We've had plenty of rain over the past few weeks, and whilst it might be good for the garden, there's a damp feeling in our home that I'd rather do without. Mould is starting to appear behind doors and in wardrobes, a common story in households at this time of the year, I'm sure. I've been combating it with a natural tea tree oil spray and it's working wonders. This essential oil has powerful anti-fungal properties, and you'll be happy to know it also helps to kill the spores and prevent future growth.
To make, fill a small glass bottle with water (I use 100ml size) and add 10-15 drops of tea tree oil. Darker-coloured glass is essential to protect the oil, I find amber or blue glass works well.
To use, wipe the affected areas to remove surface mould, then spray with the tea tree oil formula. Leave to work its magic for an hour or two, and wipe or scrub clean if necessary. I find an old toothbrush works well for getting in to those pesky corners,
Over the past year or so, I've woven essential oils in to our day-to-day rhythms. You'll find them in our homemade cleaning products, beauty concoctions, or simply diffused in the air to purify and cleanse.
