Kitchen smells run the gamut from the wonderful aroma of freshly baked cookies to the stinky smell of burnt popcorn. Kitchens have a trash area where garbage is tossed, a spot for wet coats and muddy boots, and a corner for dog bedding and the cat’s litter box. Essential oils are a natural alternative to commercial air sprays because they cleanse the air for you instead of masking odors; they are harmless to food, humans, and the ozone; and many of them are antibiotic and antifungal so they may even help keep you from getting sick.

  • To cleanse kitchen surfaces add 4-6 drops of any one of the following essential oils to one pint of water: eucalyptus, lavender, lemon, lime, grapefruit, pine, or lemongrass. For a kitchen synergistic blend combine the following essential oils: 10 drops lavender, 15 drops lemon, and 5 drops eucalyptus. This mixture is disinfectant, antibacterial, and leaves a lovely fragrance when used on kitchen surfaces. You can add 8 drops of this formula to 2 1/2 cups of water in a plant spray bottle to spray the air or surfaces.
  • To kill germs on dishtowels soak them in a bowl of boiling water and 1 drop of eucalyptus, thyme, tea tree, or lavender. Let the towels soak  until the water is cool then wash as usual. This will keep your towels germ and bacteria free.
  • To lighten the chore of dishwashing and uplift your spirits at the same time, add 5 drops lime, 3 drops bergamot, 2 drops lavender, and 1 drop orange essential oil to your dishwashing liquid. The natural aroma of these essential oils will make a boring task take on a much lighter note. If you use a dishwasher, simply add 2 drops of lemon essential oil to the detergent you use in your machine and stir it before closing the door.

Essential oils lose their therapeutic properties after about two years but do not toss them out! Put two drops at a time down kitchen drains to create a nice scent when hot water runs down. Also use them in the water you use to wash windows and trashcans both inside and out. Essential oils make kitchen work safer and much more pleasant.

Everyone likes for their home to smell nice. Have you ever visited someone’s home and when you walked in your nose wrinkled up at the smell? Don’t let that be your house. There are many ways to make your house smell good and you can do it inexpensively and with natural products.

  1. Simmer a pan of water on the stove with dried or fresh herbs and dried fruit; or simmer fresh lemon, apple or orange rinds.
  2. Make a reed diffuser by inserting reed sticks, chopsticks or skewers into a small bottle filled with 3.5 ounces of a liquid carrier oil like coconut oil and add 3-5 drops of an essential oil like lavender, chamomile or ylang-ylang.
  3. Purchase an essential oil diffuser and essential oils. The oils last a long time since you only need to use a few drops at a time.
  4. Add a daily drop of lemon, orange or peppermint essential oil to your garbage can.
  5. Add a few drops of an essential oil like lemon, lemongrass, lavender or peppermint to a spray bottle of water and use it as a room spray.

Natural Air Fresheners

Have you ever heard of chlorofluorocarbons? That is the chemical ingredient in commercial air fresheners that is depleting the earth’s ozone layer and also doing who knows what to your family’s health. Essential oils are a much better option for making your home smell nice. There are several different ways to disperse your oils through the air as we have discussed before (see How To Use Essential Oils III.)

Diffusers are a very easy and effective way to fragrance a room. Be sure you use a diffuser made of a nonporous material so that it can be easily wiped clean when you want to change oils. There are many different types of diffusers on the market these days but even a bowl of boiling water with a few drops of your favorite essential oils added and placed centrally will leave a lingering scent all over the room. Try using the bowl before you purchase any kind of diffuser to see how well it works. If you use a bowl of hot water, remove it when the heat is gone and be careful to keep it out of the reach of children.

Holiday Guest Hack

Author: Dr. Larita

Are you having holiday guests? If you’re like me, you don’t have time or funds to paint the guest room before the expected folks arrive. While you’re out shopping for holiday gifts, pick up some colored light bulbs for your guest room. They’re pretty cheap at the Dollar Store or Walmart. Use soft red, blue or yellow low watt bulbs to create a mellow atmosphere while you hide the scuffed walls.

Another hack is to add a few drops of a holiday essential oil like frankincense, peppermint, pine or cinnamon to the light bulb before you turn it on. As the light bulbs warm up, the essential oils will scent the room and make the whole house feel festive and cheerful without breaking the bank.

Cleansing for a healthy skin doesn’t just mean you use water and soap. Double cleansing merely is cleansing your skin twice and is recommended every night for a glowing and happier face. The first step is whereby you wash your face with the use of the oil-based cleanser. It helps to remove the oil based moisturizers, sweat, and dirt on your face. The oil-based cleanser removes even the stubborn eye makeup.

After massaging your face with the cleanser, use a dumped cloth to lay on your face to lift all the dirt and makeup removed by the oil-based cleanser. Wipe your face about a minute later with the same cloth to cleanse it the second round. The second step involves gently massaging your face with a mild cleanser of your choice for about a minute or two which helps to remove the water-based dirt and then rinse your skin with warm water.

If you have sensitive, dry skin, you can go ahead and rinse your face with warm water after the first step. Double cleansing skincare slows down the aging process of your skin. It leaves your skin clean, healthy and ready to absorb a night moisturizer. Always to double cleanse your skin before bedtime and you’ll love the outcome.

The freshness of a space can really make or break your productivity, your mood, and the overall atmosphere. Having a fresh environment in which to work, play, even exercise is important. I like to make sure that my office area is fresh, that my home is fresh, and that my car is fresh as well. With my new little air freshener, that is easy.

My air freshener comes in a cute little bottle and it is all I need to turn a space from uninviting to fresh and alive. The air freshener is great to have with me in my purse as well. I like to spritz a wonderful fragrance into the air when I am at a hotel or staying over at a friend’s house. I definitely don’t want to make a bad impression, and the air freshener saves the day.

Sometimes, I am in a rush to get to work on a hot summer day and I don’t want to come into the office smelling like sweat. A scented air freshener is ready to be whipped out in a snap. Other times, I just want to have a fresh smell to wake me up in the mornings or to surround me when I get home from a long day at work and reenergize me. My air freshener has been my buddy for all these things and more.

stale odorWe are continuing our discussion about stale odors in your home. I should mention these bad smells can be anywhere. Consider places like your car, office, basement – anywhere you might be. I don’t know about you, but if I don’t have to smell a bad odor, I don’t want to. Today let’s talk about a couple more essential oils that will help you eliminate stale odors in your home.

Rosemary Essential Oil

The bubonic plague, also known simply as the plague killed over 1/3 of the earth’s population at that time. It was a devastating disease and people would burn rosemary to help stop the spread of the disease. Hospitals also used it to purify the air. Well, in this day and age, you can use rosemary essential oil in your diffuser to clean up stale air in the home because it has an antiseptic and purifying effect. It also smells great.

Grapefruit Essential Oil

Just like lemon essential oil which we’ve already discussed, grapefruit essential oil works the same way. When you smell it floating around in the air in your home you’ll see why it’s one of my favorite essential oils. Grapefruit is somewhat stronger than lemon so many people use it where the odor is stronger too, like the bathroom. It’s also great to use in the shower because it is such a refreshing pick me up. Tomorrow we have one more essential oil  to discuss and then we can get into some diffuser recipes.

bad odor

Don’t you hate it when you come home and discover you can still smell the food you cooked the night before? Or when you open his bedroom door, you can smell your teenage son’s sneakers? Most people simply spray air freshener to eliminate the odors but if you care about your family’s and your own health, you should read the label on those air fresheners. They are full of harsh chemicals. Do you really want your family to breath  that? A better solution for those smells is to use all natural essential oils. I’m going to show you the best essential oils and why you should use them.

Lemon Essential Oil

There is nothing better than the smell of fresh smelling  lemon essential oil to remove the stale odor. The reason it works so well is that it neutralizes bad smells. The citric acid in lemon oil is better than just about anything else and it’s especially good at eliminating food odors. Many people use lemon essential oil in the kitchen to remove bad odors coming from trash cans, dishwashers and garbage disposals. You can simply put a few drops directly into the area or you can use a diffuser in the kitchen.

Lavender Essential Oil

On your next wash day, put 4 to 6 drops of lavender essential oil into each load. Sometimes I leave my clothes in the machine for a couple of days and if have lavender in the load, I don’t get that musty odor because lavender’s anti-mold property eliminates it. The lavender will keep your clothes smelling fresh for days and using it on your bed linens will help you sleep better too because of lavender’s calming properties.

I like to have a clean and fresh home and there are just some rooms in my home that tend to not be the freshest and have some odors in them, like the bathroom. It can be hard for me to keep my bathroom perfectly fresh and that is why I really love the new air freshener that I got for it. The air freshener allows me to always have a fresh space.

With my air freshener for the bathroom, I no longer have to worry about having any nasty odors in there. The air freshener is also really great for the kitchen also, like when I have been making food and the odor of the food just won’t leave. I no longer have to leave windows open all the time or to do other things to try to freshen up the space.

A scented air freshener has proved to be the perfect solution for me and I am so glad that I found it. The air freshener makes it really easy for me to get the freshest clean for my home and to not worry about any odors anywhere. I can even use the air freshener in my closet to make sure that I am not smelling shoes or sweat from the laundry.
