Do you know that you can enjoy the benefits of aromatherapy even during housekeeping?
Try adding lavender essential oil in ironing water, approximately 6-7 drops per 150 ml. The results are amazing! Lavender will scent your clothes and has antimicrobial and antifungal properties. The use of lavender essential oil prevents also the concentration of salt on the iron plate even when tab water is used instead of distilled. The diffused vapor inhaled when ironing is bearing all the beneficial properties of the essential oils used.If you do not like the scent of lavender try orange (especially for children's clothes), eucalyptus, or juniper (very beneficial if you are ironing while having a cold).
Experiment with the essential oils of your preference and ironing will no longer be a dull household activity!
