Other Uses For your favorite Essential Oil

Water Filter
add a few drops of your favorite oils like lemon pepermint or clove to the post filter side of a water purification system this will not only add to the purification process but add to the taste of the water.

Dishwashing soap
use one of your favorite oils like lavender, lemon, bergamot, or orange in your dishwashing soap to add fragrance and antiseptic properties to the soap.

add a 5 ml bottle of your favorite oil to a gallon of paint to counteract the smell of the paint the oil will completely disipate in the drying process and not leave any oil spots on the walls.

Essential oils add to the cleanliness and fragrace of your laundry but you may also be interested to know that adding 20-25 drops of eucalyptus to each load will effectivly eliminate your dust mite population. another great benifit of using oils is that in place of toxic fabric softeners you could use a damp wash cloth with 10-12 drops of a favorite scent. melaleuca works great here.
