Although this essential oil surface cleaner is NOT meant to be used on the body or skin, I still wanted to feature it within the Natural Body & Soul blog series because of it's benefits to natural daily health.

This type of cleaner is perfect for everyday use and best for a "quick and dirty" (no pun intended) wipe-down. My kitchens and bathrooms get a thorough deep clean a few times a month, but on a day-to-day basis I usually only have time for a quick "spray" and "wipe down".
This recipe contains only water and essential oils and works great for door-nobs, counter-tops, wood surfaces, showers floor tiles.....and even yoga mats!
This special combination of essential oils helps to ward off bacteria and bugs, while also neutralizing odors. It's perfect for cleaning almost anything!
The tea tree and lemongrass essential oils have effective anti-bacterial and anti-fungal properties, helping to deter any funky growth, keep surfaces clean and safe longer. The peppermint and lemongrass essential oils both help prevent bugs, ants or any other teeny critters we don't want crawling around our house. The lemongrass (again with the amazing lemongrass!) combined with the sweet orange essential oil help neutral lingering odors, allowing for a fresh and clean-smelling atmosphere.
I like to choose safe, high-quality and moderately-priced oils from reputable brands like NOW and Aura Cacia.
Here's the Recipe:
4 oz water in glass spray bottle
15 drops tea tree oil
15 drops lemon grass oil
2 drops wild orange oil
2 drops peppermint oil
Shake, spray and wipe down with a soft cloth or paper towel.
Feel free to slightly adjust the number of drops per essential oil depending on your personal preference. This particular recipe may be a little heavy on the lemongrass, but it's one of my favorite essential oils!
Note: This oil is not meant to be sprayed on the body, only on surfaces. Any essential oil blend for body-use would need to have less drops of oil per ounce of water.
