Ways to Use Essential Oils

In the bedroom...before bed, place 5 drops of lavender on a cotton ball and place it inside your pillowcase.

In the kitchen...use a drop of clove in a simmering pan to help with cooking odours. Place 5 drops of lemon or tea tree oil on your dishcloth as you wipe down your counter.

In the 5 drops of a citrus essential oil on a tissue and place it inside your toilet roll.

In a vacuum cleaner...add a few drops of essential oil to your vacuum bag to give the whole house a nice aroma while you do your housework.

Air cotton balls, with any favourite essential oil on them, inconspicuously arouond the house. You can freshen up your silk or dried flower arrangements and potpourri with a drop or two of your favourite oil.

Selling your home...use a spicy oil such as clove, cinnamon or nutmeg to create a homey feeling.

Letter your stationery in a resealable plastic bag with a drop of essential oil on a tissue. Use oils such as lavender, lemon, peppermint or rose.

Repel adding 5 drops of tea tree oil to a cloth before cleaning any surfaces around the house - the antiseptic qualities will repel house flies. Note: citronella is marketed as the best insect repellant. According to our research, Eucalyptus citriodora is even more effective.
