Clean a Home With These Essential Oils

Essential oils are often used in aromatherapy to help your home or office smell like a particular fragrance and cleaning products. Since the current crisis started, many people turn to essential oils so they can make their own soap, disinfectant wipes, and cleaning supplies. When doing this, people have turned to different essential oils, such as orange and lavender, to improve the aroma of the products. 

Many people think these oils are new, but they have been a part of the world for decades to help in healing. When you properly apply them to your body or let them diffuse into the air, they can relieve pain, aid in emotional therapy, provide antibacterial protection, and even clean wood. By using certain essential oils along with vinegar and water, they can clean wood without damaging it. Furthermore, you will receive the healing effects of the oil, but this depends on which ones you use. For instance, using lavender can help you relieve stress while Jasmine can help ease anxiety. To learn more about how essential oils can help clean your wood and heal you emotionally, physically, and mentally, keep reading.

Make Your Own Wood Polish

One of the biggest questions you might have is why should you worry about making your wood polish when there are so many types for you to purchase at the store. There are even more environmentally friendly kinds, also if they are a bit more expensive. After all, isn’t it easier to buy in the store than gather up a bunch of supplies to make your own?

While it might be more accessible, this idea doesn’t mean that you’ll find the best solution to protect and keep your wood. Making your own polish and cleaning can help keep your home smelling fresh while making your furniture look new. Plus, it’s easier and cheaper than you think because you only need ¼ cup of vinegar, ¼ cup of water (¼ cup of olive oil if making polish over cleaning solution), and ten drops of your favorite essential oil.
