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 using 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 lemon essential oil as an ingredient that fights exhaustion, helps with depression, clears your skin, kills harmful viruses and bacteria, and reduces inflammation.
Diffusion: Use three to four drops in the diffuser of your choice.
Topical use: Dilute 1 drop essential oil to 10 drops carrier oil.
Storage: Keep in a cool dry place, with no direct sunlight.
Possible skin sensitivity. Keep out of reach of children. If you are pregnant, nursing, or under a doctor's care, consult your physician.
