Essential Oils: Essential Facts About Essential Oils

Essential oils have a vast variety of restorative uses, including anxiety lessening and relaxing, cooling an annoyed stomach, easing back agony, purifying a cut, or just cleaning your home.


If you’re looking for safer and greener cleaning methods, learn about how essential oils can work

1. Lemon essential oil

Citrus scents are my go-to oils for cleaning because of their fresh scent, and lemon essential oil is one of my favorite because it has powerful antibacterial, antifungal and antiviral properties. It’s great for brightening dingy floors, cleaning windows and freshening up laundry that’s been in the washing machine too long.

For your floors, mix 15 drops of lemon essential oil with one bucket of water, one cup of white vinegar and one tablespoon of castille soap, then mop! If you want to clean windows or countertops, mix a few drops with white vinegar to achieve squeaky clean surfaces. And if you find your wet clothes smell a little musty, just run the wash again, this time with a few drops of oil.

2. Citrus orange essential Oil
Another citrus scent with an uplifting aroma that’s an ideal option for spring cleaning is sweet orange essential oil. Mix a few drops of the oil with baking soda on a moist sponge for greasy stove tops. You can also use this mixture to wipe down the shelves and walls of your refrigerator.

3. Tea tree oil
Tea tree essential oil is another great addition to your green arsenal if you’re looking for strong antibacterial, antiseptic and antifungal cleaning agent. Tea tree oil works well for ridding your home of that musty smell it might have acquired during the winter months. It’s also great for cleansing mold- or mildew-prone areas like your shower. Just add a couple drops to two cups of water and spritz around your home, shower doors, sinks and bathtub. No need to wipe it up afterward!

4. Peppermint essential oil

Peppermint essential oil is another favorite of mine for its invigorating smell. Not only is it a great pest deterrent, peppermint oil also has strong antibacterial properties — it’s the ideal combination to add to vinegar for disinfecting your bathrooms and kitchen. Just add a few drops to water, spritz and wipe off.

5. Lavender essential oil

Lavender essential oil is strong addition to any house cleaning routine: it’s antiseptic, antiviral, antibacterial and antifungal. Freshen up your laundry by adding a few drops to a wash cloth and tossing it in your dryer, or add a few drops to a solution of one part vinegar, three parts water to clean your floor.

Special Notes from the Author:

Essential Oils come in three distinct evaluations:

1) Therapeutic Grade
2) Food Grade (or Culinary Grade which means it is edible)
3) Perfume Grade
4) Sustenance Grade
5) Helpful Grade
6) Aroma Grade

Note: Perfume Grade Oils intermittently claim to be “natural,” they still may be a substandard grade produced using a mediocre plant. Ordinarily the oil is not even the genuine article.”Contaminated is uncontrolled in the essential oil industry…blending can happen with the genuine natural or other organic or synthetic…” So says Maria Lis-Balchin, a main specialist and master in fragrance based treatment.

The best oils are Certified and/or Wild-Harvested


Other Essential Oils Choice List Includes the following:

White Willow Bark is one case. More than 2,000 years back, White Willow Bark was utilized by Hippocrates to simplicity migraines and solid agonies. This is used to create ibuprofin. Botanists still utilize White Willow Bark to diminish agony and irritation.
