How to Essential: Lemon

Updated: Mar 8, 2018


Lemon is the best selling essential oil and one of my favorites to use.  It has such a refreshing citrus smell and, unlike most oils, is true to the taste of lemons.  I love to drip it into my water (always in a glass bottle) and drink it throughout the day.  I have found that as I add the lemon, not only do I get the cleansing benefits of the oil, I drink a lot more water because it tastes great!


Lemon is a powerful cleansing agent that purifies the air and surfaces, and can be used as a non-toxic cleaner throughout the home. When added to water, Lemon provides a refreshing and healthy boost throughout the day. Lemon is frequently added to food to enhance the flavor of desserts and main dishes. Taken internally, Lemon provides cleansing and digestive benefits and supports healthy respiratory function.* When diffused, Lemon is very uplifting and energizing and has been shown to help improve mood.
