Getting Back to the Basics of Cleaning

Recently I have been experiencing reactions to commercial cleaners. It is more than just tearing of my eyes but also it has been effecting my breathing.

I started cleaning with lavender essential oil around fifteen years ago. I mix a cup of cleaning vinegar ( found mine at Walmart) with 2 gallons of hot water, pour a 1/4 cup of Castile soap or Dawn,  add 10 drops of lavender essential oil in a mop bucket to clean my floors. Sometimes I blend peppermint essential oil with the lavender or use lemon essential oil with, tea tree and peppermint.
Mix in a mop bucket and rinse afterwards.
