2. 20 drops of Lavender.
3. 20 drops Eucalyptus.

3. 20 drops Rosemary
4. 1 ts Vodka or Rubbing Alcohol
5. Vodka will make the smell linger longer.

Permanent Marker Remover:
1. 1-2 drops of Rosemary, Lavender or Tea Tree oil on a paper towel or Q-tip.
2. Rub in a circle motion.
Note: I have a 1997 Super Breakout handheld game. It use to have my maiden name written on the back of it. I used Rosemary oil and a Q-tip to remove the permanent marker ink. No residue left behind.

Pain Relief Cream:
1. Melt 1/2 cup of coconut oil and 2 ts. of beeswax in a double boiler and remove from heat.
2. Add 10-12 drops Lavender oil.
3. Add 10-12 drops Rosemary oil.
4. Add 5 drops Eucalyptus oil.
5. While still in liquid form, spoon in to the little travel containers found at Walmart.
6. Pour remainder in to the 8 oz. jar.
Note: I use this cream on my sore joints. Warm the glass jar in warm water to refill the travel jars.

Headache Relief Oil:
1. 1 drop of Lavender or Rosemary rubbed on the forehead will relieve headaches.
2. Combine lavender, rosemary and carrier oil in a roll-on bottle.
Note: I get headaches almost daily, I dislike using pain relieving pills and they don't work on me. I have noticed that lavender oil will calm me down when I'm going through depression.

Vinyl Siding and Mold Cleaner:
2 Cups Water
40 Drops Lemon oil
1. Lemon oil is anti-bacterial. If using a piece of a old dark colored tee shirt, the dye will bleed.
2. Soak a old rag in water, squeeze water out and wipe down the vinyl.
