Excerpt from Green Cleaning with Essential Oils
Amber M. LaBorde (botanicallyrooted.com)
We love this idea for freshening up winter-weary carpeting.
Natural Carpet Cleaner
½-cup baking soda
8 drops of essential oil
Add the essential oil to the baking soda and mix thoroughly.
Sprinkle on carpet.
Wait 10 minutes, and then vacuum thoroughly.
Make fresh for each use.
Do not apply to wet patches on the carpet!
Of course I had to make some, right?
I had some ancient (25 year old) jasmine absolute laying around. This is a good application for old oils that you might not want to use on skin or diffused.
There are more natural cleaning ideas in the magazine, and even more will be in May/June!
