If you’ve been around for the last few months you have probably noticed that I’ve been a little bit excited about using essential oils. When we first started using them I was amazed at how well they worked for us. I started using them for more things and I am continually surprised at the new uses we discover.
Now I’m adding something new to my list. Cleaning with essential oils – homemade cleaning products that utilize the powerful properties found in essential oils.
Now I can do my spring cleaning with essential oils!
Cleaning with Essential Oils – 15 Recipes
I’ve tried to limit the use of harsh cleaners in our home since TJ was small. At one point I made our laundry detergent (washing soda, bar soap, etc.). We use vinegar for many things (it makes a great fabric softener replacement). But I’m still on the lookout for a great all-purpose cleaner. I can only take so much of that strong vinegar smell!
So I’m on a quest to find some great ideas for cleaning with essential oils.
