Hello my friends,
I'm sharing one of my fav essential oil with you this month . . .
Cold-pressed from the rinds of lemons.
1 drop is equivalent to the juice of 2 lemons.
Doesn’t erode teeth enamel like lemon’s do.
How and Why to Use?
Clean Home | Being antiseptic and antifungal – simply add a few drops to water to disinfect your kitchen and bathroom (do not use on granite or stone)
Veggies | Add 1-2 drops to a bowl of water to wash away pesticides and toxins from fruit and veggies (if not buying organic)
Washing | Apply a drop or 2 to harsh laundry stains, or add a few drops in your wash to help brighten whites
Dishwasher | Add to dishwasher to help remove hard water spots
Cooking | Delicious addition to marinades, salad dressings and sweet treats (cheaper than buying the fruit!)
Skin | Can help reduce the appearance of blemishes - Add 1 drop to your evening moisturiser
Gut Health | Helps balance and detoxify the liver – promoting regular bowel moments – Add a drop to your water bottle or to a cup of warm water in the morning
Heartburn | Alkalises the body and relieves acid reflux - Add a drop to your water bottle or to a cup of warm water in the morning
Whatever brand of oil you do use - just make sure it is 100% pure, cold-pressed and therapeutic grade.
Care must always be taken before using any essential oils:
- Pregnant women should always consult their health professional before using essential oils
- Like most citrus essential oils, lemon oil is phototoxic and you should not expose your skin to direct sunlight
- Always dilute it with a suitable carrier oil before applying to the skin
- Even after dilution, do a patch test on a discrete area of skin to ensure that you do not have a reaction
