Did you know it requires about 3,000 lemons to make one kilo of lemon essential oil (Citrus limon)?
The aroma of the oil is (care to take a wager?) citrusy, sharp, and slightly sweet - kinda like a lemon. (Surprise!)
Lemon oil works primarily with the digestive, immune, and respiratory systems, promoting healthy function in the body. Aromatically, it's invigorating in a wake-you-up sorta way. It's also one of the most popular essential oils and has about a gazillion uses.
- Cleanses and purifies the air and surfaces
- Naturally cleanses the body and aids in digestion
- Supports healthy respiratory function
- Promotes a positive mood and cognitive ability
Emotionally and spiritually, lemon essential oil promotes focus and clarity. Its uplifting effects awaken the senses, clear the mind of distractions, and help a person tune in to the task at hand. It helps a person to overcome confusion or doubt, fatigue, overwhelm, and lack of enthusiasm, as well as helps to clear self-doubt, limiting beliefs, stagnant energy, and rigidness in the mind, heart, or body. It's great for bad moods, "blah" moods, or lethargy.
