DIY Disinfecting All Purpose Spray

Slowly but surely, I have been trying to replace my household cleaners and skin care products with all natural solutions. Of all of the things I use, this ALL PURPOSE SPRAY is by far my favorite; it smells great and it will clean even the toughest greasiest stove-top. The addition of essential oils makes this spray antimicrobial, meaning it not only kills bacteria, but it is also an antifungal, antiparasitic, and antiviral all in one!

I use lemon and orange essential oil with eucalyptus castile soap, but feel free to pick any combination of the oils listed:

LEMON | antiviral, antifungal, antispetic, and antidepressant

ORANGE | antiseptic, antifungal, antibacterial, great degreaser

EUCALYPTUS | analgesic, antibacterial, anti-infectious, antiviral, and expectorant

LAVENDER | antiseptic, antiviral, antibacterial, and antifungal

TEA TREE | antifungal, antiseptic, antibacterial, insecticidal

If you are skeptical about the oils check out these studies:

Tea Tree Oil: Scientific studies have been done showing its antibacterial actions and its promise in inhibiting certain flu viruses, combating staph infections, and even treating the herpes simplex virus.

Orange Oil:  A 2011 study showed that Valencia orange essential oil inhibited E. Coli and Salmonella during the refrigeration process of beef.
