Lemon Essential Oil Uses & Benefits

Lemon oil is an essential oil that I use every single day. Lemon oil is a powerful detoxification oil that I add to my water throughout the day. I start my day by adding 1-2 drops of lemon oil along with lemon juice to 16oz of water and drink it. The benefits of this habit aids to naturally cleanse the body and support digeestive function.

I describe all of my favorite ways to use Lemon Essential Oil Oil in one of my essential oil spotlight videos.  It is not currently available on Youtube, but please contact me
if you would like to see it.  In the meantime, below is the video’s transcript, so you can learn more about lemon oil!

Hi, this is Dr. Mariza and I’m going to be talking about one of my favorite essential oils today. We’re going to be featuring lemon oil. Now, I’ve been using this oil almost every single day for the last three and a half years. And the reason why we use it is there are so many uses to this oil. I actually consider this one of my top three favorites when it comes to being a Swiss army knife. So one of the first ways we use it, because we are very concerned with helping keep the body healthy and just rejuvenate it, is we use lemon oil as a wonderful cleansing agent for the body.

A really easy way to use lemon oil is just adding it to your smoothies or adding it to your water every single day. Now I have one of my water infusions right here. And in here I have a little bit of lemon juice, strawberries, and I’m actually going to add a couple of drops of lemon oil. And not only does it purify the body, but it also helps to just make water taste a little bit better. So I’m just going to try it out. Again this is just a habit that we love, we use every single day.

Another way that we use lemon oil everyday is that we have made over all of our cleaning products. I find that having conventional cleansers in the house can lead to higher levels of toxicity in the body, and we just want to reduce our toxic load as much as possible. So instead of using toxic cleaners, we now use lemon oil, baking soda, and lots and lots of vinegar. Not only do we try to clean all of our windows, cabinets, everything with lemon oil and other types of natural cleaners, but we actually add lemon oil to our laundry, as well. Sometimes laundry doesn’t always smell super great, so adding some lemon oil to that is great.

Now other ways that I actually recommend using lemon oil are these. Lemon oil, among other citrus oils, are wonderful mood boosters. So if you’re looking for a little bit of an energy boost or a mood boost, all you have to do is just grab an oil just like this, I usually put it right in my palms, it’s a couple…just know that lemon oil is a little bit generous, so one to two drops is all you need. So I rub my hands together, and just breathe it in like that and immediately I just feel this cleansing burst of energy. It just washes away any type of yuckiness I might be experiencing, maybe some stressful feelings that may be going on in my life.

Another way to really get wonderful lemon oil and just the smell of that mood-boosting properties into your household is by diffusing them. We have diffusers all over our house. We’re always diffusing citrus oils during the day, and then I love to diffuse calming oils at night, specifically lemon oil or bergamot or roman chamomile, just to calm down the environment of the house.

Last but not least, this is probably one of my favorite ways to share, because my husband loves using lemon oil as a de-greaser, a way to polish spoons, a way to treat wood. So lemon oil actually has a lot of wonderful cleansing and de-greasing properties, as well. So you can play and see what lemon oil can do for you. It’s just a really great way to use it and explore it, for creating really simple ways to heal in your household. So those are just some of the ways that I use lemon oil on a day-to-day basis. I hope that you find it to be an extremely beneficial oil, and help you to create natural solutions for you and your family today.
