Keep your home impeccably clean in a healthy and natural way with essential oils. Easily replace your usual household cleaners with homemade, healthy, and natural products. These eco-friendly basics are good for your home and your budget.

Essential natural ingredients:

White vinegar:

Try white vinegar for all your cleaning needs

Combine ¼ cup white vinegar and 1 litre of water in a spray bottle. Add a few drops of your favourite essential oils, such as Lavender Hybrid Super, Lemon, Balsam fir, etc. This natural cleaner is perfect for windows, kitchen counters, bathrooms, and floors.

  • Remove limestone and de-scale appliances: Pour white vinegar directly on the surface (tap, toilet bowl, etc.) along with a few drops of Lemon essential oil to disinfect. Let sit for a few minutes before rinsing with water.
  • Clean the microwave: Combine water, white vinegar, and a few drops of essential oil in a bowl and microwave for a few minutes. Wipe down the condensation inside the microwave.
