Gotta' LOVE LEMON

One of my favorite essential oils is Lemon. It's like sunshine in a bottle.


Lemon, (botanical name Citrus Limonum (or Limon), is thought to be native to India & Southeast China.  The fruit reached Europe by way of  Persia and the Middle East sometime around the twelfth century (Although some say Lemons were found in the ruins of Pompeii).

In 1493, Columbus brought lemon with him to the West Indies, which introduced them to the new world. The main growers of lemons today are Italy, the USA, Spain & Argentina. The scent of Lemon essential oil is almost indescribable. To say that it is fresh and crisp doesn't do it justice.

It is also very versatile: Lemon is useful to diffuse during cold season due to it's antiseptic properties; so it's good to use when cleaning your house or doing your laundry.

Lemon is an uplifting, yet calming essential oil  that is said to "open your heart and alleviate the fear of emotional involvement"; it helps with:

  • stress,

  • anxiety,

  • insomnia.

  •  focus

  • may be helpful with Seasonal Affective Disorder.

Contraindications:

  • Cold pressed”Lemon” Essential Oil is photosensitive so care should be taken not to expose the skin to sun or UV rays for 12 -24 hours after use.

  • ”May cause irritation to sensitive skin. Always dilute before topical use.

  • *** Don’t add  Lemon Essential oil to your drinking water.
