Time for another thrifty gift idea! This is perfect for new homeowners or even for people on your list who already have anything (including lots of beautiful wood furniture!). Check out this recipe for a simple homemade furniture polish that will nourish and protect wood furniture so that it can be enjoyed for many years to come!
- 10 drops Young Living Lemon essential oil
- 1/4 cup vinegar
- 1/4 cup olive oil
- 1 (16 oz) glass spray bottle (glass is a must, as essential oils can eat through plastic)
To make your homemade furniture polish, add your essential oil to the glass bottle, followed by the vinegar and the olive oil. Give it a very good shake, and remember to shake it thoroughly before each use. That’s it! 🙂
This product works so wonderfully well and is also so affordable. Your biggest expense is the spray bottle, which will last you for decades (as long as you don’t break it!). And currently lemon oil is about 4.5 cents/drop. Vinegar is super cheap, so 1/4 of a cup would cost mere pennies, and the cost for the olive oil just depends on the brand you use.
If you are new to Young Living and would like to try lemon essential oil, I’d love to help connect you! You can sign up directly for a retail membership if you only want to purchase lemon, or you can sign up as a wholesale customer if you’d like to try our premium starter kit (it comes with our 11 most loved oils, including lemon, as well as a diffuser and other goodies). I also place an order once a month and would be happy to include you in it if you’d like to try lemon at the wholesale price.
