Note: Citrus essentials oils are highly concentrated and are full of healthy acidic properties! Because of this, I recommend you use glass containers when storing them so they do not eat away any of the plastic.

    Dr Axe – I posted a question earlier, but don’t see it here now. Yikes. Anyway, I have a bacterial skin infection. Do you think it would be okay to use this solution topically? My dermatologist has prescribed antibiotics, but I don’t really want to take them. Thanks!

  3. Rickster on

    I have an acute case of bacterial skin infection. Could I use this topically rather than instead of ingesting antibiotics?

      It depends on if its superficial or internal. If its internal oil of oregano with echinacea could be beneficial or if it’s external, applying manuka honey with tea tree oil could be a good option. I would always consult with your physician

    From limited research, it appears ok to use lemon juice strained from lemons in place of lemon essential oil for cleaning products. Do you agree with this?

    I Make something very similar, but mine also has eucalyptus oil. I use it to clean and disinfect everything in my house…glass, granite counters, bathroom, kitchen, stove, microwave…leaves a fantastic fresh smell instead of a harsh chemical smell. Plus it costs pennies to make

    What brand of essential oils do you recommend? Have you heard of Youth Living! It is sooo expensive…. $30-$60 for .17 ounce. There must be a better alternative.

  7. Cyndi Toews on

    Lemon essential oil not lemon juice I am guessing… Glad that you are telling us to use a glass bottle – I am learning lots about essential oils and I know from first hand experience that lemon essential oil is really good at breaking down plastic!
