Like to make your own non-toxic homemade cleaners? Cleaning with essential oils is a great way to up your cleaning game and leave your home smelling great.
Essential oils are everywhere these days. They are great for diffusing and making your house smell great but did you know they are great for using in homemade non-toxic cleaning products as well?
Conventional cleaners can contain harmful ingredients. Making your own is a great way to control what ingredients you are using and save money over the often pricey natural cleaners.
The fragrance is one of the ingredients in cleaners that can be harmful to our families. It can contain all kinds of toxic things including phthalates, which may cause serious health problems including liver, kidney, lung, and reproductive system damage.
A safer way to scent your homemade non-toxic cleaners is by using essential oils. Essential oils can also have cleaning properties that make your cleaners more effective.
