Why would we use chemical agents that can be extremely harmful to our health, when there’s an equal and absolutely safe alternative – essential oils? Our today’s post would surely convince you that at least a few bottles of your domestic chemicals can safely go right in the garbage.


Air freshener

This handmade home aroma recipe is pretty simple: just add a few drops of your favorite essential oil to a spray bottle filled with water and sprinkle your room.

Moth persecutors

Moth would never inhabit a wardrobe with the fragrances of rosemary, lemon, lavender or clove. But note that you should arrange all these oils into a single aroma. Saturate a sponge with this mixture and thoroughly sponge down the interior of your wardrobe.


No smells in a vacuum cleaner

The smell of dust is hardly acceptable, even when it comes from a vacuum cleaner. You can relieve your appliance from this problem with the help of a cotton pad dipped in the ylang-ylang oil. Place it into a vacuum cleaner by commonly vacuuming it up.


Fridge freshener

A piece of fabric dipped in lavender or tangerine oil would replace all the unpleasant odors that may appear in a refrigerator. Just make sure you refresh the aromas from time to time.

No stinky garbage cans

You can say goodbye to all the bad smells in a trash can with a cotton pad and a few drops of orange or tea tree essential oils. Just sponge the prewashed garbage can down with this mixture and that’s it.


Microwave oven smells

This treatment is quite simple: place a glass of water with 5-7 drops of lemon essential oil into an oven and let it work at the maximum power for 3-4 minutes.


Permanent WC freshness

Plaster or gypsum air fresheners with a few drops of sandalwood oil would keep your WC fresh for a week. Just make sure you repeat the procedure weekly.
