Lemon is a powerful bactericide and disinfectant. Helpful during flu, bronchitis and cold season.It is said to stimulate the production of white blood cells to fight off invading bacteria, supporting the immune system. Diffuse in your home or work space with eucalyptus to avoid illness. It is an excellent tonifier for blood vessels, and can be used for varicose veins (along with cypress), broken capillaries, hemorrhoids and nose bleeds. Can be mixed with tea tree to remove corns and warts. Lemon is known as an effective detoxifier and astringent...great for oily skin issues. Lemon is vibrationally high, so it can lift the spirit, overcome mental fatigue and aid decision making.
We recommend keeping d-limonene rich oils in the refrigerator to decrease chance of oxidation. Photosensitivity is possible, particularly with cold pressed lemon oil. Skin sensitization is possible if using old and/or oxidized oils. Essential Oils are typically used via inhalation and/or topical application while properly diluted.
