Health Benefits of Essential Oils - Lemon Oil

Lemon Essential Oil is a completely natural ingredient that can also serve as a healthy home remedy. It is one of dōTERRA's top-selling essential oils, do you know why?!

Adding it to your daily routine can help prevent many health conditions, including; inflammation, cold, flu, cancer, and many more. It is also great for detoxifying and alkalising the the body plus helps you to boost your mood.

Here's how to include it in your routine.

Therapeutic grade doTerra Lemon essential oil is versatile and has multiple health benefits and uses. When added to water, Lemon provides a refreshing and healthy cleanse and boost throughout the day. A perfect addition for your daily wellness routine, packed with vitamins, minerals, bioflavonoids and an amazing source of antioxidants.

Lemon essential oil has been used to treat lots of health conditions for over 1000 years. Lemons are a powerful healing fruit that contain phenomenal antibiotic, antiseptic and anti-inflammatory properties. Yes for me!

Lemons are very high in antioxidants, rich in vitamins C and B-complex and minerals such as iron, calcium, magnesium, silicon, copper, and potassium. Lemons are best known for their detoxifying properties and can help to cleanse and detoxify the entire body!

Limonene - Lemon Oil Compound

Lemons contain a compound called Limonene which is used to dissolve gallstones and kidney stones and can help to fight oral, lung, skin, breast, stomach, and colon cancer. Animal studies show that Limonene, a major component of Lemon essential oil, has anti-tumour properties. Also composed of Limonene and beta-Pinene, two monoterpenes that are known for their uplifting properties, so while used in a diffuser it can improve your mood; trust me I have tried it. Every time I need to do something creative or uplift my mood, I add a mixture of any doTerra citrus oils to my diffuser, (mainly lemon, but I must say I do love grapefruit or orange too :) ) and mixed with other doTerra essential oils too, works its magic… there are so many to choose from and they all have tremendous health benefits. I know how much they have benefitted my and my family and friends health. I have never looked back from the first moment that I tried them!!

Alkalise The Body

In my opinion, consuming a glass of Lemon water or few drops of doTerra Lemon essential oil mixed with water is the best way to keep yourself in ‘top shape’. Lemon Essential oil has a very strong alkaline reaction on the body and can help to alkalise blood, cells, lymph, organs, and tissues. We need to remember what the Nobel prize winner said that:

“No disease, including cancer, can exist in an alkaline environment.”

-Dr. Otto Warburg

Alkaline water is one of the best things you can do for your health. Lemon oil has a cleansing, purifying and protective effect on the body. It helps the body to defend against harmful pathogens and promotes detoxification through the blood and liver. Accordingly to dr. Axe, Lemon oil also stimulates lymphatic drainage, which helps the body to cleanse itself of wastes and toxins.

Immunity and Bacteria

Lemons have antibacterial and anti-fungal properties which helps to destroy putrefactive bacteria in the mouth and intestines which can help indigestion, and constipation. It works as a natural remedy for many oral conditions, can prevent tooth decay and can help with bad breath too.

If you want to boost your immune system for winter and prevent or treat colds, doTerra lemon essential oil works a treat. Considering one 15 ml bottle of doTerra Lemon Essential Oil is equal to 45 organically grown, fairtrade and cold-pressed lemons..... WOW... it’s like a living plant essence, extract of the fruit, which vibrates high within your body up to 24h after taking it.

Optimise Your Frequency

It's all about vibration guys too, as in a high vibrating body disease can not thrive, like Nikola Tesla famously said:

“If you want to find the secrets of the universe, think in terms of energy, frequency and vibration.”

Too right! On average, the healthy human body has a frequency of 62 to 72 megahertz (MHz). The different things that we come in contact with on a daily basis, can raise or lower this frequency. For example, if you’re feeling under the weather and have the sniffles due to a minor bug, your body frequency might be a tiny bit lower than usual; colds and flu occurs around 58MHz and cancer occurs at around 42MHz. Essential oils go through brain, blood and body barrier and increase the vibration of your body! Wohooo! It turns out, essential oils tend to have very high frequencies, generally ranging from 52 MHz to 320 MHz (depends on oil). Some have claimed that essential oils have the highest frequency of any organic substance available, nice one!!!

Do not hesitate to try it, you will not regret it and you’ll beg me for more :)!

Why not improve your health in the most natural way you can?!!

Remember Lemons are also rich in bioflavonoids which can significantly boost the immune system and reduce inflammation in the body which is the key with any autoimmune condition and I have checked it out!

Lemon is definitely one of many in my daily routine.

Common Health Conditions

Also, Lemon juice is known to be particularly beneficial for colds, coughs, sore throats, nausea, hiccups, ear infections, fevers, arthritis, heart disease, atherosclerosis, diabetes, high cholesterol, autoimmune disorders, stroke, and cancer. Promoting fat loss and detoxification.

Lemon Essential oil benefits your skin too. Mix it with a carrier oil, eg. organic coconut oil (please ask me for proportions if you not sure) and check it out yourself.

I do love it combined with different essential oils too; it works its magic, trust me, and it’s super easy to make too!! Definitely one of my fav’s from the range of doTerra essential oils for my face/hands/feet/all body cream!

Due to Lemon’s oil strong antioxidant activity and anti-ageing effects, it is a great remedy for wrinkles, warts, toothaches, corns, sunburns, acne, psoriasis, and as a hair rinse. Lab studies show that Lemon oil is able to reduce cell and tissue damage in the skin that’s caused by free radicals, which is simply amazing!

Lemon oil is used for a variety of skin conditions including acne, as it can kill bacteria that may get trapped in pores and cause breakouts. It can also clarify your skin with antioxidants and vitamin C, gently exfoliating dead skin cells that so often become trapped in hair follicle and pores. When applied topically with carrier oil it has the added bonus of speeding up healing from breakouts and treatment of your acne scars when you use it.

Do you think you could feel more energised?

How I Use It?

I find it: ‘a must-have!’ - defo yes! Plus my whole family use it and take it due to sooooo many health benefits; detoxification is the main one as we live in such a toxic environment. :(

Lemon is a powerful cleansing agent and purifies the air and surfaces, mixed with water it is amazing non toxic cleaner for all the house purpose.

My 3 year old loves cleaning with it, and gives me peace of mind she keeps safe and far away form conventional cleaners that are full of toxicity.

We use it orally, topically, diffuse it and also cleaning with it too. You name it - we do it :) Can’t get enough! All my family simply love it, once you try them, you will never look back. :)
