The All-natural Cleaner Everyone Should be Using

In the age of COVID-19, there has never been a better time to invest in an all-natural disinfectant for all of your cleaning needs. I love using eucalyptus oil throughout my house from countertops to bathroom cleaning, it gives a good, clean shine and makes your home smell like a spa. 
Whether you have little kids at home, or furry friends, an all-natural cleaner is a safer way to keep your family healthy than the chemical alternatives (still not safe for ingestion though). See below for a recipe and a few tips and tricks, and reach out if you want one of my cute starter kits dropped by your home or office.

Here are a Few Different Ways to Clean with Eucalyptus Oil:

Cleaning Spray
1. Mix 1/2 cup white vinegar with 1 cup hot water, add 1/8 tsp liquid dish detergent (nothing with bleach), 6 drops eucalyptus oil. Pour into a spray bottle and shake before each use.

Other Tips and Tricks (Who Knew!)

Room Air Freshener – Mix a quarter of a teaspoon (about 15 drops) of eucalyptus oil with a half teaspoon of vodka, place in a large spray bottle, and add 2 cups of water.
Floor Cleaner – add 2 capfuls (or about 20 drops) of eucalyptus oil to a bucket of hot water, then mop the floors. You can also add some white vinegar.
Anti-Moth & Silverfish Treatment – To deter moths or silverfish in your cupboards, spray or wipe drawer liners or cupboard walls with straight eucalyptus oil. A drop of oil on a padded coat hanger also works as a deterrent and freshens the air.
Pest Deterrent – Use eucalyptus oil to wipe down areas where you’re prone to getting ants. Also, put 3 or 4 drops of eucalyptus oil on a cotton ball and place in the areas where ants tend to gather, and they won't be back to visit. 
Happy cleaning!
It’s advised that you avoid the use of eucalyptus oil while pregnant. If you use any essential oil while pregnant, it is at your own risk and should be under the direct supervision of a qualified aromatherapist or naturopath. Studies have shown that most essential oils can be dangerous to an unborn fetus if used incorrectly or in large amounts. Eucalyptus is said to cause uterine stimulation, which can lead to miscarriage or early labor. Avoid use of eucalyptus oil if you experience high blood pressure or epilepsy. Keep away from children and animals if swallowed, ring poison information, or seek immediate medical attention.
If you have children or pets in the immediate vicinity of where you are using the oil, then just half the dosage. Contact should be avoided with the following: eyes, mucous membranes, lips, tongue, polished furniture, and some plastic surfaces. Keep it away from open flames and excessive heat, as it is highly flammable.
