Spring is one of my favorite times of the year. In Pennsylvania, winter can be pretty cold, so the beginning of spring is such a sweet time, when the sun comes back out and people start to get outside and the city comes alive. However, spring can bring with it lots of cleaning and seasonal discomfort. Today I’m sharing some of my must-have essential oils for spring, to help with these problems and more!
Must-Have Essential Oils for Spring
Lavender, Lemon, and Peppermint: These oils are great for those of you who suffer from seasonal discomfort during this time of year! Combine all three in a roller bottle and use daily to enjoy the this time of year with minimal irritation. Lavender is also great to diffuse at bedtime, peppermint is cooling and energizing, and lemon is great for cleaning. This trio is perfect for spring!
Citrus Fresh: I love the smell of this essential oil blend! It contains orange, tangerine, grapefruit, lemon and mandarin essential oils as well as a touch of spearmint, which makes it smell like spring! Try combining with peppermint or lavender in a diffuser, or add a drop of Citrus Fresh Vitality to your water for a refreshing twist!
Purification: This is one of the best oils out there for cleaning! We used it just a few days ago to help rid our apartment of that “wet-dog” smell after we had a leak. Mix it with baking soda for a natural carpet deodorizer. Diffuse it outside to enjoy a dinner on the porch annoyance-free (it contains Citronella oil). You can also try adding it to a cotton ball and placing in a shoe to remove any smell!
Thieves Household Cleaner: I can’t sing the praises of this product enough! It’s plant-based and non-toxic, so it’s great for all you moms out there. (It’s totally ok to give your kids a spray bottle and have them clean their own bathroom – no need to worry about fumes or dangerous cleaning agents!) It also can replace your entire cleaning closet. That’s right – this one little bottle contains super-concentrated soap that can be diluted a number of ways to make sink & tile scrub, furniture polish, all-purpose cleaner, glass cleaner, and more!
LavaDerm Cooling Mist: This is perfect for those days when you don’t think it’s sunny enough to wear sunscreen and then regret it later! It contains aloe vera leaf extract and lavender essential oil to soothe overexposed skin, so it’s great for those first few sunny days after a long winter!
