Lemon Oil Benefits
Lemon essential oil has many uses. One of them can be a teeth whitener. Mix lemon oil with baking soda and coconut oil. Brush on to teeth for 2-3 minutes. Rinse out your mouth.
You Can Lose Weight With It
Lemon oil promotes fat loss. Using 2 drops of oil in your glass of 8oz water 3x daily will help boost your metabolism. Also, this may motivate you to drink more water which is another way that helps burn fat and lose water weight. It is also a natural body cleanser. Do not put more than 2 drops in, as this can be dangerous because essential oils should always be diluted and consumed in small quantities. *Consult your doctor before consuming essential oils.*
It Can Improve Your Mood
Putting lemon oil into a diffuser and revitalizing the air can improve your mood and fight depression. You can also add a few drops into a warm bath. It smells amazing and works for most people, unless, of course, you do not like lemon scent.
If you would rather not use harsh chemicals on your home, lemon oil is a good substitute. Rather than bleach or alcohol, mix 40 drops of lemon oil and 20 drops tea tree oil with white vinegar in a 16oz bottle. Fill the rest of the bottle with pure water. This is a cleaning favorite.
Many people use lemon oil to get strong, shiny, healthy hair. It eliminates dandruff by restoring a normal pH balance on your scalp. Mix into your favorite hair mask to get fabulous hair!
