These days we are so overwhelmed with chemical exposure that it is essential to keep our homes as chemical free as possible, especially with the rise in reported allergies and chemical sensitivities.
Instead of using toxic cleansers to clean your home, you can make aromatic natural cleansers that can safely and effectively clean your home. The simple recipes below use safe, inexpensive ingredients you already have in your home, and Floracopeia Essential Oils. Watch the videos below and learn how to make these natural, aromatic cleaning products yourself.

Do-It-Yourself Video: Natural Scouring Cleanser
This is a great cleanser for counter tops, sinks and bathrooms.
- ½ cup baking soda
- 1 cup borax
- ½ cup sea salt
- 10-15 drops essential oil total: peppermint oil, white sage oil and tea tree oil
This cleanser is great for cleaning mold, or removing hard water stains. Just make a paste with water and gently scrub the surface you wish to clean. This cleanser is especially effective in cleaning the bath tub and toilet bowl. Test a patch surface first and remove sea salt from the recipe if it is too abrasive.
These products are not only natural, but they smell wonderful and create a more enjoyable experience when cleaning. Imagine pure pine essential oil fragrance filling your home, instead of that synthetic, car-freshener smell. What about real, refreshing lemon essential oil in your cleaners, instead of the flat chemical version that doesn’t do citrus justice? Not only do the essential oils clean, they also provide additional benefits in supporting our immunity to the germs and viruses we seek to clean from our homes.
