Lemon | Essential Oils 101

Friday, April 01, 2016



Last week I started an introduction to Essential Oils and then shared how to use them  along with some safety tips! Today, I am sharing the first oil with you and we will pick up the pace for next week. I will be sharing an oil post along with my other regular scheduled posts daily! Today I am sharing LEMON! If you are a Lemon lover, please share your favorite Lemon EO tip in the comments section or email them to me and I'll add them here!



  • Lemon retails for $14.80 (15ml) and includes the naturally occurring constituent limonene. Research that!
  • Lemon is a dietary supplement that enhances the flavor of foods and water. 
  • A key ingredient in many popular products, including Thieves, Ningxia Red and Inner Defense. 

10 Amazing Uses for Lemon Oil


  1. Laundry – If you, like me, accidentally leave your laundry sitting in the washer too long, just add a few drops of lemon EO and it will refresh them for a great smell.
  2. Boost Your Hand Soap – Regular soap isn’t doing the trick? No worries, just add a couple drops of lemon EO with your soap and get rid of tough to remove grime and oils
  3. Natural Cleaner – Want to steer away from alcohol and bleach to disinfect your counter tops and clean your moldy shower? Add 40 drops lemon oil and 20 drops tea tree oil to a 16-oz spray bottle fill with pure water (and a little bit of white vinegar) for a traditional cleaning favorite.
  4. Teeth Whitener – Mix lemon essential oil, baking soda and coconut oil and rub on your teeth for 2 minutes and then rinse for natural teeth whitener.
  5. Face-wash –   You can mix lemon oil with baking soda and honey for a natural face wash. 
  6. Wood and Silver Polish – A lemon oil-soaked cloth will also help spruce up your tarnished silver and jewelry!  Lemon oil for wood cleaning is also great.
  7. Goo-Be-Gone – Un-stick the sticky goo your kids leave behind with stickers and gum with lemon oil.
  8. Support your metabolism – Putting 2 drops of lemon oil in your water 3x daily can support metabolism.
    • TIP: Mix Lemon with a couple of drops of Lavender and Peppermint and inhale or diffuse. It smells amazing and your head will feel so clear! 
  9. Improves Mood – Diffusing lemon essential oil in the air can lift mood!
  10. Immune Support – Lemon oil can support lymphatic drainage (every heard of putting lemon in your tea?), mix it with coconut oil and rub it on your neck.
