34 practical Ways to Use Lemon Essential Oil


 You know what they say, "When life gives you lemons..."?

---this old No Non-cents Nanna says, "When you have Lemon oil_ CLEAN WITH IT and eat it , too! Keep reading for 34 for practical uses for CPTG doTerra's Lemon Essential Oil. 

(Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade Essential Oils.)


LEMON Home Use

1. A Cure for Laundry Neglect. Lemon essential oil takes out ALL odor when you forget and leave your load of laundry in the washer way too long!

2. Tame Oozy, Sappy Trees. Whether the sap is on your carpet, clothes or seeped into your skin, lemon oil is excellent for removing pine gum and tree sap.

3. Stop Grease in its Tracks. You just fixed your bike. Your hands are black and greasy. Soap alone won’t remove the grease, but lemon oil mixed with your soap will. Lemon oil is a great de-greaser!

4. Disinfect the Disgusting. You can add lemon oil to a spray bottle of water and attack what may be living in your range hood, on your tables, countertops and other surfaces. For some extra chemical-free firepower, a little vinegar is a traditional favorite.

5. Lose the Gas Mask. When you clean the gunky build up in your shower, do you practically have to wear a gas mask to survive the fumes? Go gas mask free and clean with lemon oil. Just a small amount of lemon oil will go a long way in removing hard water build up.

6. Nourish Your Leathers. Whether you ride a Harley in style or cherish the patina of your leather sofa at home, your leathers are not maintenance free. Use a lemon oil soaked cloth to preserve them, and prevent leather from splitting.

7. High Ho Silver. A lemon oil treated cloth is a great remedy for the early stages of tarnish on silver or other metals. You may not eat on silver every day, but bracelets, earrings, necklaces often need some love.

8. Deactivate the Sticky. Lemon oil can help you avert a hair cutting crisis the next time you deal with gum in hair. Got kids with obsessive addictions to stickers or temporary tattoos? Works for those too. Not for wide receivers.

9. Love Your Luster. Bring your furniture back to life with lemon oil! Just add a few drops of lemon oil to olive oil for a non-toxic furniture polish. Lemon oil leaves a beautiful shine, prevents fine wood finishes from drying out, and replaces lost moisture in antique woods as it penetrates worn finishes.

10. De-Smudge Your Stainless. You don’t need to hunt down that “single use” stainless steel cleaner anymore. Multi-use lemon oil is great for cleaning stainless steel appliances. You’ll love the way stainless looks and smells!

11. Clean Granite or Porous Stone. What is living in the pores of your natural stone counters or floors? Lemon oil cleans deeply, seeps into stone and leaves you with a “real fresh lemons” aroma, rather than that fake lemon chemical smell.

12. Energize your Brush. If your toothbrush seems a bit tired, add a drop of lemon and peppermint oils to chase away that run-down feeling.

13. Quarantine Pungencies. Moldy kid’s sneakers, a baby’s blowout, potty training … it all adds up to an less than desirable aroma. Diffuse or spray lemon oil and neutralize odors at their source!

14. Take the Spine Out of Scuffs. Got a scuff mark that just won’t go away? Lemon oil lifts scuff marks in remarkable ways!

15. Curtail the Dank, Musty or Mildewed. Things get stored away. Things get old. Things don’t see the light of day. Chase away that “old smell” and inject new energy with a good lemon oil wipe down.

16.Stop Cutting Board Bacteria Palooza. Cutting boards can harbor bacteria in your kitchen. Nobody wants to taste the chemicals you have in your cleaning closet, yet most people love the taste of lemon!

17. Control an Aphid Invasion, Naturally. Aphids — those pesky little bugs that dine on your roses and other plants. Lemon oil (or peppermint) with water in a garden spray bottle are a natural pesticide that kills aphids and their larvae on contact, but leave your plants looking lovely.

18. Spot-Free Dishes. Add a few drops of lemon oil to your dishwasher soap container with each load. Your dishes will come out looking like new… spot-free!

19. Refresh Bad Smelling Washcloths. When your kitchen washcloths smell foul and could use a boost, add lemon oil to your detergent, soak overnight, wash, dry and your kitchen will smell so much better! Cooking & Food


Cooking & Food

20. Energy Boost. For a quick, refreshing energy boost, combine a couple drops each of lemon essential oil and peppermint essential oil in a glass of water and drink up. Add a lemony taste to your bottled water.

21. Zest Up Your Sugary Indulgences. There are an infinite number of ways lemon oil can add a bit of freshness to your sugary savors: Lemon frosting • Lemon meringue • Sour cream lemon pie • Lemon cakes • Lemon tart glaze • Lemon squares  • Lemon cookies  • Breathtaking, awe-inspiring lemonade

23. Pep Up Your Entrees. With lemon oil, there are countless ways to make the bland zippy, or the blah peppy:  Roasted salmon & asparagus with lemon oil, Linguine & shrimp with lemon oil, Lemon oil drizzled over vegetables (especially broccoli),  Lemon garlic shrimp  … or to add a fresh kick to an already great salad. - See more at:

24. Preserve What You’ve Got. Use lemon oil in a spray to keep your cut fruit fresh until serving. Body & Mind

More lemon uses that won't leave you sour...

25. Ease Respiratory Gunkity Goop. When used with a humidifier, it’s a great way to slow wheezing, colds, cough, and other upper respiratory problems.

26. De-scratch Your Scratchy Throat. Adding a couple drops of lemon essential oil to warm water & honey can change that yucky sore throat feeling, slow a nasty cough, and douse a fever. Lemon oil fights bacteria, as well as viruses.

27. Honeylicious Hair Highlights …Chemical Free. Skip the expensive salon highlight treatment, and use lemon oil to create your own hair highlights. Just go in the sun after using with your hair product, and it will lighten your hair. Be careful, it works well!

28. Fight the Fungus Among Us. Tired of seeing that unsightly nail fungus? Lemon oil is great for nails, and can help fight against nail fungus.

29. Halt the Nervous Nellie, In You. When combined with lavender oil and diffused into a room, you’ll find you feel less anxious, a better mood, more even keel, and well … linear.

30. Clear Thinking & Clear Focus, Made Visible. A clear mind, a clean slate, a fresh outlook. It’s all good. Real good. Diffuse lemon oil and you got it.

31. Take the Heat Out of Cold Sores. When you have a gnarly cold sore that’s just begging for attention, douse it with a few drops of lemon oil and you’ll have a new best friend. 32. Nice Mood … No Really. Chase away the moody blues (not the band), with a bit of blah-reducing lemon oil. Whether you choose to diffuse it or apply topically, it’s hard to not improve your outlook with lemon oil around!

33. Was That a Crusty? Next time you notice hard, crusty skin on your feet, (e.g. corns, calluses or bunions) regularly add a few drops of lemon oil and you’ll soon have softened skin!

34. A Brighter Complexion. Lemon oil can help remove dead skin cells and exfoliate. For a homemade exfoliant, add 4-5 drops to a small amount of oatmeal and water for a homemade scrub. Feels great!

Making Sleepy time Sachettes For Colorado Springs Fund Raisers


Malika Bourne is honored to be teaming up with a Colorado Springs upcoming Fund Raising Events in  Colorado Springs 

We've only just begun to make craft items to be "sold" for donation outside local stores. 

What is a Sleepy-time Sachette?

A  Sleepy-time Sachette is a small pouch scented with an essential blend that not only smells wonderful, but enhances relaxation before bedtime. This is the creative idea of this blog's author, Malika Bourne. ( I use either doTerra's Lavander or SErinity Blend)

  • A  Sleepy-time Sachette can be slipped into a pillow case for calming  when you rest your weary head. (Not a toy. Caution choking hazard for small children . *These statements have not been evaluated by the Food and Drug Administration. This product is not intended to diagnose, treat, cure, or prevent disease.
  • A Sleepy-time Sachette can be placed in a dresser drawer to help deter bugs and give clothes a soft scent.
  • These make nice little Just Because Gifts.
  • Too Girly an aroma? No Problem! We'll be making pouches with Cedarwood for the guys to appreciate in manly colors.


  • Start by layering 100 cotton balls stuffed into a glass jar.
  • Then add 2 to 3  drops of doTerra's Serenity Blend onto 4 or 5 seperate layers so the oil is spread out.
  • Mix the cottonballs around. (I used a total of 15 drops to make the scent strong.)
  • Seal the jar tighly with a lid to sit for  a few days in cool dark cupboard.

Where in Colorado Springs in the No Non-cents Nanna? Desperatley Seeking Wheelchair Accessibility


Colorado Springs Businesses be on the look out for the No Non-cents Nanna!

Where in Colorado Srping is the No Non-cents Nanna?


Malika Bourne aka the No Non-cents Nanna is desperately seeking establishments that can accomodate  large wheelchairs with reasonable access from bus stops and  handi-cap parking in Colorado Springs , Colorado beginning in January 2015.

  • She has a list and is checking is twice to see what places are wheelchair friendly and nice.
  • A review will be posted on under Reviews
  • Photos will be taken and posted.
  • No Non-cents Nanna will point out barriers to moblity.

Why? Is No Non-cents Nanna the wheelchair police or something?

"The answer is something. I MUST do something to raise awareness for people who live with challenges to mobility.", says Malika Bourne the  mother of an adult son who is wheelchair bound.

"A  mind is a terrible thing waste. Legs may nolonger work, but that doesn't mean a person in a wheelchair doesn't deserve a life like other people enjoy. Life can turn on adime for anyone. WE BAbyboomers will need more asistnce to get around. People need to stop assuming."

"I'm fed up with so many barriers to moblitity my son. He needs to be able to socialize with other human being beside his Mommy. Even motherly love can't fix the fact that this once athletic man is stuck in inside for months need s a break from each other.   People don't seem to process why ADA has made laws to protect citizines with disablitites."

  1. Do you or do you allow customers park in handi-cap parking when you are not authorized to do so?
  2. Do you shovel your walks within 24 hours of snow fall? I snow being scooped onto the painted ramp area or impeding access for a wheel chair to use the curb cut outs?
  3. Do you leave shopping carts in the middle of sidewalks at stores?
  4. Do you employees leave boxes in the middle of the aisle while stocking then walk away?
  5. If products aren't easy to reach off of shelves are the employees alert to offer assitance?
"While I am out and about scouting for places where my son can manuever his wheelchair through, I'll be taking this opportunity to teach others about access to all people in pulbic places."

What is wrong with these pictures?

Below are photo taken 6 months ago on a mile long walk to the closest bus stops.

Where in ColoradoSpring is No Non-cents Nanna

This crack in the sidewalk is even more raised now than it was when this images was taken 6 months ago. What happens when falling leaves cover this or 6 inches of unshoveled snow.

The photo right above was one of many photos taken from our apartment window. Below in a different view that shows the bigger picture.Can you identify the barriers to moblity?

Unobstructed handi-cap parking is only exit for whellcahir bound amn

Do you know where this supposedly handi-cap accessible men's rest room is? HInt: Down town Colorado Springs. There is a little hallway to the left. Do you think every wheelchair can negotiate the turn?

Colorado Springs City building Mens restroom not accessible for this wheechair.

What are your thoughts on keeping sidewalks in good shape for the safety of all people walking?

Why would neighbors who have disabilties have the need to leave their homes?

Reviews of establishments in Colorado Springs will appear soon on
