Homemade Cleaning Spray with Essential Oils

One of my New Year’s resolutions was to have a more environment-friendly home. That meant throwing out all the chemical cleaners I used to keep my home germ free. Though they may work like magic, they are really harmful to nature as well as my family. I don’t want nasty fumes to mess with our healthy bodies.

Finding “greener” alternatives can be a challenge, and many products are not available in our area. That is why I came up with my own homemade cleaning spray recipe with essential oils.

I love how simple this recipe is to make! You literally only need 3 ingredients to make an amazing cleaning spray that is all natural!

Distilled White Vinegar

Distilled white vinegar is known for its ability to kill bacteria, get rid of stubborn water spots, and eliminate tough grime! Mixing it with half water is the sweet spot for this ingredient.


Water is used to dilute this recipe as well as give the vinegar optimal cleaning scenarios! Diluting the essential oils is also important so the scent is not too overwhelming for little ones or pets that may be around.

Clean and Fresh Essential Oil Blend

Clean and Fresh Essential Oil Blend is a combination of Fir Needle, Neroli, Lemon, & Grapefruit essential oils. It is a natural cleaner and also has properties that boost energy!

Spray Bottle

A spray bottle is needed for quick access to this recipe! Whipping out a spray bottle to get rid of an area of dirt is quick and simple!

This recipe is safe with children 2+.

Keep this recipe out of reach of pets as the ingredients in this recipe can cause harm to your furry friend.

Never ingest any essential oil, even if it’s generally regarded as safe. For more information on why we don’t ingest essential oils, check out this blog post
