More and more of us are starting to shy away from commercial cleaning products.

Worse, some women have learned this lesson the hard way, dealing with allergies, irritations, or aggressive reactions caused by chemicals in cleaning products. The solution? As always, nature is so full of resources!

Moreover, natural alternatives to detergents and commercial solutions are free of side effects, full of benefits, and much more cost-effective. Today we tell you how eucalyptus essential oil has become our number one cleaning aid. See how we use it and what other strengths we can take advantage of!

Cleaning is easier with eucalyptus essential oil: 6 uses to remember

Due to its antiviral, antibacterial, antifungal, and antiseptic attributes, eucalyptus essential oil is ideal for a natural and efficient cleaning of the house.

Its invigorating aroma, fresh and camphorated, will give a welcoming, purified air to the house: instead of the often intoxicating smells of classic cleaning products, you will have a natural fragrance that supports well-being.

But how do we practically use eucalyptus essential oil to clean the house? We tell you in the lines below!

In the kitchen

Kitchen surfaces are among the most "badly treated" in the house. Dirt, grease, mold, soot deposits; we are often afraid to go into our kitchen, especially after cooking.

However, it is the eucalyptus essential oil that transforms this sacred space into an oasis of joy and warmth, fresh and energizing, which we mentally associate with the place where we prepare the meal.

All you need to do to get an effective cleaning spray for your kitchen is to combine 2 teaspoons of eucalyptus essential oil with one liquid detergent in a spray water bottle. Shake gently and you have the best product for cleaning wooden countertops, oven, sink, and stove.

On the floor

Especially when you have children or pets, chlorine should be missing from floor cleaning solutions. Instead, eucalyptus essential oil is a must!

With disinfectant, antiviral and antibacterial properties, this natural ingredient will give you those clean, tear-like surfaces that smell so fresh. Add 20 drops of eucalyptus essential oil in a bucket of hot water or directly on the mop and wipe the floors as usual.

You will find them brilliant and satisfied with such a treatment.

Universal detergent

The great advantage of eucalyptus essential oil is that it successfully participates in any cleaning mission. You can use it everywhere, as this universal detergent proves.

Mix half a cup of vinegar with a cup of hot water, 1/8 teaspoon of dishwashing liquid detergent, and 6 drops of eucalyptus oil for a solution in front of which the deposits of grease, limescale, and dirt have no chance.

Freshness for laundry

Did your clothes smell bad, "stale", and not even the conditioner can handle the situation? Use eucalyptus essential oil!

All you have to do is dose 20 drops in the detergent compartment of the washing machine and let this natural ingredient do its job. Your laundry will smell fresh and be so invitingly clean.

Other uses of eucalyptus essential oil in your home

We are sure that it only takes a little creativity to find other uses for eucalyptus essential oil. Here's what else it can do for you!

Anti-insect solution. Do you not tolerate insecticides because of their toxicity, or does your good heart prevent you from killing any living thing on earth? Either way, eucalyptus essential oil understands you.

Wipe the surfaces prone to attack by ants or beetles with water mixed with eucalyptus oil and you will quickly notice an improvement. What else can you do? Add 3–4 drops of oil to cotton pads and place them in these areas: the insects will run away in more favorable places.

Anti-mold. Mold is not only unsightly, but it is also extremely harmful to health. That's why you need to arm yourself against him. With antifungal properties, eucalyptus essential oil is your ally against these deposits. Add a few drops in a cup of hot water and then stir
