Everything seems to be going into fall mode these days. The weather is cooling off and the trees are starting to turn colors. It’s a great time for nature, relaxation, and most importantly, fall cleaning! At Sponge & Sparkle, we offer different types of cleaning: from the most basic cleaning to detailed cleaning or from your office to your dorm! We have figured out that many people find that using essential oils in the fall makes their environment more comfortable and pleasant. Aromatherapy is more beneficial when practiced on a regular basis and this is a great time to get things done- from getting a house deep clean to sprucing up your home with fall decor! To add some spice to your home, here are some essential oils to bring out of the bottle during the fall season.
White Pine Essential Oil
This is an essential oil mainly found in Brazil (due to burning them there) and used for cleaning and general household use. It contains pine-sol, an antimicrobial agent, and has a powerful antiseptic and antifungal action. White Pine Oil has a good aldehyde derivative called limonene which can cause slight skin irritation but can be used safely in daily cleaning so make sure you wear some protective garment on if you have sensitive skin.
Cinnamon Essential Oil
Cinnamon essential oil is a powerful but extremely aromatic oil. It has strong antibacterial, anti-inflammatory, and carminative (nausea-reducing) properties. Cinnamon is generally recognized as a safe oil and has been used for centuries in traditional medicine. It is generally recommended for general cleaning purposes, as well as a means to combat the mold in homes that grows on the walls and clothing. If you have stubborn mold growing in your home, cinnamon oil is the way to go!
Clove Essential Oil
Clove essential oil is a very powerful antiseptic. It is commonly used for house cleaning and to treat skin conditions like psoriasis. It is used to disinfect and deodorize all surfaces, including the drains in your home. Not only that, but you can also use it to preserve your vegetables and meats. Clove oil is readily available and widely used as a household cleaning product. Cloves are easy to make at home, but buying essential oils or getting a bottle of essential oil starter will be the most cost-effective method.
Jasmine Essential Oil
Jasmine essential oil is a floral oil used mainly for house cleaning. The organic chemical-free and 100% natural wakashu oil is a known purifier. It removes organic impurities and has antibacterial properties that can remove airborne disease and bacteria that can affect the health and quality of the indoor environment. The oil can remove many different pollutants of different types like mold, mildew, bacteria, dust, dirt, lead, and other nasties while leaving your home with a scent similar to a rose which is why it is often called “Rosmarin.” Jasmine oil is a floral oil that has a warm, woody, and sweet aroma so get this organic eucalyptus essential oil for cleaning every single room of the home!

The lavender essential oil has a fragrant, soothing, and relaxing aroma that will transform your home into a homey space. With hundreds of beauty uses and healing properties, you can use this oil to ward off harmful bacteria, pests, and even viruses. The oil has antibacterial and antifungal properties, which make it great for use in the kitchen. You can spray it on the shelves, floors, or counters to kill harmful bacteria that can cause food poisoning. It can be used to wipe down the chopping board and as an antimicrobial spray to disinfect toaster ovens and microwaves. Lavender essential oil is a multi-purpose oil needed in every home.
Lemon Essential Oil
Lemon essential oil is a popular household cleaning product. It can be used to clean floors, countertops, and bathroom surfaces. It is also used to deodorize, clean, and as an essential oil for natural flavoring. Lemon essential oil is commonly found in some soaps, deodorants, toothpaste, skin cleansers, cleansers, moisturizers, and hair-care products. You actually might already be using it in your home! It is also frequently used in cleaning solutions and most types of cooking and baking. This oil is safe to use as an all-purpose cleaner. It is usually considered safe for cleaning the inside of your home or the interior of your car. The smell of lemon is what gives the oil its popularity; you won’t regret having this in your home.
Overall, essential oils are a great way to bring out the autumn moods into your home and work environment. One tip is to mix your oil with water before applying, in order to ensure that the oil is not diluted and that the full effect of the product is realized. During this time of the year, many people boost their immune systems, spend more quality time with family and friends or relax after a busy winter with some livestock activities. Fall is a great time for anyone looking for some extra mental energy or who wants to prepare for the winter holidays via physical activity or decoration ideas. It’s also a good time to review all of your accomplishments over the past few months so you can start thinking about how you’ll spend your winter leisure time now that you’ve had a busy autumn season!
