As a parent, you want the best for your kids. That includes making sure that your home is free of products that might harm your children. For me, I was especially concerned about the cleaning products I was using. I just didn’t want the harsh chemicals in these products to have any negative effects for my children.
So, I started investigating natural alternatives to the chemical cleaning products that I was using. I quickly discovered that lemon essential oil was going to be the perfect replacement for my most of my cleaning products. Here’s why:
Lemon essential oil is antiseptic, anti fungal, and antiviral, plus, it has a fresh, clean scent that is so invigorating.
Here’s how I use lemon essential oil as an all purpose cleaner:
I like to fill a spray bottle with water and then simply add 2 tablespoons of castile soap and 10-20 drops of lemon essential oil. If you don’t have any castile soap, you can add 1 part water and 1 part vinegar as your base – and then add your 10-20 drops of lemon essential oil. Both recipes are great all-purpose cleaners.
Oh, and one other tip – Try adding a few drops of lemon essential oil to freshen up your next load of laundry with a great citrus smell.
