Congratulations! You have survived another day… kids, traffic, grocery store, post office, dry cleaners, and the office. You walk in the door, breathe in the lavender and citrus as a wave of peace encompasses you. How smart of you to have set the alarm early to clean before the challenge of the day began. Oh yes, home sweet home.
It sure feels great to come home to everything sparkling and shiny. The smell of clean is simply amazing. You feel it all the way to the center of your soul. The joy you are experiencing spreads out to the entire family. Like the old saying goes, “When Mama’s happy, everyone is happy”!
Yes a clean house is great but what about all the harmful chemicals in the “scented” products available at every grocery, drug, and dollar store. Concerned that you are exposing your family and pets to toxins that may result in illness and disease? Wishing for a way to get the dirt out and sanitize your home safely and fill the air with a great smell naturally? Your wish is Mother Nature’s command.
Essentials oils are derived naturally from plants and have powerful disinfectant properties. How wonderful that something natural can be anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, anti-viral, antiseptic, and deodorize while filling the air with a pleasant aroma!
Citrus oils such as Lemon, Orange, and Grapefruit are refreshing, uplifting, and are great for eliminating grease and grime. Tea Tree Oil and Eucalyptus both have superb disinfecting powers. Lavender is a bacteria buster in addition to adding a calming feeling as you clean.
Castile soap, baking soda, vinegar, and distilled water along with essential oils are all you need to make astounding all purpose cleaners, tub and tile scrubs, air fresheners, and carpet deodorizers.
