Natural Spring Cleaning with Plant Therapy Essential Oils {Review & Sponsor Spotlight}

 Plant Therapy Essential Oils Reivew - Natural Spring Cleaning

Spring is here! Spring is here! Spring is HERE!

I’m quite excited, if you can’t tell, because this winter was so darn long, but Spring has sprung and there’s not going back now. :)

Our garden is going in a little late this year, as we’ve been (and will be) traveling for a bit, so that’s going to have to wait. But what I have been working on is doing some Spring Cleaning, trying to get this house freshened up and ready for the new season!

I’ve posted quite a few natural cleaning recipes here over the past year, and it’s no surprise that many of them contain not only simple, natural ingredients, but also essential oils. I love essential oils and use them for just about everything – including cleaning our home – because they have disinfecting properties and they leave the house smelling absolutely wonderful.

When Plant Therapy contacted me about trying some of their oils, I quickly jumped at the opportunity. I’d never heard of their company before, but after reading more about them on their website and Facebook page, I knew I wanted to work with them!

Plant Therapy Essential Oils Review

plant therapy essential oils review
14 Essential Oil Set – Top Singles. Includes Oils of Bergamot, Clary Sage, Cinnamon, Eucalyptus, Grapefruit, Lavender, Lemon, Lime, Patchouli, Peppermint, Rosemary, Spearmint, Orange & Tea Tree.

 

Plant Therapy sent me their awesome Top 14 Essential Oils Set – it contains oils I use on a regular basis, some that I’ve tried a few times, and some that I’ve only heard about but haven’t yet had the chance to try out. This was super exciting for me, as I’m always up for trying new oils in different ways!

Plant Therapy Essential Oils Reivew

First, let me say that I love Plant Therapy’s super simple, yet elegant packaging. The oils come in a simple cardboard box with a small layer of foam to protect the bottles, and a cute little elastic bow to hold the box closed. That’s it. No extra, wasteful packaging or paper, etc. The box was shipped in a thick, padded envelope, but that was it. I love when companies use minimalist principles in their packing and shipping!

Spring Cleaning and Other Recipes

The essential oils I’ve been using for my Spring Cleaning include lavender, orange, peppermint, and tea tree. So I used these in everything from my homemade laundry detergent and dryer sheets, to my all-purpose cleaner, my foaming hand soap and I even made a fresh batch of my anti-bacterial spray.

Now, I’ve used a few different essential oil brands in the past, and I even have a favorite brand for each specific oil. But I can tell you that I’m very pleased with the high quality of Plant Therapy’s oils. They smell amazing, and sometimes even better than my previous favorites. The lavender and orange, specifically, have a cleaner, more vibrant scent – and those are my favorites!

From Plant Therapy:

Plant Therapy believes in the power of essential oils, and know of their incredible benefits, we want them to be used in as many households as possible. Plant Therapy was founded with one goal in mind… we want to provide the highest quality essential oils (and accessories) at a price that everyone can afford. Plant Therapy provides oils that are 100% pure, undiluted and therapeutic grade. We source each oil from top suppliers around the world, buy in large volume, and negotiate the best prices possible. We then pass those savings on to you, the consumer!

In addition to my Spring Cleaning, I also wanted to try out some of the other oils, so I made up a new batch of my homemade deodorant. I used the lavender and tea tree oils for one batch, as usual, but I also added some patchouli for another batch because it has an earthy, fruity scent. Patchouli also has antiseptic and antimibrobal properties, making it a great deodorant!

And since I’m pregnant, I just had to try some of the tips from my Essential Oils for Pregnancy post! I’ve been having some neck pain and stiffness, so I mixed a couple drops of bergamot and lavender into some coconut oil and gave myself a nice neck massage. Wow! I’ve never used bergamot oil before, but it was a very nice complement to the lavender oil, for a soothing, relaxing massage. Bergamot is good for stress and anxiety, so it’s a great addition to your relaxing bath and massage oil blends.

I also really like that they list the uses and benefits of the oils very clearly on the side of every bottle. That way, the info is right at your fingertips so you don’t have to go fumbling around looking it up online or searching through a book.

The only thing I didn’t like about these oils was how quickly they came out of the bottle when I was adding them to my recipes. I’m used to a slow, controlled drip, allowing me to carefully count each drop. But Plant Therapy’s oils come out much more quickly, that sometimes it was hard to count the drops. Of course, this is an issue with the bottles, and not the oils themselves, but I still thought I’d mention it just so you’re aware.

I’m really impressed by the quality of Plant Therapy’s oils. They’re 100% pure and natural, of therapeutic grade and free from any chemicals or pesticides. If you’re just starting to get into essential oils, or if you’re a seasoned pro, you may want to give them a try next time you’re shopping for some oils, as they’re very affordable!

Where to Buy Plant Therapy Essential Oils

You can buy Plant Therapy essential oils right from their website. They carry a very large selection of different oils sourced from around the world. They also carry lots of cool accessories like diffusers, cases, books, and empty roll-on bottles to create your own blends. Another great product they offer is their synergy blends, which I’m very interested in trying!

    I absolutely love essential oils. I use them for cooking, cleaning and medicinally. When one of us is sick or under the weather, we reach for our oils first. I keep a bottle of Serenity (a lavender blend) and vetiver on my nightstand and use them every single night. I also like how I can use EOs to replace zest in recipes. EOs rock!

    • ann says

  12. Rhonda says

    I am new to using oils.My friend gave me some peppermint oil several months ago,which I put away and never used.Recently I had a severe headache that wouldn’t go away w/ traditional pain relievers-I happened to be on the internet looking through DIY posts and came across the benefits of oils,so I looked up peppermint oil and BAM!-it said it could be used for headaches! I did what it said to do,I diluted it with some oil I had,rubbed it into my temples and I am not even kidding when I say it almost immediately took away my 2 day old headache so I AM A BELIEVER! i SOOO hope I win this so I can try these oils for my many health issues I suffer with!

  18. jo n says

    I have used lavender oil for years. I used it when I would get headaches (several times a week). I would take a couple good whiffs. Sometimes the headache would go away with just this or it would at least dull it until aspirin would kick in. I also used it in my bathwater. I carry a very small bottle of it all the time. It is also a good antiseptic.

  19. krista says

    I started using EO’s last fall. I started to make homemade cleaners & researching aromatherapy, then I learned about the medicinal aspect of them & I want to stop using OTC and prescription medications for everyday ailments.

    My favorites Lavender and I use lemon & wild orange in water

    How do you use essential oils around your home? What are your favorite essential oils to use?

    I have a variety of skin allergies and fragrance allergies due to chemicals in manufactured products. I have been transitioning into an organic remedy life style. I use essential oils in body care products, household products, and herbal remedies.

    My favorite essential oils are lavender, rosemary, lemon, clary sage, and spearmint.

  23. Kim Harper says

    Love them all that I have tried.. For sleep at night, in laundry det, for bug repellent, and love different mixtures in diffuser.. Especially the orange & lemon !, thanks ..

  24. Laura says

    Started using essential oils for headaches years ago! Since then, My husband has bought me a new kit every few years. It is wonderful to have a new source for oils and organic is a plus with me.

    I have a suggestion for the flow issue from the bottles. Get a set of droppers and label them for each oil. It works for me.

    Glad to have found this site!

  25. Kat Kiger says

    I use a house cleansing spray made from Sage, Lavender, Rosemary & either Peppermint or a Citrus oil. I also use various EO such as Lavender (my favorite), Rose, or Ylamg Ylang to make my own chunk bath salts/rocks, to bless candles with, & I make my own special blend of several EOs that has become my “signature” scent.

  26. Jalin Bingham says

    I use essential oils for medicinal purposes right now, but really interested in starting to make my own cleaning and personal products.

    Essential oils are so wonderful! I use the few that I have. I’d love to win the giveaway and add to the healing powers of oils!

  28. Anna D says

    I love Lavender, Patchouli, and Peppermint oil. In Vegas we have a ton of spiders- Black Widow & Brown Recluse…. and I am petrified of spiders! So I saw Facebook post about adding peppermint oil to a spray bottle with water spray around your house to repel them (the smell is too strong for them to stand). I’ve been doing this for a month and haven’t seen a Black Widow in my garage since! YAY!

  29. says

    I use essential oils in homemade deep hair conditioning, body butter, deodorant, hair oils, in the bath tub, to get rid of pimples (tea tree) and to fight back fungus (right now in my armpit). I especially love rosmary and lavender essential oils!

  30. Wendy Jones says

    I have gathered all the research and recipes and ways to use EO. I would LOVE, LOVE, LOVE to have this set.

  36. says

    I’ve spent the last six months delving into learning more about using AND using EOs in my self care as well as home keeping. AND removing less healthy and less effective products from our lives. My favorite use is probably the night time sleep aid EO blend I use nightly on my wrists and occasionally on my pillow.

  37. Rachel says

  38. Meagan says

    I use essential oils to make my own body/beauty products, clean around the house, make my own laundry detergent, etc! I try to replace all the toxic store bought household items with homemade all natural alternatives. I love lavender, tea tree, rosemary, lemongrass…. all of them, really! :-]

  46. Jane Brown says

    For a natural bug repellent, I use Lavender and Peppermint oils mixed with water in a spray bottle!

  47. Karen Cates says

    For around the house, I like to use EO’s on lightbulbs to enfuse the scent around the house. My favorite EO scents are orange and cedarwood.

    I’ve never used plant oils for cleaning, but it sounds like a wonderful idea to get rid of as many chemicals as possible!

  60. Amber says

    I use oils for EVERYTHING in my home. From cleaning, to taking care of cuts and scraps. It’s spring time, the bees are buzzing, and stinging. I use Tea Tree oil to clean the wound and then lavender to help with the pain. Lavender is also an anti-histamine which is perfect for itching and reddness that the sting leaves behind.

  61. Malaurie says

    I haven’t actually used any essential oils in any recipes around my house yet. I’ve started collecting other ingredients to recipies so I can start using natural alternatives, I just don’t have the oils yet to do it. I seen this giveaway & thought I would enter. If I won I would be so excited! I’m getting my first home in about 3-7 months (just waiting on the short sale) & I really want to start making my own all natural products for cleaning, ailments, ect.

    Baby wipe solution is our most common use, but we also use them in other homemade products like shampoo and face wash. Lavender and lemon are the ones we use the most.

  63. Corinne says

    I use EO’s mostly for aromatherapy. I use a combination of peppermint and tangerine to relieve headaches, and occasionally, to wake me up in the morning. I use lavender to relax. And I use various oils to add an inviting scent to rooms in my house. I mainly use citrus oils like lemon, orange, and grapefruit, because they tend to make me happy. Then I like to add sage, basil, or clary sage for an interesting combination.

  64. Leann L says

    The oil I use the most is TTO. I use it in my homemade cleaner to add disinfecting. I also add a few drops to our laundry when washing.

  65. Ashley says

    I absolutely love that it has the uses for each oil on the back of every bottle! I haven’t found any other brands that do more than a word or two for their uses! <3

  66. Tina says

    Chemicals in commercial cleaning products are toxic to our home environment. What a great alternative.

  67. Tina says

    Chemicals in commercial cleaning products are toxic to our home environment. What a great alternative.
    I really love peppermint oil – I use it in lip balms. I love the way it feels!
    I also love lavender oil – it’s extremely effective, when rubbed over top of a carrier oil, for tight and sore muscle aches and tension! Not to mention how much better you can sleep with the wonderful scent of lavender coming from your back or shoulders at night. ;)

  68. Tami says

    Well, it’s hard for me to talk about just one! I use Black Cumin for immune health. Peppermint for just about ANTHING, Lavender for just about ANYTHING too. I use Clary Sage, Anise, and Geranium for menopausal symptoms. There are SO many!! Gotta love me some essential oils!!!!!

  69. Amanda says

    I have been using EO’s in my Vacuum (It’s a Rainbow Vacuum that runs with water in a reservoir) to make the house smell better for about 10 years now, as well as for many other typical uses (ie: aroma therapy, cleaning, assistance with sleeplessness, stress etc etc). I’ll be looking into these products more and to possibly try some new scents :)

  70. JLM says

    So many wonderful products. There are many ways of cleaning with essential oils that I had not heard of before. I can’t wait to try them. I’d really like to get a diffuser for the Bergamot. I had no idea it could be used in treating depression and anxiety. Hope it works for PTSD as well.

  71. Linda says

    I use Melaleuca all the time for myself, pets, and home. I put a drop of melaleuca on cuts, scrapes, etc., and a bandaid. Learning how to use other EOs. Would love to add more knowledge of EOs by useing them.

  72. JoAn Besier says

    I so want to start using the benefits of essential oils. I give been giving up on all chems.

  73. Leah Smith says

  74. April Weimer says

    I’m new to essential oils and so far I use lavender for just about everything! Cuts, sleep spray, baths. I use peppermint & tea tree for cramps & cleaning!

  75. Sarah Jones says

    As I am learning more & more about EO’s I am also using them more & more. I have been diffusing them to help my kids with allergies. I use them in my cleaning products I make & am also using them to treat various ailments of the family!

  76. Kimiko says

    Have used essential oils for massage and aches/pains, but recently am researching how to use them all over my home and cut out toxic chemicals. Thanks for a great article and some wonderful ideas that I plan to incorporate!

  77. Carla says

    I love this site! So many wonderful oils and other products to make life a little better. I am very interested in the oil used by a Fibromyalgia patient. My daughter suffers from the same condition and it tears my heart out to see her in such pain. This oil looks like a possible help to her constant pain. The problem will be in using it…it will cause a lot of pain just to apply it. Terrible condition to have.

  78. Amy Bishop says

    I’m just starting to get into the EO world. So far I use lavender in my homemade fabric softener and sometimes I put a few drops on my pillow at night to sleep better. I have tea tree, peppermint, orange and lemon which I’m going to use in different household products (dish soap, cleaning products, skincare recipes) etc. But I love learning about new uses and seeing what other people have tried!

  79. Jacqueline Dubois says

    i LOVE LOVE LOVE essential oils and have been eliminating toxic products in my house one by one. I use peppermint oil dabbed in an old sock, rolled up and stuff into another old sock, in my dryer. There is nothing like your clothes smelling like fresh peppermint. I also add different oils (depending on my mood) to my vinegar and water floor and tub cleaners! Yummmmy!

  80. Victoria says

    I use oils to clean and freshen my home my favorites are tea tree , lavender , eucalyptus , and rosemary.

  81. Karen says

    I had no idea there were some many essential oils. I can’t wait to try some on the ones I wasn’t aware of before.

  82. cheryl says

    I just started researching essential oils and I enjoyed your review. I look forward to start using them.

  83. Rae Grant says

    I <3 essential oils!!! there are so many uses for them……from cleaning to relaxing :) I like Cinnamon, Grapefruit, Lavender, Lemon, Lime, Rosemary and Orange. Thanks

  84. Cheryl Ross says

    I just started to use essential oils & 1st use was in my weekly pedicure. A few drops of lavender in the water w/epsom salts & then mixed w/grapeseed oil & kosher salt for a scrub. I care for my older father & now once a week he gets tea tree oil in his soak/scrub & every 2 weeks I give my sister a pedicure using lemongrass

  85. Meghan Crumpler Daniels says

It can also help headaches which I find amazing, and make my bath time an oasis while healing me with all my skin issues of dry skin and that tired feeling I feel often. Thank you for the chance of getting to try these. God bless

  86. Olivia Hunt says

    I love using eucalyptus oil with a carrier for a deep muscle pain relief massage oil, or on a washcloth under a pillow to help with congestion and cough. A drop of Lavender on my wrist or in the tub with my kids for the calming effect. Adding Sweet Orange oil to vinegar that’s been soaking in lemon peels for a great smelling and brightening natural fabric softener. Peppermint oil on cotton balls in the corners of my house to keep pests out. Tea tree oil for so many different things, in cleaners, on the face and hair, in my 2 year old’s cloth wipe solution because of the antimicrobial qualities.

  87. says

    I was looking at bergamot the other day but didn’t know what to use it for, thank you for that information, as I already have the lavender. I am interested in know so much about how and what to use essential oils in. I love this site, there is so much info.!

  88. Tamlyn Ptasinski says

    I have developed a new obsession with learning the countless ways essential oils can be used. I use mine mainly for medicinal purposes, household cleaning, homemade beauty products and also in the rinse cycle of my laundry, especially when washing my baby’s cloth diapers. I also find them most effective in homemade bug repellents and in homemade pesticides. Gosh, there isn’t a day that goes by without the use of a variety of essential oils. They are nature’s gift to us!

  89. Angela M says

  131. says

    I use several oils but one has been most reached for lately when a Spring bout of the flu bug hit friends. I dosed the family with approx. three drops oregano oil on a small spoonful of coconut oil 3x/day for about 5 days. We ended up with just a few with sore throats and fevers and some with just runny nose but no aches, pains, puking, ect. I swear by oregano oil!

  132. Gloria says

    My favorite essential oil to use is clove oil. True, it is not often I have to bring it out to ease the pain from a bad toothache, but it has saved myself and my family enough grief to be extremely grateful for its existence. I feel good reaching for that instead of the massive amounts of painkillerdrugs I would need to quell the agony. Thank God for natural medicine!

  133. StaciV says

    I absolutely LOVE essential oils! Its difficult to pick a favorite, but I would have to say my absolute tops would have to be: Frankinscence, Myrrh, & Lavender. I like to use them for aroma therapy and also for salves, soaps, shampoo, etc. I love learning new ways to enjoy them as well!

  134. says

    I mainly use my essential oils as a doula. I have a few right now that I either use separately (lavender, peppermint, etc) or as a blend (a lovely labor one). I’ve been doing a bit of research and want to make up my own blends for my clients while in labor for me to use with them as also postpartum. Thanks very much for the new recipe for massage (bergamot and lavender in coconut oil), I’ll have to give that one a try!

    I use essential oils everywhere in my house. To disinfect and to keep healthy. Some of my favorites are Breathe, Deep Blue, lavender, and my most favorite is melaleuca.

    • Teri W says

      They are of a high quality and in my opinion they go neck and neck with doTerra. Also, have you tried Spark Naturals? High quality at very, VERY affordable prices!!!

  143. says

    Vetiver has to be my absolute favorite! It is aptly called the ‘oil of tranquility”. I dab a little on the vIta flex points before meditation and diffuse it in the burner too.

I try not to purchase large quantities of oils just yet as they tend to be a little pricy and as stated here finding quality oils is difficult sometimes. I am thankful for the positive posts about Plant therapy leaving me with a better feeling about making a purchase.

  164. Sandra says

    Just made a fresh batch of my favorite hair rinse. Rosemary and lavender oil with Braggs apple cider vinegar, and my curly, dry, frizzy hair has been tamed. I am soooooo very impressed. And my hair smells so good all day long. Love it.

  172. shubashini says

    EO are so versatile! we are so used to chemical stuff in bottles but mother nature has provided for everything we need to live on earth comfortably. we need not manufacture new, toxic stuff in labs for simple things like cleaning our kitchen countertop. natural is way to go.

  173. shubashini says

    I have started using essential oils to make facial treatments for me and my daughter. My favorite oils to use in these are lavender, arjan, and tea tree oils.

  180. says

    I love using essential oils. I use them in aromatherapy for pets all the time. I use a specific brand that is ok to use with birds (young living) but I use other brands as well for things like cleaning and even for myself when I have a head ache the peppermint oil defused in the room really helps.

  181. says

    I like that they have the ‘germ fighting’ that is comparable to thieves, which I use for just about everything. Sometimes though I use it just for cleaning or something and hate paying the ridiculous price I normally pay for it so I am happy they have something I can use for cleaning and defusing that is not costing an arm & a leg so I will buy it and see how it goes :)

  182. Brooke says

    I’ve just recently started using PT oils and really love them. I love that they are affordable and FREE SHIPPING!!! Who doesn’t love that? I love their calming the child blend. I use their oils in my homemade deodorant and in my facial oil blend. I also use a lot of their blends at work and diffuse them for my whole office to enjoy. I’d love to win some!

  183. says

    I clean with water, vinegar, lemon, peppermint, and tea tree. Lemon helps get rid of the nasty dirt, peppermint kills bacteria and smells fresh, and tea tree kills mold. I also sometimes add cinnamon to help kill some types of viruses.

  184. Carissa says

    These oils sound fantastic! Will give them a shot!

    For deodorant, I use an all-natural brand Lavilin (www.lavilin.com). Great for sensitive skin, absolutely no aluminum, and smells great!!

  185. says

    I Love to try this. I normally used this essential oils in daily cleaning and cooking. I love to try this at home, it would be fantastic if there is no side effects when it is exposed in the body.
