I’m not exactly sure when our society stopped making their own things and switched to chemical-filled, store-bought products for their household cleaners.
I’m sure my grandmother knew the wonders of vinegar and baking soda, but at some point the convenience of pre-packaged cleaners took over. Unfortunately those cleaners are filled with chemicals and potential toxins.
For me, it’s not worth the risk to expose my kids to these things so I was excited to try making my own.
Homemade All-Purpose Spray Cleaner
- 2 cups water
- 2 cups distilled vinegar
- 15-20 drops citrus essential oil
- 15-20 drops Thieves essential oil
- Mix in a spray bottle and spray as needed.
Young Living has a number of different citrus based essential oils that would be perfect for this cleaner.
The Young Living Premium Starter Kit comes with Lemon and a free Citrus Fresh which would also be great in this homemade cleaner. Citrus Fresh, grapefruit and orange are rich in the powerful antioxidant d-limonene, it supports the immune system and overall health while bringing about a sense of well-being, creativity, and feelings of joy. Lemon and tangerine essential oils consist of 68 percent dlimonene, a powerful antioxidant.
Thieves oil also comes in the Young Living Premium Starter Kit. Thieves has cleansing abilities and is highly effective in supporting the immune system and good health.
