Add Zest to Your Life with Essential Oil of Lemon

Someday I’ll wish upon a star
And wake up where the clouds are far behind me
Where troubles melt like lemon drops
Away above the chimney top
That’s where you’ll find me.
~ Eva Cassidy
Lemon oil’s fresh, revitalizing aroma can help you feel like you are lifted up, with your troubles far behind you.
Lemon oil is invigorating to the senses, refreshes your skin and hair, uplifts mood, cleanses the air and your surroundings, enhances the flavor of water and food, and supports healthy circulatory and immune systems.

Lemon essentials

Lemon’s many applications make it one of the most useful essential oils to have on hand. The fresh, zesty aroma is refreshing, and its naturally occurring d-limonene plays an important role in NingXia Red®, Young Living’s superfruit supplement.

Fun facts

Lemon oil is cold-pressed from the peel of the lemon (because the job of the lemon peel is to soak up the sun, it is advised not to put lemon on topically and then go in the sun, as this may result in darkened spots on your skin).
It takes about 75 lemons to make one 15-ml. bottle of lemon essential oil.
