Lemon Essential Oil Uses

 

#1 Help Aid Tummy Troubles

If you’re dealing with bloat and other tummy problems, lemon is a natural carminative that helps aid almost any problem. Add a few drops to a glass of water and drink for relief.

#2 Drink Lemon In The Morning

Adding a few drops of lemon to a glass of water every morning helps to cleanse your kidneys, liver, and digestive system.

#3 Natural Insect Repellent

Bugs definitely don’t like lemon! Combine with Peppermint and Eucalyptus oil to repel nasty pests.

#4 Natural Disinfectant

Add 15-30 drops of oil (amount will depend on the size of the container) to a spray bottle full of a 60/40 water vinegar solution. Use this to clean countertops, dishes, and clothing.

#5 Care For Your Hair

Lemon oil is used to eliminate dandruff, and get strong and shiny hair. Be warned that using lemon in your hair care regime may cause natural highlighting to occur.

#6 Soften Calluses

I have the most unsightly callus on my foot from a half marathon I ran. Apply lemon directly to the area a few times daily, and watch the calluses soften.

#7 Treat Yourself

Treat yourself to a relaxing night…In the bathroom! Check out this recipe from Essential Oils Are My BFF. It’s the best lemon brown sugar scrub you’ll ever try!

#8 Clean The Garbage Disposal

I don’t know about you, but my garbage disposal can get to be the stinkiest! Refresh your disposal with Epsom Salt, Purification Oil (also from Young Living), and Lemon Oil. Recipe here! 

#9 Remove Sticky Residue

Dealing with stuck on crayon or labels? Lemon oil will remove all of those, and crayon off the wall!

#10 Diffuse It

Mix with lavender (this is one of my favorite diffuser combos) to energize, uplift, and help to lessen the effects of depression.

Frankincense Essential Oil -Wellness Wednesday

#1 Relax With A Bath Soak

Put a few drops of Frankincense oil into a hot bath to help combat feelings of stress, anxiety, and depression. Frankincense is also proven to help reduce the appearance of stress marks and cellulite. Add a cup of epsom salt for more skin purifying capabilities.

#2 Clean Your Whole Home

Add a few drops of frankincense to a bottle of diluted vinegar for a quick and easy household cleaner. Frankincense is a natural antiseptic and will disinfect and clean any area of your home. Put a few drops in a diffuser to help clean any air odors throughout your home.

#3 It’s Great for Your Teeth!

Frankincense oil makes a great addition to any oral hygiene product. It helps prevent tooth decay, gum disease, and any cavities from forming. If interested, you can make a really awesome tooth paste by mixing a few drops of frankincense with baking soda. It whitens your teeth fantastically!

#4 FIGHT WRINKLES

You had me at hello. Add a few drops of frankincense to your face lotion. It protects the skin and helps fight against the formation of wrinkles, acne, and large pores. Believe it or not, it’s even used to heal saggy skin!

 

#5 Helps With Cramps

I can attest to this one! A few drops of Frankincense oil on your lower abdomen can really help with cramps caused by PMS. But that’s not all! It helps relieve symptoms of constipation and other gastrointestinal distress!

#6 Treat Scars

Remember when I said that Frankincense helped protect and heal skin? It absolutely does! Combine a few drops of oil with coconut oil and rub directly on scars, stretch marks, or any other skin wounds to help promote faster healing.

#7 Get Rid of Coughs

Without an immunization, of course! If you are having trouble “getting over” a cough caused by the flu, Frankincense can help you find relief! Drop oil into your hands and inhale directly for fast relief.

#8 Helps Reduce Stress, Anxiety, and Negative Emotions

As I said previously, it was these benefits specifically that motivated me to seek out this oil. Diffuse nightly for help overcoming stress and anxiety. I’ve also carried a small bottle in my purse if I need any relief throughout the day!
