Gaelyne's DIY Recipes for a Natural Deodorizer and All-Purpose Cleaner

My passion for all-natural products extends well beyond skin care. I love creating my own household products using simple, natural recipes, and I swear they work better than anything you'd find loaded with harsh chemicals. Keep reading for my DIY recipe for a subtly scented room spray, a natural deodorizer for gym bags, and an all-purpose cleaner that you can use on every surface of your home, without concern for pets and kids. 


Gaelyne's Natural Deodorizer:

When I created this natural deodorizer I had one goal in mind: I knew if it could neutralize the odor of my husband's hockey bag, then I'd have truly succeeded. Well, ask his hockey buddies and they'll tell you, he has the freshest smelling bag in the locker room! 

Makes 120 ml/4oz


10 ml vodka ( the higher the alcohol % the better)

20 drops lemon essential oil

10 drops rosemary essential oil

10 drops peppermint essential oil

(Alternate essential oil blend: 20 peppermint and 20 geranium)

Distilled or filtered water


In a 4oz bottle combine vodka and lemon, and essential oils. Shake to blend, then fill the bottle with water and shake vigorously to combine. Mist into the air. Shake well before each use. 


My All-Purpose Cleaner and Disinfectant:

I keep this all-purpose cleaner and disinfectant tucked under every sink in my home! Not only does it clean surfaces safely, it leaves a lovely, fresh aroma. 

You can use this disinfecting spray to clean kitchen counters, door handles, sinks, cutting boards and shelves. Test a small area first before using on new surfaces.

Makes 240ml (8oz)


15ml liquid castile soap (you can find it at a health food store)

15ml white cleaning vinegar

40 drops lemon essential oil 

35 drops pine essential oil

5 drop cinnamon essential oil

Distilled or filtered water


In an 8oz bottle combine the castile soap, vinegar, and essential oils. Shake gently to combine. Fill the bottle with water and shake well. Shake before each use.
