Lemon Cold Pressed Essential Oil
Zesty, fresh, and inspiring, lemon essential oil’s aroma smells just like the fresh fruit! The dominant component in lemon oil, limonene, has been well researched. It makes lemon a lively oil that brings a sparkling, refreshing spirit everywhere it goes—use it to clean your home, as a single drop sends germs running the other direction! Trust lemon to support the breath, muscles, and joints, too.
Lemon essential oil is ideal for inhalation, topical blends, and cleaning. Use a low drop count to prevent phototoxic skin reactions. Use it for the breath, head, chest, immune support, muscles, joints, stress relief, energy, reducing germs, and for a cheery outlook.
Lemon essential oil is a famous natural cleaner! Add it to a natural abrasive scrub for your tub and tile. Dilute lemon essential oil in a carrier oil and spend time massaging sore, cramped muscles. Make a lemon essential oil inhaler to fill the day with a positive, can-do attitude!
