March is time for Spring Cleaning and our new essential oil blend Clean No. 5. Tangerine, Lemon and Peppermint essential oils are all great for cleaning. Tangerine and Lemon are high in limonene which is anti-bacterial and antiviral. Limonene also is a great immune supporter. Peppermint is antiseptic and hangs out in the home leaving a bright energizing aroma. Diffuse in the home with an essential oil diffuser, add a couple drops to the inside of your toilet paper rolls in the bathroom or create your own cleaning products with the following recipes.
