It makes your house smell so good, just like Christmas.

Pomander Ball Cleanser
(adapted from a recipe from Barbara Lucks)

Not only does this preparation clean but the essential oils disinfect and provide a natural, festive fragrance.

1 teaspoon Sweet Orange or Mandarine essential oil
a few drops of Clove Oil and Cinnamon Leaf oil
1 teaspoon washing soda
2 teaspoons borax
1/2 teaspoon liquid soap or detergent
2 cups hot water (to dissolve the soda and borax)
Combine the ingredients in a spray bottle. Shake to dissolve and blend the minerals. You can spray this cleaner onto a surface then leave it for 15 minutes before wiping it off, to give the essential oils antiseptic qualities time to work (makes 2 cups).

It will leave your house smelling like an old fashioned, clove studded pomander ball!

(REMINDER-This cleanser does have skin irritating oils in it! So don't use it if you're allergic. Don't use it on plastics, or at least test it because Orange Oil *can* dissolve plastics. And don't let baby or the pets take a swig.)
