How to Use Essential Oils in Your Home for Spring Cleaning
Spring is the perfect time to spring clean your home. The air starts smelling fresher, the daylight hours are longer, and there's a desire to do some deep cleaning. And while you're at it, don't forget to use essential oils for a more pleasant experience.
There are many ways to use essential oils for spring cleaning - from diffusing them in the air to adding them to your laundry detergent. Listed below are just a few of the essential oils that you can using for cleaning and your home smelling fresh at the same time.
LEMONGRASS- Diffuse the scent of lemongrass by putting a few drops into an oil diffuser, or add it to your laundry detergent.
TEA TREE - It is a great natural cleaner around the house. To start, you should combine 50% tea tree oil with 50% water in a spray bottle and shake well. This is the same as using diluted rubbing alcohol to clean your countertops or disinfect your surfaces. You can also mix tea tree oil with baking soda to make an all-natural scrub that will clean tough stains off of your floor or bathroom tile.
PEPPERMINT - Peppermint oil for spring cleaning has proven to be very effective in many ways. Not only does it smell good and make your home smell like a spa, but it is also very efficient when it comes to getting rid of bacteria and other microorganisms. For example, peppermint is a natural decongestant and has antimicrobial properties (due to its high menthol content).
LEMON - Lemon oil can be used for a variety of purposes in the home. One use is to clean and disinfect surfaces in homes. The lemon oil creates an antimicrobial effect when used on surfaces such as countertops, tables, and cutting boards. For those who are sensitive to stronger scents, lemon essential oil is a great choice - it leaves behind a light aroma that can be refreshing in the morning or evening.
LAVENDER - Lavender is a gentle and kind cleaner, so it can be used on all surfaces and materials and does not leave behind any harmful residual chemicals. It’s also a natural disinfectant that helps remove bacteria from dirty surfaces without using harsh chemicals that may damage your household items or irritate sensitive skin. One of the things that makes lavender oil a great product is that it can be used for a variety of purposes. Not only does it have the ability to reduce odors, but it also has a number of other functions such as cleaning surfaces, clothes, and dishes.
