Cleaning your home doesn’t always have to involve harsh synthetic chemicals. There are plenty of ways to clean your home safely and naturally. With just a few natural ingredients, you can forget about toxic chemical cleaning products and enjoy natural cleaning. Natural ingredients are not only better for your health, but also much easier on your budget. Here are a few homemade cleaning products with essential oils.

Homemade Cleaning Products with Essential Oils

Using homemade cleaning products that are made with essential oils helps you clean your home with natural cleaners. Peppermint, tea tree, and lemon oil are some of the most effective essential oils to use when cleaning.

Lime Essential Oil Soft Scrub


  • Ten drops of lime essential oil
  • One tablespoon water
  • Two tablespoons castile soap
  • ½ cup baking soda

Mix up all the ingredients in a bowl and use it immediately to clean sinks, stovetop, and tubs. In case you’re left with any leftover mixture, you can store it in a glass jar for later use.

Peppermint Daily Shower Spray


Combine all the ingredients into the glass spray bottle and shake to mix. When using the cleaner, shake the ingredients well and spray on walks and in the shower every day. No need to rinse.

Tea Tree Toilet Cleaner


  • 1 cup white vinegar
  • 1 cup baking soda
  • A ¼ cup of salt
  • 8 oz glass spray bottle
  • 10 drops tea tree oil (melaleuca essential oil)
  • A container with shaker lid

Add vinegar to the glass spray bottle and set it aside. Add baking soda, tea tree oil and salt together in the shaker container and mix them. When cleaning, spray vinegar in a toilet bowl, then sprinkle in the powder mix. A fizz reaction will occur, which means the cleaner is working. Add vinegar if needed and let it sit for about 15 minutes. Finally, scrub with a toilet brush and flush when done.

Dusting Spray


  • 8 oz glass spray bottle
  • Ten drops of lemon essential oil or white fir
  • Three tablespoons of white vinegar
  • ¾ cups of distilled water

Combine all the ingredients in a spray bottle (except water). Swirl to combine them effectively. You can then add the water, screw on the top and shake to combine. To use, shake and lightly mist onto a microfiber cloth and use it to wipe down the area you want to clean.

Simple Furniture Polish


  • 2 oz glass lotion pump
  • ¼ cup olive oil
  • 5 drops lemon essential oil

Mix the ingredients in a bottle and shake them to combine. To use, squirt a few pumps on a microfiber cloth and use it to wipe the furniture surface clean. Experts recommend cleaning your furniture every 1-2 months. For regular cleaning, use dusting spray or simple wipe down the wooden surface with a damp microfiber cloth.

In Conclusion

Every day we expose our families to chemicals. There are chemicals in the products we use to wash our clothing, the products we use on our pets and even the processed foods we eat. Using these homemade cleaning products with essential oils is a great way to reduce our exposure to harsh chemicals and embrace natural products.
