Five Tips To Freshen Your Home


How to Freshen Up Your House With Citrus Essential Oils

I don't know about you but I love the smell of lemon and lime.  They both remind me of a clean fresh scent! So I decided to give you a couple tips on how you can use these essential oils to freshen up  your home before all the company comes over for the holidays.

Lemon essential oil has many amazing qualities.  It has anti-infection, astringent, detoxifying, antiseptic, disinfectant, and anti fungal properties. So it is the perfect choice when freshening up our home.



  • Dryer: Use Dryer Balls (these can be found on amazon) during your dryer cycle.  Simply add a drop or two of citrus essential oil to each dryer ball and add to laundry.  It will not only freshen your dryer, it will  make your cloths smell amazing. 
  • Dishwasher: After ensuring that there is no excess food or waster in the bottom of your dishwasher place 2 cups of distilled while vinegar and 8-10 drops of lemon or lime essential oil in a dishwasher safe container.  Place it on the top rack of your dishwasher, close and select the hottest dishwasher cycle you have and run the dishwasher with the container inside. Open the dishwasher and your done!
  • The Air: Do you have air vents in your home? If so add 2-3 drops of lemon or lime essential oil to your air filters and enjoy the amazing aroma.  No air vents? That is ok!  Add 2-3 drops to your diffuser and turn it on.  It will bring a refreshing scent to your home.
