EO Tips for Life: Boost Cleaning Power


Due to the antibacterial, antifungal, and antiviral properties of many essential oils, adding them to your natural cleaning sprays will enhance the cleaning power and provide a little extra boost. Try adding several drops of lemon, sage, or grapefruit essential oil to a spray bottle of vinegar for a natural all-purpose cleaning spray.
