Natural cleaners

I have an issue with chemical cleaners and scents, they make my head hurt. There comes a time though when you need something stronger then lemon juice and vinegar to disinfect. I have started to add a few drops of Thieves oil to my spray bottles and also to the soapy water for the floors and walls. The thieves leaves a nice scent behind and disinfects everything!!
I also will keep a pot of water simmering on the back of the stove with 10 drops of the oil.
Below is the recipe for the concentrated blend. Do NOT use this straight on your skin!! If I am going to use this on our skin I add a cup of jojoba or olive oil. I keep this on hand at all times.

Thieves oil

1 Tbsp clove oil
1 Tbsp lemon oil
2 1/2 tsp cinnamon oil
2 tsp rosemary oil
2 tsp eucalyptus

Mix all in a glass measuring cup. Then pour into a glass vial make sure to label the bottle!

    This is pretty cool stuff. We have to try this.
    Is there a place to go to get all the ingredients or can you get them online?
    Do you have more tips we can try out?
    I found this website by accident. I email you guys about buying a domain name for my small computer shop. It looked like you are not using it.
    Anyway, I am glad I found this site. I will bookmark it.
    Thanks,
    Shayne
