This is a simple DIY All Purpose Cleaning Spray recipe that includes OnGuard, Lemon, and Melaleuca with Apple Cider or White Vinegar that you can use  to clean your entire home.   I use it everywhere - my kitchen, bathrooms, showers, counter tops, toilets, you name it. 

This DIY All Purpose Cleaning Spray is non-toxic, safe, and the perfect natural, green cleaning option for your whole home. 

If you're concerned about using it on your counter tops, I have used it on my granite counter tops safely for years.  No etching, and it leaves my counters shiny and pretty.

There is no need to pull out your rubber gloves and surgical masks when you clean your home. It might surprise you to know that you can concoct simple and inexpensive non-toxic cleaners from ingredients already lying around your house.

Using essential oils to create your own all natural cleaning spray is not only safe on the environment, but is safe for your family as well.  No one wants to put their baby in the bathtub that contains toxic residue from your chemical cleaners.

This spray is perfect for cleaning hard surfaces in the kitchen, bathroom, etc.

DIY All Purpose Cleaning Spray with Essential Oils


  • ¼ cup apple cider or white vinegar
  • 1 ¾ cups water. (I recommend distilled but tap will work just fine.)
  • 30 drops doTERRA essential oil
Recommended essential oil combinations:
  1. 10 drops each of OnGuard, Melaleuca, Lemon (this option is perfect for sanitizing)
  2. 15 drops each of Lavender and Lemon
  3. 10 drops each of Eucalyptus, Peppermint, and Wild Orange
  4. 30 drops doTERRA On Guard®
  5. 15 drops each of Grapefruit and doTERRA On Guard


  1. Add all ingredients to 16-ounce spray bottle*
  2. Shake thoroughly.

*Note:  Be sure to use a spray bottle that is safe for use with essential oils.  I prefer glass, but there are a few plastics that are safe, such as PET.  This is what I use and I order it directly from Amazon.
