Cleaning With Essential Oils

Home / Essential Oils / Cleaning With Essential Oils

Have you ever walked down the aisle in your local store where the cleaning products are and feel overwhelmed by the smells?  We rarely have to shop down that aisle anymore,  but if we do we head straight to what we need and move on! Once you start using natural products you will begin to see the difference.

Awhile ago we hired someone to come and clean our home.  We had been using cleaners made with essential oils and natural ingredients for some time and as she began cleaning with some of the store-bought products she had, we started to get headaches. Our family could tell right away something was different, so Wade opened the windows to air out our home and rid it of the chemicals. Never again! It's all natural for our home and family.

Cleaning with essential oils is so easy and will save you so much money. Think of what you can buy with all the money you'll save!  You will also feel better about not using harsh chemicals and your home will be safe for all ~ including babies, children and pets! The recipes below only take minutes to make and use pretty basic ingredients. Below are some of the recipes we use in our home. It feels good knowing we are not hurting the environment or our bodies.
