I´ve talked a lot about the benefits of using essential oils to fortify your immune system but also for emotional purposes.
This time let´s talk about the uses of essential oils for house cleaning purposes. A great way to reduce chemicals at home but also create good ambience with a delicious smell, killing all the bacteria!
Many essential oils are well known for their antimicrobial properties. Remember that they are very concentrated, and have the capacity to destroy fungus, viruses and bacteria.
Take always into consideration the brand of the oil, in order to have guarantee of the quality and its effectiveness. The process of extraction is key to maintain the beneficial properties of the oil.
I personally choose DOterra Products, because this brand offers a special certification called CPTG Certified Pure Tested Grade®. The CPTG process certifies that there are no added fillers, synthetic ingredients, or harmful contaminants in their essential oils that would reduce their efficacy. You can look for any bottle that you buy just checking the serial number.
When using essential oils ensure they are always diluted in water or carrier oil in order to avoid any reaction. In case that the oil get in contact with some sensitive area you should take it out with other oil like coconut oil, never with water.
Take special consideration with pets and kids that are more sensitive to this kind of products. Essential oils are really potent!
