doTERRA Lemon Essential Oil Reviewed

No Comment Yet

Everyone knows that lemons are great for your health, they’ve been used for hundreds of years to boost immune systems and cleanse the body.

Lemon essential oil is made by cold-pressing the lemon peel – the most nutrient-rich part of the lemon. I have found that this amazing, highly antioxidant oil is one the best and most affordable essential oils I make sure I keep in my home. You can buy it here.

Be very careful about ingesting essential oils. doTERRA oils are 100% certified pure therapeutic grade oils. I would not want to ingest oils that were not pure. You may decide that you’d prefer to only use them topically, or diffuse them. This is something you need to decide based on your own research and understanding.

How I Use Lemon Essential Oil

doTERRA lemon essential oil

1 – As a General Immune Booster

I drop one drop of lemon essential oil in a large lukewarm glass of water daily. I find this absolutely amazing for boosting my health and general wellness. Combined with the rest of my healthy living, this has made a huge difference to whether or not I get the regular seasonal threats going around my children’s school and preschool. I’m not saying I’m immune, but if there’s one oil I’d recommend everyone have in their house, its this.

For children, I dilute it even further. Remember that essential oils are really potent, in fact around 50 lemons are used to make one single 15 ml bottle of lemon essential oil!

2 – To Relieve Allergies and Coughs

Persistent coughs can be much more than a nuisance. Combined with the doTERRA Easy Air essential oil, lemon oil is excellent for helping to clear your coughs. It is antibacterial, antioxidant and anti-inflammatory.

For those who suffer from allergies, a mix of lemon with Peppermint and Lavender is really effective at reducing symptoms of hayfever and seasonal allergies. I create a roller mix with fractionated coconut oil and apply to neck and wrists or diffuse.

3 – To Energise and Improve My Mood

If I start feeling a bit tired or low, the first thing I think is “have I had my lemon oil today?”. Very often I’ve missed it, and if so I have my drop in my water. It always helps to wake me up and feel better. I also diffuse it, it smells lovely and fresh.

4 – To Ease Nausea

Inhaling lemon can help reduce feelings of nausea. You can inhale essential oils directly from the bottle if you don’t have a diffuser, or if you have a diffuser this is a really effective way of getting the smell around the house. It’s not often I have hangovers these days, but when I last did, having my glass of lemon water definitely helped.

5 – As a Disinfectant & Cleaner

Bet you never thought of buying essential oils to clean your home did you! Lemon essential oil is amazing as a cleaner, and its all natural and safe. I use a mixture of lemon essential oil with white vinegar and water in a spray bottle for cleaning up bad smells, “accidents” from my children and in the bathroom and kitchen.

Other Ways to Use Lemon Essential Oil

There are lots of other ways to use lemon oil that I haven’t tried yet. Some of the things on my list of things to try include:

  • In my laundry to keep my clothes fresh and clean
  • As a wood and silver polish
  • To remove sticky residue from gum or stickers
  • To clean hands
  • As a teeth whitener
  • To wash my face
