You would be hard pressed to find a person that hasn’t experienced the bright, tart taste of a Lemon. Whether it was fresh-squeezed lemonade or lemon zest garnished on a dessert, they might be surprised to learn they were enjoying essential oils without even knowing. This abundant citrus fruit is extremely versatile and an excellent introduction to the world of EOs.
The next time you peel a lemon, lime, or orange take a piece of the peel and squeeze it. Just like juice coming from the pulpy insides, the rind of citrus fruit can be pressed to extract the natural chemicals the plant uses to protect itself. These fragrant essential oils can also be used to benefit and improve our lives.
Like other citrus oils, Lemon is a potent cleanser that is great for disinfecting the body and surfaces around the house. Make a safe, natural disinfectant for cleaning mold, bacteria, and other harmful germs by mixing 15 – 20 drops of Lemon with 16 oz. of water in a spray bottle. Just spritz on and wipe off to purify and sanitize.
Lemon essential oil is also great in an ultrasonic aromatherapy diffuser. Its energetic aroma will uplift your mood while eliminating odors to create a more healthy atmosphere. Diluted with a carrier oil, Lemon can be applied to the skin where its rich supply of limonene – a powerful antioxidant – can help reduce free radicals in the body. Its bright, fresh scent can also give a rejuvenating boost to the respiratory system.
Lemon essential oil is so universal that we include it in a special package for EO newbies – the Essential Kit of Lemon, Lavender, and Peppermint. These three oils are easy to use and make a great first step in discovering the power of essential oils. They are familiar, extremely beneficial, and show results quickly. From there, you can continue to expand your knowledge of essential oils and find your favorites among the wide variety PURELY™ has to offer.
