Clean homes using standard cleaners is really an oxymoron.  Take a look at this video and you’ll see why.  It’s frightening, really.

So what can we do to ensure that our homes are really clean AND not adding additional toxins?

Use non-toxic cleaners with essential oils.

We’ve been in the process of “ditch and switch” for awhile now. 

You are already buying cleaners, so why not buy cleaners that are non-toxic? Due to the high potency of essential oils, you will most likely SAVE money when buying essential oils for cleaning.

Why Are Essential Oils Good for Cleaning?

Aside from their beautiful scents, many types of plant essences are well-known and accepted for their antimicrobial qualities, which is essential for maintaining truly clean homes. Pure essential oils are so potent that they can destroy certain microbes (bacteria, fungus and viruses) with the compounds they contain.  With all of the cleaning recipes you can make at home, why not add some extra cleaning power and pizzazz by adding in essential oils?

What Constitutes an Essential Oil?

Not all essential oils are created equal, my friends.  When looking for the right essential oil for clean homes, make sure you’re picking up pure essences so that you’re getting the maximum intended benefits from the healthiest and most potent plants. Essential oils are extracted through steam distillation or cold pressing from the very herbs, plants or flowers themselves. That’s why the scent is so potent, the beneficial properties are so plentiful and are the oils are quite concentrated.  All of the benefits are distilled into the teeniest, tiniest droplets and bottled up for your use and pleasure.
