Have lemons?

Make Lemonade! OR Lemon essential oil!

Yup, that’s right. I’m back to talking about my little buddies. They are just extra tools in my tool-kit. They are not a “save all” “answer to everything”. But they are AWESOME, so I’m here to share some more with you today!

Today we are talking about Lemon. I wanted to share about Lemon because I don’t think we talk about how awesome this plant is enough, and then what a great oil it makes! And also, a  family member of mine ordered this oil and I wanted to provide some information for her! 😉

Lemon Essential Oil

Anyway… back to lemon.

Has anyone ever washed their cutting board with half a lemon and some salt? You know how awesome it works, right?

It’s such a purifying little fruit, a gift from God, that everyone who had lemons available to them from the beginning of time has used to clean and keep themselves healthy!

I love the smell of it too! And I have very fond memories of walking around Capri (which is covered in lemon trees) when I was studying in Italy, tasting lemoncello with a dear, dear friend.

yup. i thought you all needed some pictures of Capri right then and there. And me from 2006.

Alrighty, now that we’ve gotten that out of the way, let’s talk about the essential oil!

It is exhaustive how much we could talk about Lemon EO, so I’m just going to share a few of my favorite uses. If you want to know more, ask me!

🍋Lemon Fun Facts: It takes about 75 lemons to make one 15mL bottle of Lemon Essential Oil. It is cold pressed from the rind rather than steam distilled. It is so high in Monoterpenes, you can use it to clean the blackest grime off of surfaces with ease! Young Living offers Lemon in the normal line as well as the Vitality line for consumption, but they are the exact same oil inside the bottles.

Lemon promotes feeling of fullness, stimulates creativity, cleans, purifies!, uplifts the body and mind, supports wellness(Vitamin C!) and cleanses toxins, energizes, aids in digestion, enhances flavor of food and drink…and the list goes on!

To use, {note: DO NOT take any oil internally that is not Young Living!} 🍋

  • Smell it! Boost your emotional system and make you feel happier. {hello Capri! lol}
  • Add to homemade hand soap for purification and the smell! Or just add to a water in a spray bottle to clean surfaces!
  • add a drop or two to your water glass for lemon water,  it helps you feel full.
  • I like to put a drop in a spoon of honey and mix in either tea, hot water, or eat straight up to help with a sore throat.
  • I really like to use it with peppermint and lavender to help with allergies! #bringonspring! Oh man does it help, you can make a rub with coconut oil to put on your chest to clear your sinuses, you can diffuse the mix, or you can take the three, a couple drops of each in a capsule.
  • Apply a drop to a greasy spot to disolve.
  • and a new idea I just learned: put a drop on your nail bed to make it stronger!

 

Young Living’s Lemon essential oil is made from the lemon rind so it is much easier on your teeth and stomach than regular lemon juice.

ps- as a PRECAUTION: Lemon and other citrus oils is photosensitive, meaning it will attract UV rays from the sun exposure. Avoid applying directly to the skin that will be exposed to the sun within 24 hours.

Young Living's Seed to Seal Promise is one-of-a-kind. No other company offers this kind of purity and potency.

*pss- if you find “cheaper” oils on the market, let me just warn you. A lot of them include synthetics and things that are actually horrible for your body. You can do your own research but I just ask you to be careful. The whole point of using essential oils is to have all natural ways to help your health, if you use the fake stuff, you may get hurt. If you want more info on that, let me know.
