Lemon oil! Let me just tell you. This stuff is amazing and really packs a punch. It takes 75 cold-pressed lemon rinds to make one 15ml bottle of Lemon essential oil. Young Living takes such care in producing, harvesting, distilling, and then testing their oils. Their hard work and all the science behind it can set your mind at ease. This is the good stuff, folks!
Young Living produces both Lemon Vitality oil and traditional Lemon essential oil. The Vitality line has a dietary label so we can educate and speak about internal usages, while the traditional line has a cosmetic label that allows us to speak about topical and aromatic usages. Both lines have the exact same 100% therapeutic grade Lemon essential oil. They just have different labels, so we can freely educate about all the ways it can be used!
Lemon essential oil contains d-limonene which is a powerful antioxidant that can support the immune and digestive systems. Lemon essential oil can also be beneficial to your skin. Are those laugh lines getting too deep? Blemishes on your face got you feeling like a teen? Try some Lemon essential oil. Like all the citrus oils, Lemon is super uplifting and fresh. The scent will trick you into thinking your house is actually clean. Lemon essential oil can be used to remove crayon, adhesives, gum and other sticky things from most surfaces; think of it as a natural Goo Gone. This oil is also amazing to use while cleaning. Put a few drops in your sink and scrub away. Your sink will shine, and your kitchen will smell glorious!
The Lemon Vitality oil can be used to enhance the flavor of food and water. Add a few drops to olive oil, brush it on your chicken, and grill away! Start your morning with a drop of lemon oil in a glass of water. It’s like summertime in a glass and a great way to support healthy detoxification and digestion. Regular lemon juice can be acidic but since Lemon essential oil comes from the rinds it actually promotes an alkaline state in the body.
I’m all about sharing! Sharing interesting facts, good restaurants, a good book, the list goes on! Another thing I love is finding practical ways to use my oils in my daily life. I’m going to combine the two just for you! My friend used her Lemon essential oil to make this amazing face/hand soap and loved it so much she made bottles for her whole family! I want to let you in on that recipe!
