Purify Anti Everything Spray

Healthy Home Remedy | Clean, green surface spray

Slowly but surely converting our home space away from chemical nasties and onto homemade clean, green and natural products.

Happily sharing with¬†you today this little recipe from a recent “Detox Your Home Workshop” I was lucky enough to attend. How good is that?!

Just loving learning and sharing such good-for-us info .. more coming at you soon! ūüôā


This mix of gloriously pure essentials oil and good old white vinegar is my go-to for both kitchen and bathroom these days. No more gut-flora depleting anti-bacterial sprays .. just honest to goodness fresh, clean, happy homes.

PREP TIME:  5 mins    MAKES: 240-ish ml

Make Up your clean, green oil blend in a glass spray bottle (about 240 ml or 8 oz) with:-
10 drops lemon¬†‚Äď to act as an invigorating, refreshing antiseptic;
10 drops Purify¬†‚Äď to remove odours and for its powerful disinfectant qualities; and
10 drops On Guard¬†‚Äst
for its strong abilities to kill harmful bacteria, mould and viruses. 

Fill¬†the bottle with half white vinegar and half water and screw¬†the top on tightly. ūüėČ

Shake the bottle before each use to distribute the oils.

Apply liberally to anything you wish to leave squeaky clean and germ-free. Wipe down with a clean cloth or kitchen towel if necessary or just leave it to air dry.

Enjoy the goodness!

*This trio of antibacterial, antiviral, antiseptic,¬†anti-fungal,¬†deodorising, sanitising¬†and¬†wonderfully pure essential oils are just a few of those I am loving exploring¬†down here. We smell like a fabulously healthy spa retreat these days, and it’s good!¬†
