Clean your home with the bright aromas of citrus essential oils

Added to your own DIY cleaning products, citrus essential oils provide a clean, bright scent that turns your housework chores into pleasant tasks. Plus, citrus oils work well with soaps and cleansers to lift dirt, dust and grime. A few citrus essential oil home-cleaning uses you might want to try: lemon in dish soap or window cleaner, sweet orange for bathroom cleaning and bergamot for cleaning carpets and upholstery.

Use citrus oils to care for your indoor air

These aromas don’t just cover up indoor airspaces with fragrance, they clarify the air with the kind of clean, pure scents that can only be derived from nature. Try lime in a room spray, grapefruit in a diffusion, or add a few drops of sweet orange to a steaming pan of hot water on the stove.
