The arrival of spring brings with it the task of spring cleaning. For those of us who are snowbirds, it means completely cleaning your home before departing, so when you arrive back in the fall, you will have a fresh start. For those of us brave souls who remain through the summer months, it is the time to reduce clutter and do some of those cleaning chores we do on a less-frequent basis, such as cleaning the refrigerator or the oven.
How do you go about it? Do you use cleaning solutions off the shelves of Target or the local grocery store? Do you know that most of these cleaning solutions are highly toxic? While you are cleaning, you are also exposing your skin to these highly-toxic solutions, and you are also inhaling the toxic fumes.
When you make your own Do It Yourself (DIY) home cleaning products with essential oils and other natural ingredients, you can feel good about what goes into your home spaces. Derived from plant botanicals, Essential Oils offer powerful ways to clean your home and refresh your airspace.
One example is Tea Tree Oil (Melaleuca). It is a proven antiseptic, so it can kill germs that linger on surfaces. It can kill bacteria and some viruses, so it is a great oil to add to an all-purpose cleaner for anywhere in the home. You can replace toxic cleaners with natural alternatives without sacrificing quality or paying a higher price.
Of course, we can’t forget ourselves! There are so many ways to use essential oils in personal cleaning products, like natural face wash products and hair-care products.
