Who would have known that Lemon Essential Oil could be such a winner?!
Being a citrus it has that uplifting, refreshing scent, and most people know it’s great for cleaning in the kitchen and the bathroom. But did you know what else lemon essential oil can do? As with other essential oils, lemon is multipurpose and I’ll give you a few examples.
It’s great for detoxing. On an empty stomach put one drop in your morning water, add some ginger as well and maybe a little honey to get the body going and drive those toxins out of your organs. This also helps stimulate your digestion and circulation and gives you an energy boost.
Lemon oil is said to help relieve muscular and joint aches and pains, this includes arthritis. My mother was led to believe that citrus is full of acids that cause arthritis. As we now know, lemon is actually alkaline, with greatest benefits on an empty stomach.
Lemon is also good for your skin, varicose veins, cellulite, broken capillaries. While lemon is refreshing and uplifting, it’s also calming. I experience this whenever I breathe in the scent of any citrus.
Lemon essential oil is great for removing sticky residue and can be used as a furniture polish. Simply add a few drops to a cloth to clean wood and leather.
The best is yet to come. I recently produced a video proving the power of dōTERRA’s lemon essential oil in removing an old blood stain. This stain had had a few attempts at removing it and nothing was working. All I did was liberally apply the lemon oil directly to the stain and put it straight into the wash. That’s all! I can’t tell you how nervous I was pulling that top out of the washing machine on video. OMG! My excitement was so clear the person taking the video was trying to calm me down! LOL!! See for yourself..
I have thrown away all of my other stain removers, and I had natural ones too. I only use dōTERRA’s Lemon Essential Oil now!
