Green your routine

We’re all becoming more conscious about the environment and the impact everyday living is having on the planet. Many of us are turning to a greener lifestyle from eating green, using natural beauty products and even green cleaning. It’s so convenient to just grab a cleaning product from the supermarket, but have you taken the time to consider what’s inside the bottle? 

A cocktail of harsh chemicals that are harmful to you, your family and of course the environment. You’ll be surprised how easy it is to make your own cleaning products and even more surprised how effective they are at cleaning your home! 

Banish the toxic chemicals and green your routine. 

Essential Oils

Aside from the incredible aromas, essential oils also have a lot of beneficial properties that can help keep your home clean, fresh and smelling beautiful. Essential oils are nature’s germ busters and can be used in homemade cleaning products to help keep you home looking spick and span without harsh chemicals used in commercial cleaning products. 

Many essential oils are known to have antibacterial, antiviral and antifungal (disinfecting and sanitising) properties and some are amazing at cutting through grease and grime. This is thanks to their chemical components. The best oils for cleaning have high levels of either phenols or alcohols. Adding essential oils to your cleaning regime is a step in the right direction towards a green cleaning routine.
