Lemon Oil Uses

Lemon oil is another essential oil that I use on a daily basis.   I keep it on my kitchen counter so it’s handy when I need it.   I add it to my drinking water, diffuse it, and use it for cleaning all sorts of things.

But wait,  there’s more…

Genuine lemon oil is anywhere from 65 to 72% d-limonene, a molecule found in nature that supports overall health and may support normal immune function.

Its refreshing aroma is invigorating,  enhancing,  and warming.

Lemon oil has been widely used in skin care to cleanse skin and reduce wrinkles.

More uses:

  • Use 6 drops of lemon oil and 6 drops of Purification oil in a squirt bottle mixed with distilled water to use in the bathroom as an air freshener.
  • Use 1-2 drops of lemon oil to remove gum, oil, grease spots or crayon.
  • Use 1 drop of lemon oil to add flavor to baked goods or beverages.
  • For homemade lemonade,  ream 1/2 an organic lemon,  add 2 drops of lemon essential oil,  stevia or agave to  taste;  add 2 cups of pure water.
  • To clean and increase the shelf life of fresh fruit,  fill a bowl with cool water and 2-3 drops of lemon oil.  Drop your cleaned fruit into the water and stir.
  • Add a drop of lemon oil to your dishwasher before the wash cycle.
  • Rub a drop of lemon oil on your hands after using a public bathroom.
  • Rub a drop of lemon oil to clean a butcher’s block or other cutting surfaces.
  • Put 10-15 drops of lemon oil in each gallon of carpet cleaning solution to help pull out stains and brighten the rug.

Of course,  when ingesting essential oils,  only use authentic,  unadulterated essential oils.   For that reason,  I use and recommend Young Living essential oils.

**Safety Data:   Avoid direct sunlight for up to 12 hours after use.


Citrus Fresh

Citrus Fresh is one of the essential oil blends I use all of the time.

I love to put 4 or 5 drops of Citrus Fresh in my water. It makes a delicious, refreshing drink for hot summer days.  If you like citrus and mint then you will absolutely love this blend. It contains five different citrus oils plus spearmint essential oil for that minty after taste.

As with all of Young Living’s essential oils, we reap a variety of benefits from using this oil blend.

First of all, it is an excellent addition to any cleaning routine. Its cleansing properties make it perfect for cleaning surfaces and purifying the air when diffused.  If you have those hard to remove black scuffs on the floor, they will easily wipe up with a drop or two on your cleaning rag.

On a physical level, Citrus Fresh supports the immune system and lymphatic system.  This energizing blend was designed to be taken as a dietary supplement.

Citrus Fresh, along with grapefruit, orange and tangerine oils, is a blend that we should be using often.
