This blog is a continuation of 14 Ways to Better Health With Essential Oils  – #1 Your Why.

We’re going to get started with one of the most popular Young Living essential oils, Lemon Essential Oil.

The Benefits of Lemon includes cleansing. Lemon consists of 68 percent d-limonene, and may support a healthy circulatory system. It has cleansing and purifying properties.

Lemon is also known for its ability to clean toxins from the body. Drink in water everyday to reap the benefits

Here’s some other uses you might not have known about.

10 Uses for Lemon Essential Oil

  1. Cleansing Skin Naturally

    When you incorporate lemon essential oil into cleansers and scrubs, your skin is cleansed naturally.

  2. Wake Up Your Brain

    This is a great oil to diffuse as a pick me up in the morning. It also supports a healthy body when you add a drop to your water each morning.

  3. Soften Skin Callouses

    Cool right?!

  4. Stain Remover

    Lemon Essential Oil naturally remove stains from fabric – even old grease stains!

    Apply in the lymph areas to support them!

  6. Freshen Air Naturally

    Put 6 drops of Lemon essential oil in a spray bottle, along with 6 drops Purification essential oil and enough water to dilute, and you’ll have an all-natural air freshener that can be used in any room.

  7. 1-Ingredient Hand Freshener

    If you’re in a rush and need to freshen your hands, just rub a drop of Lemon essential oil over your hands.

  8. Clean Glass Dishes Naturally

    Lemon essential oil is essential for getting the “stink” (in my case from fermenting garlic!) out of glass dishes.

  9. Add to Your Tea

    Put a drop of Lemon in a cup of hot water with honey – YUMMY!

  10. Get Rid of Sticky Residue

    Drop gum onto the carpet? Did your child just color all over the wall? Lemon essential oil will take all of that sticky gunk off.
