Spring has officially sprung, and we are so ready to trade in our winter parkas for sundresses and flip flops! Okay…maybe we’ve got a little while to go before it’s warm enough for a sundress, but we’re getting closer! The snow’s melting, flowers are blooming, and the scent of fresh possibilities is in the air. So, what are some fun ways to celebrate the changing of seasons and get ready for spring? We have some ideas!
Break out the brooms, mops, and trash bags – it’s time for Spring Cleaning! Instead of reaching for store-bought disinfectants loaded with harsh chemicals, make your own natural, safe DIY spray with a few simple ingredients! Essential oils like Grapefruit, Oregano, Lemon, and Tea Tree have purifying properties that make them perfect for household cleaning.
When choosing what kind of spray bottle to purchase for your DIY cleaning spray, we recommend using a dark-tinted glass bottle to protect the essential oils in the spray from sunshine. Another reason to use glass instead of plastic is that essential oils can corrode plastic over time, especially if they’re undiluted, damaging both the spray and the bottle.
Here’s one of our favorite recipes, just mix the following ingredients together in a glass spray bottle!
DIY Spring Cleaning Spray
🍋 1 cup white vinegar
🍋 10 drops Lemon
🍋 10 drops Tea Tree
🍋 Glass spray bottle

What do you think of when you picture spring? We envision birds chirping, grass growing, and flowers blooming! Here are a few essential oils that embody spring and why we love them.
This lovely blend is the perfect combination of floral, citrus, and woodsy. When you’re feeling overwhelmed, inhaling Blossoms can help calm and center your mind.

This highly versatile essential oil is extracted from the bergamot fruit and has a citrusy, fresh, floral scent. Bergamot can be used for household cleaning, in body lotions and perfumes, and can even be diluted and applied topically as an astringent. Wondering what the FCF stands for? Furocoumarin free! We take out these phototoxic constitutes that naturally occur in Bergamot so it’s safe to use in the sun.
Often called “queen of essential oils,” Rose can be used in perfumes and skincare routines and is thought to be an aphrodisiac. It is highly concentrated, so a little goes a long way. Rose presents a strong floral, blooming scent, which uplifts the spirit and invites harmony. Rose oil is a fantastic choice to incorporate into your daily skincare routine, especially for those with dry, sensitive, or mature skin.
