Essential oils are great for many reasons, and have more purposes around your home than you might realize. Having some natural at home remedies on hand is always helpful.
Lemon - Lemon essential oil is fresh and zesty, add a few drops on a cloth to remove any permanent marker that might be around the house.
Orange - Orange essential oil is another bright and fresh scent, that can help remove gum and sticky residue off any surface in your house. Add a few drops to the area that is sticky, wait at least a minute then scrub off. We most commonly use it in our house for remove those pesky labels.
Peppermint - Peppermint essential oil is a cooling scent that can help prevent any pesky creatures! Add the peppermint oil to a spray bottle with water and spray around the door ways, windows and any other spaces that can lead outside. They don’t like the smell of the peppermint and will avoid going near it.
Eucalyptus, Lemongrass, Lavender & Peppermint - All of these essential oils can be used either on their own or together to help keep fruit flies away. You can either put a few drops into your diffuser and keep it near the area or you can dip tea bags into the essential oils and hang them up in your kitchen. Both methods will help get rid of the fruit flies in your home.
Lavender - Lavender essential is a beautiful and relaxing scent that can help you fall asleep. Add a couple drops to the corner of your pillows before you go to bed. Another lavender trick is to help keep your carpets and rugs fresh. Mix together lavender and baking soda and sprinkle on to the area, let it sit for at least 30 minutes then vacuum it all up!
