Lavender Vinegar for Cleaning

“I make a vinegar infusion with lavender or orange peel and distilled white vinegar (my ‘cleaning’ vinegar). I use it throughout the house and it has become my favorite cleaning product.”

“I use sodium bicarbonate with lavender oil in the kitchen and bath. It is great for neutralizing odors in addition to being a gentle, though very effective scrub.”

“Have you tried equal parts bicarbonate with powdered sage with a drip of essential oils of tea tree, lavender or peppermint as a tooth powder? Even my kids like it and their teeth are gleaming.”
