Description: With a fresh and zesty citrus scent, Lemon has a bright and sunny disposition, and is sometimes nicknamed the "sunshine" oil. Lively and with a sparkling spirit, it is one of the most joyful, popular, and versatile essential oils in the world. It is a top note with a strong and bright lemony aroma.
Benefits & Uses:
- aptly called "sunshine in a bottle", it works wonders to uplift spirits and is often utilized to promote a positive mood
- known to support a healthy immune system, it is often the top choice when germ-fighting formulas are in demand
- Lemon can be diffused to cleanse the air, or added into DIY natural formulas for cleaning surfaces like tables and countertops, or mopping floors
- with a wonderfully refreshing aroma, Lemon is energizing and invigorating to the senses, making it a perfect addition to an aromatherapy inhaler when a boost of positive energy is needed
Featured In: A few of our best-selling essential oil blends contain Lemon, including the germ-fighting blend Purify #1 (a copycat blend that encompasses the same oils that are featured in Young Living's "Thieves" formula). It is also one of the key oils in our respiratory supportive blend called Deep Breath, and our popular uplifting blend called Sun Chariot. We also add it to our Nike's Shield Natural Deodorant for its antibacterial properties along with its ability to curb odor and sweat. It is also featured in this Body Butter and matching Sugar Scrub!
