I love essential oils. I use tea tree oil regularly in my DIY household cleaner for everything from cleaning kitchen countertops to disinfecting my bathrooms (and in a house with three boys – my toilets need a lot of disinfecting).
Lavandar is another favorite to mix in with a little jojoba oil for a calm, relaxing bath or body lotion.
But so many of these essential oils can be used for so much more. For instance, lavandar can be used as an insect repellant, while eucalyptus can be used as a deodorant.
