Hello, dear readers!

DIY essential oil fruit and vegetable wash recipe - simple!!

 

Pesticide residue is oil-based (petroleum), so simply rinsing your produce–while fine for removing dirt–is not enough to remove the pesticides. The water will simply roll right off. (Yes, organic is the optimal choice when shopping for your produce, but organic is not always available in all areas!)

But there’s good news here: citrus essential oils are able to remove pesticide residue from your fruits and vegetables. Score for essential oils!

You’ll begin to notice your fruits and vegetables taste much sweeter and less bitter once the pesticide residue is removed.
