Lemon Essential Oil is literally essential in my house as I am sure it is in your house too (or soon to be!).
Lemon comes in the Young Living Premium Starter Kit and was one of the first oils I had to re-order. Now, I always have a back up on hand.
ps I am totally digging the color and how well lemon matches my blog theme 😉
Lemon essential oil comes from the rind of the lemon. You know how lemon zest can really add a punch to a meal? Imagine adding a DROP of lemon to your meal.
It takes about 75 lemons to make a 15mL bottle of essential oil. And the retail value for a Young Living 5mL bottles is $8.22.
So, what the heck does it do?
Like, a million things. But we are both on a tight schedule so I’ll talk about the most important!
Lemon essential oil is a natural disinfectant and has found its way into all of my cleaning products and skin care products. It may help reduce wrinkles and combat acne.
It fights germs and eliminates odors. Left your clothes in the washer too long? Add a drop of lemon!
The scent of lemon not only reminds you of freshness and cleanliness, it is enhancing and warming. Therefore, it lifts spirits and induces relaxation. Lemon promotes clarity and may help support those suffering from depression.
And the taste? YUM. I have developed a habit where I add a drop of lemon to every glass of water I drink. It helps with my digestive system and reduces cravings. If it fights germs on the outside, it is certainly doing the same on the inside of my body. Lemon helps maintain a healthy gut.

Lemon oil is also exactly what you need for getting rid of stickers on glass bottles. It is better than whatever goo-be-gone you’ve been using. To be honest, I kind of get excited when to use this trick.
Lemon can also be a nail polish remover! Try it!
Add a drop of Lemon to your next pitcher of sweet tea or add them to your ice cubes. I have also heard a rumor that it magnifies lemon martinis 😉
