How to Use Lemon Essential Oil

12 Surprising Lemon Essential Oil Uses

Y’all. I seriously use lemon oil for everything. I’ll be honest…I’m still surprised when I get an email or a Facebook message from someone who asks me how to use lemon oil. For me, it’s second nature to grab my bottle of lemon oil for just about everything:

  • Combine 2–3 drops of lemon oil with water in a spray bottle to let your kids safely wipe down surfaces.
  • Blend a drop of food grade lemon essential oil into your pancakes for a healthy, tasty breakfast.
  • A drop of lemon oil on a blemish may help minimize oil production.
  • Soothe aching feet by rubbing lemon oil on the affected area morning and evening.
  • Massage lemon essential oil into cellulite to help support circulation.
  • Add lemon essential oil to your morning tea or breakfast shake for a refreshing pick-me-up.
  • Inhale lemon oil or place a few drops on a cotton ball to replenish your mind, body, and spirit.
  • Add 10–15 drops of lemon essential oil to a gallon of carpet cleaning solution to help brighten carpets and leave a fresh smell in the room.
  • Add 2-3 drops of lemon oil to your chicken marinade for a delicious dinner.
  • Place a few drops of lemon (or any other citrus) essential oil in some baking soda in your refrigerator to help eliminate odors and make everything smell citrusy.
