Spring Cleaning – Part 2

Spring Cleaning – Part 2

Today we are going to talk about Tea Tree Essential Oil. It is truly an ‘essential’ for the household when it comes to ‘spring cleaning’ and a good essential oil to have on hand year round.

Tea Tree (Melaleuca alternifolia)

Tea Tree Essential Oil Organic (1/3 oz)

Tea Tree Essential Oil is antiseptic, anti-infectious, and antiviral. It is fungicidal and acts as a parasiticide. Tea Tree Essential Oil has a medicinal aroma that will leave your home smelling fresh and clean. It fights bacteria and mildew safely and naturally.

Try Tea Tree Essential Oil as a toilet bowl cleanser. Mix together: 1/2 cup Baking Soda, 1/2 cup Distilled White Vinegar, and 10 drops Tea Tree Essential Oil. Pour this mixture into your toilet bowl and leave for 10-15 minutes. Then use a toilet brush to scrub bowl and flush.

Tea Tree Essential Oil can also be added to a tub and tile scrub mixture. Using a funnel, pour 2 teaspoon Borax, 1/2 teaspoon Liquid Castille Soap, 1/2 cup Distilled White Vinegar, 30 drops Tea Tree Essential Oil, and 3 cups Hot Water into a spray bottle. Shake well to mix. Put on your gloves, spray surface to be cleansed, and scrub with a sponge. When finished, rinse with hot water. Step back, sniff, and enjoy your fresh, clean bathroom.

Another use for Tea Tree Essential Oil is in your mop water. In a 2 gallon bucket, mix: 1 cup Distilled White Vinegar, 2 teaspoons Liquid Castille Soap, 10 drops Tea Tree Essential Oil, 1 gallon hot water. Mop your floors as usual. No need to rinse, just let it air-dry.

You can add other Essential Oils to this mixture for different aromas: Grapefruit, Lemon, or White Thyme. All three contain antibacterial properties. Just add 10 drops of your chosen Essential Oil to the mixture above. We will discuss some of these Essential Oils further in later blogs.

Place 6-8 drops of Tea Tree Essential oil to a cotton ball and place these anywhere in the home that mold and mildew are prone to grow.

Happy Spring Cleaning!
