Lemon Essential Oil - Benefits & Uses

Essential oils are a holistic approach to living a more mindful life. Whether you use them for aromatherapy, healing, or even cleaning, each individual oil works naturally to aid the process. For example, a lemon essential oil is best used as a natural cleaner!

What is Lemon Essential Oil?

This oil is crafted by using steam extraction from fresh lemon peels. In some circumstances, 'cold-pressing' is used that pricks and rotates the peel until the oil is released. The most common method and best to collect the oils is through steam. This creates essential lemon oil that is used in home health.

De-stress & Ease Anxiety

Lemon essential oil is known to be a powerful calming and mood-improving agent. The citrus aromatherapy introduces a relaxing smell to your home, whether you use it for cleaning or another home remedy. One study suggests that lemon essential oil was more effective at relieving stress than other essential oils such as lavender and rose.

Relieve Nausea & Remedy Colds

Another study also shows that it helps to relieve nausea from pregnant women experiencing morning sickness. With that notion, it would also help anyone sick experiencing nausea. An easy way to combat the sick feeling is using aromatherapy throughout your house.

Most people are familiar with halls and other cough drops that help relieve your symptoms. Many of these have citrus, primarily lemon in the ingredients to help relieve your sickness. This can also be used with the essential oil by setting up a diffuser in your home as well.

Cleaning Your Home

Lemon essential oil can be mixed with water and some other natural ingredients to clean your home! You can make counter sprays, disinfectants, odor eliminators, and even clean your floors. Generally, lemon essential oil can be mixed with water and vinegar to create a cleaner to use in your house. This allows you to clean everything naturally, rather than using toxic chemicals from other cleaners in your home.
