Who doesn’t love the smell of lemons? They smell so fresh and clean. They give off a fresh scent that is sure to brighten up your mood.

They have a variety of uses other than just flavoring your water or being added into your favorite recipes. You can actually use lemon to clean and remove bacteria from your bathroom and kitchen sinks and a whole lot more!

While lemon seems to have a stimulating effect that improves your mood and makes you feel better and more energetic, there are also so many other properties that lemon oil can provide for you!

Reasons For Why You Should Use Lemon Essential Oil:

Eases Stress: Lemon oil has a calming nature. This can help in removing anxiety, mental fatigue and even nervousness. Inhaling or diffusing lemon essential oil can help increase alertness and improve your concentration.

Skin Care: Lemon essential oil works as a natural astringent and has natural detoxifying properties. Both of these properties can help exfoliate dead skin cells, gently removing them from your skin, which leaves your face feeling fresh and clean. Simply add a couple drops of lemon essential oil to your homemade skin care recipes and you’re good to go!

Supports Your Immune System: Lemons contain numerous vitamins, each that provide different benefits to your body and help to support and improve your immune system. Lemon essential oil helps to stimulate your white blood cells that are required to help fight off infections and diseases. It can also help to bring down a fever. Add one drop of lemon essential oil and peppermint essential oil to the bottoms of your feet at night before bed.

Alleviates Stomach Issues: Lemon essential oil is carminative, meaning it helps to alleviate as well as prevent flatulence. Because lemon essential oil is carminative, it also helps in alleviating the symptoms of other stomach issues such as indigestion, upset stomach and cramps. Add three drops of lemon essential oil to your water to help reduce stomach issues.

Works As A Disinfectant: Lemon essential oil has antifungal and antibacterial properties. These properties make using lemon oil a wonderful and natural household cleaner. It can be used on your body, dishes, clothes and even metal surfaces. Simply add a few drops of lemon essential oil to white vinegar for natural cleaning.

Relieves Respiratory Infections: Lemon essential oil helps to clear your nasal passages and removes mucus in your nasal passages that could make it difficult for you to breathe. It can also help improve the symptoms of colds, the flu and also help sooth a sore throat. To alleviate the symptoms of a respiratory infection, combine three drops of lemon oil, peppermint oil and lavender oil and rub on the bottom of your feet as well as behind your ears and neck. To soothe a sore throat, add a few drops of lemon oil to hot water and honey and drink.

There are different grades available for essential oils, which can make it difficult to purchase the correct oil. The lower grade oils are usually found online or in your local grocery store. These are typically used for cleaning supplies and perfumes. If you choose to use essential oils for medicinal purposes, you will want to check with the company to make sure that the oil is safe to ingest.

What Our Clients Say*

During my FitLife transformation, I lost 70 pounds! That's why I signed up for the protocol, but the most exciting result is that I found ME in the process. I had been hiding under a pile of pounds, self-doubt, and grief! FitLife changed my life and I knew I had to share it with others.

-Lynne, Longwood FL

I started with Fitlife back in 2011-2012…I wrote into Fitlife asking for an extreme amount of help. I was 300 pounds, with high cholesterol, and Drew helped me transform my life. I lost over 130 pounds and I no longer have high cholesterol. Not only did I lose weight, so did my husband, who lost over 70 pounds!
