Cleaning-Mould-With-Essential-oils.jpg

Mould is a serious issue for anyone with a chronic illness or a compromised immune system especially affecting individuals with Lyme Disease and associated infections. Mould can also stop any treatments you are undergoing from working so it really is important to take measures to rid your home of mould.

Natural solutions are favored by most of our guests here at Neomed so we wanted to give you some ways to combat mould growth with the use of essential oils.

Plants naturally contain powerful therapeutic properties to protect themselves from harmful substances such as bacteria and mould so it is no surprise that essential oils, which are potent distillations extracted from these plants, exhibit these abilities.

Essential oils with anti-fungal properties include Thyme, Oregano, Clove, Tea Tree, Peppermint, Lemongrass, Geranium, Cinnamon, Basil and Dill. Of course different essential oils are more effective for different types of mould. For example clove essential oil is particularly useful against black mould (Aspergillus niger). You may have to experiment over a period of time to see which essential oil is most effective in your home.

When cleaning mould you always wear protective gear over your skin and clothes including a mouthguard and if you are already unwell or are sensitive to mould, find someone else to do this for you.

We recommend not to use a spray bottle as spraying mould can actually make fine particles of mould airborne and you want to contain the problem as much as possible so instead use a small basin to prepare your solution and a sponge or cloth to douse the area, leave for 10 minutes and then wipe clean.

Essential Oil Mould Cleaning Solution Recipe

250ml Distilled White Vinegar or Isopropyl Alcohol
250ml Water
30 Drops of Essential Oil (using 15 drops of essential oil per 250ml of liquid)

Note when using essential oils on wood or paint it can peeling as they are very potent so use caution. If you have particularly stubborn areas which need scrubbing you can use baking soda, combined with water (50/50 ratio) and add essential oils of your choice to the mixture.

Diffusing essential oils with a nebulising diffuser is also another daily remedy to purifying the air in your home and combating the effects of mould.

Of course there is many ways to combat mould in your home and the above is just a few suggestions. Sometimes mould is such a deep rooted issue in a home that the only way to escape the effects is to move to a different home where possible.
