Hey friends! I am SO excited to share with you some very practical, easy uses for one of my favorite Essential Oils: Lemon!
I love the fresh, citrus smell of Lemon… and there’s nothing like a smooth, sweet glass of Lemonade on a hot summer’s day! Or how about some delicious lemon bars?? But what if I were to tell you that Lemon packs a far more powerful punch than just a tart, summery flavor + scent? The good stuff actually lies in the rind of the lemon… That’s where you’ll find Lemon Essential Oil!
Lemon Essential Oil is cold-pressed from the rind, and it takes 3,000 lemons to produce 1 kilo of oil! That’s a lot of lemons! Regardless, this oil is SO inexpensive! It’s an absolute must-have for your kit of EO’s with it’s huge range of uses. I guess that’s why it landed in the Premium Starter Kit, right? 😉 Ready to dive into my top 4 favorite uses? Let’s go!
Whether you’re just getting started on switching to healthier living, or are a veteran and want a simple way to detox, try a drop or two of Lemon EO in your water daily. Not only is the taste fabulous, but it helps to detox your liver and boost your metabolism & immune system!
Note! When using Essential Oils internally, *always* check to make sure that the company producing your oils has integrity in their process, like Young Living’s Seed to Seal Promise. I love to use Young Living’s Vitality line for internal use of essential oils. It’s the same quality of oils, just labeled for internal use as a dietary supplement. Check out Lemon Vitality here!
Shine Bright like a Diamond
Ok, so this one is a little mind-blowing… did you know you can use Lemon Essential Oil to effectively + easily shine up your jewelry?? I was astonished at just how well it works!! I simply put 2 drops in a small bowl of distilled water, let my sterling silver ring sit for a few minutes, and then scrubbed with my tooth brush (a q-tip works well, too!). All of us Boyer Ladies polished up our rings that way the other day, and man are they shiny! Sometimes the simplest uses of EO’s are the most impressive.
Did you know that diffusing Lemon Essential Oil can help promote focus, clarity, and provide a mood-boost? And you just thought it smelled nice 😉 Simply add 5-8 drops to your diffuser, and diffuse away!
Want to ramp it up a bit? Try this: 3 drops lemon + 3 drops peppermint for a real pick-me-up! Fresh, Clean, Energized. Sounds good to me! 😀
Clean up those Pores!
I love this use! I’ve been applying just a drop of Lemon EO to my t-zone every night, and man does it work! I have a looooong history of enlarged, clogged pores around my t-zone, and I am SO thankful that I have finally found an effective way to finally get those bad-boys back in order 😉
Note! Watch out for 12 hour photosensitivity after apply Lemon EO topically! You won’t want to go out in the sun after applying this stuff, which is why I like to apply mine at night.
And finally, a happy-clappy infographic for your use + reference 😀 If you’re a YL oiler and want to share any of our images to promote your business, please contact us before you use! Thanks!
