...And God said, “Let the earth sprout vegetation, plants yielding seed, and fruit trees bearing fruit in which is their seed, each according to its kind, on the earth.” And it was so. The earth brought forth vegetation, plants yielding seed according to their own kinds, and trees bearing fruit in which is their seed, each according to its kind. And God saw that it was good...

Citrus Surface Scrub Recipe

I needed to scour the kitchen sink today, it needed a good cleaning, and was looking icky, so I came up with this simple all natural scrub recipe. I imagine it would work great on counters and bathroom surfaces too!

Kitchen Citrus Surface Scrub
1/4 cup baking soda (you could also use borax)
1/4 salt
1-2 tablespoons dried orange peel - optional. *
10 drops tea tree essential oil
5 drops essential oil of choice
Mix thoroughly, sprinkle liberally over wet surface and scour.

*The orange peel is just for added grit and to make it smell nice, I imagine any hard herb or dried citrus peel would work great, try dried rosemary, or maybe grapefruit/lime/lemon peel!

If you have fresh citrus on hand, try that instead! Roll the fruit to release juice, slice in half, and rub on your surface before applying your scrub.
