Spring is full of the promise of new beginnings. New leaves on the trees. New blooms in the garden. Maybe new love. And as we take in all this newness, it makes us yearn for a new beginning in our homes. This Spring, freshen up your entire home using essential oils with these 6 Best Essential Oil Spring Cleaning Recipes.
There was a time before I embarked on this oily journey when Spring cleaning meant pulling out the bleach and other harsh, chemical-laden cleaners that not only assaulted our health but also our noses. Not any more!
Many essential oils have effective deep cleaning properties, and they smell good, too! So just in time for Spring, I’ve gathered up some of my favorite household deep cleaning recipes that are not only tried and tested but will be a sheer delight to your senses.

Bathroom tiles can be the worst to clean. All the soap scum and gunk just build-up and it requires some serious scouring action to cut through the grime. This cleaner features the gentle scrubbing power of baking soda teamed with Tea Tree and Thieves essential oils for extra cleansing and a delightfully fresh scent.
Baking soda is one of my go-to ingredients for all-natural, non-toxic household cleaners and when you combine it with Orange, Pine, and Tea Tree essential oils, your grimy, dirty oven doesn’t stand a chance! Not to mention, it smells a whole lot better than store-bought ammonia-based cleaners and it’s safer, too.
The Sal Suds and vinegar in this recipe work together to disinfect, cut grease, and really clean. During Spring cleaning, it’s great to use on areas under kitchen appliances, the washer, and dryer – anywhere yuck accumulates throughout the year. And Rosemary and Lemon essential oils leave the entire house smelling amazing!
Carpets undergo a lot of wear and tear and often need a little extra TLC. Baking soda and Purification essential oil is the dynamic duo in this natural carpet cleaner and deodorizer recipe that is formulated to neutralize and eliminate odors, clean the air of impurities, and freshen the room in the process.
You’re supposed to clean your mattresses once a month, yeah right. Once a year is a bit more realistic. Be sure to mix up an extra big batch of the Carpet Cleaner and Deodorizer above and follow these instructions for cleaning your mattress. Then follow up with this mattress refresher recipe. It takes less than a minute to make and you’ll love the fresh, clean scent of the Tea Tree and Lemon essential oil combo.
Let’s face it, no one likes to wash windows. And if you’re like me, you’ll procrastinate it down to once a year. Might as well choose the time of year it’s the most beautiful outside. Toss out that old bottle of “blue cleaner” and mix up a batch of this grime cutting solution made from vinegar, water, and fresh smelling Lemongrass essential oil. It smells like Spring!
