Cleaning Benefits of Essential Oils

I am in love with the cleaning benefits of essential oils. Essential Oils not only smell great they also offer natural healing, anti-fungal and antibacterial properties.  They are an investment however a little goes a long way.  In fact, when you break down the price by use, they actually cost only pennies.  They are a less expensive and all-natural way to clean and by removing the toxins and chemicals from your home everyone will benefit. They are also non-toxic and chemical free ways to clean your home.

Cleaning Benefits of Essential Oils:

Grapefruit Oil:  Is an antibacterial disinfectant on its own.  When paired with vinegar it forms a powerful all-purpose spray.

Lavender Oil:  A well known insect repellent.  It is also known to help with skin conditions. It is also aids in relaxation and with sleeping.  It is nice addition to laundry also.

Lemon Oil:  It conditions wood and help shine.  It also kills bacteria and is a mild astringent.  An addition of a few drops to furniture and soap recipes is a great addition.

Tee Tree Oil:  Is a powerful fungicide.  It also helps kill and remove mold and mildew.

Thyme Oil:  Is an antiseptic.  It is a nice addition to kitchen and bathroom cleansers.

  1. I love essential oils, my MIL jumped on their bandwagon awhile ago and started selling them, which means I acquired a huge stockpile of the bottles. My favorite scent is the Eucalyptus for as an air freshener. I would fill up a squirt bottle with water and add drops of the oil and spray the rooms, it is especially good during the winter time with all the dryness and the smell helps open your sinuses. I use hydrogen peroxide to clean my bathrooms with and them wipe it down with the lemon oil. I think I have the healthiest house on the block! 🙂

  2. I didn’t know that lavender was an insect repellent! That is so cool! Thanks for the tip! I will have to look into getting some essential oils for cleaning, like you suggested!
