Besides their pleasant scent, essential oils can also be used to clean, disinfect and deodorize your home in a natural and non-toxic way. In this post, we present three simple and easy to make recipes for household cleaning products based on essential oils (and we take this opportunity to tell you about the benefits of these essential oils, naturally!)
