Lemon Essential Oil Uses

I use lemon EO a lot! Skin care, cleaning, deodorizing..the list goes on and on. This is another scent that just makes me happy as soon as I smell it. It pairs well with a lot of different oils so it's in my diffuser a lot. Here are a few suggestions of how you can use lemon EO.

  1. Anxiety: Diffuse a few drops of lemon EO to reduce anxiety and stress
  2. Face mask: 1 tsp coconut oil + 1 drop lemon. Apply to face and let sit for 15 minutes. Rinse with warm water. Avoid sun for a few hours (lemon is photo-toxic, making your skin susceptible to damage, such as sunburn or blistering)
  3. Gum in hair?: put a few drops lemon oil on hair to help remove gum
  4. Musty clothes: add 6 drops to the rinse cycle for clothes and towels
  5. Morning sickness: inhale lemon EO to relieve nausea and vomiting
  6. Odors: put a few drops of lemon EO on cotton balls and place in smelly areas of your home (refrigerator, bathroom drawer, trash bin, etc..)
  7. Greasy stove tops, counters, dishes, etc..: mix 20 drops lemon with 1 cup vinegar in a 16oz glass bottle and top with water. Spray grease spots and wipe with damp cloth
  8. Dental health: place a drop on toothbrush with toothpaste to boost oral health
