If you’re really going to start using essential oils as a cleaning product, then I would highly suggest buying in bulk. Essential oils can get pretty expensive if you are just buying one vial at a time! To ensure that you’re getting the best deal, you can by buying large quantities!
While you can use essential oils to clean the house, you can also use them to clean your kids’ immune systems! Just add 1-2 drops of lavender with a bit of coconut oil and then rub the mixture on your child’s feet. This helps promote health in your children!
When you start using essential oils around your home, make sure to pay attention to any allergic reactions or other problems. Humans and pets especially can get irritated by essential oils, so make sure you’re aware when you introduce a new essential oil to your home.
Although essential oils are all natural, they can still be dangerous to ingest. Don’t just keep them out on the counter or in the open. Essential oils should be stored just as safely and securely as other cleaning products.
Something I love to do with essential oils is to freshen my home with them. Just choose your favorite essential oil, add a few drops to a spray bottle of purified water, and then spritz it around your home!
Clean your home and your body with essential oils! You can make certain mixtures with essential oils to deal with rough skin, acne, exhaustion, etc. Find some great options online and then go for it!
To give your clothes a boost of fresh scent, try this! Get wool dryer balls and before putting them in the dryer, add a few drops of your favorite essential oil to them. When you pull the clothes out, they’ll smell great!
For a pretty basic all-purpose cleaner, mixture together 10 drops of Thieves (Thieves is a blend exclusive to Young Living) essential oil (or any citrus essential oil that you like) with 8 ounces of hydrogen peroxide. You can use this mixture to clean counters, toilets, sinks, etc.
Kill two birds with one stone by adding 1 to 2 drops of lemon or another essential oil to your vacuum bag. As you vacuum your home, it will kick out scented air to make your home smell great!
If you have pets, then consider mixing some lavender or chamomile essential oils to unscented animal shampoo. Not only does this make your pet smell great, but it can also make it healthier and have better skin and fur. Just make sure you test the essential oil out so you know your pet isn’t allergic or bothered by it.
