This Homemade Cleaner with Essential Oils recipe avoids all the chemicals that are found in the cleaning aisle of your local grocery store. It’s safe to use around pets and children and the reason why I haven’t bought the store bought cleaners in over 3 years!
Once I began my mission of living chemical free I made two recipes religiously. One was a Homemade Cleaner and the other was a Hershey Syrup recipe that I’ve adapted and made into my own over time. It was simply water, vinegar and a drop of dish soap. While it seemed to work my family was still sick, the house smelled of vinegar and would run the family out of the house! So after using my Young Living Essential Oils I realized that I needed to add Thieves to kill the germs off in the house and add Lemon so that the house smelled fresh and clean!
I will say that I haven’t been happier with a cleaner that I made until now. Sure when you clean with water it doesn’t leave streaks, but, I have kids and need germs to die! That’s where Thieves essential oil comes into play.
WARNING: Because of the oils you will need to shake your bottle before each use. If not it may result in streaking!
