Spring Cleaning with these Purifying Essential Oils
Easter is a great marker to kick off your spring cleaning. After a long winter of staying indoors, your house can really become disorganized and feel stagnant. Beyond just clearing out the clutter and deep cleaning before you guests arrive for Easter dinner you should consider clearing out the winter energy and detoxify the air in your home. Here are some great essential oils to diffuse to purify your home:
Clary Sage Essential Oil: Sage has been used for thousands of years to ward off bad spirits and clear out old energy. So if you are looking for a spiritual cleanse to get all the bad vibes out of your home so you can fill your space with positivity before your Easter guests arrive, diffuse some clary sage.
Lemon Essential Oil: The acidic properties of lemon are perfect for purifying your air and clearing out any bacteria or germs that may be floating around your home. The fresh scent is also very great at promoting energy and productivity, so it’s a great essential oil to diffuse when cleaning up.
Grapefruit Essential Oil: Another citrus that is great for detoxifying your home is grapefruit. Grapefruit essential oil has antiviral, antioxidant, and anti-fungal properties which can help clear out any germs, fungus, or viruses that are present in your home.
Peppermint Essential Oil: Peppermint essential oil is very good at removing toxic residue and great for clearing out dust and microbes from the air. The fresh scent also helps make your home feel cool and renewed. Plus, it has the added bonus of working to detoxify your body through inhalation, so it’s a two-for-one detoxifying essential oil.
Rosemary Essential Oil: Rosemary essential oil is great to add to a natural household cleaner. It has tons of antiviral, antibiotic, and anti-fungal properties. Diffused into the air it can help clear out residual toxins from the winter and the fresh herbal scent will help make your home smell like springtime.
Floral Scented Essential Oils For Easter
Now that you have purified the air, it’s time to diffuse something that will make your Easter guests feel comfortable and help trigger sense memories that remind them of springtime. Nothing says springtime like flowers, so we recommend when hosting Easter events you use a Nebulizing Diffuser to help your guests really feel the power of the spring season:
Lavender Essential Oil: Lavender is a great fresh scent to remind your guests of springtime. It also has amazing calming and antidepressant powers, which will help all your guests feel relaxed and at home in your house.
Rose Essential Oil: Rose has one of the most powerful sense memories of any flower. Roses trigger a range of sense memories from happy times in the garden to reminders of love and companionship. Rose also has calming properties which will make your guests relax and enjoy their time with you.
Ylang Ylang Essential Oil: A delicate, fresh scent, ylang ylang is the perfect floral scent for Easter. It’s sweet and delicious smell helps reduce stress and promotes happiness. If you want something that is both spring themed and uplifting, ylang ylang is the perfect essential oil to diffuse.
Jasmine Essential Oil: Jasmine is a rich exotic scent, with notes of delicate pollen in the undertones. It smells like new spring flowers and can be very powerful in a diffuser. Jasmine oil also promotes warmth, love, and feelings of friendship. It is a great oil to diffuse for any event you are hosting, but especially great for a spring holiday like Easter.
We also love the idea of making a custom Easter blend that uses some or all of these great floral scents. Morning Bloom essential oil blend by Organic Aromas is a must try!
Essential oils are perfect for the Easter holiday. First they can help you purify your home and make it ready for spring guests. Secondly, they can help your guests feel relaxed and trigger wonderful springtime memories. This year try diffusing some of these oils during the Easter holiday season to welcome a positive and happy spring season.
5 thoughts on “Spring is Here! Try These Essential Oils for Easter”
I prefer lavender oil because it is rich in antioxidants and phytonutrients; they are important for everyone!
I use lemon in my diffuser and raised an eyebrow about a thick stickiness you mentioned because lemon is not a sticky thick oil.
To not sound biased there are a couple other things to look at. Does your diffuser diffuse hot or cold? It is suggested that heat can damage and alter citrus oils.
Another suggestion would be to try cleaning the diffuser and see if that makes a difference.
Lemon and orange are natural cleaners so it’s weird that you are having that problem. However there can be a build up over time too.
I enjoy using lemon EO in my nebulizer but I find after using it a sticky thickness remains, easily clogging the unit. Any suggestions?
