us:
Like the oils I've already mentioned, lemongrass is anti-bacterial but it's more well-known for being highly anti-fungal (it's often used as a natural treatment for candida, a fungus that clings on for dear life). This means that lemongrass is one of the best essential oils to clean your home with if you've got a lot of fungus and mold. Mold tends to grow in damp spots, like the kitchen, bathroom, windows and in the basement. Lemongrass smells awesome and may help reduce anxiety levels too, so that's one more reason to use it.
Rosemary oh sweet Rosemary:
Rosemary essential oil has amazing properties that clean, clear and heal your mind and body. This oil is distilled from the herb rosemary, which has been used medicinally for thousands of years. Ancient Egyptians, Greeks, Hebrews and Romans loved it so much that they considered it a sacred herb.
Rosemary’s natural antibacterial and antiseptic properties make it a great addition to your home cleaning oil arsenal.
It also freshens up your home with a beautiful clean herbal scent. Can be used on countertops and more thanks to its antibacterial, antifungal, antiseptic and antiviral properties.
