doTERRA Lemon Essential Oil youtube
Citrus limon, essential oil powerhouse is cold pressed from lemon rinds to preserve its delicate nature and potent properties. Lemon is known as a powerful aromatic, topical, and internal cleanser and can be used to compliment many other oils. Diffusing lemon in a room can cleanse the air and uplift mood. It can also be used on surfaces throughout the home as a non-toxic cleaning booster.
Some of the therapeutic properties of lemongrass include: anti-bacterial, anti-biotic, antiseptic, anti-viral, astringent, diuretic and disinfectant.Lemon oil has many uses.
- It is a powerful antiseptic, and is cleansing to the environment (home or office),
- It has antiseptic-like properties, and contains compounds that have been studied for their effects on immune functions.
- It may serve as an insect repellent,
- It can be an effective means to improve circulation.

- To clean and increase the shelf life of fresh fruit, fill a bowl with cool water and 2-3 drops of lemon oil. Drop your cleaned fruit into the water and stir. Be sure all surfaces of the fruit contact the lemon water. If you have an apple, and only want to eat half of it at that time, you can also put a drop of lemon oil on the part you want to save. It will prevent oxidation (browning) of the fruit, and adds a really nice flavor to the apple.
- To sterilize cutting boards, counter tops, cupboards and table tops, add 2-3 drops of lemon oil to water and spray them. Or, you could just add the oil to a pan of water, soak a cloth in it for wiping down surfaces.

- Put a drop of lemon oil on oily skin or acne, to balance sebaceous glands (oil glands). It offers other benefits for the skin, and can be added to lotions or creames to improve skin tone and texture.

- Put 10-15 drops of lemon oil in each gallon of carpet cleaning solution, to help pull out stains and brighten the rug. This also leaves a fresh smell in the room. Mixing several drops of lemon oil into baking soda, and sprinkling it over the carpet before vacuuming is also very effective. (It works for your dog, too; although I don't recommend the vacuuming part. A brush works just fine.)
