Our family has used Essential Oils for a 15 years or so for a handful of things. They are useful for all types of things--healing skin ailments, freshening the air, helping with headaches etc.
Tonight, after a afternoon/evening, I had a great need to clean. Yes, when things feel out of control in my life, I tend to go on a big cleaning event. It's all good--the Master Bathroom needed it badly anyway.
The problem is, I'm not that fond of cleaning the bathroom. And I particularly did NOT feel like cleaning the bathroom with white vinegar and Bar Keepers' Friend. I wanted something that smelled good--something that would perk me up.
Peppermint Essential Oils to the rescue! I threw a few drops of that into each sink with the Bar Keeper's Friend powder, cranked up my Praise and Worship music, and went to work. By the time I was done scrubbing both sinks, the bathroom smelled lovely, my heart felt a tad more cheerful, and my sinks glistened.
Win-win, if you ask me.
I kept at it till the whole bathroom was clean and sparkly again, and now I'm going to soon go enjoy taking a bath with the lingering scent of peppermint still hanging about.
