Making your own natural, non toxic DIY Multipurpose Spray is the easiest way to keep your home fresh and clean.
Typically store bought multipurpose sprays contain harmful chemicals such as:
- Sodium laureyl sulphate
- Dipropylene Glycol Butyl Ether
- Sodium Dodecyl Benzene Sulphonate
The above chemicals are not safe for adults, not to mention how toxic they are to have around kids and babies. We have to start being more proactive with reducing our chemical exposure and it all starts with simple swaps.
Swapping out our commercial toxic cleaners for natural, easy to make homemade options is a wonderful step to creating a better environment for our family.
Our DIY multipurpose spray is a wonderful alternative to your every-day, all purpose chemical filled, bench top cleaners,. This multipurpose spray is effective, cheap to make and you can add whatever essential oils you like to create a yummy smell you enjoy!
With all the anti-bacterial, anti-viral and anti-microbial properties essential oils are a fantastic addition to your homemade multi purpose spray.
Essential oils that are best for your multipurpose sprays include clove, lemongrass, oregano, tea tree, lemon, wild orange, grapefruit, cinnamon, basil, thyme, and rosemary.
Not only will essential oils add a beautiful aroma into your space they will wok on your behalf to combat mould, germs, and bacteria. Essential oils are such a wonderful ingredient as their versatility means you can ditch the harsh chemicals and use something natural that is just as, if not more effective.
