Nature/Essence – Cooling & Clarifying
FOR THE SKIN
Lemon oil has astringent, antiseptic and toning effects for oily, congested or acne-prone skin. It is also used for boils, fungal conditions, cold sores and warts, and in formulations for greasy hair and deodorants. (Avoid sun exposure after applying to skin)
FOR THE BODY
Lemon oil provides a lovely fresh scent and a detoxifying, toning action in body oils or lotions applied to congested, stagnant areas including cellulite, fluid retention, varicose or spider veins, as well as rheumatic joint conditions. Studies show Lemon oil also has antimicrobial and immune support properties, great to diffuse or as an inhalation for coughs and colds.
FOR THE MIND
Lemon helps clarify the mind, aiding concentration and steadying nervousness or agitation. One study showed diffusing Lemon oil reduced typing errors by 54%! It uplifts and provides a sense of space and when feeling overwhelmed or mentally fatigued and unable to make decisions.
FOR THE HOME
A lovely oil to diffuse during cold and flu season to purify and refresh the air, and also a great choice in household cleaning blends and dishwash liquid.

this is such a useful essential oil to have for using in home made cleaning products, or adding to the diffuser, and the price is great. Another great product from Pure Nature
This oil smells Devine and is great in cleaning!
I like the firm scent it blended well with water as well as carrier oils
But the scent is really really strong. Be aware a little goes a long way!
