Cold pressed from the peels of the bright, yellow lemon fruit, Lemon essential oil is a top-selling doTERRA favourite because of its versatility. Lemon oil is frequently added to food to enhance the flavour of desserts and main dishes. When added to water, Lemon oil gives a bright taste that helps encourage hydration throughout the day. Whether it is used as a naturally sourced cleaning agent in the home or diffused to brighten a room with its invigorating aroma, Lemon essential oil holds countless benefits.
Why should I add Lemon oil to my collection? Lemon essential oil has high contents of limonene—a key constituent in citrus oils, giving it strong cleansing properties when used topically. Use Lemon oil to clean commonly used surfaces or as an oral rinse for a brightening effect on teeth. When fresh lemons are not available, Lemon oil can add the same bright, citrus flavour to water or your favourite recipes.
