Aromatherapy and Cleaning?

Posted on March 26th, 2013

What does aromatherapy have to do with cleaning?  Everything!  If things do not smell good or smell fresh....we think that they are dirty or not clean.  On the other hand a fresh scent doe not always mean that something is clean.   It's best to be clean and fresh smelling! 

Here is a homemade aromatic and effective recipe to try for furniture:


1 part olive oil

1 part lemon juice or a few drops of lemon essential oil

Mix and apply with a soft cloth. Buff to a shine. This doesn’t keep well, so make a little for each time you use it.
I really love how this carpet freshener scents the house!


2/3 cup baking soda

40 drops essential lime oil

25 drops essential tangerine oil

Place the ingredients in a bowl and mix well. Allow the freshener to “ripen” for 24 hours before sprinkling it on the carpet. Let the mixture stay on the carpet for at least 20 minutes before vacuuming it up.

Aromatherapy has its place in cleaning the home.....remember that scents make memories.  Keep your memories of home happy and uplifting!
