Lemon is one of doTERRA’s best selling essential oils, probably due to its multiple benefits and uses. As the Lemon essential oil is a powerful cleansing agent, it purifies air and surfaces, and can be used as a non-toxic cleaner throughout the home. When taken internally, Lemon provides cleansing and digestive benefits, helps support healthy respiratory function. This essential oil is also uplifting and energising, and helps improve mood. I use Lemon a lot in Winter to help keep the immune system strong. Here’s a few ways you can do this too over the cooler months:
- Add a drop of Lemon essential oil to your green smoothie (with avocado, or another healthy fat) each morning to help cleanse and clear out the blood, and rid the body of toxic buildup.
- Take 1-2 drops of Lemon essential oils internally with honey to assist with seasonal respiratory discomfort.
- Add a few drops of Lemon essential oil to a spray bottle filled with water to clean tables, countertops, and other surfaces around the home.
- For babies and small children add 1 drop of Lemon, 1 drop of Cypress and 1 drop of Cedarwood, topped with fractionated coconut oil in a 10ml roller bottle. This is a very gentle immune-boosting blend for babies; roll down their spine and feet to support their immune system. For an adult use 5 drops of each.
