I think I mentioned on Instagram not long ago that I had spent half a day cleaning the master bathroom. Totally not kidding! I cleaned, cleaned and then cleaned some more. Vacuuming and mopping floors, baseboards, vanities and toilet. Whoosh! Then I decided, what the heck… I should clean the (rarely use) whirlpool tub too!
So I did a little research on how to clean a whirlpool tub. There are methods out there using everything from bleach to vinegar to baking soda. Remembering the volcanoes our girls used to make for science projects, I knew I didn’t want to use vinegar and baking soda at the same time!
But then I knew it had to be rinsed again… because who wants to get in a bath with bleach-y water? So I wondered if I could try some essential oils. I did a little research and found that many people have already unlocked the secret to preventing gunk from forming in their whirlpools, hot tubs and even swimming pools! Amazingly, the water in their hot tubs stays pristine with just a few drops of oil added… and NO CHEMICALS needed! Incredible!!
My research concluded that one of the best oils for tubs, especially hot tubs, is Geranium Oil! Since I am still building my stash of oils and didn’t have Geranium Oil, I used Thieves Oil Blend. After filling the tub with clean water, I simply dropped about 5 drops of Thieves into the water, turned on the jets and let them run for a few minutes.
Thieves oil is so unique in that it has amazing cleansing properties! It was created based upon the legend of 4 thieves during the 15th century who went about robbing graves of those who had succumbed to the plagues of that time. In order to protect themselves, they rubbed certain oils on their bodies. When captured, in order to obtain a lenient sentence, they revealed their secret of herbs, spices and oils that they had used to fend off the plague. Young Living has developed this blend based on the information gleaned from their capture. The individual oils in this blend are: Clove, Lemon, Cinnamon Bark, Eucalyptus and Rosemary.
I continue to be amazed at the uses and effectiveness of essential oils! My tub is now clean, safe and ready for long soaks after working hard inside or out! We are so much healthier after using our essential oils, and I love Thieves because I can clean with it and rid my home of harmful chemicals! I hope you’ll try this with your whirlpool or hot tub!
Have a wonderfully healthy day!
