5 Essential Oils Hacks to Use in Your Apartment

For over 1,000 years people have been using essential oils. While they go untested in many modern research facilities, there are certainly oral testimony of their power. There are many benefits of using essential oils in your apartment. You can use them to help clean the air and your apartment. You can also use them to boost energy and to keep your mind focused. Here are some ideas if you want to give them a try.

Use Essential Oils to Clean the Air

You can end up with all types of funky odors in apartments from laundry, cooking and everyday activities. In fact, the air without any home is usually more polluted than the air outside. Given the proximity of our Otarre Pointe Apartments to beautiful natural resources, many people opt to stick with woody essential oils like tea tree and eucalyptus as they have a wonderful fragrance while helping to purify their air. Others opt for a more citrus-based blend containing orange, sweet grapefruit, and lemon.

Employ Them to Clean

In addition to using essential oils to make your apartment in Cayce, SC, smell better, many people use them to clean. You can easily make your own all-purpose cleaner that will clean most surfaces in your home by combining ½ cup vinegar, 2 cups water, 1 teaspoon castile soap and 20 drops lemon essential oils. You can also make a great bathroom cleaner that will clean any surface in your bathroom by combining two cups warm water, one tablespoon baking soda, two tablespoons castile soap, 30 drops tea tree oil and 20 drops sweet orange essential oil in a glass spray bottle.

Boost Energy

Many of our apartment dwellers find that they are always tired. Using essential oils combined with a carrier oil can help boost moods when applied like perfume or cologne. You can also choose to heat it in a diffuser to help everyone in the apartment have more energy. Some of the best essential oils for boosting energy include orange, rose, grapefruit, rosemary, and pine. If you choose to use it on your body, then test it in a small area first as a very few people can be allergic.


Essential oils can also be used to help you focus better. Some studies have even indicated that people with attention deficit hyperactivity disorders can be helped with essential oils. The best ones to use if you need to increase your ability to focus include Roman chamomile, lavender, and mandarin.
