My Oily Experience With Lemon

Lemon is a great oil to have around. Not only does it smell great, but it works wonders as a disinfectant as well. I like to put a couple drops of lemon essential oil in my washing machine to kill germs and freshen it up a bit. This is also a must have oil when there is a sore throat in the house. My kids will testify to this one. Typically they feel immediate relief when I rub lemon essential oil on the front and sides of their neck.

Believe it or not, but essential oils can also make a wonderful addition to many different baked goods. Lemon essential oil is no exception! I love to add some to my homemade blueberry muffins. Talk about yum! Plus, this oil just smells clean and refreshing. I tend to add a few drops to my hard floors before running the steam mop over them. Smells ahhh-mazing!
