Lemon-Aid: 5 Benefits of Lemon Essential Oil

  • DIGESTIVE AID

    If you’re experiencing issues with digestion, lemon essential oil just may be the solution you’ve been seeking. Each morning, stir a few drops of oil into a cup of hot filtered water. This beverage is more than just refreshing: it’ll help your organs filter out toxins and improve liver and gallbladder function, which will have a positive effect on your digestive process.

  • CLEANING SOLUTION

    As an ingredient in DIY cleaning solutions, lemon essential oil works wonders. Blend it with white vinegar and use the fresh-smelling mixture to clean windows and countertops. It’s not as harsh as the chemical agents found in store-bought cleaning solutions, and it’s safe to use around animals and kids. Move over, ammonia!

  • AROMATHERAPY

    Lemon essential oil is often used in aromatherapy treatments. The fresh scent of lemon has been known to help alleviate mental health issues like anxiety and stress, promote weight loss, and improve moods.

  • LAUNDRY FRESHENER

    As an organic alternative to scented detergents if you prefer to use unscented, try adding a few drops of lemon essential oil to the wash cycle next time you do your laundry. You’ll have fresher, cleaner-smelling sheets and clothes in no time!

  • COLD REMEDY

    Not just a digestive aid, lemon is a natural disinfectant. Add lemon essential oil and honey to hot tea for a commonly effective household cold remedy. It helps lessen sore throat and cough symptoms.
