Lemon Essential Oils

Hello All   I have been working with essential oils for over 8 years now.  I love everything about them, from their smells to the healing powers that they offer, to the many uses that a few drops of oil has. 

Today we are going to talk a little bit about Lemon Essential Oil and the uses for it.

Lemon is a very versatile oil. It smell wonderful and is uplifting.  Some of the things that this oil is used for is many things.  Here are just some of the things you can use it for:

Use 1 drop of lemon oil to add flavor to baked goods or     beverages.

 

For homemade lemonade, mix 2 drops of lemon oil, 2 tablespoons of honey and two cups of pure water in a blender.  Adjust the amount of each ingredient to suit your own taste.

 

For corns, callouses or bunions, rub on a drop of lemon oil, mornings and evenings.

 

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.  Be sure all surfaces of the fruit contact the lemon water.  If you have an apple, and only want to eat half of it at that time, you can also put a drop of lemon oil on the part you want to save.  It will prevent oxidation (browning) of the fruit, and adds a really nice flavor to the apple.

 

To sterilize cutting boards, counter tops, cupboards and table tops, add 2-3 drops of lemon oil to water and spray them.  Or, you could just add the oil to a pan of water, soak a cloth in it for wiping down surfaces.

To disinfect your dishcloth and kill germs, soak it overnight in a bowl of water with a drop of lemon oil. 

 

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.

 

Use a paper towel, soaked with several drops of lemon oil, to sanitize bathroom fixtures.

 

Place a drop of lemon oil on cold sores, herpes or other mouth ulcers, to lessen pain and aid healing.  (What also works wonders for this is Melissa oil.)

 

Put a drop of lemon oil on gums that are bleeding because of gingivitis or tooth extraction.

 

Put a drop of lemon oil on oily skin or acne, to balance sebaceous glands (oil glands).  It offers other benefits for the skin, and can be added to lotions or creams to improve skin tone and texture.

Rub several drops of lemon oil on cellulite, to improve circulation and help eliminate waste from the cells.

 

Rub two drops of lemon oil topically onto the feet, to clear athlete’s foot.

 

Rub several drops of lemon oil on varicose veins, to improve circulation and relieve pressure on the veins.

Rub a drop of lemon oil on a wart, morning and night, until it disappears.

 

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.  This also leaves a fresh smell in the room.  Mixing several drops of lemon oil into baking soda, and sprinkling it over the carpet before vacuuming is also very effective.  (It works for your dog, too; although I don’t recommend the vacuuming part.  A brush works just fine.)

 

Not all essential can be taken internally.  Lemon is one that can, but always be sure purchase, certified therapeutic grade oils.
