5 Ways To Use Essential Oils In Your Spring Cleaning!

Good morning and Happy May!  👋🏾👋🏾👋🏾

☀️ I hope this blog finds you healthy and blooming where you are planted.  Many of us are, by now, well into spring.  The weather is changing but may not be hot yet, where you are.  If you are anything like me, you enjoy having your windows open but with that lovely, gentle breeze comes dust and pollen.  Here are 5 ways to naturally freshen your home.

1️⃣  Citrus disinfectant.  🍊 This recipe is easy to make and for the most part, uses ingredients you likely have at home.  You'll need:

An airtight glass jar, lemons, oranges, white vinegar, cloves and fresh herbs.  Later you will need a cheesecloth, water and a spray bottle.

Fill your jar about 3/4 with lemon, orange peels, cloves and herbs.  Fill with vinegar and allow to sit for two weeks.  After two weeks, strain the liquid and store in an airtight container.  To use, dilute 1/1 with water and use in place of bleach as a disinfectant spray, in your laundry or dishwater.  🧺

2️⃣  Linen spray.  🍋 You’ll need a fine mist spray bottle, 1/4 cup rubbing alcohol, 1/3 cup distilled water, 1 tsp lavender essential oil, 1 tsp lemon essential oil.  Combine all ingredients in the spray bottle.  Shake before using and spray onto clean sheets.

3️⃣  Freshen your mop water.  🌲 This one is easy.  Lemon, pine and tea tree all serve as amazing disinfectants.  Add any of these to your mop water to clean your floors, freshen your mop as well as make your home smell amazing!

4️⃣  Air freshener.  🏡 Put a few drops of essential oil on clothespins.  Clip the clothespins to the underside of your vents.  When heating and cooling your home, the air will flow over the pins leaving your home smelling great!

5️⃣  No more smelly shoes.  👟 Are smelly shoe and boot odors taking over your closet?  Add a few drops of lemon, lemongrass, tea tree or pine to two cotton balls.  Add one to each shoe/boot and leave in over night.  Your closet will be thankful by morning!
