Looking for some easy natural cleaning recipes for your home? I love to make all natural home cleaning products with essential oils for two reasons–they're inexpensive, simple to make and keep the harmful, harsh cleaning products out of our home.

A Few Notes About These Natural Cleaning Recipes
Before we delve into the recipes, I wanted to share a few things:
1) These are multi-use home cleaning recipes.
Although a particular natural cleaning recipe may be featured for one area, many of these natural home cleaning recipes can be used in multiple rooms of your house.
2) All of these natural cleaning recipes use essential oils.
These DIY home cleaning recipes use the power of essential oils (along with a few other key ingredients) to clean and sanitize. Rocky Mountain Oils are my favorite because their oils:
- are high quality (read about their testing here),
- are 100% guaranteed with a 90-day return policy (simply return them if you don't like them!),
- are shipped for free
- can be purchased one at a time and direct from the company (no consultant needed).
I've found Rocky Mountain Oils' staff to also be incredibly knowledgeable and helpful (they wrote the formulas behind the recipes, and I'm linking to them with permission).
For your reference, here are the essential oils used in these all natural home cleaning recipes :
- Citrus Blend
- Immune Strength
- Tea Tree
- Clove Bud
NOTE: This is a list of all the oils needed for all the recipes listed here. Feel free to grab just the essential oils for the natural cleaning recipes you're making.
