Do you have a bottle of Lemon Essential Oil (citrus limon) and don’t know what to do with it? Well, there are many benefits “Certified Therapeutic Grade” Lemon Essential Oil offers.
Sneak Preview of how Lemon Essential Oil has been used for decades:
Ayurvedic medicine practitioners have been using lemon essential oil to treat a wide spectrum of health conditions for at least 1,000 years. In Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), lemon peel oil has the ability to combat conditions related to dampness, such as the common cold, Candida, infections, loose stools, respiratory issues and sore throats. Also, it has been used throughout history to support the health of the liver and as a natural remedy for gallstones. Lemon oil contains the compound d-limonene, which also has powerful cellular health-supporting properties.
Lemon oil is known for its ability to help cleanse toxins from any part of the body; it is widely used to stimulate lymph drainage, rejuvenate energy, purify skin and repel insects. The rind of the lemon is cold-pressed to extract its essential oil, which has a sweet, citrusy and sharp aroma that is uplifting and refreshing. Lemon is a powerful cleansing agent that purifies the air and surfaces, and it can be used as a non-toxic cleaner throughout the home. When added to water, lemon oil provides a refreshing and healthy boost throughout the day.
Here are 7 Uses Lemon Essential Oil offers:
1.) Lymphatic Drainage
Lemon oil is beneficial for boosting blood flow and soothing swelling in lymph nodes. Apply 1 to 2 drops topically directly over the lymph nodes or diffuse it.
2.) Mucus and Phlegm
Lemon oil helps to relieve congestion and eliminate mucus. It can also slow a runny nose and reduce the symptoms of allergies. Inhale lemon oil directly from the bottle or apply it topically, mixed with a carrier oil, onto the chest and nose.
3.) Mood Booster
Help lift mood, improve concentration and combat addictive tendencies by diffusing lemon essential oil, or apply it topically to the wrists and chest.
4.) Gallstone Fighter
To help pass painful gallstones, mix 1 quart of sauerkraut juice, 1 quart of tomato juice, 10 drops of lemon oil and 10 drops of peppermint oil. Divide the mixture into two jars. Drink one jar the first morning and the second jar the following morning.
5.) Immune Support
Lemon essential oil has bacterial-busting properties, and it helps the body get rid of toxins. Research shows that lemon oil protects the body against human pathogens such as E. coli and Salmonella. To boost the immune system, take it internally.
6.) Surface Cleaner
Disinfect and degrease your home, car or office with lemon oil. Add it to a spray bottle of water to clean tables, countertops and other surfaces. Lemon oil also makes a great furniture polish; simply add a few drops to olive oil to clean, protect and shine wood.
7.) Allergy Symptom Soother
Lemon oil can help to combat the symptoms of seasonal allergies and asthma. It works as a natural antihistamine, relieves excess mucus and cools down inflammation. Take 1 to 2 drops internally mixed with equal parts of peppermint and lavender oils for allergy relief.
Avoid direct sunlight for up to 12 hours after external application.
