Aromatherapy Blends for Home

Essential oils are a valuable germ-killing addition to cleaning solutions, and of course they make great air fresheners.

All-Purpose Cleaner
Add the following to a chemical resistant spray bottle (this is important, as essential oils may dissolve regular plastic) with at least 10 oz capacity. Shake the bottle before spraying. Don't use essential oils on varnished surfaces, wood furniture, or treated surfaces, since they may damage the surface. This cleaner is best for ceramic and porcelin surfaces, but you might want to test a small area before using it on large areas.
  • 7 oz water
  • 2 oz concentrated liquid non-bleach cleaner
  • 20 drops Lemon essential oil
  • 10 drops Grapefruit essential oil
  • 10 drops Cinnamon Bark essential oil
  • 10 drops Bergamot essential oil
Aromatherapy Air Cleaner
Use this blend for nebulizer diffusing. Essential oil diffusion with a nebulizing diffuser has been shown to reduce the amount of allergens and germs in the room.
  • 7 drops Eucalyptus Radiata essential oil
  • 5 drops Bergamot essential oil
  • 5 drops Lemon essential oil
  • 5 drops Tea Tree essential oil
  • 7 drops Cedarwood essential oil
  • 5 drops Cinnamon Bark essential oil

Some recipes call for grapefruit and eucalyptus oil, how would I make my own with these herbs?

Mckaila, these are aromatherapy recipes that use essential oils. I don't think you can translate them into herbal recipes, sorry!
