With a toddler,  120 lbs Shepherd mix and overall active family, my floors see a lot of traffic. Fur dust bunnies grace every corner of my house after just a few days of not vacuuming…. You get the picture!

Yesterday,  as I was switching out the vacuum cleaner bag,  a childhood memory popped into my head. My mom used to have this special "vacuum spray" that she bought and used in our vacuum cleaner growing up. It always filled the rooms with cinnamon scent and left the house feeling "done" after a good cleaning. As I sat looking at my new vacuum cleaner bag I wondered how I could duplicate this experience for my own little guy. It only took a second for the idea to formulate and send me running to my essential oil drawer!

I picked Thieves,  as it had that cinnamon smell I desired while being good for our air and immune systems! I dropped 4 drops around the inside of the bag and let it dry a bit before install. Then I started vacuuming our family room. As soon as I was done,  I called the hubby up (without divulging my "trick") and asked him how the room smelled. His response?" Wow! It smells great! "

Mission accomplished!

Do you have a bag-less vacuum cleaner? Try to put a few drops on a cotton ball and wedge it in the air vents! Just don’t block them completely!

Let me know what scents you loved trying! Happy vacuuming!
