The bright summer sun in Texas makes me think of a squeeze of lemon in iced tea. So refreshing!
Today I'm talking about Lemon Essential oil, continuing our series of Young Living Essential Oil tips & tricks using the essential oils in the Young Living Premium Starter Kit. Don't have a kit? I'd love to help you get started! Click here to sign up or contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Lemon essential oil, cold-pressed from lemon rinds, has a strong, purifying, citrus scent that is uplifting and energizing. It contains 68 percent d-limonene, a powerful antioxidant. It takes 75 lemons to produce one 15 ml bottle of Lemon essential oil.
Here are this week's tips.
- Grease or dirt stains? Try a drop of Lemon prior to laundering.
- Use 1-2 drops to remove gum, oil, grease spots, glue or adhesive, and crayon from most surfaces.
- Place a drop of oil on skin or blemishes at night to help balance oil glands and minimize oil production. Don't expose skin to sun for at least four hours after applying as undiluted citrus essential oils cause exposed skin to be more photosensitive.
- Diffuse to help replenish your mind, body, and spirit.
- Place a few drops on a cotton ball and put in the refrigerator or trash can to help eliminate odors.
- Add a drop or two to a glass (not plastic!) of ice water with a splash of stevia for a refreshing summer drink that helps to cleanse the liver and support the kidneys.
- One tsp. lemon extract = 16 drops Lemon essential oil
- One Tbsp lemon zest = 8 drops Lemon essential oil
