Blend your own household cleaning products using essential oils to remove dirt, grease, bacteria—and toxins.For years people have used essential oils in a holistic approach to health. Now, with the rise in awareness of toxins in common household products and health issues such as multiple chemical sensitivity, essential oils are gaining momentum as household cleaning agents.

“Natural cleaning options have received a lot of focus in recent years to help reduce overall toxic chemical exposure. Homes on average contain more than 150 hazardous products that together contain hundreds of different chemicals,” says Jennifer Pressimone, a holistic aromatherapist and owner of JennScents Inc. of Clermont. She says such chemicals increase cancer risks and the risk of accidental poisonings.
