Since New Year is a time for starting afresh, we thought we´d offer some tips to help keep your healthy resolutions easy.
Did you know you can use essential oils in your home to make it clean and uplift your mood? Lavender, grapefruit, eucalyptus, tea tree (melaleuca), and rosemary are common favorites for cleaning.
To clean carpets and mattresses, mix your favorite essential oil with a bit of water and a cup of baking soda, sprinkle the baking soda generously over carpets or mattresses, and let it sit there for 15 minutes to absorb odors, grease, etc. Vacuum it up thoroughly.
To freshen and soften laundry, add just one or two drops of essential oil to your detergent.
Remember, essential oils contain the very essence of a plant and can be very intense - you need to use only very little of high quality oils. We hope you enjoy using these precious oils to make your home a sanctuary where you can feel relaxed and revived, helping you to keep your resolutions all through the year.
