Natural Disinfectant Recipe: Banish Germs in your home with Essential Oils

Ah-CHOO! Your child’s friend walks into your home and sneezes. Thousands of germs go flying into the air.

It’s cold and flu season, and contact with germs is inevitable. But there is a way to purify the air in your home naturally!  Certain essential oils, like doTERRA Wild Orange oil, have natural disinfectant properties.

You probably know that essential oils can make your house smell terrific, but they can also be diffused into the air to clean the air you breathe!

natural disinfectant recipe

How? Simply add a few drops of Wild Orange essential oil to any oil diffuser.  Run the diffuser for 1-2 hours at a time throughout the day to diffuse the Sweet Orange Oil into the air. The naturally disinfecting properties of the oil will help to clean the air of all those gross germs that come in every day!

Make sure not to leave the diffuser on too long, and never overnight.  I keep my diffuser in the family room where we spend most of our time, but ocassionally I’ll place it in my kids’ rooms for an hour during the day.
