essential oils Apr 25, 2016

Lemon is one of my favorite essential oils because it has multiple benefits and uses. It’s a very cleansing and detoxifying oil, which makes it great for the home as well as your body.

Lemon is a powerful cleansing agent that purifies the air and surfaces, and can be used as a non-toxic cleaner throughout the home. Simply add a few drops of lemon to a spray bottle with water and clean your counters. It’s simple, cost-effective, and not loaded with toxic chemicals.

With certified pure therapeutic grade lemon oil, you can also benefit from internal use. I love starting the day with a glass of water with lemon essential oil. It’s very cleansing, detoxifying and supports healthy digestion. Not to mention, it adds delicious flavor to water. Simply add 1-2 drops of lemon to your glass of water. When added to water, Lemon provides a refreshing and healthy boost throughout the day.

Lemon is frequently added to food to enhance the flavor of desserts and main dishes. Taken internally, Lemon provides cleansing and digestive benefits and supports healthy respiratory function.

Lemon, along with other citrus oils are also wonderful for mood support. When diffused, Lemon is very uplifting and energizing and has been shown to help improve mood.


  • Take internally to support cleansing and detox and to assist with seasonal respiratory discomfort.
  • Add Lemon oil 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 finishes.
  • Use a cloth soaked in Lemon oil to preserve and protect your leather furniture and other leather surfaces or garments.
  • Lemon oil is a great remedy for the early stages of tarnish on silver and other metals.
