This weekend our little town had Girls Night Out. All the little shops and restaurants downtown stay open later than usual, and there are extra fun things going on! I was able to set up in one of my fave stores, Blume – it was so fun getting to talk oily stuff with everyone, and even some made some All-Purpose Cleaning Sprays with me!
This spray is made with Young Living’s Thieves Household Cleaner – which is AH-mazing. If you haven’t looked into it, you really should! It is a concentrate, so it literally takes a HALF of a capful to make one of these sprays (16oz.)! And I clean EVERYTHING with it! From the toilets to the kitchen counters (don’t worry, I use a separate wipe…but same spray!) It works and it is totally a cost effective option as well. Win-win!
By the time you’re all said and done, you really only pay like $1.50 (or maybe even less) for each spray. You can’t get a good -and safe- cleaner like that anywhere!
It really can be used for so much more too – I used the concentrate to make my laundry detergent, you can use it for dish soap, hand soap, dishwasher detergent…just take a second to look and you will find so many uses for this product. And you can rest assured knowing that its actually filled with all the good stuff – no harsh chemicals or toxins. I always tell people, it’s totally fine if your kid decides to lick the mirror after you spray it because it’s a safe spray! In fact, it may be good for them! haha!!
Here’s the recipe I use for my all-purpose cleaning spray:
+1/2 capful Thieves Household Cleaner
+3 drops Young Living Lemon essential oil
+fill remainder of bottle with distilled water
I use these 16oz. glass spray bottles.
(SIDE NOTE: It is best to use glass when mixing in essential oils, because we don’t want plastic leaching in to the mix.)
(SIDE NOTE 2: Distilled water is best, so we can be sure no extras are getting into the spray and interfering with the effectiveness of the essential oils)
Here’s a printable recipe card to reference in the future!
You can also make this spray if you don’t have the Thieves Household Cleaner, by using a couple of the oils included in the Starter Kit! Here’s a recipe card:
