Diffused. We will put a few drops in my diffuser to give my home a freshly cleaned scent. We also enjoy combining equal amounts of Lemon and Peppermint and just a couple drops of Tea Tree in our diffuser to help freshen the air.
In a personal aromatherapy inhaler. For a quick pick-me-up, add 10-15 drops to a personal inhaler and inhale throughout the day when needed.
In household cleaning products. Add 10 drops of Lemon Essential Oil and 1 cup of vinegar to a spray bottle and fill the rest with distilled water. This works great as a natural glass and mirror cleaner. We also will put about 10 drops in a sink full of soapy water to wash our countertops.
