The survival uses of essential oils

Keep in mind that essential oils are concentrated and in most cases, must be used with a carrier oil or diluted with water, especially if applied to your skin.

Here are some essential oils with many survival uses:

Essential oils for cleaning

Eucalyptus essential oil can be combined with baking soda and the mixture can be used to clean items like mattresses, stuffed animals and other things that can't be washed normally. The smell of eucalyptus oil in your pantry or stockpile can also help deter pests.

Use lemon essential oil to disinfect. It can also be used to clean and disinfect most surfaces.

Alternatively, you can use orange essential oil to cut through grease and grime. It also leaves everything smelling fresh and clean. Orange essential oil is also an effective deterrent for ants.
