Lemon Essential Oil


Lemon essential oil (Citrus limonum) has a great reputation within Aromatherapy as it offers an amazingly fresh scent, along with a number of benefits that are both therapeutic and antiseptic. This allows for both healing and restoring qualities.

Within massage, lemon is used for arthritis, varicose veins, cellulite and poor circulation. Treating acne, boils and insect bites topically are also other common applications of Lemon Essential Oil (only use a drop!).

Within the first sign of a cold or a sore throat, you may want to add a drop or two to some water (warm) and gargle.

Within aromatherapy, a focusing effect on the mind may be one of the greatest benefits of this scent. Interestingly, typing errors were decreased by 54% within one office study when this oil was diffused throughout the office.

Emotionally, Lemon Essential Oil is said to reduce guilty, regret and jealousy.

When diffused, people have reported lessening of the symptoms of bronchitis and asthma.

Lemon does blend quite easily with most other essential oils and can take the sweet edge off of other oils such as ylang ylang, geranium, rose and sandalwood. This also blends well with Roman chamomile, cypress, fennel, juniper berry, lavender, neroli and other citrus oils.
