The Perfect Spring Cleaning Essential Oil Blend
Have you started spring cleaning yet? Want your home to smell FRESH and CLEAN without chemicals? Diffuse this essential oil blend while you’re cleaning, use it as your signature spring cleaning scent or what I do, do both! Either way, your home will smell clean, the scent will motivate you to keep cleaning, and you’re adding an all-natural scent to your home.
These three essential oils make a fresh and bright scent – bergamot and lemon add a lovely citrus scent and peppermint add the fresh scent that you need when spring cleaning. Bonus: peppermint can make you feel energized and awake – perfect to motivate you for spring cleaning!
If you’re diffusing, use the recommended drops for your diffuser – I use equal parts of each oil but you can play with the ratio.
The rule of thumb for scenting DIY cleaners is 3-10 drops essential oil per 16 ounces of liquid. Here are a couple recipes to get you started with – simply substitute this scent combo for the one in the recipe:
Laminate Floor Cleaner
Fabric Sanitizer Spray
Non-Vinegar Hardwood Floor Cleaner
Vinegar Hardwood Floor Cleaner
Window + Mirror Cleaning Spray
Marble + Granite Cleaning Spray
All-Purpose Disinfecting Cleaner
All Purpose Spray
Laundry – soften + freshen
Look for Plant Therapy essential oils in Clean Mama Home!
Always use caution around pets and children when using essential oils.
Where did you get that diffuser pictured above? It’s very pretty!

It’s from Young Living 🙂
I realized yesterday that YOU have reformed me! I was at the grocery store picking up a few things, and walked past a woman who was demonstrating room spray. She asked me if I was interested in hearing about her product, and I said “no thank you”. She said, “BUT, it’s only 23 cents per can and you can buy TWO!” My thought was, “46 cents to spray CHEMICALS and fake scents in my home? ….NO THANKS”. I didn’t say that to her, but I felt so proud of myself not adding something to my house that I didn’t want, wouldn’t use, and would “chemical up” the air in my home! I think I earned my CLEAN MAMA badge! BTW, just the idea of Bergamot, Lemon and Peppermint perked me up! LOL!

Glad to see you got your diffuser from Young Living. I use their oils all the time. While a bit pricey, they are so pure they actually save me money instead of buying the diluted grocery store brands. They also have some nice combo scents like Joy, Valor, Stress Away as well as seasonal smells like your recipe above.
