Essential Oils for Cleaning

We all love to have a clean home, that feels warm and inviting, especially when we are expecting guests over! I love making my own products to keep my home sparkling clean, and aromatic to boot!

I think my favorite part about the whole DIY with essential oils, is that I know exactly what ingredients are in my products, and I'm not afraid to get them on my skin if I make an oopsie. With so many "green" options out there, sometimes labeling can be misleading, and also offer a variety of ingredients that you don't actually need to be putting on your countertops, it's comforting to know that I am minimizing the toxic load in our living environment on a daily basis. I am sure this is something you would like to cultivate in your living space as well. SO... with that, I will share a few of my favorite recipes with you!

A quick and easy fix is to throw a couple drops each of Lemon and Rosemary into your diffuser, 10-15 minutes before you expect company. If you are in a pinch and someone is showing up in 5 minutes, add the oils to your diffuser. It will still give of the aroma, it just won't cover the entire space before they arrive. For an even shorter time crunch, plug the diffuser into an outlet that is closest to your front door entry so it is the first thing they smell when they enter your home.

A super cool ingredient that I have recently added to my all purpose spray, is actually a PB Assist+ capsule. Yes! A probiotic! I have been doing some reading about cleaning with probiotics and I figured I would give it a go, with the best probiotic I know about! PB Assist+ is a proprietary formula of pre-biotic fiber and six strains of probiotic microorganisms in a unique double-layer vegetable capsule. It delivers 6 billion CFUs of active probiotic cultures and soluble pre-biotic FOS (fructo-oligosaccharides) that encourage friendly bacterial growth*.

When you aren't adding this amazing ingredient to your all purpose spray, here are the benefits of internal consumption of PB Assist:

PB Assist

  • Promotes a positive balance and proliferation of beneficial bacteria*

  • Maintains healthy intestinal microflora balance*

  • Supports healthy functioning of the digestive and immune systems*

  • Supports the health of the GI tract, particularly the intestines and colon*

  • Helps support optimal metabolism and absorption of food*
