Q: What is the least painful way to remove a stuck-on bandage?
A: None of the above. Put a little Lemon essential oil on it and it will glide right off. No tears.
Lemon oil is one of my absolute faves. It removes ANY sticky mess; think price stickers that won't budge, temporary tattoos, gum in hair, gum on clothes, glue on the counter tops, permanent marker on the car door... Can you tell I have little kids?
The cool thing about citrus essential oils like lime, grapefruit, orange, tangerine, citrus fresh, and lemon is that they can assist in the break down of petrochemicals, or teeny tiny plastic molecules.
Since plastic is all around us, sometimes it can even build up in our bodies making it difficult to lose weight and can even throw our systems out of balance. That is why I also use a drop of Lemon in my drinking water. Doing so helps to purify the water, helps with weight loss, and makes me feel more energized.
What's your favorite way to use Lemon oil? I'd love to hear from you. And be sure to share with any mom (or dad) that has a sticky mess on their hands.
P.S. Make sure you use high quality oils. I get mine from Young Living because they have an extraordinary commitment to purity and quality. If you don't have any essential oils yet, be sure to visit the Essential Oils tab and check out how you can get a starter kit and get your oils at 24% off the retail price. And remember, the Premium Starter Kit already comes with Lemon!
