Home Made Cleaner: How to Make Your Own Aromatherapy Spray to Cleanse, Disinfect and Freshen Your Home… Naturally!
Home Made Cleaners: Cheap, Easy, Earth Friendly… and Aromatic!
Cleaning your home with products that won’t poison you or bring on an allergy attack is easier than you might think. It’s also much less expensive than buying store-bought cleaning products. And the best benefit of making your own aromatherapy spray – it smells fabulous!
Green is the latest big movement in energy, cars and cleaners. But consider the amount of energy that goes into manufacturing those bottles of spray and jars of scrub. Think about the transportation costs to get them to your store shelves. Not to mention the toxic ingredients that often go into making them.
Reduce, reuse, recycle. Making cleaning products yourself reduces the amount of product you buy. Plus, if you put your aromatherapy spray in old, clean bottles, you’re reusing. And of course, plastics go in recycling bins, not trash cans.
Make your Own Homemade Cleaning Solution… with Just a Few Key Ingredients
You only need three or four key ingredients to get great cleaning results in just about every area of your home, and you can buy most of them from your supermarket. You need:
A big jug of white vinegar.
A box of borax (usually found in the laundry detergent section.)
Baking soda. (Buy it from your local bulk food store and reduce your packaging even further.)
A few of your favorite essential oils.
Aromatherapy Home Made Spray Recipe
This is one of the quickest, easiest homemade cleaning recipes you’ll ever make. You can use it everywhere: Spray it on your sinks, toilets and countertops to disinfect them. Spray it onto a cloth and damp-wipe to dust your furniture. Use it to clean your car, your office, your patio furniture…
1 teaspoon borax
1/4 cup vinegar
2 cups water
30 drops essential oil
Boil the water. Pour it into a large glass measuring cup or pitcher with a spout. Add the borax and stir until it’s dissolved. Add the vinegar. Let cool, then pour the mixture into a spray bottle. Drop in the essential oils.
Note: Add the essential oils AFTER your pour the cleaner into the bottle because the essential oil’s scent can “stick” to your measuring cup or pitcher.
Caution: Do not use this recipe to clean windows, mirrors or glass; it will cause streaks. The secret to home made spray for glass is just to use vinegar and essential oils. Fill a spray bottle with white vinegar, drop in a few essential oils and voila! a grease-cutting, streak-free, aromatic glass cleaner!
