If you’re just getting started with natural cleaning, making an all-purpose surface cleaner is the best place to start. Homemade surface cleaner is super affordable, versatile, and allows you to experiment with your favorite essential oils. It serves an all-purpose role in the home and can be used to clean many surfaces.

Homemade All-Purpose Cleaner:

  • 2 cups distilled water
  • 1/4 cup castile soap
  • 15 drops combined essential oils of choice

Instructions: Using a spray bottle, combine the water, castile soap and essential oils and shake. Store at room temperature.

To Use: Gently shake the spray bottle before spraying the cleaner on the desired surface. Spray the cleaner and wipe off the surface with a damp cloth - this is important to avoid a soapy residue.
