10 Great Essential Oils to Clean the Bathroom
Here are ten essential oils to clean the bathroom:
- Oregano – It doesn’t smell good at all (unless you want your bathroom smelling like a pizzeria!) But this is the thing: it is the most powerful germ deterrer! Use a couple of drops, mixed in with other better-smelling oils and you will be totally fine.
- Lemongrass – I love the smell of lemongrass and it is used for purification, which is perfect for cleaning the bathroom!
- Tea Tree – This is a great health supporter! It spooks yuckies big time, so it is great to get your bathroom not only looking sparkling clean, but it will be actually sanitized naturally.
- Lime – This one is gold! It isn’t expensive at all, it also expels the icky stuff you don’t want in your bathroom and it smells AMAZING! You can’t go wrong with this one!
- Eucalyptus – There are 8 different types: globulus, radiata, blue, etc. Globulus has a very strong smell, compared to radiata. Eucalyptus Blue is the preferred one, but it is more expensive.
- Lemon – Same as Lime essential oil and other citrus essential oils, it is inexpensive, so you won’t feel bad flushing some of it down the toilet, literally (as you clean it, I mean).
- Pine – No, this is NOT comparable to the famous floor cleaner Pine-Sol. It is a bazillion times better! Try Pine and you will see. I love putting 3 drops of Pine and 3 drops of Peppermint in a small bowl in the bathroom. The smell goes all over the bathroom and it actually lasts for days! And I should mention that it smells amazing! It’s like I’m in a forest.
- Orange – Orange is also fun to use in the bathroom, but I actually use it more in the kitchen. I love the semi-sweet smell of it a lot, so uplifting. It is not as strong as Lemon and Lime, but it is just as effective in cleaning yuckies.
- Lavender – Ah! This one is amazing to use in the bathroom, especially right before a bath. It will relax you (and your kids) to sleep soundly all night. Lavender smells so good and it is a great cleaner!
- Rosemary – I like the smell, but not everyone will. Like Oregano essential oil, it can be kind of strong, but this is what you need when you want to save on the elbow grease, if you know what I mean. Simply mix it with a citrus essential oil and you should be fine.

I deep clean twice a month and they each take turns daily to swipe the sink and the toilet. I take care of the tub and the floors. That’s half the work for me!
