Lemon essential oil was one of the first oils that I ever used. At first I just used it for scent. I’d drop it down the sinks when they started getting smelly, or I would mix it with water and vinegar to clean our wood floors. But as I’ve learned more about Lemon, I’ve discovered there are so many other wonderful uses!
Making Lemon Essential Oil
Lemon is made from the Citrus limon rind. The rind is cold pressed by Young Living and is mostly sourced from Argentina and South Africa. It takes approximately 75 lemons to make one 15mL bottle of Lemon Essential Oil. The resulting lemon oil smells exactly like a fresh lemon – it is invigorating and fresh.
Using Lemon Essential Oil
As I mentioned above, lemon can be used in many different situations. To this day, I still use it for cleaning purposes. I still drop it into my sinks when they start smelling, and I still will mix lemon in with my Thieves Cleaning Solution if I want an extra lemon smell in my cleaning products.
I also really enjoy the lemon scent mixed with my more summer-y diffuser blends. It is a fantastic oil for focus and motivation, so is another great tool to diffuse for homeschooling or other concentrated tasks. It is also a key ingredient in my DIY immune support roller.
Mix one drop of Lemon Vitality essential oil in your water, iced tea, or NingXia Red for a refreshing lemon taste that is high in antioxidants and a great immune support.
Products Containing Lemon Essential Oil
There are many different Young Living blends that contain Lemon Essential Oil. Among my favorites are the Young Living blends Thieves, Joy, Raven, and Citrus Fresh. Your essential oil Premium Starter Kit contains a 5mL bottle of Lemon Vitality, but you can also purchase 5mL Lemon Vitality and 15mL Lemon essential oil from your Young Living membership or retail account.
