What are the best essential oils for spring? 

With so many different essential oils, it can be hard to know which oils are best for what. We put together our must-have essential oils for the spring season. From deep cleaning your home to allergy relief, learn which oils are best for your needs.

  1. Eucalyptus
  2. Lemon
  3. Citronella
  4. Basil
  5. Bergamot
  6. Geranium
  7. Tea Tree

If you suffer from seasonal allergies, Eucalyptus is for you. With a crisp, fresh, and cooling aroma, Eucalyptus helps open up the nasal passages, making breathing easier. This essential oil is especially helpful if your allergy symptoms cause sinus congestion, upper respiratory discomfort, or allergy-related headaches. 

Tip: Place 2-3 drops of Eucalyptus on your shower floor. The shower’s heat will vaporize the oil and help alleviate congestion and open up your airways.

Spring Cleaning Essential Oil Recipes 

Break out the brooms, mops, and trash bags – it’s time for Spring Cleaning! Instead of reaching for store-bought disinfectants loaded with harsh chemicals, make your own natural, safe DIY spray with a few simple ingredients! Essential oils like Lemon and Tea Tree have purifying properties that make them perfect for household cleaning. 

We recommend using a dark-tinted glass bottle to protect the essential oils in the spray from sunshine. Another reason to use glass instead of plastic is that essential oils can corrode plastic over time, especially if they’re undiluted, damaging both the spray and the bottle.

Spring Cleaning Spray

  • 200 ml white vinegar 
  • 20 drops Lemon
  • 20 drops Tea Tree
  • Glass Spray Bottle 

Mix the essential oils and white vinegar and shake well to combine. Spray on surfaces around your home like kitchen counters and bathroom sinks to easily wipe away grime, grease, and germs!
