Lemon Essential oil, Benefits & uses

Benefits of using lemon essential oil.

Lemon essential oil has a recognizable sharp lemon sweet.  It can be phototoxic so when used in a blend I recommended you use it at no more than 12 drops per 1 ounce/30ml. 

For the skin it can give a bright glow and improve lackluster complexions.  For the circulatory system it can be successfully used for spider veins and broken capillaries and to support a healthy circulatory system.  Therapeutically lemon is very diverse with an ability to be analgesic, antispasmodic, antibacterial, a powerful antioxidant and antidepressant.  This citrus essential oil is also used to support a healthy immune health.   Emotionally and energetically, lemon essential oil brings an element of sparkle to a blend and can help lift a cloud of depression or ease emotional tension. It invites happiness and positive energy wherever it goes

How to use lemon oil in house cleaning 

Lemon essential oil is one of my ‘go to’s’ for natural home cleaning.  The scent is refreshing and cleansing while the oil is also a great antibacterial! Keeping lemon oil and a few other essential oils like tea tree and eucalyptus on hand for antibacterial benefits helps you achieve a clean and aromatically enhanced home without using harmful ingredients. Creating your own safer cleaning alternative can be as simple as combining lemon oil with a few other natural ingredients.
