Cleaning with Essential Oils

Shop Cleaning with Essential Oils

With Spring just around the corner I thought it would be a good time to share some recipes and tips on cleaning with essential oils.  The EPA has found most homes are 5 to 10 times more toxic than the outside air.  This is mostly due to all the chemical cleaners in our home.  Most essential oils support our immune systems.  They are better for the environment and help you save money too.  Citrus oils are a good start because they are highly antibacterial and antiviral.  Peppermint is one of my favorites to use in cleaning products because it hangs out and gives a bright and uplifting aroma in the home.  Peppermint and vinegar are antiseptic too.

Here are some tried and true natural cleaning recipes that I have used for years.

Natural Cleansing Scrub

  • Good replacement for comet or other abrasive cleaners.  Works great on stoves, ovens, bath tubs, toilets, showers & tile.
  • 1 1/2 C. Baking Soda
  • 7 T. Castille Soap
  • 3 T. Vinegar
  • 70 drops Essential Oil

Natural Carpet Freshener

  • 1 1/2 C. Baking Soda
  • 40-50 drops essential oil
  • Sprinkle on carpet.  Leave for 30 minutes, then vacuum.

Natural All Purpose Cleaning Spray

Put distilled water and white vinegar in the spray bottle then add your essential oil drops.  Shake before each use. Feel free to get creative and make your own cleaning spray with 40 to 45 drops of your favorite essential oils.

Natural Window Cleaner

You can find baking soda in bulk in the pool section at Walmart.  Orange, Lemon, Peppermint and other essential oils can be purchased in our online store.  Our essential oils come in 10ml sizes.  Each bottle has about 200 drops of essential oil.
