Lemon essential oil by Pure Body Naturals That I was sent to review
I really like the Pure Body Naturals lemon essential oil, it has a great pure scent, a few drops goes a long way, it is clear & such a nice size bottle for the price. It is very versatile & has been great in my DIY cleaning recipes, I think it mixes well in my cleaners rather it is a vinegar cleaner, borax cleaner or peroxide cleaner, just add a few drops to my mixture in a large spray bottle & harness the antiseptic & disinfectant power of this amazing essential oil at the same time allowing it to fill the room & give you the aromatherapy benefits as well.
