#TuesdayTip – Freshen your home while you Vacuum

Freshen your home while you vacuum | Healthy, Fit & Barefoot!

Today’s #TuesdayTip is a quick and easy tip to help you freshen your home while you vacuum! I love double-duty tasks like this! Today I’m using lemongrass essential oil. I know I use this one quite often, but it’s one of the most versatile and health-promoting essential oils, plus it smells fantastic and it’s safe for my cat. Lemongrass kills germs and is fabulous as a safe and natural deodorizer and air freshener.


I clean out the filter in my vacuum cleaner once every other month and just recently after I cleaned it out I added about 10-12 drops of Lemongrass essential oil to the filter before putting it back in the vacuum.

When I vacuumed our apartment the entire place filled with the wonderful aroma of Lemongrass. It smelled so fresh and clean! It actually made me want to vacuum even more! LOL


Try it with your favorite essential oil!
