Lemon is a great oil that can be used in many different situations. It takes expressing the peels of 1,500 lemons to make one pound of lemon essential oil. It has antibacterial, antiseptic, astringent, insect repellent, bacteriostatic, and rejuvenating properties. Lemon helps stimulate your white blood cells. Lemon can be used to keep you slim, disperse cellulite, and keep wrinkles at bay! We use lemon when my family members are experiencing frequent nose bleeds. My daughter now goes to my essential oil closet and opens up the lemon to waft the scent to her nose when she feels she needs to. Not only can lemon be used to wake you up and stimulate your senses, it can also be used to relax your mind and help you sleep.
I like how Valerie Worwood describes lemon. “Its fragrance enables our meditations to be deeper and our prayers to take flight. The spiritual cleansing of lemon enables the entire psyche to react to the positivity in mortal as well as divine love.”
I use lemon in our Refresh and Headache Tamer blends and Mēm’s Marshmallow-Marigold Cream.
*Make sure to store essential oils in dark glass containers. I put this lemon in a clear container so you can see the beautiful color of the oil.
I am a wife and stay-at-home mom who enjoys making 100% natural body care products that will actually heal ailments using fixed oils and pure essential oils.
