Peppermint - Tea Tree Cleaning Concentrate
There is nothing that makes your house smell more wonderfully clean and disinfected than peppermint (Mentha x piperita), and Tea Tree (Melaleuca anternafolia). These two potent oils, even though non-toxic when properly used, together represent chemical constituencies that are more than 50% alcohol and offer themselves as antiseptic; bactericidal, antiviral and antifungal.

Pine Cleaning Concentrate
True Pine (Pinus sylvestris) has always been antiseptic, antimicrobial, bactericidal, deodorizing and insecticidal which is why so many cleaning products are made with a pine scent. Unfortunately, natural pine was alleviated many years ago when a cheaper, easier synthetic was formulated because natural pine does not hold up in detergents. However, if you love the fresh forest scent of pine and all of its benefits, but do not need the extra suds, then you will love this concentrate which works perfectly with vinegar, borax and baking soda - a great toilet bowl and bath cleaner - but will not mix well with castile soap.
Citrus Cleaning Concentrate
Vscentials natural citrus concentrate bursts with that wonderful fresh smell of lemons and oranges. Remember that the only way to avoid scurvy when explorers sailed to the new world was with the use of lemons! Lemon essential oil is naturally antimicrobial, antiseptic, bactericidal and insecticidal. This concentrate is designed to be used with an oil base to clean, shine and protect your fine furniture and wood surfaces. We include Jojoba in our cleaning kits because it is technically a wax and therefore acts as a protectorate for wood surfaces.
