I live in Florida. Summers can get very hot here, and I don’t like to spend all my time inside. I like to be outside—with the plants in my garden, taking walks, and just being in nature. Spending time in nature almost always makes me feel calmed and uplifted, and I love hot weather.

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.
