Fresh fruit and veggies are so important to our diets and these days with so many chemicals and pesticides being used organic is always best. Unfortunately not everyone's budget can stretch that far. However that doesn't mean we have to give in and consume our fruit and veg with a dose of extra nasties!
Here is a quick and inexpensive way to wash your supermarket fruit and veg, getting rid of those nasties and as an added bonus will prevent pre-mature ripening meaning they last longer and you have less wastage! Winning :-)
10 drops doTERRA Lemon Essential Oil
1 cup raw apple cider vinegar
Fill your sink with cool water and add your essential oil and vinegar. Pop your fruit and veg in the sink and allow to soak for 5 -10 mins. Give them a good wash with a soft cloth and then rinse under clean water and allow to air dry. Viola!
