I got a little bit excited about creating recipes to clean with essential oils yesterday. My son Peter started helping me clean the stair treads, and wow! That was a lot of dirt on one rag.
I might have gone just a little bit overboard, posting two cleaning recipes in one day! That got me thinking – maybe you’d like to see lots of different essential oil cleaning recipes to use in your home. I’ve gathered a fabulous list of recipes and most of these come with video instructions! But first, lets talk about why using essential oils to clean your home is so powerful!
Cleaning with Essential Oils is All-Natural
Essential Oils are created by extracting the oils from God-made plants into a concentrated form. They come directly from nature, and when you order from a solid company like Rocky Mountain Oils, they have no additives or preservatives or stabilizers. It’s just pure oil.
Cleaning with Essential Oils Boosts Standard Cleaning Agents
When you mix up a cleaning recipe like our Orange Oil Wood Cleaner, your normal cleaning solution is boosted with the added antibacterial properties of the Orange Essential Oil. Your cleaners will go the extra mile!
Cleaning with Essential Oils Provides Aromatherapy
When you add essential oils to your basic household cleaning recipes, the oils do double duty! Not only are they adding cleaning power to your efforts because of naturally antiseptic, antifungal, antibacterial, and antiviral properties, they are also meeting your aromatherapy needs! Your home will smell lovely, and the effects of whatever oil you are using will be spread throughout your home. No more strong-smelling cleaners ruining the atmosphere of your home either!
Cleaning with Essential Oils is Going Green
Essential Oils are all natural and biodegradable because they come directly from plants. Add essential oils to other natural cleaning agents like vinegar, and you have a win/win synthetic free cleaning solution. No nasty chemicals touching your skin or inhaled into your lungs – and no nasty effects on the environment either!
Cleaning with Essential Oils is FUN!
I was surprised at how fulfilling it was to hand-mix my own cleaners and clean my home. It added an element of fun to cleaning the stair treads and bathroom floor that I simply was not expecting. My kids even got in on the action! Cleaning your home can be drudgery enough without adding heavy chemicals and strong smells. Make it fun when you mix up your own supplies!
