How to use the oils in the kitchen

Remove harmful substances from vegetables and fruit

Create a spray bottle with 250 ml distilled or boiled water and add 5 drops of lemon. Spray this on your store-bought fruit and veg before you put it in the fridge or for storage. The oil removes the pollutants and pesticides, the wax or residue from unwanted bacteria. You can also put fruit, such as berries, in a bowl of water and add 2 drops of lemon. Let the whole thing take effect for about 10 minutes. After that you can eat them straight away. You will see that your fruit and vegetables are not only healthier, but also last much longer.

Use the oils for soft drinks

Especially in summer you can use oils such as lime, lemongrass, grapefruit, lemon or lavender in the water. One drop per liter is enough for this. Depending on your taste, you can be intuitive here. All DoTerra oils can be taken internally unless they have a safety seal (e.g. Deep Blue). These oils are not ingestible. I also like working with a pipette here so that you can dose correctly.

Keep a cool head even in hectic moments

A roller with peppermint is perfect for this. Apply it to the back of your neck or just behind your ears and stay focused and focused, even when things get hectic.

Create your own chemical-free cleaning agent

You can also use oils like lemon or oregano for cleaning. Create a spray or use the pipette. You will see that you can get surfaces clean again in no time at all. In addition, Tea Tree is a real miracle cure. Add 10 drops to a 250ml spray bottle and mix with water to spray surfaces throughout the home.

Descaling without chemicals

Simply mix a few drops of lemon with some tap water and let it work. By the way, it also helps to clean diffusers.
