The Best Essential Oils for Spring Cleaning
It’s that time of year again! The frost is thawing, the bees are buzzing, and the flowers are blooming. Spring is a time of renewal and regeneration, so it only makes sense to follow nature’s example and rejuvenate your home using all-natural, 100% pure essential oils!
Traditional household cleaners can contain ingredients that are harmful to your health, so to keep your home safe, we recommend incorporating these essential oils into your Spring Cleaning repertoire.
- Cleaning synergy blend: Add some extra sparkle to your home while eliminating dangerous and toxic chemicals by mixing Cleaning into your chore routine. Cleaning is a holistic blend of Lavender, Lemongrass, Rosemary and Tea Tree. Try our DIY Cleaning Spray using this blend.
Home Aroma Set: Our homes are our sanctuaries, a place where we can kick back and find some peace. Allow the Home Aroma set to give you a hand in the R&R department. Stocked with essential oils that uplift, calm and invigorate your mind, body, and spirit, this set is a reminder that there’s no place like home.
Lemongrass essential oil: Here at Edens Garden, we refer to Lemongrass as the tidy essential oil. With antimicrobial and antifungal properties, this oil is the perfect answer to eradicating all those unseeable intruders. To freshen up your fridge with this earthy citrus aroma, combine 5-10 drops of Lemongrass with a small bowl of distilled water and 1 tsp of grain alcohol and wipe down the surfaces of your fridge and freezer.
Lemon Myrtle essential oil: Who knew there were so many variations of Lemon? Although not a member of the Lemon family, Lemon Myrtle has a fresh, lemony scent with the added bonus of powerful antibacterial constituents. Pair with Pine essential oil for extra effectiveness in an all-purpose & disinfecting cleaning spray. Combine ½ cup of Witch Hazel, ½ cup of Vinegar, 10 drops Lemon Myrtle, and 10 drops Pine in an 8 oz spray bottle and shake before using on bathroom surfaces, kitchen counters, and glass surfaces. Avoid use on granite countertops. Use within the month.
- Purify synergy blend: With a citrusy and slightly minty aroma, Purify is an all-natural disinfectant and neutralizer. Once you’ve degreased, dusted, scrubbed, and swept, use the Purify blend to naturally deodorize your home with our Carpet Refresher Video DIY. You can also add a few drops to your Terrazzo Stone Diffuser to fill your home with the fresh aroma of this synergy blend.
