When you are using Lemon essential oil you know you are in familiar hands. This oil is one of the most easily recognized oils and for good reason. Lemon has a fresh, zesty citrus scent that is refreshing, energizing, and uplifting; this scent is invigorating to the senses and wonderful to smell. Hailing from Italy, Lemon Essential Oil has been used for centuries.
Unlike other oils that are steam distilled, Lemon Essential Oil is extracted through the fruit peel using a cold pressed extraction method and is 100% pure with no fillers or additives. This strong, but refreshing scented aroma is known to support a healthy immune system, uplift and revitalize, and add a wonderful lemon scent to spray cleaners.
Diffuse equal amounts of Lemon and Peppermint in the morning or whenever you need an extra boost. To use for cleaning, add a few drops to your favorite cleaner to help refresh and sanitize. It is especially good added to some baking soda to make your bathroom or kitchen appliances sparkle!
