DAY 01: Lemon Essential Oil

Lemme tell you a little somethin' about Lemon Essential Oil...

A few months ago, life gave me Lemon and I did more than make lemonade.

I popped lemon in my diffuser and purified the air in every room of my new apartment. I swapped a squeeze of lemon in my morning water for a drop of oil (did you know that the acid in lemon juice can wear away the enamel on your teeth?!) and my elbow grease was the only kind of grease left in my kitchen when I added a few drops of lemon oil to my DIY spray and wipe bottle (you can create your own spray and wipe using Lemon essential oil, white vinegar and water). Want to know why our lovely friend Lemon can do all of that?

Because Lemon is a natural:
  • Antibacterial
  • Antiseptic
  • Antioxidant
  • Disinfectant
  • Degreaser
Source: dōTERRA

Here are your Lemon essentials: 

Sourced from: Sicily, Italy

Plant part: rind (peel)

Extraction method: cold pressed

You can enjoy lemon:
  • Aromatically pop a few drops in your diffuser to brighten the mood as lemon will cleanse and purify the air. Adding Lemon to your diffuser while studying or working is also a great way to mentally alert.
  • Topically You can rub over the bridge of your nose when you have a cold or to the sole of your feet when you are detoxing or simply a few drops into the palms of your hands and breathe in.
  • Internally Adding a few drops of lemon to your water or add to your cooking (think hummus or cheesecake!) 

The cheerful, citrusy aroma of Lemon uplifts and engages. As soon as I open the lid of my dōTERRA Lemon Essential Oil and breathe in I instantly smile. This oil just smells so. damn. good. 

Let's talk about feelings for a moment.

Known as the ‘oil of focus’ Lemon aids in concentration and mental flexibility. If you are experiencing any of the following emotions, Lemon may be a support for you with confusion, lack of focus or joy, mental fatigue or feeling disengaged.

Inviting a little lemon into your life can improve your focus, increase your energy levels, mental clarity and joy, and give you a greater sense of alertness.

Getting so excited to try my lemon oil! Knowing that this is the first oil you blog about reaffirms that it was a great “starter” oil for me! Really appreciate that you include where it is sourced as well.
