I am always seeking ways to make my home, and those of my Residential Cleaning clients, smell fresh and lovely, without the fake smell of chemical scents. After doing some research and testing different products, I focused on essential oils,. With my home cleaning services company in Jacksonville, Fl in mind, I now make my own essential oil sprays. I use these to scent sinks in both the kitchen and bathrooms , Somehow sinks SING, when scented, and fill their surroundings with this scent. I specifically recommend Eucalyptus, if you go for minty scents.
Straight peppermint is too sweet/toothpaste smelling. On the fruity side, most citruses are great, Lemon, Orange, Grapefruit. And a good clean floral scent that is not too “powdery” like roses, is a good quality Lavender. Mix about 20 drops of the oil with a teaspoon of salt, to emulsify it, and then mix with water and place in a spray bottle. Glass is best. You can buy generic glass spray bottles online, on amazon. I get them by the dozen on amazon.com for an amazing price, and you get a wide choice of sizes.
Wash your hands in a scented sink bowl and… breathe deep! Also, check my related post on plant based, eco-friendly cleaning products.
