On a housecleaning note, one thing I love to do is to CLEAN. Yep! I enjoy cleaning my home! I’ll admit it! I am a neat freak, and I might be a bit obsessive about it. People always comment about the fresh smell at our place!.

Canadians spend more than $275 million on household cleaning products in a year. We buy these products to fight germs, streaks, stains, and odors to keep our homes sparkling clean. Cleaning is supposed to be about maintaining a healthy home, yet some common household cleaning products contain chemicals that can harm human health and the environment. What a mess!

Chemicals in cleaning products can also enter our bodies by absorption through the skin or through ingestion of household dust and chemical residues left on dishes and cutlery. And when cleaning products are flushed down the drain, they can have a serious impact on aquatic ecosystems. There is no regulatory requirement for ingredients to be listed on the label in a consistent format, so it can be hard to identify chemicals of concern.

I am asked all the time about which DIY cleaner is my favorite. So I am sharing my all-time favourite natural all-purpose cleaner. My DIY All-Purpose Green Cleaning with Essential oils is perfect for home, kitchen, tables, sinks, toilets, bathrooms, countertops, toys, floors, office, classrooms, daycare centers, nursing homes, churches, etc. It has been tested and found to be highly effective against airborne bacteria. And it’s not only a disinfectant; the aroma of this essential oil blend will also help to boost immunity!

Important! One thing to keep in mind is that not all essential oils are created equally! These volatile liquids are distilled from plants, and many things can affect their chemical makeup: soil conditions, temperature, harvest season and method, and climate.  To get the best therapeutic results, always use certified, pure therapeutic-grade oils.
