Antibacterial Surface Cleaner with Essential Oils

Ever since I started living by myself, having a clean home has become a priority. However, I did not want to use all those chemical-laden products we find in stores. Even if they do the job, the odor is just unbearable and I know inhaling it will have bad side effects in the long run. So I sought for an all-natural antibacterial surface cleaner that is inexpensive, smells amazing and most of all – does its job!

For this recipe, I use Defender Essential Oil Blend. It is an amazing mix of clove, lemon, eucalyptus, rosemary, and cinnamon essential oils. These essential oils are known to boost the immune system while at the same time killing nasty germs. I like to add a little extra Lemon Essential Oil to the mix because it smells amazing and adds some extra cleaning power.
