9 ways to use Lemon Essential Oil in your home

Lemon essential oil is one of the top 5 essential oils we would recommend not being without. As you will see, it can be used in many different ways and with every use it will surround you with its fantastic fresh scent. This is one of our favourite essential oils to have and diffuse around the house.

Lemon Essential OilAir freshener:  Use 12 drops of Lemon oil in a squirt bottle with distilled water to use in the bathroom as an air freshener.

Dishwasher: Add 2 drops of Lemon oil to your dishwasher before the wash cycle. Your dishes will shine and your dishwasher will smell great. Use it with a green/eco-friendly dishwasher solution for best results.

House Carpet cleaner:  Put 10-15 drops of Lemon oil in each gallon of carpet cleaning solution to help pull out stains and brighten the rug. This also leaves a fresh smell in the room.

Clean fruit: To clean and increase the shelf life of fresh fruit, fill a bowl with cool water and 2-3 drops of Lemon oil . Drop your cleaned fruit into the water and stir. Be sure all surfaces of the fruit contact the lemon water.

Kitchen cleaner: Rub a drop of Lemon oil to clean a butcher’s Boos Block or other cutting surface. A safe alternative to harsh chemicals.

Kitchen Sterilizer: Add 5-6 drops of Lemon oil to water and spray counter tops to sterilize them. Your kitchen will smell amazing and you don’t have to worry about chemicals getting into your food.

Kill germs: Soak your dishcloth overnight in a bowl of water and 4 drop of Lemon oil to disinfect and kill germs.

House Sanitizer: Use a paper towel soaked with several drops of Lemon oil to sanitize bathroom fixtures. No chemicals or toxic fumes.

Stain remover: Use 1-2 drops of Lemon oil to remove gum, oil, grease spots,labels or crayon.

Make sure you only use Therapeutic Grade Essential Oils, store bought oils contain fillers and perfumes and do not have the same properties as 100% pure essential oils.  I would recommend using Young Living Lemon Essential Oil.
