I love, love LOVE scents! I like smelling good aromas wafting through the air. I especially like scents that make me feel good, uplift me or calm me. Until recently that was pretty much all I thought about scents. But then I began seeing posts about essential oils.
I received a bottle of Pure Body Naturals Lemon Essential Oil to review and I am learning new ways to use it every day!
I have been into more natural living for several years. I do a few things like grow a garden every summer and sometimes make my own laundry detergent. I recycle or reuse a lot of items.
One of the the bigger changes I made more than a year ago, was I quite buying any household cleaners that contain harmful chemicals. I have relied on baking soda, vinegar, and salt as my main ingredients. And while they clean really well, they don't leave a noticeable scent.
I was excited to learn that cleaning and deodorizing is a popular and effective use for lemon oil!
I have tried a few things to ease into getting familiar with this oil. One of them was to try it out on my stove. The stove has needed cleaning for a long time, but I have resisted until now. I didn't want to have to use any harsh, stinky chemicals. I found a few recipes online and finally settled on this one:
1/2 Cup baking soda
2 Tablespoons 3% hydrogen peroxide
10-12 drops Lemon essential oil
It makes a thick paste. I smeared it on the oven door and left it for just a moment. I was amazed at how it seemed to dissolve the stuck on gunk! Since I was also trying to take pictures and didn't want to get elbow deep in it while handling my camera and I knew my guys would be home soon wanting some dinner, I just did a quick few minutes on the door, but I am so excited and encouraged by the results in just that few minutes!
After only a few moments and
light duty rubbing
I also added about 20 drops to a small spray bottle filled with water. This works great for freshening the air. I have even wiped the counters with it and it leaves the kitchen smelling so fresh!
I am by no means any kind of expert about using oils. I am just starting and learning as I go. The uses for lemon essential oil seem to be boundless!
Pure Body Naturals Lemon Essential Oil is undiluted, cruelty free, never tested on animals. It is cold pressed, with nothing added. It is very strong! I took the regular lid off so I could place the dropper on the bottle and just the cap sitting on the table next to my computer was making my eyes water!
I am super excited to learn more tricks and tips that I can use essential oils for! There seems to be so much!
