Essential oils in the bathroom

Every part of your home should have Essential Oils but my favourite to use them is in the bathroom - especially when it comes to cleaning. You can choose a wide variety of oils but it is best to go with those stronger disinfecting ones but then blend it to calm the smell down. Here is my list..


  • Peppermint - mix it with Lemon, Grapefruit, Eucalyptus or Bergamot

  • Thyme - combines well with any citrus

  • Lemongrass - mixes well with Peppermint, Lemon and Basil

  • Tea Tree - Add to Bergamot, Peppermint or Lavender

  • Eucalyptus - Mix with Peppermint or Lavender

  • Lemon - Mixes with Bergamot, Peppermint or Lemongrass


So..

In a diffuser, these oils have the power to clean the air and give a fresh, clean smelling bathroom. You want to add a total of 8-10 drops into the diffuser. Choose from the above options.


Daily shower spray..

To keep your shower smelling fresh in between cleans (and to help ward against a build-up of mildew) whip up a bottle of this spray to keep on hand. After each shower, simply spritz around the wet stall and go!

Combine in a small to medium sized bottle:

  • 1/2 cup vinegar

  • 1/2 cup distilled water

  • 10 drops of lemon

  • 5 drops peppermint

Shake well before using.



aromatherapy benefits:


choose 1 essential oil from the above list and drop 2-3 drops on the shower floor before you jump in and let the steam give you a purifying ‘wake up’ and clearing of the senses.
