We talked about Lavender... now let's talk about Lemon! Another oil that we use regularly in my family is Lemon Essential Oil. There are SO many uses for this one I don’t even know where to start.
When my grandson comes over and spills his juice all over my carpet (yes, I know I don’t look old enough to have grandson lol) I use lemon oil to get the stain out.
While we’re talking about cleaning, Lemon can also be used to get gum or goo off of surfaces. Have you ever removed a sticker from one of your appliance only to realize that it left behind a sticky film that you can’t get off? I have. A drop of lemon will get it right off. You can also mix lemon with water in a glass spray bottle and use it to clean and disinfect surfaces.
My oldest daughter, and yes, the one that gave me my beautiful grandson, is very forgetful. She always complains that she forgot to put the laundry in the dryer before leaving the house. She uses 2-4 drops of lemon to freshen the stale close right up! She just turns on the rinse cycle, adds the lemon, and done!
My husband likes to use it as a detox. 1-2 drops of lemon in a GLASS of water does the trick! You can also diffuse lemon to purify the air!
