CAUTIONS

It is highly recommended that glass bottles be used for all the recipes in this article, as citrus oils break down plastic bottles.

USING LEMON OIL IN A DIFFUSER OR ROOM SPRAY (ELIMINATE GERMS AND REFRESH)

Used in aromatherapy, Lemon Essential Oil can reduce fever and flu while relieving throat infections and coughing. By clearing the nasal passages, it promotes easier breathing for those with respiratory issues or infections. This rejuvenating, clean-smelling essential oil is commonly used to enhance concentration and energy.

When diffused indoors, Lemon Essential Oil eliminates toxins in the air and can be used as a non-toxic cleaner and air freshener throughout the home for a mood-elevating, cooling, and revitalizing effect. It also has a calming effect that can subdue negative moods such as anxiety.
