Green Cleaning with Essential Oils

Is your cleaning routine really as clean as you think it is? Spring cleaning is a ritual purging of the accumulated dirt, germs and odor from a winter-weary home to create a clean and healthy living space. Unfortunately, the often caustic and toxic ingredients used in most conventional cleaning products can be just as harmful as the dirt and germs they are meant to eliminate. Even some so-called natural cleansers can contain these same or similar nasty ingredients.

The best way to make sure your living space is clean and healthy is to use safe cleaning products you create yourself, using natural and inexpensive ingredients. It's cost-effective, simple, and — like the task of spring cleaning itself — satisfying and rewarding.

Start with essential oils. Lemon (deodorizing), peppermint, eucalyptus and tea tree (purifying), are essential to your homemade cleaners kit. Here's a shopping list of other key ingredients for making your homemade cleaning products.

You'll also want to use clean, distilled water, which acts as a carrier and dirt solvent. Tap water often contains salts and minerals that can lead to spotting and build-up.

Follow these simple recipes and tricks for making your own basic cleaning products:
