Essential oil cleaning product

In this post, I'm going to share a very simple but very powerful essential oil cleaning product. But this is more than a cleaning product.

I'll include:-

  • An easy recipe,
  • What the essential oil cleaning product is used for,
  • Four side benefits to using the essential oil cleaning product,
  • Cautions and contraindications to the essential oils.

Here's the recipe for the essential oil cleaning product


  • 500ml water
  • A teaspoon (5ml) washing up liquid,
  • 1 drop of Lemon essential oil,
  • 1 drop of Lavender essential oil,
  • 1 drop of Geranium essential oil.

Lemon is anti-bacterial, anti-viral, and it puts a beautiful shine on windows, mirrors and brass/chrome fixtures like taps and shower fittings. Plus, it lifts the mood.

Lavender and Geranium are also anti-bacterial and anti-viral; Lavender balances the mood and Geranium is stimulating and anti-depressant.

I was very surprised when I found out just how effective this essential oil cleaning product was. I’ve tried quite a few, as we all have (mainly my own essential oil cleaning products which I love!) But this one just beats everything else I’ve tried.

It’s great for cleaning: -

  • Counter tops
  • Windows,
  • Mirrors,
  • Chrome/stainless steel fittings
  • Wooden floors,
  • Ovens and cookers (even when you should have cleaned them ages ago!)
  • Sinks,
  • Showers,
  • Wood,
  • Tiles.

All you need in one cleaning product; all you need to do is spray and wipe down and get the job done really quickly.

Four side benefits to using this lovely essential oil cleaning product. 

The anti-bacterial and anti-viral properties of the essential oils kill airborne bacteria, viruses and other pathogens protecting everyone against colds, flus, tummy bugs and any infectious or contagious conditions.

The essential oils are uplifting, stimulating and mood balancing, so they lift the mood.

While you’re cleaning, you’re spreading a beautiful aroma, so no more synthetic air fresheners (that can be bad for your health)

The essential oils are great for deterring insects including pesky flies. And I found entirely by accident that it will also kill flies. I was using the cleaning product and there was a fly in the room. And without thinking I sprayed it, and it died very quickly.

Contraindications to the essential oils

Most people, very reasonably, assume that what’s natural is good, and the more, the better. I know I did! Or that if you’re not using essential oil products on the skin that they can’t do any harm.

Essential oils are natural but highly concentrated. And inhaling them has very powerful effects not only mentally/emotionally but physically as well. However, if you use them correctly and follow a few basic rules, and they’re 100% safe.

Don’t use Lavender or Geranium essential oils around or for pregnant women. And don’t use Lemon essential oil, even diluted, on skin that will be exposed to bright sunlight or a sunbed within the next 48 hours.

I hope you enjoyed this post, and here's wishing you a spotless gleaming aromatic house using this essential oil cleaning product that will enhance your mood, and protect you from bacteria, viruses and other pathogens.

I'm Jenny

From the time I started reading aromatherapy books I couldn't believe how essential oils changed my life. My family had fewer doctor's visits, my house smelled divine, I had quick fixes for stress and grumpy days, I could rustle up a remedy for PMT, chicken pox, headaches and lots more.

I've been an aromatherapist and an aromatherapy tutor for over 20 years. In 2017, I developed exclusive certified and insurable online holistic training courses. My unique system ensures my students are fully supported, so they learn to give outstanding treatments. My tag line for my online courses is “online but not alone”

I love developing resources and content for aromatherapy enthusiasts of all levels. As well as this blog, I've written a book called Aromatherapy for Common Ailments, I have a podcast called the Aromatherapy Business Podcast and I run a free membership on Facebook called Aromatherapy and Holistic Business Success which is a great place to network and get your questions answered about all things holistic.
