When I hear the word lemon first thing I think of is fresh and clean. There are so many ways to use your lemon essential oil from cleaning to health benefits. This is one oil you will want to keep in stock. I actually use it daily for various reasons here are some of my favorites.
Anytime I am feeling a bit sluggish I either diffuse Lemon or put a drop into my diffuser necklace! On occasion I will put a drop in some water! Both of these are great pick me ups especially in the afternoons! Lately I’ve been combining Lemon and Grapefruit in my diffuser and it is a fabulous combo!
Add a drop of lemon oil to your daily moisturizer. Be sure to follow-up with a sunscreen since lemon oil (and all citrus oils) increase your sensitivity to the sun. I also don’t recommend going out for several hours after using Lemon Essential oil on your skin. Another great way is to make a scrub using Lemon Essential Oil! Check out my Lemon Sugar Scrub!
Creating my own cleaners was really the first things I started doing with my oils. I absolutely love cleaning with Lemon! It makes our small apartment smell like sunshine! Cleaning your toilet is easy just get a few tablespoons of baking soda and add a couple drops of Lemon then sprinkle on your toilet where needed. Spray some warm water on top and wipe away!
Of course Lemon smells amazing so it only makes sense that it would help with odors. My favorite way is to use it in my husbands shoes! Depending on how bad they are I may spray them with a witch hazel or alcohol and lemon mixture. This spray can be used anywhere!
Lemon is a fabulous degreaser just add it to a spray bottle with a tiny bit of baking soda and water and it will do the heavy scrubbing for you! No need to scrub and scrub. Just spray let sit for a few minutes and wipe away.
My absolute favorite way to use Lemon Essential Oil is to remove all those pesky labels to empty bottles. Here in Norway when you purchase cough syrup they are in these fabulous old school amber glass bottles that I love to reuse for my Herbal decoctions and tinctures. But the labels are a pain to remove. Lemon Oil to the rescue! Just soak them in hot water and a few drops of Lemon Essential Oil for a few hours and the labels wipe away easily and effortless!
