Refresh Your Home: Spring Cleaning with Essential Oils

Refresh Your Home: Spring Cleaning with Essential Oils

As the days grow longer and the temperatures rise, it's time to throw open the windows and let the sunshine in. And why not, level up your spring cleaning routine with the power of Essential Oils!

Not only do they leave your home smelling divine, but they are also natural deodorisers, disinfectants and cleansers. 
Here are a few ways you can refresh your home using essential oils this Spring:

Mattress/Carpet Deodoriser

Mix 1/2 to 1 cup of baking soda with 10-15 drops of Lemon or Peppermint essential oil. Stir well, then sprinkle the mixture liberally over the your carpet or mattress. Let it sit for at least 30 minutes to absorb any odours, then vacuum thoroughly.

All Purpose Cleaner

Mix equal parts of distilled water and white vinegar in a spray bottle. Add 10-15 drops of Sweet Orange, Pine or Lavender essential oil in a spray bottle. Shake well before each use and use it to clean countertops, sinks, and other surfaces. 

Bin Refresher

Add 5-10 drops of your favourite essential oil onto a cotton bud or tissue, place at the bottom of your bin before the bin bag to keep your bin smelling fresh. We recommend citrusy scents like Grapefruit, Sweet Orange or Lemon.

Laundry Freshener

Add a few drops of Lavender or Eucalyptus oil to a damp cloth or dryer balls and toss it in the dryer with your laundry to add a fresh scent. Say goodbye to musty towels and hello to laundry day bliss!

Stainless Steel Polish

Mix equal parts of olive oil and Lemon essential oil in a small bowl. Dip a soft cloth into the mixture and use it to polish stainless steel appliances and sinks, buffing in circular motions until shiny and streak-free.

Scented Sachets

Mix dried lavender buds, dried rose petals, and cedarwood chips in a bowl. Add a few drops each of Lavender and Cedarwood essential oils and mix well. Place the mixture in small sachets or cloth bags and hang them in drawers or place them in your wardrobes to keep your clothes smelling fresh and repel moths.

This spring, embrace the power of essential oils to enhance your cleaning routine and refresh your home from top to bottom. Whether you're scrubbing, dusting, or decluttering, adding essential oils into your spring clean routine is a simple and effective way to create a healthier, happier living environment for you and your family.

So go ahead – open those windows, let the sunshine in, and get cleaning!
