What you'll need
2 tbsp Castile Soap (shop here)
10 drops of Orange Essential Oil - Sweet & uplifting aroma, cuts grease, cleanses
5 drops of Cinnamon Essential Oil - Warm aromas, anti-bacterial, deter pests
5 drops of Clove Essential Oil - Spicy aromas, anti-bacterial, anti-fungal
Distilled Water (1 1/4 cups approximately)
Metallic Vinyl Label (optional)
In a 16 oz Spray Bottle, combine all of your ingredients and fill to top with water. Next, give it a good shake and clean away. Spray surfaces and use a cloth to wipe away germs, dust and spills.
You can also add 1/2 cup White Vinegar for extra cleaning & disinfecting power.
Feel free to adjust the drop amounts to your personal preference. If you'd prefer to use an 8 oz Spray Bottle, divide the recipe in half. Because oil and water don't mix, adding an emulsifier such as Castile Soap will help your essential oils stay suspended and evenly distributed within the mixture.
