How to do aromatherapy with essential oils?
Mini Crock Pot Air Freshener: Purchase a tiny crock pot (they are very inexpensive) and put some water in the pot and add either essential oils or actual ingredients (cinnamon sticks, whole clove, lemon or orange peels) and let simmer. Add additional water as needed.
Quick and Easy Natural Air Freshener: This is one of the fastest ways to fill a room with the natural scents of aromatherapy. Put a bowl of boiling water on the kitchen counter, in the bathroom or any room you want to scent. It’s best to use a glass bowl. I just put the bowl of water in the microwave for 5 minutes and heat it. Add 1-9 drops of the essential oil of your choice to the boiling water and in a few seconds the entire area will be filled with a wonderful scent. It’s amazing how fast the scent fills the room! This is a good technique to use if company is coming over to scent your home in a hurry. This tip is by Valerie Ann Werwood, Author of The Complete Book of Essential Oils and Aromatherapy.
Pet Urine Odor: After getting a new Shihtzu puppy this year and trying so many things for the accidents, I finally found something that works great, is inexpensive and is natural too! First use paper towels to soak up as much as you can. Then pour some baking soda on the area and let sit for at least a half hour to absorb the odor. Next pour Peroxide diluted with some water over the baking soda and scrub the area.
Mold Killer Spray: Simply mix 2 teaspoons Tea Tree oil in 2 cups of warm water. Pour into a spray bottle and shake to blend. Spray the molded area. Let sit for around a half hour, then wipe with cloth. Do not rinse.
Freshen Your Mattress: I found an article on this and tried it myself and loved it. I love getting into bed at night smelling the soothing and relaxing scent of lavender. Put 12 drops of Lavender essential oil into a half cup of baking soda and mix. Sprinkle the mixture on your mattress and let sit for an hour or more. Then vacuum up the powder. You can use any essential oil you like but you will want to use one that is relaxing.
Cut Grease With Hot Towel: Grease and dirt build up on kitchen cabinets over time. To clean your cabinets, first heat a slightly damp sponge or cloth in the microwave for 20 to 30 seconds until it’s hot. Then spray with All Purpose Cleaner, then wipe the cabinets with the hot towel.
Vacuuming: Take 2 cotton balls and add a few drops of your favorite essential oil to the cotton balls and drop them in your vacuum bag to fill your home with your favorite aromatherapy scents while vacuuming.
