Is your cleaning routine really as clean as you think it is? Spring cleaning is a ritual purging of the accumulated dirt, germs and odor from a winter-weary home to create a clean and healthy living space. Unfortunately, the often caustic and toxic ingredients used in most conventional cleaning products can be just as harmful as the dirt and germs they are meant to eliminate. Even some so-called natural cleansers can contain these same or similar nasty ingredients.

Many air fresheners and room deodorizers contain phthalates, a group of chemicals that may disrupt the body’s hormone balance and affect the reproductive system.

Utilize the cleaning and disinfecting benefits of Organic Essential Oils from Essante Organics and enjoy a pure aromatherapy experience!

Organic Air Freshener & Deodorizer alternative from Essante Organics:
Mix 40 drops of essential oil in a spray bottle with water, or add 10 drops of essential oil to a humidifier or an aromatherapy diffuser.

Eucalyptus oil is ideal for bathrooms, as it helps eliminate airborne bacteria.
Lavender oil is calming and uplifting, perfect for bedrooms and linens!

Organic, non-toxic Oven Cleaner recipe:

½ cup White Vinegar
