Lemon oil has many therapuetic benefits. It supports the digestive system, and can relieve occasional heartburn and nausea. It can help your body detox, and it also supports your immune system, respiratory system, circulatory system, and excretory system. But my favorite thing about this oil is that its an excellent tool you can use to make your home chemical free from both beauty products and household cleaners

Important Tip: Never use plastic to mix or store essential oils. Don’t let lemon oil in particular touch plastic because it eats away petrochemicals and will ruin your container.
Cheer Up – Using lemon oil aromatically can help boost your mood. When you inhale essential oils, the molecules travel up your nose directly to your limbic system, the part of your brain that holds memories and emotions. Smell directly from the bottle, add a few drops to your diffuser, or mix with water and spray all over the house to alleviate the blues. And as a bonus, it will make your house smelling amazing at the same!
Detox Drink – Add 1-2 drops of Lemon Vitality to a glass of water every morning to support you digestive system and help your body detox!
Lemon Sugar Scrub – Lemon oil is known for its ability to combat rough dry skin and leave it feeling silky smooth, making this exfoliating scrub extremely effective! Combine 1/2 cup of coconut oil or olive oil, 1/2 cup of sugar, and 10 drops of lemon oil.

Honey Lemon Lip Scrub – Like I said above lemon oil is really good for skin, but so are lip scrubs. I am a big fan of lip scrubs because they replace the need for chapstick. Mix together 3 tbsp of sugar, 1 tbsp of coconut oil or olive oil, (optional) 1 tsp of honey, around 1-4 drops of lemon oil.

Say Goodbye to Cellulite – Mix a a tbsp of coconut oil with 5-7 drops of lemon oil and apply to affected areas. Remember how I said lemon oil eats away at petrochemicals? A lot of people believe that cellulite is really just petrochemicals stored up in our fat cells.

Soft Feet – If you happen to have extremely rough skin on your feet, rub a few drops of lemon oil on them every day to soften them.

Natural Hair Highlighter – Get ready for golden locks!!! Rub a couple drops of lemon oil in between your palms and then run hands over hair. Or, combine a few drops of lemon oil and water in a glass spray bottle and spritz hair. For best results sit out in the sun. Test these on a small strand of hair first just to make sure you get your desired results.

Natural “Windex” – Fill a spray bottle with half water, half vinegar, and 5-10 drops of lemon essential oil for an all natural way to keep windows clean and pretty looking!

Furniture Polish – Makes cabinets or wood furniture look new again (I’m dead serious it’s kind of surprising how much of a difference it makes.) Test first on a small section of wood to make sure you will receive desired results.


Sticky Messes – A drop of lemon oil can help remove label residue from jars, gum from hair, or even things like crayon stains on the walls or carpet!

Homemade “Bleach” – Make your sink look brand new! Combine 4 cups of water, 1/2 cup hydrogen peroxide, and ten drops of lemon essential oil and let it sit in sink for 15 minutes.

Leather Protector – Add a few drops of lemon oil to a cloth and rub down anything made of leather to protect it and keep it from splitting!
