Living in a Toxic Free Cleaning World

Updated: Mar 16


Using essential oils to clean is effective and better for your health and home.


Ok, so I have to admit that I love cleaning.  Having a clean home is important and I can be a bit over the top when it comes to cleaning and organizing.  I can’t go to bed with dishes in the sink and I won’t leave my house without the bed made. My dad taught me that when your bed is made, everything else is easy:) I try to be more relaxed about it, but I just can’t.  If my house isn’t to my satisfaction, I feel overwhelmed.  I absolutely can’t handle things out of place, I like things streak free and shining. I know am over the top and I'm dealing with it.


A few years ago, I started thinking of all the harmful chemicals I was using and exposing families to. The main disadvantage of chemical cleaners is the harsh ingredients and the way they can affect us. Breathing in an assortment of chemicals as well as skin contact is never going to be healthy, also, chemical cleaning products are often harmful to the environment. However, we can minimize this for the better.


I researched recipes and started trying different things. I was skeptical thinking... "would I really be able to make products that work like Windex"?  Or. what about that Lysol smell after my floors are mopped?  Most important the disinfectant! What about the toilet bowl?  Yup, I like cleaning toilets too!


I started making homemade products with my oils that are all antifungal, disinfectant, antibacterial, and antimicrobial. When it came to my precious cleaning supplies, let me tell you, I was impressed! I used the black light (don't judge me) to seal the deal.  I still get that clean, fresh look and scent without the chemicals.  I used a couple products to clean my entire house, and it still sparkles.

My favorite natural cleaning products contains vinegar, baking soda and Castile soap

VINEGAR- Vinegar is great for cleaning because of its high acidity level. It can remove sticky buildup, dissolve soap scum, get rid of rings left by hard water, and cut grease. Vinegar can also kill salmonella and E.coli, two bacteria you’ll want to kill.

BAKING SODA- Baking soda is great for absorbing odor and removing stains, making it a go-to for your natural cleaning. Baking Soda is a mild alkali and can cause dirt and grease to dissolve easily in water for effective removal.

CASTILE SOAP- Castile soap is gentle, safe and leaves surfaces squeaky clean. Castile soap is highly concentrated, making it cost-effective because you only need a little bit each time you clean, and each bottle will last you a long time.


Essential oils have powerful cleansing and purifying properties. They can be used to cleanse surfaces, purify the air, and leave behind a pleasant aroma that makes your house smell clean and refreshing. I love citrus oils when cleaning to get that lemon “LYSOL-Y” smell!


I like to keep it simple. I can’t believe how little I use when it comes to cleaning. Under my sink, where I keep the cleaning supplies, is pretty boring, but I like it. I like that my kids can help me clean without me having to worry about chemical burns or them breathing harmful fumes I like that the ingredients are healthy and natural. I love that they work so much I had to share the love!



Y’all, that’s it! Simple. I know my products will cover all your cleaning needs, because I have a lot of cleaning needs. As I said, I am a bit over the top when it comes to cleaning, I clean only with my products so believe me, they are tried and true.


Start your journey to a toxic-free home with booking a cleaning service or shopping our website. Thank you for being here. Thank you for allowing me to do what I love. These are a go-to for me and I love that I know I’m being as healthy as I can be with all of the products I make.


Happy cleaning, my friends!
