Using Essential Oils with Kids

Remove Sticky Surfaces

Forget to take a sticker off a new shirt before washing and drying? Don’t throw it out! Rub lemon essential oil all over the sticky part and let sit for a minute.   Use your fingernail or a flat tool to easily scrape off the sticky residue. Works like a charm!   You can also use it to remove sticky labels, get gum out of carpet and hair, get sap off fingers and other sticky mishaps.

Disinfect and Deodorize

Stinky kitchen? Diffusing lemon essential oil spreads the lemon particles throughout the room and all the surfaces these particles land on can reap the disinfecting and deodorizing benefits of lemon. If your laundry is musty add a few drops of lemon to your load. Plus, did we mention it smells fantastic?

Lighten Your Hair!

It sounds crazy but we have used it successfully to add natural highlights to our hair.   Place a drop on your finger tips, glide over sections of your hair and then sit the sun for awhile.   The lemon reacts with the sunlight and highlights develop!   When you have reached the desired shade, wash and condition your hair as usual. Unlike chemical highlighters and bleaches lemon will not drying out or damage your hair.

Comforting Bath.

Mix a cup of Epsom Salts with 5 to 10 drops of lemon essential oil for a refreshing bath.


DO NOT put the oil in your eyes!  Lemon essential oil works great seasonally with this recipe: 1  drop each of lemon, lavender and peppermint essential oil.  Mix with a carrier oil and put in a roller bottle to apply topically.  Or you can diffuse it by doubling the recipe and adding it to your essential oil diffuser.

Add lemon essential oil to your aroma diffuser to help lift the mood around your home. The sweet citrusy aroma is delightful and cheery.
