Lemon Essential Oil is one of our favorites – and one of the most popular oils out there. It is included in our Essential 4-Pack which is our item this month for our Oil Of The Month Club members! 100% pure undiluted Lemon Essential Oil is a key to every oil collection, and we love it! Here are 5 reasons why you should love it too! With Lemon Essential Oil, you can:
1. Diffuse it
Lemon essential oil has been shown to support a healthy response to stress and is also believed to have focus- and memory-supportive and anti-depressant properties. Plus, it just smells amazing! Diffuse it alone or with other essential oils. We love diffusing Bliss and Lemon essential oil together for a great blend.
2. Apply on: cold sores, insect bites/stings, acne, callouses, etc.
Lemon essential oil has antimicrobial and antiseptic properties that make it a great choice in many types of skin care. Apply 1-2 drops via cotton swab and rub into the affected area at least once daily.
3. Clean with it
Cleaning is one of our FAVORITE applications for Lemon essential oil. You can add a few drops to some quality olive oil and make DIY furniture polish, add a few drops to your sink or dish washing soap for a de-greasing boost, apply directly to price tags and remove with NO RESIDUE, or use with coarse salt to clean your favorite wooden cutting board. It’s also fantastic for removing crayon from walls (for all you moms out there)!
4. Drink it or cook with it
Lemon can aid digestion, and many people also believe that it may be helpful in promoting lymph health. Add a drop or two to a glass of water or, if you’re feeling a cold coming on (and you’re out of Shield), add a few drops to a cup of warm water and drink up! This is perfect if you find yourself at home without the fresh fruit when a cold strikes. Lemon essential oil is also fantastic as an addition to baked goods, marinades, salad dressing – anything you would typically use Lemon in!
5. Make DIY LLP Allergy Blend.
Mix equal parts of Lemon, Lavender, and Peppermint essential oil (all found in your trusty Essential 4 Pack) and put a few drops in a glass of water or diffuse for some natural antihistamine activity!
