Essential Oil Recipe of the Week - An Easy Cleaning Spray
I love using natural products for cleaning instead of getting (expensive) chemical products from the supermarket. Of course, the cleaning sprays you can buy at your local health store are great and are a wonderful alternative to the standard, chemical ones, but they're usually so expensive! That's why I'd love to show you a quick and easy blend that makes a great (affordable) cleaning spray.
All you'll need for this recipe is a spray bottle, vinegar and two amazing essential oils (one of them is a blend. Read on!
This oil does not only have an amazing, uplifting smell (who doesn't love a summery citrus scent?) but is also known for its cleansing and purifying properties. It's great for digestion if you have it in a glass of warm water in the morning, but it also makes a wonderful cleaner for air and surfaces.
This is a special blend of oils, created by dōTERRA, and consists of Wild Orange Peel, Clove Bud, Cinnamon Leaf, Cinnamon Bark, Eucalyptus Leaf, and Rosemary essential oils. It smells amazing (so warming!) and is a great oil blend for supporting a healthy immune function. I use it to fight colds in fall, I often add a drop or two when I do laundry and I love using it for cleaning the apartment, too.

Add everything to your spray bottle and shake well before use.
