My Mom's Wonderful Homemade Organic Lemon Aromatherapy
When I was a young girl, my Mom did the most unusual amazing thing to clean the indoor air. She'd run the garbage disposal and gently throw in a few whole fresh lemons cut into wedges and let the water run. The natural lemon aroma filled the air of the entire house and smelled wonderful and beautiful! I remember this as if it were yesterday! She never sprayed any kind of synthetic deodorizer around the house to deal with odors or germs. She didn't believe in throwing away her money on such nonsense. She did the lemon aromatherapy in the kitchen at least three times a week and everyone who was in the house loved it! She did this with oranges and limes too! I used to think it was a bit odd and unusual, but thinking back to the indelible memory makes me smile at her creative ingenuity and down-to-earth simplicity! I'm very deeply grateful for the wisdom my Mom imparted to me as a young girl and it's largely because of her that I'm so down-to-earth.
