SPRING CLEANING
We get asked all the time for natural household cleaning recipes that utilise the anti-bacterial and cleansing properties of essential oils. 
Here are some simple Spring Cleaning recipes:

ROOM FRESHENER
Cleanse and freshen the air naturally by blending 6 drops of essential oil with 6 drops of essential oil dispersant into 100ml water.  Add to a bottle with a spray top or mist dispenser. Shake before every use. Choose from the following blends:

Citrus Fresh: Combine 3 drops Lemongrass and 3 drops Lemon Tea Tree for an enlivening citrus blast.
Calm & Clear: Combine 2 drops each of Lavender, Lemon and Peppermint for a fresh, uplifting aroma.
Cleanse the Room: Combine 2 drops each of May Chang, Lime and Sage for a deeply cleansing aroma.

SURFACE CLEANSING SPRAY
Add 5 drops Eucalyptus and 5 drops Lemon oil or 10 drops of Lemon Eucalyptus into 500ml of water and add 4 tablespoons of white vinegar. Shake well before use.

FLOOR CLEANER
Add 6-10 drops of essential oil to a bucket of hot water and add a squirt of an environmentally friendly floor cleanser or ¼ cup castile soap.  Choose from Tea/Tree Lavender, Lemon Eucalyptus or Lemon Tea Tree.
Make sure you label all cleaning products and keep out of reach of children. For precious surfaces, we suggest you do a patch test first before applying the surface spray or floor cleaner.
