8 Amazing Benefits and Uses of Lemon Essential Oil

Lemon essential oil is derived from the rinds of fresh lemons, and within this oil holds all of the power contained in this incredibly useful fruit. Lemon essential oil holds benefits for the body, the mind, and the home, and you’ll find that there are a myriad of ways in which you can make the most of this essential oil.

8 Amazing Benefits and Uses of Lemon Essential Oil

  1. Body Cleanser

    By adding a couple of drops of lemon essential oil to your liquid body wash, you’ll give yourself a delightful fresh scent, you’ll feel revitalized first thing in the morning, and you’ll gain digestive and circulation benefits in the process. For best results, add lemon oil to a natural body wash with little scent, so you can enjoy the uninterrupted, fresh scent of lemon.
  1. Respiratory Relief

    When diffused and used in aromatherapy, lemon essential oil doesn’t just revitalize, it also clears. If you’ve been battling a cold, or it’s the peak of allergy season, adding a few drops of lemon essential oil to your nebulizing diffuser can help to clear the sinuses and lungs, and help to promote steady breathing. For a serious cold blend, mixing a few drops of lemon essential oil with a few drops of lavender and peppermint, can diffuse your congestion away in no time.
  1. Increased Concentration

    Lemon essential oil holds incredibly powerful clarity and concentration benefits. The scent of lemon is known to revitalize the senses, and your nebulizing essential oil diffuser is your key to unlocking the energizing power of lemon. Simply place a couple of drops of lemon essential oil into your diffuser, and allow the scent to lead your body to greater focus and concentration.
  1. Skin Care

    The antibacterial and antifungal properties that make lemon essential oil a powerful home cleanser can also work to gently and effectively cleanse your skin. For a bright, fresh, and healthy complexion, a couple drops added to your favorite bottle of facial cleanser can help to provide great results. For acne sufferers, lemon essential oil is particularly beneficial in its ability to eliminate bacteria, get rid of pore clogging dead skin cells, and lighten past acne marks or scarring.
  1. Shiny and Strong Hair

    Lemon essential oil can help to give your hair a boost, and all one needs to do is add a couple of drops to their shampoo or conditioner to absorb the benefits. To give your hair a quick shine, add a few drops of lemon essential oil to a spray bottle with water and spritzed on to the hair.
8 Amazing Benefits and Uses of Lemon Essential Oil
  1. Repel Insects

    When mixed with peppermint essential oil, lemon essential oil can help to keep insects at bay. Mosquitoes, flies, and moths are known to dislike the scent of lemon essential oil, and this oil blend provides a healthier alternative to traditional insecticide bug sprays.
  1. All Purpose Cleaner

    The myriad of chemicals found in traditional household cleansers have caused many folks to start searching for natural and effective alternatives. Lemon essential oil is naturally antibacterial and antifungal, making it the perfect safe and effective option you’ve been looking for. To make a cleanser that cleans kitchens, metal surfaces, dishes, and even bathrooms, simply mix a few drops of lemon essential oil to white vinegar and start cleaning!
  1. Secret Weapon Gunk Remover

    Gum, glue, stickers, or crayons are several impossible to remove substances which give us great heart ache when thinking about how to remove them. Not to worry, Lemon essential oil is a secret weapon no matter what you’re removing, whether it’s gum from hair or carpet, or sticky adhesive from jars and surfaces, a couple of drops of lemon essential oil on a cloth and applied gently can take care of the problem. For crayon on the walls, lemon essential oil can help remove the crayon without harming the paint underneath.
