DIY Cleaning With Essential Oils


I’ve always thought that making my own cleaning products was expensive and time consuming so have always avoided going down that path.

However, the last few months I have found myself using more natural products in my cleaning routine- essential oils, vinegar, baking powder compared to more mainstream products that contains potential toxins and harmful chemicals that can be harmful to our health and the environment. Surprisingly, I’ve come to quite enjoy using these products and especially essential oils as they smell so good I tend to forget I’m cleaning:)

So, I’ve done some research on cleaning in a more natural way
