Lemon essential oil


Lemon Essential Oil

I love love love lemon essential oil. It smells amazing! It has wonderful properties and is very uplifting. I use it in my "flu bomb" blend, which I actually use for any sickness, we've never had the flu. I like to diffuse it with onguard. I have added it to a spray bottle with purify and water to freshen the interior of my car (which always has a "smell" we can't figure out with five kids) This freshens the interior and gets rid of random "mystery" smells. I put a drop in my water to detoxify. I add a drop to salad dressings. I use it in chicken marinade. It can replace lemon juice in any recipe. 

It takes 3000 lemons to produce one kilo of oil!!! Wow! Potent stuff. If applied to skin, it can be applied without dilution (neat) if desired, but do avoid sunlight for 12 hours.

Wow!!! So many uses for lemon essential oil! It is such a universal oil. I love it and I know you will too. Make sure you are ordering a pure essential oil. The fda only requires an essential oil to be 10% pure oil to list it as 100 % pure. The oils I use ARE 100% pure and are sourced from the best possible place for the particular plants to grow. 



Because the fda doesn't like anyone making claims they haven't "approved"
