Homemade Natural Antibacterial Kitchen Cleaner

The peppermint and orange oils in this cleaner not only cancel out any vinegar scent, but also add antibacterial properties – making it perfect for wiping down kitchen surfaces.  It’s also much safer to have around the house with children than commercial kitchen bleaches.


300ml of boiled, cooled water

60ml white vinegar

10 drops peppermint oil

10 drops orange oil


Measuring jug


Spray bottle


Simply boil a kettle, measure out 300ml of the water into a measuring jug and add the other ingredients.  Stir gently to combine, then leave to cool.  Funnel the contents into a spray bottle and use to clean kitchen surfaces with a washable cloth.

Seasonal Recipes: Whipped Coconut Lotion with Frankincense and Vitamin E.

This coconut body lotion is really quick and easy to make, and results in a lotion with a light, soufflé-like texture.


1 cup coconut oil, room temp
1 teaspoon vitamin E oil
5 drops essential oil of your choice (effective essential oils for skin lotions include lavender, frankincense and geranium)

Whip for 6 mins in an electric mixer, pour into an ambient-temperature jar (so it doesn’t return to oil-like consistency)

Stores well for over six months – on really hot, sunny days, place in the fridge.
