You can be versatile with the scents while still disinfecting and strong chemical smells won’t give you headaches! Here’s how you can make your own disinfectant spray with essential oils.
Essential Oil Disinfectant Spray
- 100g of high proof alcohol (70% or higher)
- 30 drops of essential oils (10 each of lavender, tea tree, and lemon)
- Distilled water can optionally be added to 96% alcohol to bring it down to around 70% concentration (use around 75g alcohol to 25g water.)
- Clean spray bottle
Mix together all of the ingredients in a clean spray bottle. Shake the bottle to completely combine the ingredients. You can use this natural homemade disinfectant around the home. Just spray onto the surfaces and then wipe them down with a clean cloth and allow it to dry.
