It’s official, Marie Kondo is taking the world by storm. Maybe you first picked up her book a couple years ago and began the process of decluttering your life and finding joy in the items you own. Or maybe you binge-watched her new Netflix series and couldn’t wait to transform your own space. If you’re ready to get started on the Kon Mari method (or really any method for decluttering your home), essential oils are here to help. Check out these amazing ways that you can use EOs while you tidy up.
This may be the hardest part of the whole process. It’s easy to get overwhelmed by the sheer enormity of sorting through everything you own and organizing it. Luckily there are several essential oils to help. Diffuse a few drops of the synergy blend Energy to help give you the boost of energy you need to get off the couch and get started tidying. May Chang is also an excellent uplifting oil to help boost your motivation. Or try the Get Moving Diffuser Blend, which can provide the boost of energy and mental clarity you need to get started.

Choosing What Sparks Joy
Part of tidying up is choosing what to keep, what to throw away, and what to donate. According to Marie Kondo, we should only keep those items that spark joy. Sounds easy, right? Well, not always. Parting with our stuff can often be the source of stress and confusion. Plant Therapy offers several synergy blends that can help give you the mental clarity you need to make these big decisions. Try diffusing a few drops of Brain Aid, Clarity, A+ Attention or Clear Intuition.

Organizing Your Oils
For any EO lover, it can be nearly impossible to part with any essential oil. After all, every oil sparks joy, right? We won’t be the one to argue with you on that point. However, it can be beneficial to take stock of your collection. Maybe you discover the odd empty bottle or a handful of duplicates or some oils that are past their prime. Not to mention, a beautifully organized collection can be both pleasing to the eye and make it easier for you to find your favorite oils (or try out something new).

Use Oils While You Clean
Once you’ve finished tidying your space, it’s time to clean. And it’s no secret that essential oils make excellent natural cleaners. By substituting EOs into your routine, you’ll not only save space by eliminating extra bottles of cleaners, but you’ll also get one step closer to having a natural household. Both Lemon and Tea Tree are great oils to start using as a cleanser. Or check out our Cleaning Set, complete with six essential oils to get you started.

After all your hard work, diffusing your favorite oils, or using one of our synergy blends, can be the perfect way to promote peace and relaxation in your home. Try a few drops of Tranquil, Relax, or Worry Free.
