When life hands you Lemons, use the oil to lift you up!

Updated on May 15, 2016

Did you know?

While the lemon tree is a native of India, the fresh strong aroma has made the Lemon popular throughout the world. From commercial uses to personal use, the Lemon is believed to have both medicinal and spiritual uses.

The tall trees have dark green oval leaves and it is adorned with white or pink flowers. The fruit turns from green to yellow when ripe and the oil is then extracted from the fresh fruit peel by either cold expression or distilled steam.

Packed with vitamins and the bright sunny appearance of the lemon make it a favorite addition to both food and drink.

Don't Love the Lemon?

Not everyone enjoys the sour taste of Lemons but that does not mean that you cannot enjoy many of the benefits this versatile gem has to offer. Many believe that the aroma of Lemon provides brain clarity, freshens the air and increases mood and concentration.

Try adding a few drops of Lemon essential oil to a diffuser in your office for concentration or add some in a diffuser at home to get the creative juices flowing. Another wonderful way to keep your home feeling clean and energized is to use Lemon oil to clean. Add 30 drops of Lemon essential oil to 1 cup of water and 1 cup of white vinegar for a quick kitchen clean up. Not only does the Lemon oil disinfect but the aroma will enhance clarity.

Love the Lemon!

Besides laughing at the funny faces the sour Lemon causes, there are many people who love the taste of Lemon. You can benefit from the lemon without using it as an essential oil.
