Essential Oils, Healthy Lifestyle

Cleaning doesn’t have to be a dirty word!

It’s been mighty cold where I live the past few weeks. When you are all cooped up and don’t want to go out, you might find some extra time to do some deep cleaning.  OK, well that isn’t my idea of having fun, but there sure is a good feeling that you get when you have cleared clutter and everything is clean and organized!

I especially like using essential oils when I clean. Everything smells to fresh and I know there is a lot of germ-killing power in the oils too! I’m not a scientist, but as one friend says, I just know they work!

I ran across a few recipes for cleaning with essential oils you might enjoy trying…
