Lemon Essential Oil

Let’s talk about Lemon Essential Oil ! 🍋🍋🍋🍋

Did you know that historically, Lemon oil has been used to fight food poisoning, malaria and typhoid epidemics, and scurvy (in fact, sources say that Christopher Columbus carried lemon seeds to America––probably just the leftovers from the fruit that was eaten during the trip.)
Lemon oil can affect the digestive, immune and respiratory system when

applied to the skin, ingested or diffused into the air.

Some of my favorite uses for lemon oil:
– In my water to support detoxing my body
– In my margaritas to support detoxing my brain. (Kidding, it just tastes amazing)
– As nail polish remover
– As sticky tag removed
– Mixed with peppermint in the diffuser as my #hustleblend
– In tea with thieves when we feel gross
– Mixed with thieves cleaner for a lemony fresh dusting spray
-Laundry – In case you leave your laundry sitting in the washer too long, just add a few drop of lemon EO and your clothes won’t get that nasty smell.-Clean Hands – Got greasy hands from working on your car or bike and regular soap isn’t doing the trick? No worries, just add a couple drops of lemon EO with your soap and get your clean hands back!
-Face-wash – Lemon essential oil uses for skin can can improve your complexion and leave your skin soft and supple. Lemon oil benefits skin by deeply nourishing. You can make lemon oil with baking soda and honey for a natural acne free face wash. (Note: Citrus oils are photosensitive. ALWAYS use sunscreen!)
-Promotes Fat-Loss – Putting 2 drops of lemon oil in your water 3x daily can support metabolism and weight loss.
-Immune Support – Lemon oil can support lymphatic drainage and help your overcome a cold fast, mix it with coconut oil and rub it on your neck.

Now, Imagine 75 lemons….

Got that image in your head?

That’s how many lemons are in ONE 15ml bottle of Young Living Lemon Essential oil. That’s an incredible commitment to you having pure lemon oil if you ask me.
Lemon also is super invigorating. One whiff of it in the morning and you are supporting your nervous system!

Lemons contain the powerful constituent LIMONENE. What’s a constituent? It’s not who you’re voting for next election but just means “ingredient”. Hit up some google for the goodness of limonene. We need it in our lives!
I could literally go on and on and on.

Fun fact: it takes 3000 lemon rinds to produce 35 oz of lemon oil. And that the oil is cold pressed from the rind?

More fun fact: lemon is one of the lucky 11 that come in our starter kit 🍋

It promotes health, healing, physical energy, and purification. Its fragrance is invigorating, enhancing, and warming.

Lemon oil y’all. It’s the 🐝 knees and I’m ALL about it!
