Household Lemon Oil Uses
Lemon Oil. This delightfully fresh scented essential oil makes so many wonderful household products that will not only keep your home clean but also smelling fresh and uplifting!
In our house, our favorite use for lemon essential oil is for a simple “goo remover”. We just place a bit of oil on a rag and wipe at the sticky substance until it goes away. It works wonderfully for stickers and other stuck-on goo. You can find even more great recipes using Lemon Essential Oil in my book, Little House Living: The Make Your Own Guide to a Frugal, Simple, and Self-Sufficient Life.
