I Love Lemon. Do you?

I know it’s been a long time coming and I apologize. Technology had me in a headlock for a while, but I’ve beaten it off for now and I’m ready to go! Keep an eye out for me, though. Don’t let Mr. T sneak up on me when I’m not looking.

Shall we talk about Essential Oils?

The first 3 Essential Oils we used in our house were Lemon, Lavender and Peppermint. The combination of these three oils in the diffuser was spectacular when it came to my daughter’s seasonal irritations that kept a tissue box near her all the time.

Let’s look at Lemon Oil first.

“Lemon essential oil is cold-pressed from the rinds of lemons, giving its aroma all the brightness of the freshly picked fruit. Cheerful, sweet, and nostalgic, Lemon oil can eliminate odors and infuse your whole home with its clean, lemon-drop scent when diffused.”

With its bright and joyful aroma, Lemon oil benefits skin and hair as much as its aroma benefits your environment. Your teens can add a drop to their evening moisturizer to reduce the appearance of blemishes, while you can add it to your conditioner for an aromatic treat that smooths and shines the look of your hair. Because some citrus oils like Lemon can cause photo sensitivity, avoid applying to exposed skin before spending time outside.

Lemon oil uses:

  • Boost your home cleaning with the cheerful scent of fresh Lemons! Add a few drops to naturally derived floor, window, and surface cleaning solutions. Do not use Lemon oil on granite or stone, as it may etch the surface.
  • Make Lemon part of your beauty routine, adding it to skin care products to reduce the appearance of blemishes or to conditioner and DIY hair masques to give your hair a smoother, shinier look.
  • Diffuse Lemon alone or with other citrus and crisp-smelling oils such as Tangerine, Grapefruit, Orange, Bergamot, Rosemary, Tea Tree, Tarragon, and Eucalyptus Radiata to create an aromatic environment that is clean-smelling and positive.
