It seems like everyone I talk to lately is feeling overwhelmed about something in their life. Health concerns, financial issues, not enough time in the day to accomplish everything, family issues… you name it, we’re all feeling a bit frantic at times. A friend of mine posted on her social media site about how she had started diffusing Lemon and Grapefruit essential oils in her house to help her calm down, yet stay alert. And then in the new Oil Camp I’m engaged in for the next two weeks, another gal posted about how she diffuses Lemon, Grapefruit, AND Bergamot oils to create a ‘Happy Home’ blend that everyone just loves. I actually use these oils all the time, especially the Lemon oil, but I wanted to talk about some of their uses on here so everyone could get a refresher on why these oils are loved so much. ~ If you are looking for a natural way to wash fruits and vegetables, get a small spray bottle and fill it almost to the top with water. Add in about 10 drops of any of the three citrus oils mentioned above, and spray right on the veggies and pieces of fruit. Rub the veggies off with your fingertips and run under water. The oil will dissolve away any chemicals, dirt, germs and grime. ~ If you need to get an unpleasant odor out of you carpets or cloth furniture cushions, spritz a combo of water and any of the three oils right on the surface that needs help, let sit for at least 5 minutes, rub with a clean cloth, and let dry naturally. The odor will lift away and all you will smell will be pure clean citrus scents. ~ For more info about all three of these oils simply type them in, one at a time, in the Search window at the top of this page and everything I’ve written about them will pop up!
Have a great day! Jana
