I’ve got a cat who has a big personality. She gets frustrated easily if you are too busy to play with her and sometimes she will sit in the middle of a room and just howl. About 2 years ago I wrote about how I made homemade catnip toys by dropping 1 drop of Lemongrass essential oil on a few of her toys, let them dry, and then let her have them. Cats love Lemongrass, either the plant or the oil, and it’s safe for them if they ingest some of it. By giving her these distractions it keeps her busy and makes her a happier cat. ~ Another fun thing you can do with the oils is to comb a favorite oil into your hair and go about your day. The scent of the oil will last for hours and every time you move the scent wafts around you and anyone who is near. You will get a lot of positive comments when you do this. ~ Another great idea is to get a few colorful ribbons and spritz them with our repellent blend or Peppermint essential oil, and hang them in windowsills and around doorways. You can also hang them from outdoor patio umbrellas to help repel insects and bugs. This natural way to keep pests away has become real popular over the past few years because there are no chemicals in the oils, unlike some of the household repellents and sprays. ~ The last fun tip I’ll leave you with is using the oils as a fruit and veggie wash. Get a bowl of clean water, drop a few drops of Lemon or Lime oil in the water and place the fruit or veggies right in the water. Let it sit for a minute then rinse and wipe off with a clean cloth. The oils will easily remove any dirt and synthetics that can cling to the rinds or skin of the produce. ~ OK, there are a few fun ideas for you to use and share. Please send me any tips on how you use your essential oils and I’ll share them right on this blog!
Have a great day! Jana
