DIY Scour Power

Popular scouring powders contain ingredients known to cause cancer, respiratory distress, lymphoma, lung cancer, lung tumors, allergies and skin irritations.

We can create our own scouring powder at home with affordable and simple yet very effective ingredients.

What you will need:

  • Essential Oils
  • Baking soda (alum-free preferred)
  • Glass sugar shaker (available at local dollar stores)

How to:
Fill the glass sugar shaker with baking soda, then add 25 total drops of Essential Oils. 

I recently used 20 drops of Lemon and 5 drops of Eucalyptus globulus, which are antiseptic and anti-infectious. This combination smells fresh and light, too!

Suggested Essential Oils:

  • Pine
  • Lime
  • Lemon
  • Orange
  • Thieves*
  • Tea Tree
  • Peppermint
  • Citrus Fresh*
  • Christmas Spirit*
  • Eucalyptus globulus or radiata

Suggested Use:
Shake well before using. Simply sprinkle on surface (linoleum floors, sink, tub, shower, toilet) and clean using a scrub sponge, then rinse with warm water. For deodorizing carpets, simply sprinkle on carpet, wait 1 hour, then vacuum.

Safety & Storage:
Avoid direct eye contact. Store in cool, dark cupboard out of reach of children and pets.
