I absolutely love citrus oils and lemon is one of my favourites!
Historically, lemon was used to treat stomach upsets, assist the body to fight more serious illnesses like malaria and typhoid, and also to treat scurvy.
It is extracted by cold pressing the rind, and is widely used today for its effective cleansing properties.
- Diffuse to cleanse the air and uplift the mood.
- Add to a glass spray bottle of water and vinegar for an effective surface cleaner. (See my recipe here)
- Diffusing lemon oil or including it in your cleaning products will also help with odour removal.
- Can be inhaled direct from the bottle to reduce feelings of nausea as well as calm the effects of seasonal allergies.

A word of caution
As with all citrus oils, avoid sunlight or UV rays for up to 12 hours after applying directly to the skin. Keep out of reach of children. If you are pregnant, nursing, or under a doctor’s care, consult your physician. Avoid contact with eyes, inner ears and sensitive areas.
Always check for further contraindications and warnings.
