Essential Oils ~ Countertop Spray Experiments
I've been doing some experimenting on making my own cleaning sprays for my apartment. I headed to my local Russian pharmacy and purchased some lavender oil and eucalyptus oil. Lavender oil is believed to create a feeling of calmness and relieve headaches and eucalyptus oil is believed to treat respiratory problems and freshen the air because of its anti-bacterial properties. So far I've tested out the lavender oil by mixing a couple drops in some white vinegar and water in an empty Method spray bottle to make a counter top spray. So far so good! I've seen some recipes online that add dish soap to the mix as well. For tough stains I've been sprinkling baking soda on the surface first and then using the spray mixture to make a paste scrub.
