Green Cleaning

My daughter and her friend shared with me this past week that they used to love to come and help clean my house. Who says that?! Both mentioned that the products we use made them happy and they didn’t want to stop cleaning! I guess, honestly, I almost feel that way when I am using them, too!

My new favorite all-purpose cleaner goes in my refillable 16 oz spray bottle. I start with 1 tablespoon vinegar, fill the bottle almost to the top with water, then add 30 drops each of White Pine, Eucalyptus Globulus and Orange essential oils. It is economical, easy and smells great! White Pine smells like you are walking in the woods on a crisp, beautiful day. Eucalyptus Globulus smells clean and fresh. Orange smells sunny and joyful!

The combination of these three will knock out any nasty fungus, bacteria, or virus that is lurking on your surfaces. And, unlike most cleaners you buy at the store that give you a headache, queasy stomach or make you feel a bit dizzy—you could be healthier after using this spray. Just smelling these essential oils will give you great digestive, respiratory and immune support. It’s exactly what we need this time of year!

So, I guess it’s time to make my daughter and her friend some cleaning products. If you would like to make your own set of cleaning products and learn natural ways to clean your house from top to bottom, register for my green cleaning class on March, 29th.
