Essential Oils – True Green Cleaners

The term “Green Cleaner” describes non-toxic, environmentally safe cleaning agents that contain

natural, bio-degradable ingredients. These types of cleaning products are growing in popularity by leaps

and bounds and should be considered for use by all people, especially those people with kids, pets, allergies or a compromised immune system.

Common commercial cleaners  often contain harsh chemicals, air pollutants and unnatural fragrances.

According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), in some areas of the country, the air quality

inside the home is twice as dangerous as the air quality outside the home. To fully understand the

potential health risk of using common commercial household cleaners, simply pick one up and read the

fine print on the label. You will easily see bold statements written entirely with capital letters, such


  1. “precautionary statements: hazards to human and domestic animals.”
  •  “caution: may cause eye irritation, avoid contact with eyes.”
  •  “first aid: if sprayed or splashed in eyes,immediately remove contact lenses, and rinse eyes with plenty of water, for at least 15 minutes.”
  •  “storage: store in areas inaccessible to small children.”
  •  “disposal: if not refilling, rinse thoroughly and discard in trash or recycle.”

Still don’t believe me? Pick any one of the chemicals listed as an “Active Ingredient” or an “Inert

Ingredient” and locate the material safety data sheet for that chemical. According to Wikipedia, “MSDS

(Material Safety Data Sheets) are a widely used system for cataloging information on chemicals. MSDS

information may include instructions for the safe use and potential hazards associated with a certain

chemical”. They are easy to find by typing into your favorite search engine the words “Material Safety Data Sheet” followed by the chemical’s name, “Alkyl Dimethyl benzyl ammonium chlorides,” for example.

This will also provide a little bit of free entertainment. Like opening a birthday present or

finding a chest of buried treasure, when opening a MSDS be prepare for many surprises just around the

corner. You will learn things like, whether or not that particular ingredient is flammable or better yet

it may even be explosive. You can also learn about first aid procedures, spill or leak procedures,

additional health hazards and about certain chemicals that may be “incompatible” with the chemical in your household cleaner. In case you missed that last part, you can also learn about the potential hazard that exists when you combine all of the chemicals from two or more different commercial cleaners. Unfortunately, to get two complete cleaner chemical lists, you would first have to take time to read both labels and who has time for that?

In our world, where most people look for the magic bullet solution and the quickest, easiest way

out, the simple thing to do is to stop using commercial cleaners and begin using essential

oils. They are true “Green Cleaners.” They can make your house sparkling fresh, crispy clean and extremely pleasant smelling, while also working hard to promote a healthy environment. Essential oils can be extremely inexpensive, like the original safe cleaners: baking soda and vinegar. But, they can also provide dramatically better fragrances, accompanied by a list of additional benefits. Here are a few

essential oils that truly work well as household cleaners. Try them! You may just fall in love.

 Tea tree (Melaleuca Alternifolia) is a common disinfectant. It possesses a crisp, medicinal scent

that screams clean. It is also anti-viral, anti-bacterial, anti-fungal and anti-parasitic.

 Eucalyptus (Eucalyptus Globulus & Eucalyptus Radiata) is such a common disinfectant that it has

found a home in such mainstream products as Vicks VapoRub. Like Tea Tree it also has a crisp, medicinal

scent. It may be used as an all purpose cleaning agent and by adding a few drops to your washing

machine, you may even kill dust mites. It is anti-viral, anti-bacterial, anti-parasitic.

  Lavender (Lavendula Vera Officinalis) contains an extremely pleasant floral scent and has been known to keep moths away from clothes and closets. It is also a nice addition to any load of laundry. Use a couple of drops on a wet washcloth in the dryer. It can be used in wood floor-washing water and it can be used to scent linen water. Add several drops to any spray bottle filled with water and shake well before use. It is anti-viral, anti-bacterial and anti-fungal.

 Orange: Quite possibly no scent is more universally clean than the citrus sensation of orange. This

cleaner has taken the Green Cleaning world by storm It might even be the single most promoted Green

Cleaning agent. Add a few drops to your laundry or your spray bottle of water and shake well before use. It should help get tough stains out and may reduce the elbow work necessary to cut through grease. It is anti-bacterial and known to kill E.Coli on contact.

 Lemon (Citrus Limonum): Quite possibly no scent is more universally clean than the citrus sensation of orange, except of course, lemon. Like orange oil, lemon oil is a great addition to a spray bottle of water. It is also excellent for furniture when mixed with a little olive oil. After applying lightly to furniture, give your furniture a nice shine by buffing it with a clean cloth. It is anti-bacterial and anti-viral and is known to fight the flu.

Pine: Think about the number of commercial cleaners containing a pine scent. It smells fantastic and works even better. This floor cleaner can go into any bucket of washing water for the bathroom or kitchen. It can also be added to baking soda and then sprinkled directly on carpet for a vacuum deodorizer that is second to none. It is anti-viral and anti-bacterial and is also known to fight the flu.

effective and most importantly safe. Begin taking your health and safety seriously. Stop relying on
