Today’s tip is a recipe that contains essential oils well-known for their powerful antibacterial and antiviral properties, making them an excellent choice for bathrooms. The combination of essential oils in this recipe smell amazing too!
When I began using essential oils nearly 30 years ago making my own disinfecting bathroom spray cleaner was the first thing I did. Ever since then I have never used any other cleaners, none at all!
And when you consider that a 15ml bottle of essential oil contains about 250 drops I have saved myself a small fortune over the years – it is super easy to make this recipe, it smells FAR better than anything you can buy in the store and it’s eco-friendly!
The other thing I prefer for my cleaning recipes is a better quality essential oil – because then I know I am not getting some diluted down, adulterated essential oil with god knows what kind of toxins in it – which would have defeated the purpose of why I began using essential oils in the first place, to get the artificial all-natural cleaning products out of my home.
Disinfecting Essential Oil Bathroom Cleaner Recipe
You will need:
- 32 oz. spray bottle (the “Hudson” brand spray bottle found at Lowe’s is the best quality and very durable)
- 12 drops Spearmint
- 10 drops Orange or Lemon or Tangerine
- 8 drops Lavender
- 8 drops Thyme
- 6 drops Rosemary CT cineol
- 4 drops Eucalyptus globulus
Fill spray bottle with water, add your Young Living essential oils.
Shake the mixture well and periodically during use.
Use this spray to clean and disinfect all bathroom surfaces.
To Clean Tubs and Sinks:
Simply spray solution into sink or tub so it is thoroughly wet, sprinkle sink or tub with Baking Soda. Scrub with cloth, rinse.
For a nice finishing touch lightly spray sink, tub and surfaces and allow them to air-dry. The essential oil mixture in the spray will continue to work its magic disinfecting and leave your bathroom smelling super fresh and clean!
