Start your day with the mood-boosting, highly energizing Lemon Essential Oil!
Lemon essential oil is a completely natural ingredient that also serves as a home health remedy. It’s extracted from the peel of fresh lemons through steam extraction, or less often, through a “cold-pressing” process that pricks and rotates the peel as oil is released.
Lemon essential oil can be diluted and applied topically to your skin, as well as diffused into the air and inhaled. Some people swear by this oil as an ingredient that fights exhaustion, helps with depression, clears your skin, kills harmful viruses and bacteria, and reduces inflammation.
Due to its cleansing antibacterial and anti-fungal properties, lemon essential oil is perfect for toning and clarifying your skin. It is ideal for vaporization and also makes a great natural disinfectant for your home. Known to help bolster against anxiety, nausea and indigestion, Lemon Essential Oil is packed with Vitamin C and antioxidants to help boost the immune system.
