“Put Some Sring in Your Cleaning Step”

Share with your friends!


It has been a really cold, dark, and dreary winter! Even though it is springtime, the cold weather is probably not finished with most of us. I find it so hard to get in the mood to clean on days like these. All I really want to do is snuggle under a warm, soft blanket with a cup of hot tea and read all the books on my Kindle.
But recently I found something wonderful that has made me want to clean. Was it magic? No!
It was essential oils!!
I use essential oils in my homemade cleaners, but I discovered an extra benefit by accident. Instead of just using them to clean, I have started using them to lift my mood and make me excited to clean. The oils I was using put a spring in my step! Essential oils make me feel good!

My favorite essential oils that get me in a peppy cleaning mood:

  • Peppermint
  • Lemon: I love to mix this with Peppermint.
  • Rosemary: This is the newest oil I have found. It smells like Spring! It works great when mixed with lemon.

There are several ways that I have found to disperse essential oils throughout your home.

Put a few drops along with distilled water into a spray bottle.

  • Spray the air.
  • Spray the furniture.
  • Spray yourself.

Put a few drops along with olive oil in a wax burner. Plug in the wax burner as normal.

Put a few drops with distilled water in a diffuser.
Put a few drops with water and simmer on the stove.
Put a few drops in the washer when washing a load of clothes.
Put a few drops on a cloth or wool dryer ball and place in the dryer when drying your clothes.
You can find oils online and at health food stores. I have yet to find a brand of essential oils that I did not like.
