Say Hello to Lushious Lemon: Nature’s Bottled Sunshine
When life gives us lemons, we make summer in a bottle by capturing the zest of bright, sunny days in our unique Lushious Lemon™ essential oil blend. We’ve elevated our lively Lemon essential oil with a dash of floral Ylang Ylang and a few drops of cooling Spearmint and Eucalyptus Globulus to give you a blend that perfectly encapsulates the essence of summer.
A dreamy blend of botanicals
Let there be no confusion: We love the classics. And while Lemon essential oil will always be a household favorite, our Lushious Lemon blend perfectly elevates the citrus aroma we’ve come to know and love. This complex mix of essential oils elevates every note for a sweet, citrusy aroma with floral and minty undertones. Let’s take a deeper look at each of the botanicals we chose for this blend:
Lemon myrtle: Native to Australia and known as the “queen of lemon herbs,” lemon myrtle has an uplifting, refreshing aroma.
Lemon: Fresh, ripe lemons are grown on the Amanzi Amahle Cooperative Farm in South Africa. The rinds are cold pressed to obtain bright and joyful Lemon essential oil.
Ylang ylang: Grown and distilled at Young Living’s Finca Botanica Farm and Distillery in Chongon, Ecuador, ylang ylang has a comforting, floral aroma. Ylang Ylang essential oil can be used to moisturize and support the appearance of healthy skin.
Spearmint: Distilled at the Labbeemint Partner Distillery in Washington, USA, spearmint has a refreshing aroma, and the essential oil has a cooling sensation on skin.
Eucalyptus globulus: Native to China, eucalyptus globulus has a cool, invigorating aroma.
