Today is a Sweet Orange day.
From all the essential oil scents Sweet Orange is my favorite maybe because it’s country of origin is Canada my homeland.
Sweet Orange is an excellent oil for when you are tired, fatigued, and mentally exhausted. The orange scent is very uplifting, calming, peaceful, energizing, mood enhancing, clean smelling.
Days like today when I wake up and I feel drained, exhausted and mentally fatigued from the moment I open my eyes I know it’s time to bring out the Orange oil and put it in the defuser. As I’m brewing my coffee the defuser is filling the house up with the energizing orange smell. I breathe in the smell deep, do some stretches and yoga moves in the kitchen while I wait for the coffee to brew. This always seems to loosen me up, wake up my body and mind. Puts my fatigue feeling down the drain and gets myself moving for the day.
When I am cleaning the house I always use Sweet Orange oil on my Swiffer Duster. You take the cloth duster and put three or four drops of oil on the top of the duster. The oil will soak into the duster a little bit but not enough to get on your furniture. I also like to put a drop or two on the backsides of the decorative pillows on the sofa. When the house is clean and smells good I find it very relaxing. It’s so nice to sit back and enjoy your home when you know if you have finished the task and you can now relax.
Friends always ask me, how do you keep your house so clean? It is simple really my theory is a clean house = a clean mind. Coming home from work exhausted to a clean house is exactly what you need. So each day when you have 10 mins, whip around the house and get those tasks done with the mindset you will be pleased and able to relax when you are done. Simple as that…..10 mins a day keeps the dust away.
Have a great day
