Spring Cleaning with Essential OilsEssential Oil Spring Cleaning Recipes to revitalize your home!
Cleaning can be nourishing and fun when you make your own natural cleaning recipes. Spring is a great time to do that. It’s associated with new beginnings, and cleaning helps us embrace beginnings with a fresh, open mindset. 

Here are some Aromatherapy spring cleaning recipes that can help. I recommend making these products fresh every few weeks.

Toilet Freshener
After you clean your toilet, you can use this spray to keep it smelling fresh and reduce germ growth. You can just keep your little bottle of spray on the back of your toilet, or on the bathroom sink, and spritz it in the toilet bowl after every flush.

Cleaning Your Floors with Essential Oils
Many of the common household cleaners that we use are not only extremely toxic and carcinogenic to us, but they are taking a toll on the environment as well. Is all these cleaning products really necessary anyway?

We have become so scared of germs and bacteria that we are leered in to using products labeled “kills 99.9% of bacteria” and “kills germs on target.” When I see products like this it always causes me to think about how this world must have been before commercial cleaning products and if germs was such a big deal back-in-the-day.

When it comes to cleaning your floors, you don’t need expensive products to do the job. Essential oils are great at cleaning up the dirt while leaving a refreshing, clean aroma in the air. Cleaning your floors with essential oils is completely safe, non-toxic, frugal, and easy!
