Making Your Own Antibacterial Spray

Herbs and essential oils can do much of the work around the house for us, especially when it comes to cleaning.

Making your own antibacterial spray is inexpensive and easy.

Start with a clean spray bottle.

Mint, lavender, tea tree, sage and rosemary are all bacteria fighting herbs. Combine 1 teaspoon of essential from any of those herbs to 1 cup of white vinegar. Vinegar is a good germ killer, and we use it to clean most surfaces.

Put your mixture in the spray bottle, give it a good mix and you are ready to go! We use this mixture to clean cutting boards, kitchen counters and the bathroom. The essential oils make cleaning a joy (well, almost!)

Rosemary, one of our favorite herbs.
