Sure they smell great, but we sometimes forget all the natural benefits of using essential oils in our daily lives. Here are just a few suggestions for using essential oils:
Lemon Essential Oil, along with some judicious rubbing, can actually remove permanent marker. Add a little Lemon Essential Oil to your dishwasher’s detergent dispenser to give your dishes a sparkly shine. A little Lemon or Orange Essential Oil can remove gum from carpet or hair, or remove sticky labels. Add a drop of Peppermint to your coffee to give it a special flavor. Put Peppermint Essential Oil in a diffuser and place it next to an aphid or mite infested house plant, or use a few drops of Lemon Essential Oil in a sprayer with water and spritz the plants.
