Don't you wish your house had that fresh spa smell when walked in the door? There used to be a candle that replicated that wonderful aroma, but like all good things, it was discontinued. Not to worry, over on TipNut there are nine simple recipes involving eucalyptus that you can whip up to use as household cleaners.
Here are two to get you started and a link to the entire collection:
Linen Spray Freshener
1/2 cup Distilled Water
1/2 cup Vodka
10 drops Eucalyptus oil
- Mix ingredients and pour into a spray bottle. Shake before use.
Eucalyptus Freshener Spray
