Lemon Essential Oil: The oil of focus


Lemon Essential Oil

The video below is by the author of the amazing book “Emotions and Essential Oils – A Modern Resource for Healing”.  He explains the emotional benefits of lemon essential oil and is definitely worth watching.  The book can be purchased here.

What Can Lemon Essential Oil be used for?


Lemon has multiple benefits and uses. Lemon is a powerful cleansing agent that purifies the air and surfaces, and can be used as a non-toxic cleaner throughout the home. When added to water, Lemon provides a refreshing and healthy boost throughout the day. Lemon is frequently added to food to enhance the flavour of desserts and main dishes. Taken internally, Lemon provides cleansing and digestive benefits and supports healthy respiratory function.* When diffused, Lemon is very uplifting and energizing and has been shown to help improve mood.


  • Take internally to assist with seasonal respiratory discomfort.*
  • Add Lemon oil to a spray bottle of water to clean tables, countertops, and other surfaces. Lemon oil also makes a great furniture polish; simply add a few drops to olive oil to clean, protect, and shine wood finishes.
  • Use a cloth soaked in Lemon oil to preserve and protect your leather furniture and other leather surfaces or garments.
  • Lemon oil is a great remedy for the early stages of tarnish on silver and other metals.
  • Diffuse to create an uplifting environment.

Where is Lemon oil sourced from?

This is a great video about the families that grow the Lemon for our essential oil. It makes me smile and laugh every time I watch it! I guess being around so much citrus fruit (which is a mood uplifter) you are going to be naturally happy and optimistic!
