Natural Cleaning Tips Worth Trying!

As the weather starts to get warmer, do you get the urge to partake in a little spring cleaning? Surely it's not just me! As soon as the sun comes out to play after a long winter, there's just something inside of us that craves a fresh start.

If that sounds like you too, remember that essential oils are your cleaning friends and something to feel great about using!

There's no need to overload your home with harsh chemicals and toxic store-bought cleaning supplies. There are countless natural solutions right at your fingertips and I'm happy to have this opportunity to share some with you. 

Please don't hesitate to reach out if you have any questions about essential oils or anything I've shared below. It's always a pleasure hearing from my readers!

Now, let's check out some of those  DIYs and get to work! 

 

Elbow Grease or Essential Oils?

You don't have to clean harder when you can clean smarter!

Please keep in mind that essential oils are incredibly potent, which means many will dissolve plastic. For this reason, I recommend keeping DIYs with your oils in glass bottles or PET plastic for safekeeping. 

 

LEMON  

Lemon is a classic for banishing sticky residue and unwanted odors. Stickers, greasy residue, old glue, stubborn grime, and so much more... Lemon will get the job done!

Lemon oil will also help keep wood from drying out while restoring its depth of grain and natural beauty. 

Natural Wood Polish:

Mix about 1 tbsp of olive oil and 5-6 drops of lemon oil. Wipe the wooden surface clean, then with a new clean cloth apply a moderate amount of the oil mixture. Going with the grain, rub the mixture into the wood until absorbed.

 

 
 
 

PINE

This essential oil just smells so good!

Mix 1 cup of water, ¼ cup of white vinegar (you won't smell it, I promise), and about 10 drops of Pine Essential Oil in a glass spray bottle. Add some Lemon or Tea Tree for a boost. Secure the lid, shake it up and use it on household surfaces as needed.

Mold loves humid areas like front load washers, window sills, and showers. Spray this DIY cleaner in those areas often to prevent mold from forming! It's also ideal for countertops, glass, and mirrors. Spray and wipe dry with a towel for a streak-free shine. I love these for polishing faucets, windows, and mirrors. 

THIEVES 

You can diffuse this blend to create a healthy home, but did you know Thieves Blend + water + vinegar is great to clean nearly any surface? This is one of my favorite go-to's for cleaning floors, doors, and more. If you have pets or crawling young ones, this is the best option for a quick and natural solution anytime there's a spill or smudge. Thieves Essential Oil Blend is actually so iconic, there's an entire Thieves Line available from Young Living. Whatever you need to clean, they have something to offer!

 

 
 
 
 

PURIFICATION

This powerhouse blend was formulated for diffusing and is aimed to neutralize and cleanse the air in your home and work environment.

Lingering odors from cooking, stinky gym shoes, a musty basement, or the baby's diaper pale are no challenge for Purification - that's a tried and true fact. I have even put a few drops in the dishwasher before running a rinse cycle. It gives the whole kitchen that "freshly cleaned" smell.

Rosemary

 

Try a DIY room spray by filling a glass spray bottle halfway with distilled water, the other half with all-natural witch hazel, and about 15-30 drops of your favorite essential oils. A combination of Rosemary and Tangerine creates an uplifting, herbal aroma that charms all the spaces in your home year-round.

It's versatile enough for a linen spray, shared workspace, the classroom, or as a neutral personal fragrance when you need to freshen up. Cedarwood or Geranium can make this smell more masculine or feminine, as desired.
