Today starts week nine of my 10 week series on using the everyday essential oils by Young Living. I’ve learned so much about these beautiful oils and I want to share what I’ve learned with you. This week I asked the members of my facebook group which oil they would like to learn more about and they picked Lemon Essential Oil!
About Lemon Essential Oil
If you are looking for an invigorating and refreshing essential oil, then lemon is what you need!
Lemon essential oil is derived from the rind of lemons. It takes 3,000 lemons to produce 1 kilo of this amazing, refreshing oil. Lemon oil works primarily with the digestive, immune and respiratory systems, is a tonic for supporting the nervous and sympathetic nervous system and promotes the overall healthy function of the body.
How To Use Lemon Essential Oil
- Diffuse a few drops of lemon essential oil to reduce bacteria, fungus, mold, and unpleasant odors in the air.
- Make your own non-toxic all purpose cleaner with lemon essential oil (click here for the recipe)
- Add 10–15 drops of lemon essential oil to a gallon of natural carpet cleaning solution to help pull out stains, brighten carpet and rugs, and leave a fresh smell in the room.
- Add 10-15 drops to water and use as a stain remover for laundry.
- Use 1–2 drops to remove gum, oil, grease spots, glue or adhesive, and crayon from most surfaces. Best natural Goo-Gone!
- Place a few drops of lemon essential oil on a cotton ball and put in the refrigerator, or garbage can to help eliminate odors.
- Add lemon essential oil to baking soda and water and use as an all natural soft scrub.
- For a natural furniture polish, add several drops to a half cup of olive oil or beeswax.
- Soak dish clothes in a bowl of water with 1-2 drops of lemon essential oil overnight to kill germs.
- Add to water or a smoothie for a refreshing pick-me-up. (SO tasty and uplifting!)
- To clean, increase the shelf life and prevent mold on fresh fruits and vegetables, fill a bowl with cool water and 2-3 drops of lemon essential oil. Place produce in water, stir around so all surfaces come in contact with the lemon
