Here are some ways to use essential oils for household purposes:

  • For a vacuum cleaner. To remove the unpleasant smell from the vacuum cleaner, add a couple of drops of fragrant ylang-ylang or other favorite oil to the vacuum cleaner.
  • For the refrigerator. A cloth with a few drops of mandarin and lavender essential oil in the refrigerator will help remove odors. The procedure must be repeated periodically.
  • For the trash can. Place a drop each of tea tree and orange essential oil on a cotton pad and place it in a washed trash can.
  • For microwave oven. Add 4-5 drops of lemon essential oil to a glass of water, then heat the resulting mixture at maximum temperature for 3-4 minutes. The microwave will be much easier to clean.
  • For the toilet. Spray air fresheners do more harm than good to our health. Freshening the air can be done by adding sandalwood or any conifer essential oil to the censer (or bottle cap, etc.). If you repeat the procedure every week, the toilet will always smell fresh.
  • For laundry. In a bowl, mix half a liter of water, a glass of 9%. vinegar and 250 g of soda. Add 5 drops each of geranium and lavender essential oil to this effervescent mixture and mix well – the fabric softener is ready.
  • For footwear. Mix 3 tablespoons of soda with essential oils of tea tree, mint, rosemary and lavender (1-2 drops each). Sprinkle your socks with the resulting mixture, put them in your shoes and keep them overnight. The pleasant and mild smell will last all day.
  • For furniture and lime deposits. Mix 10-12 drops each of sage, tea tree and lemon essential oil with 0.5 liter of vinegar. This simple tool cleans and disinfects perfectly. This mixture can also be poured into a teapot or pot and heated to remove limescale.
  • For perfuming rooms. Add a few drops of your favorite essential oil to a spray bottle with water, shake and spray. It can also be used on the surfaces of upholstered furniture (eucalyptus essential oil is especially suitable – it is a good remedy for dust mites. Lemon essential oil will work to eliminate the smell of tobacco).
  • For windows. Add a glass of 9% to a spray bottle. vinegar, the same amount of water and 11-13 drops of lemon oil. Shake well, spray on the glass and wipe with a paper towel or lint-free cloth.

  • From moths. Mix a teaspoon each of rosemary, lemon, lavender and clove essential oils, apply to a sponge and clean an empty closet. To make the effect even better, you can leave a cotton ball soaked in such a mixture in the closet. Moths will never live in such a closet!
