lemon verbena perfume: all you need to start is 100-proof vodka. The vodka, as a carrier for your perfume, is almost completely odorless and evaporates quickly when used on the skin, leaving behind just the fragrance. Combine about 24 drops of lemon verbena essential oil with two teaspoons of distilled water and two teaspoons of vodka. Pour all ingredients into a dark glass bottle and let them steep for at least 48 hours. Shake the bottle occasionally.
Usea mix of 1 cup vinegar + 1 cup baking soda + a few squirts of dish soap in place of carpet cleaner shampoo. I pretreat any spots with oxyclean laundry spray. I have found that my homemade solution works better than commercial bought plus it doesn't leave residue in my carpets and is nontoxic and green. Can also add essential oils for scent.
