I use a vinegar based spray for my kitchen and bathroom and Windows and mirrors, and it's fabulous! Vinegar + water + a splash of dish soap + lavender oil to make it smell pretty. ;)

Natalie-have you tried oils from plant therapy? Great oils with good prices and free shipping!

We love our essential oils! I would highly recommend doing your research on cheaper essential oils (like ones from Whole Foods or BB&B) as their quality is also lesser, and typically include fillers and artificial elements. While it might smell good, they don't actually do your body/home any good and can actually cause more harm (headaches, exposure to phthalates, not actually disinfecting, etc.).

Just something to look into! :)

I use Young Living's Thieves cleaner for ALL my cleaning and it is just lovely! Smells like that wonderful cinnamon Christmasy scent <3 If you want to get a bottle, I can send you a link to sign up to order that and whatever other products you're interested in trying :)

I did a lot of research before deciding which brand was right for me. I chose YL because of everything I learned about their seed to seal promise. Yes, they are a bit pricey, but they last so long and have no shelf life. No fillers, no added ingredients...nothing. Their ethics are amazing too. (If you are in a bad mood you are not allowed to work the fields that day! lol. Positive vibes only!) And if you ever wanted to randomly show up for a tour to any of their farms, you can. No appointment necessary. So, they cant hide anything either. You have to be able to trust your brand:)

side note...I took advantage of that Grove collection deal too:) LOVE the glass bottle and the sponges!!
