Try It Tuesday...Homemade Disinfectant Spray

Homemade Disinfectant Spray
Lately I've been experimenting with essential oils to remedy everything from better health to cleaning our home. It's amazing the benefits these oils have without having to use harsh chemicals and toxins. They've been around for years and you can read more about them here. But last week when the stomach bug hit my daughter I made sure to use my homemade disinfectant spray to clean the house! I used oregano essential oil to make my spray. Oregano is antiviral and antibacterial, among other properties, so it's a no brainer to use it as a disinfect spray. No virus, fungus or bacteria can survive in its presence making it one of nature's most powerful antibiotics. Better yet it only takes a few drops since it is so potent. I took this 4 oz. glass spray bottle and filled it with water and put 10 drops of oregano oil in it. A little goes a long me. Shake and spray...Germs go away! 


  1. I love the smell of essential oils. When I worked at Aveda, it was all I used. I love this idea. I hope Ryan is feeling better.

  2. We use Oil of Oregano when ever someone is getting a nasty juicy cough. Two or three drops in a glass of apple juice 2x a day. Nips it every time. It doesn't taste the best but it WORKS!!!!

  3. Oh wow, this is so good to know. I bet the oil smells great too. I like cleaning with lemon and vinegar.
