Have you heard about the healing and purification power of essential oils? Not only are they good for the body by way of their healing properties (anti-fungal, anti-bacterial, and a host of other positive effects depending on which plant the oil was derived from), but they smell magically delicious.
I have taken to filling and refilling my spray bottle with a delightful blend of witch hazel, tea tree oil, water, and whatever delicious blend of essential oils I may be in the mood for. It smells so good and fresh that I can’t seem to stop cleaning, which is highly unusual for me and can only mean great things for my family.
My recipe (I don’t actually measure – these are all guestimates):
1 1/2 cups water
splash of witch hazel (maybe ¼ cup?)
7 drops tea tree oil
15 drops geranium oil
10 drops lemon oil
6 drops cinnamon bark oil
The cinnamon and lemon blend smells surprisingly intoxicating. I use this mix to spritz and wipe my counter tops, table top, kitchen cabinets, the kitchen garbage pail, and sometimes the floor if I need to do a quick wipe-up. It makes everything smell delightful.
