Hi Andrea,

I’ve truly enjoyed your book. I’m quite excited to put many of the recipes to good use! I just have a question about using lavender hydrosol on the floor with small children. You mentioned that it’s not recommended for pets, but my 13 month old eats off the floor all the time (even though I do feed him most meals at the table:). Is it safe to use on a mop knowing that my son will lick the floor (when it’s dry)?
Thanks for writing such a useful, comprehensive book!

Hi Rebecca,

Thanks for your great comments about my book-I really appreciate it. Actually hydrosols are the perfect thing for the floor for pets and children. The essential oils are my concern and I use hydrosols instead for the safety of animals and small children. Check out P. 27. 🙂
