It’s Winter time now and with the colder weather comes damp, sometimes musty smells. These scents can have a negative effect on some people’s moods so diffusing certain essential oils in the home can help out a lot. Two of my favorite oils to help brighten moods are our Lemon and Wild Orange oils. You can use these oils together, or separately, depending on your own mood. And, if you don’t have a diffuser yet, you can get similar results by putting a couple drops of the oils on a cotton ball and placing them around a room, in your car, in drawers, and in your gym bag. This insures a ‘good mood cloud’ will hover over everyone who comes in smelling distance of the oils. ~ Another way you can freshen up your house and at the same time do some cleaning, is to use these oils to clean out the refrigerator, the microwave oven, sinks of every type, bathtubs, toilets, flooring, stainless steel appliances, windows, dishes, and even laundry. Over the years I’ve posted all kinds of ‘recipes’ for cleaning with our oils but if you can’t find these easily by using the Search window on this page, go ahead and contact me and I’ll share the ‘recipes’ that you’re interested in! ~ One of the all time favorite ways to use Wild Orange and Lemon oils together is to use them to help eliminate pet odors from most things… like bedding, carpets, drapes, rugs, hard wood, etc. By mixing just a few drops of each of these oils in about 2 inches of water in a glass or metal spray bottle, you have yourself a natural, safe, anti-odor cleaner that won’t stain or leave a film on anything. And the scent will leave your home appealing to everyone, including the pets themselves.
Have a great day! Jana
