Add a tablespoon of Epsom salt to the bottom of a spray bottle, then add 15-to 20 drops of your chosen essential oils, (You can mix essential oils together) let that sit for a few moments allowing the salt to absorb the oil (This allows for better oil and water distribution and absorption)
Fill the bottle with half vinegar and half water.
And don't forget to shake-shake-shake!
This method is a simple and safe way to make your own cleaning solutions.
Tip: I like to mix the citrus family together when making my own formulas.
I recommend purchasing Therapeutic grade essential oils such as -Young Living- and Doterra.
(Therapeutic oils retain the highest purity possible during the extracting phase)
