Cleaning With Grapefruit
~ Tanya Patterson ~
Grapefruit essential oil is antiviral and antibacterial. It smells great, disinfects and is a wonderful companion oil to combine with others for that uplifting, refreshing and pleasing, citrus clean that is often associated with the kitchen.
Here are a few fun recipes to try using YL Grapefruit essential oil.
Place the following ingredients in a squeeze bottle by the sink:
- 1/4 full with castile soap
- 1 cup water
- 1 tsp. glycerin
- 10 drops lemon essential oil
- 10 drops grapefruit essential oil
Add the following ingredients to a spray bottle or one of your choice:
- 1/4 full with vinegar
- 3/4 full with hot water
- 1 tsp. baking soda
- 10 drops grapefruit essential oil (the citrus cuts down on the smell of vinegar :D)
