    Cedar Citrus Bath Salts Help You Sleep when You Have a Cold

    by Andrea Butje on January 04, 2016

    For those of you feeling under the weather or if you have a cold, it can be tough to feel rejuvenated and inspired for new beginnings. Do you have some favorite "feel better" practices for that?

    I often suggest taking a warm bath with comforting, decongesting essential oils. The warm water helps sore, achy muscles release tension, so your body feels more relaxed, and the essential oils help open your sinuses, so it’s easier to sleep when you have a cold.

    Natural Cleaning Tips

    December 12, 2011

    Here are a few fun natural cleaning tips from my eBook, Essential Living: Aromatherapy Recipes for Health and Home. Cutting Boards To keep wooden and plastic cutting boards free of bacteria, use a few drops of Lemon essential oil (Citrus limon). First, wash the board with hot water and castile soap. Then put about five drops of Lemon essential oil on a clean sponge and wipe the board vigorously, front and back. A nice side effect is that the sponge is now also clean and bacteria free! Floors Use hydrosols and hot water on the floors. Any mop will do, but we suggest mops with a removable terry cloth cleaning surface. They’re great for cleaning hardwood floors, ceramic tile, marble, and vinyl. They also work well on ceilings, walls, and windows. The terry cloth cover is removable and machine washable. When cleaning floors, soak the terry cloth cover (or regular mop) in hot water. Squeeze the water out, then pour a cap full (a few tablespoons) of Lavender hydrosol or Sweet Grass hydrosol directly onto the mop. Deodorizing Spray for Trash Makes: One 16 oz (480 ml) spray bottle Ingredients:
 15 oz (450 ml) water 1 oz (30 ml) white vinegar 20 drops Peppermint essential oil (Mentha piperita) 30 drops Orange essential oil (Citrus sinensis) 30 drops Lemon essential oil (Citrus limon) […]
