Lemon Essential Oil

Originally native to Asia, the lemon tree wasn’t common in Europe until the 16th century. It is part of the evergreen family and reaches a height of about 20 feet. Lemon essential oil is known for its cleansing properties, and it is widely used in skin care and home cleaning solutions for these benefits. Its fresh, zesty aroma also makes it an important top note in perfumes, as well as an effective odor neutralizer when diffused.

Lemon Vitality™ essential oil has a fresh, citrusy flavor and provides immune support and antioxidant properties when taken internally.*

Lemon and Lemon Vitality are the same essential oil.

Diffuser Recipes

Notes:

These are approximate drops.  Adjust these recipes to your needs.  If the recipe is too strong for you, add fewer drops.  Do you need more?  Just add more, but no more than 8-12 drops for all of our diffusers with the exception of the Aria diffuser which requires 15-25 drops.

Tip:  When you first begin diffusing, start with less and then build to more if desired.

Lemon Dusting Spray

You know that oil and water don’t mix, so just shake this often as you are using it. I like to use a microfiber cloth when dusting, but any old cloth will work, especially if cotton.  Enjoy the fact that you won’t have to dust as often with this DIY because of the oil in it.  Whether you use fractionated coconut oil or olive oil, it is anti-static and that’s a win in my book. There are no skin or lung irritants in this making it healthy for you to use, and it smells great.

Supplies

  • 32 oz. glass spray bottle
  • 1 cup distilled water
  • 1/2 cup of unscented witch hazel or white vinegar
  • 1/4 cup fractionated coconut oil or olive oil
  • 1 Tablespoon unscented Castile soap
  • 20 drops Lemon essential oil optional-I am a woodsy fragrance girl so I also add 10 drops of Northern
    Lights Black Spruce, but the lemon on it’s own is wonderful! 
    optional- Dusting spray Label

Instructions

  1. Add all of the ingredients to your spray bottle and shake.
