    What does the sodium citrate (baking soda + citric acid) do besides emulsify the lemon oil? It has no value as a cleaning agent. The bubbling does nothing. It just releases CO2.

    Please know that many essential oils are toxic to cats, not just orally but also if they are absorbed through their skin. Peppermint oil is one. For more info see this article:
