DIY "Pine-Sol" All-Purpose Cleaner

Who loves the smell of Pine-Sol? It's ok, raise your hand. I did. I loved the lemon, pine smell. Since switching our cleaning products over to non-toxic versions, I decided to recreate a non-toxic version of my beloved Pine-Sol. I typically use Thieves Household Cleaner for EVERYTHING, but if you are looking for some other DIY cleaner recipes, this is a great All-Purpose Cleaner.

Pine-Sol rates a big fat "D" on the Environmental Working Group website. No surprise, right? It rates as having concern for asthma/respiratory issues, skin allergies & irritation, developmental & reproductive toxicity and even cancer. Whoa!! Guys, this is why I blog and educate about this crap. We deserve to be in the know. Our families deserve better!!! Interested in learning more about creating a Healthy, Non-Toxic Home? Join my class HERE.

You can be relieved to know that you don't have to use chemical laden products to effectively clean your home. I promise, this cleans your home AND leaves your home smelling amazing... Lemon-pine fresh! Bonus... since it's completely non-toxic, your kiddos can help ;)

2 key ingredients that give this DIY "Pine-Sol" it's fabulous smell and cleaning power is Pine Essential Oil and Lemon Essential Oil.

Not only do pine & lemon essential oils have great cleaning abilities, they are both fabulous for creating energized feelings and for supporting healthy mood. Could anyone else use some energy while cleaning? Yea me too!! They are also wonderful for supporting mental clarity. Mom-Brain anyone? Another bonus... both are wonderful for supporting the respiratory system. So take some deep breaths as your clean. Your nose will thank you.

Ready to clean? Below is the recipe!

(Bonus: try adding 4 drops Pine essential oil and 2 drops Lemon essential oil to your diffuser for a lemon-pine fresh scent anytime!)
