In my opinion, the more ways there are to use something, the more valuable that thing is. I’d much rather buy something I can use in multiple ways over a single-use item!
That’s one of my favorite things about essential oils—there are so many different things you can do and make with them! In today’s post, we’ll be exploring the many useful things you can do with one of my favorite essential oils for cleaning!
Simple Clean contains lemon, cedarwood, lemongrass, balsam fir, cypress, sweet orange, pine, and tea tree essential oils. With its combination of grease-cutting, purifying, and odor-eliminating properties, there’s no shortage of ways you can use it to keep your home clean!
