Description and Uses:

Lemon essential oil is a must for every household. It’s useful for a wide range of applications, it smells wonderfully fresh and vibrant, and it’s one of the most economical aromatherapy oils available.



Lemon essential oil comes, of course, from the fruit of the lemon tree.  The tree is believed to be a native of China, arriving in Europe by way of Persia. Later, Christopher Columbus brought the lemon seeds with him to Hispaniola (now Haiti/Dominican Republic).  Today, lemon oil is mainly cultivated in California and southern Europe.  

Lemon oil comes from the cold expression of fresh lemon peels and smells bright, fresh, and, lacking a better description, "lemony”.   It takes about one ton of fresh lemons to yield six or seven pounds of lemon essential oil.  Some of lemon oil’s many properties include: antimicrobial, antiseptic, astringent, diuretic, insecticidal and tonic.  

Because of its antimicrobial action, lemon is one of the most important oils for supporting the immune system.  Diffuse lemon into the air to help with the symptoms of colds, coughs and other respiratory problems.  Use lemon oil for facial toning and cleaning; its astringent qualities can be helpful for acne and excessive oiliness. 

Emotionally, lemon has a cheerful, positive aroma and energy, and can help lift a sluggish or negative state of mind.  It can also help with focus and concentration.  A study done in Japan showed that diffusing lemon oil throughout a busy office building reduced typing errors by 54%.  Try adding a few drops to a candle diffuser when learning new material or studying for an exam.

Lemon oil is also a fantastic addition to household cleansers and sprays.  Add a drop or two to your dish soap or general cleanser to brighten countertops, floors and bathrooms.  To combat mold and mildew, try adding four drops of lemon oil, three drops cinnamon oil and three drops tea tree oil to two cups white vinegar and spray onto affected areas.





Recipes Using Lemon Essential Oil:

Healthy Mouth Blend:

10 drops Peppermint essential oil
5 drops Spearmint essential oil
5 drops Cinnamon essential oil
5 drops Clove essential oil
5 drops Tea Tree or Manuka essential oil
5 drops Lemon essential oil

Blend these together, and add to 8 oz of water. We recommend adding a few drops of carrier oil (such as almond or jojoba) to the water to help disperse the essential oils. If you use just water you’ll need to shake well each time before using. After brushing, add a few drops to your toothbrush and gently brush teeth and gums. Rinse and spit–do NOT swallow! Or, use as a mouth rinse after brushing. You can adjust the strength to your taste by making the essential oil concentration stronger or more diluted.
