Lemon has a light, fresh citrus scent that’s uplifting, energizing, and promotes optimism. Lemon is great to add to household cleaners, soaps, and air fresheners or diffusers. It helps support healthy immune, respiratory, circulatory, and digestive systems. Lemon is one of the best essential oils for skincare because of its natural astringent properties - it can be used as a skin toner, to balance oily skin, and brighten dull skin. Commonly used to ease stress and combat fatigue.
A natural astringent, harness Lemon's toning power in this cocoa body butter recipe, Lemon Ginger sugar scrub, and this homemade face and body scrub. Use Lemon essential oil in homemade natural cleaning solutions like this recipe for a freshening Lemon and Lavender Rug Powder, or in these easy surface cleaning wipes and surface cleansing spray with Thyme.
