Wonderful, nothing quite like the versatile lemon-both tasty and practical!

Lemon E.O. is one of my favorite and so versatile! But caution using it in the sun, as it is photosensitive for your skin....
I like the dusting cloth recipe - i'll try it!
I put 6 drops Lemon E.O. in my cider vinegar hair rinse....
It's also an important ingredient in "Theives Oil"
