Lemon Essential Oil
🍋Lemon essential oil could be one of THE most versatile oils, and is the number one oil I recommend for people just starting out with essential oils.
Lemon has benefits for both your body and your mind, not to mention your house, and your family!
It is mood balancing, sharpens you up, improves focus and relieves stress. Drop one or two drops of lemon in your hand, rub your hands together and take a few deep breaths, you will immediately feel the effects! Give it a try!
Leave it on your kitchen bench and you will find you will think of all sorts of uses for it! I like to add a drop onto my bench after tidying up after cooking tea, then I wipe the whole bench with it on my cloth, it gets rid of cooking smells and gives you a burst of lemon happiness as you clean.Add to a bit of baking soda in the bottom of pots where there are stubborn bits of food - leave for a few minutes or overnight it very stubborn then you'll find it easier to clean off. A a few drops to your dishwater or to your rinse aid compartment in your dishwasher.
🍋 1 drop in a luke warm glass of water to start your day
🍋1 drop mixed with honey and warm water for a soothing drink
🍋1 drop added to a cup of chamomile tea - or tea of your choice
🍋1-3 drops mixed with a carrier oil in a small spray bottle for scrapes and boo boos
🍋1-2 drops onto your dry brush for body brushing
Use on your skin at night time, so there is no bother about sun sensitivity.
I could go on 😂
