What is it Used For:

- Candle Making
- Skin Use - Perfume
- To Freshen Up a Room
Unfortunately we don't have any mosquitoes just yet. ;) There's snow on the ground right now. I have used it in a spray to freshen up my office.
Room Spray - Cleaner:
1. I steeped in different mason jars lemon, lime, grapefruit, and orange peels in white vinegar. I did this for a few weeks.
2. Then I put in 1/2 of the steeped vinegar, and 1/2 water in a spray bottle. It's not best to put essential oils in plastic, but it's much better than the 409 they always use. My nose didn't hate me!
3. Next I used drops of lemon oil in all, but the lime. I used Citronella in the lime cleaner. Guess what? No one complained about the smell. I just had different students fighting over what scent they wanted. I was expecting my boss to come in, and complain that it didn't smell CLEAN, but he didn't. Instead I heard, "It smells really good in here!" His wife that also works there said, "I think your cleaners are a hit!
Everyone was happy!
I can't wait to use Citronella for a bug spray. I seem to be a mosquito magnet. Seriously I get bug bites when Travis gets none.
A Little More About Citronella:
- It comes in a 4 ounce jar, which lasts a long time.
- A little goes a long way!
- It has a lid, and a glass dropper. I have to be honest, I usually throw the lid away, and keep the dropper in it.
$19.95, but on sale for $14.97. That's with Prime.
- All natural ingredients.
I received Up Nature Citronella mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.
