Spring Cleaning with Essential Oils: 3 Easy DIY Recipes

While essential oils seem to be all the rage right now, its for good reason! As more information comes about about the possible repercussions of the toxic and potentially dangerous products that we all pass in the cleaning aisle at the grocery store, the more empowered we are to make changes that are cleaner, more natural, and healthier for our families. Many people have made the change and ditched their conventional household products, and some people have simply invested in essential oils, but don’t know what the heck to do with them or where to start. Here are 3 simple, eco-friendly recipes that harness the natural properties of essential oils to disinfect
and uplift, for a cleaner home and happier family!

  1. All-Purpose Disinfectant Spray
    Fill a 16 oz. glass spray bottle until almost full with vodka or rubbing alcohol. Both vodka and rubbing alcohol are natural disinfectants, so this cleaner is perfect for germ-y countertops, highchairs, bathrooms, the list goes on!
    Add 15 drops of each:
    Lemon
    Lavender
    Tea Tree
    Eucalyptus
    This combo not only smells divine, but is antimicrobial, helps eliminiate odors, and mights mold and mildew.
  2. Natural Toilet Cleaner
    In a squeeze bottle (if you have one), combine:
    1/2 cup baking soda
    1/3 cup liquid dishwashing soap
    1/4 cup hydrogen peroxide
    30 drops eucalyptus essential oil
    3/4 cup water
    You can also use a glass mason jar if you don’t have a squeeze bottle on hand!
  3. DIY Goo Remover (Goo Gone)
    In a small bowl or mason jar, combine:
    1/2 cup baking soda
    1/2 coconut oil
    6-10 drops of lemon essential oil
    Mix into a paste and apply to residue. Let sit for 15 minutes, then rinse with warm water. This works great if you upcycle glass jars to hold food or cleaning products. It gets the sticker/label residue off in one easy step!
