I have been using essential oils for many years now and absolutely love them! There are so many uses and I honestly use several of them every single day! I wanted to put together some posts about how I use my oils so I could share the love. I am doing a series that goes over the eleven Everyday Essential Oils that come included with the Premium Starter Kit. Definitely the BEST way to get started with essential oils in your home or as a business! The kit includes 12 oils, a home diffuser, and tons of samples and information.

In this post I want to talk about Lemon Essential Oil and how I use it personally in my home.
This stuff is potent! To get 1 kilo of oil, Young Living cold presses 3,000 lemons from the rind! Lemon essential oil (as well as the other citrus oils) naturally contain high amounts of d-Limonene.
Lemon oil has been widely used in skin care throughout history. It is also known for helping improve mental accuracy and concentration. Lemon essential oil just like all the other citruses are cold-pressed from the rind meaning the oil doesn’t contain the acid that the pulp does. Drinking water with lemon EO is much easier on your teeth than lemon juice.
Uses for Lemon Essential Oil:
- Contains 68% d-limonene, a powerful antioxidant
- Supports healthy skin
- Aids normal digestion
- Supports the nervous system
- Delicious in water to support the body’s normal detoxification processes
- Lemon enhances the flavor of foods and water. I use it in my Lemon Cake Cookie recipe
- It is also a key ingredient in Thieves®, NingXia Red®, and Inner Defense™
*Note: to mix the oil with a carrier oil mix 2 parts carrier oil with 1 part essential oil. We commonly use this oil as a carrier oil.
