ALL PURPOSE CLEANER
Combine into a glass spray bottle:
2 cups distilled water
¼ cup castile soap
15 drops of lavender, peppermint, or orange essential oil (or combination of those—personally I love the mix of all 3)
NATURAL ROOM FRESHENER
Put 2-3 TBS of baking soda in a coffee filter and add 5-8 drops of your favorite essential oils. I prefer lavender and peppermint or lavender and citrus scents. Secure the coffee filter with a rubber band and place this little “sachet” in various inconspicuous places around your house. I put them in corner of my bedroom, bottom of a trashcan, or in clothing drawers. This is a great and simple deodorizer for your home!
