Do you know that you can enjoy the benefits of aromatherapy even during housekeeping?
Some time ago I started using essential oils in ironing water, approximately 6-7 drops per 150 ml. The results are amazing! Lavender is giving a wonderful scent to my clothes while at the same time it has antimicrobial and antifungal action. I also noticed that the use of lavender essential oil prevents the concentration of salt on the iron plate even when tab water is used instead of distilled. And do not forget that the difused vapour inhaled when ironing is bearing all the beneficial properties of the essential oils used.If you do not like the scent of avender you can use orange (especially for children’s clothes), eukalyptus, or juniper (very beneficial if you are ironing while having a cold).
Experiment with the essential oils of your preference and ironing will no longer be a dull household activity!
