21 Uses for Lemon Essential Oil

Easy peasy lemon squeezy: 21 uses for Lemon essential oil

When your kitchen smells like the ghost of dinners past, you diffuse Lemon. When a child’s sticker leaves residue on your car window, you defy it with Lemon. When you need a little more spring in your step, you dilute Lemon with V-6™ and dab it on your wrist. Life is full of Lemon moments; it’s no wonder this essential oil is a Young Living favorite!

From brightened beverages to sparkling skin, we’re sharing 21 ways to use those little drops of liquid sunshine. Say hello to Lemon essential oil, your new zest friend!

Cheerful aromatic

Whether you’re tackling traffic or battling bad odors, Lemon essential oil’s zesty aroma can shed sunshine on the situation. Its invigorating scent is like the perfect rush-hour playlist—light, bright, and energizing!

1. Snuff out stinky smells by placing a Lemon-infused cotton ball in the refrigerator, bathroom drawer, or trash can.

2. Stay on task when working on that big business presentation or last-minute school project and add a few drops of Lemon to your diffuser.

3. Blast some great tunes on the radio—and Lemon oil in your Car Vent Diffuser—to channel your inner road warrior. Life is a highway!

4. Draw on the energizing aroma of Peppermint and Lemon oils when you need an aromatic pick-me up! Take a drop of each and dilute with 8 drops V-6. Apply the blend to your temples or behind your ears.

5. Look on the bright side by surrounding yourself with this blend’s stimulating aroma.

Skin Care Supestar

Chemical peels have nothing on these lemon peels! Radiant-looking skin is a real thing thanks to Lemon essential oil. Add a few drops to your skin care routine if you’re ready for glowing, gorgeous skin. Remember to use Lemon on your skin only at night or wait at least 12 hours before heading outdoors. Permission to fall in love with more lustrous skin? Granted!

6. Wake up to a complexion that has some serious wow factor by adding Lemon oil to your favorite night cream.

ART Gentle Cleanser

7. Give your face a hydration hug with a DIY face mask: 1 teaspoon coconut oil, 1 teaspoon honey, plus 1 drop Lemon oil. Apply and let sit for 15 minutes before rinsing with warm water.

8. Wash away the day’s stress and impurities with a Lemon-infused cleanser like our ART® Gentle Cleanser.

9. Treat the rest of your body to the skin-smoothing power of DIY loofah soapsand enjoy the sunny citrus scent of this at-home spa experience!

Cleaning wonder

If commercial cleaners had a popularity contest, lemon-scented products would win the gold. Unfortunately, so would products filled with harsh chemicals and toxic ingredients. When it comes to cleaning your home naturally, Lemon essential oil and other natural cleaners win best in show. If best in safe were a category, they’d win that too!

10. Find gum in your child’s hair? Liberate their locks with 1-2 drops of Lemon oil.

11. Discover your resident artist has left crayon drawings all over the bedroom wall? A little lemon oil goes a long way in creating a clean slate!

12. Fight oil with oil—for real! Battle greasy stovetops, counters, and dishes with a mix of Lemon and vinegar. Mix 20 drops with 1 cup white vinegar in a 16-ounce spray bottle and fill to the top with water. Spray those sticky surfaces and wipe clean with a damp cloth.

13. Infuse your laundry with the citrusy freshness of a lemon grove by adding 5-8 drops to the rinse cycle when washing clothes and towels.

14. Use Thieves® Household Cleaner—lemon is a main ingredient!—to get every part of your home sparkling. Check out these posts to learn some tricks for your bathroom and kitchen!

15. Banish hard-water buildup by tackling it with a paste made of baking soda, a little bit of water, and Lemon essential oil.

16. Dreaming of stainless steel sans syrupy fingerprints? Add 3 drops Lemon to a damp rag and polish those appliances to perfection!

17. Sit in some sap while on your great-outdoors getaway? Combine a drop of Lemon with a drop of V-6 and work it into that sticky spot.

Best food friend (BFF)

Lemon Vitality™ is your new BFF—a little bit tart, a little bit sweet, and a lot of citrusy goodness. Add a splash of citrus to your favorite vinaigrette or a burst of lemon to your famous baked oatmeal. Lemon essential oil is the perfect spice cabinet sidekick, whether you’re sipping or sautéing.

18. Convince your kids to eat the sliced apples in their school lunch by tossing them in 2 drops of Lemon Vitality essential oil. Lemon Vitality provides powerful antioxidants and will also help keep those vitamin-packed wedges from turning brown.*

19. Add a few drops of oil to a batch of Grandma’s lemon cookies. It’s a squeezyway to add some pucker power to her classic recipe!

Premium Starter Kit


🙂🙂Four years ago I discovered this kit & TODAY thru the 14th, its 10% off!

I had been introduced to oils through a very close friend and had been looking for alternative ways to take our wellness back. We had one daughter & was tired of feeling sick all the time. After being confronted on many different side effects of big pharma, I quickly realized the difference & it transformed our lives. Not only were the oils helping me get our family to a place of wellness, but giving me the opportunity to contribute to our finances & work towards freedom. Plus, science. I can’t argue with science. Who knew so much power resides in plants?
⁣⁣
But why Young Living? Everywhere we look there are oils, they’re basically in any store. But here is the deal, Seed to Seal. No one else has it. NO ONE. Call your essential oil company, ask them this question, “Where are your farms located and can I visit them at anytime?” if their answer is not “Yes!”, that’s not the company you want to be using. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
So if you’re anything like I was four years ago, wanting to makechanges, but unsure & skeptical, I’m here for you and I want to help you, because I understand.

Do Essential Oils Stain


Do essential oils stain?

From aromatherapy to workout recovery, you can use essential oils in some pretty cool waysGeranium reduces the appearance of fine lines, Lemon essential oil is perfect in DIY garbage disposal freshenersLavender oil promotes feelings of calm and relaxation, and our VitalityTM essential oils spice up your cooking. Pure essential oils are an important part of any routine, whether you’re talking skin care, cleaning, relaxation, or overall wellness. To help ensure your day is free of oil-related mishaps, we’re answering your questions about whether essential oils stain clothes and other fabrics. 

Blue Tansy essential oil

Q: Do essential oils stain? 

A: Other than the exceptions listed below, pure essential oils do not stain. Because they are volatile, the oil evaporates without leaving a grease stain on clothes or fabrics like you could get from a drop of carrier oil. Young Living’s pure essential oils don’t leave a greasy mark. 

Q: Which essential oils stain? 

A: Though pure essential oils don’t leave an oily spot, a handful of oils can leave a stain due to thenaturally occurring darker or yellowish coloring from the original botanicals. So be careful using these essential oils around your favorite white layering tee or Grandma’s heirloom linens.

Oils that stain due to a natural dark color: 

Oils that stain due to a natural yellow color*:

Myrrh essential oil

*The yellowish color fades, but you’ll still want to avoid using it around your whites. 

Q: How can these essential oils stain? 

A: Applying any of these oils directly on white fabric will leave a stain—which is okay if you’re trying a new tie-dye project. If tinting your t-shirt isn’t the plan, avoid doing the following with these oils:

  • Applying directly to the skin and then putting on clothes before the oil absorbs 
  • Adding to your laundry
  • Spilling on clothes or other fabrics

Q: How can I use the darker-colored oils? 

A: While it’s true that these essential oils have potential to stain, their bottles are full of powerful benefits. If used with care, you—not your clothes—will be golden! Here are a few ways you can use darker-colored oils:

Tangerine essential oil
  • Add a drop of Blue Tansy to your moisturizer to dilute its color and help reduce the appearance of blemishes.
  • Diffuse Jasmine to fill your home with a rich, sultry aroma.
  • Combine German Chamomile with our V-6TM Vegetable Oil Complex to enhance your massage.
  • Make a set of DIY bathtub crayons that double as soap.

FYI, these oils may stain your diffuser depending on the oil and the amount you use. Be sure to clean your diffuser after each use; check out this post for some helpful tips!

Q: Can I use essential oils as a stain remover? 

A: You’re in luck! We have a recipe for a stain remover stick made with Lemon essential oil and Thieves® Laundry soap. You can also use essential oils, and a few other natural ingredients, to clean up after your pets

BTW, some of your favorite blends include darker oils that could stain, like Peace & Calming® and Valor®. Remember to read the labels before adding them to your laundry!

What is the difference between PanAway, Deep Relief and Cool Azul?

PanAway, Deep Relief, and Cool Azul, which oil should you use and when? First off, there is no exact answer for everyone, each person has a different chemical make-up and each oil reacts differently on every person. Just as some people prefer lavender essential oil to create a soothing and calming environment before bed, others prefer Peace and Calming, and some prefer Cedarwood. Learning to use essential oils is a journey, so try experimenting with different oils to find your best fit! Below is a side by side comparison of these three oils so you can learn the difference and better understand which oil you may prefer to use for specific situations. All three oils are great to apply before and after activity and for a cooling sensation on the skin.

Deep Relief:
Comes pre-diluted in a roller-ball, making it easy to take on the go, throw in gym bag, and easy to apply.

Essential oils:
Peppermint
Lemon
Balsam Fir
Clove
Copaiba
Wintergreen
Helichrysum
Vetiver
Dorado Azul

Smell: Deep Relief does not have as strong of a smell as Panaway or Cool Azul because it is pre-diluted. Some people prefer the softer aroma. The invigorating, minty smells stand out the most!

Did you know? Menthol is responsible for the cooling sensation Peppermint causes when it is inhaled or applied to the skin!

For more information on Peppermint, Lemon, and Copiaba, Check out Young Living University in the Virtual Office! Under each oil is product micro-course!

PanAway:
All the oils in PanAway are found in Deep Relief, however, PanAway is NOT pre-diluted, making this a very potent and powerful essential oil. PanAway has a child proof cap because of the high amount of wintergreen essential oil. Wintergreen is high in a constituent called Methyl salicylate. Methyl salicylate is used as the active ingredient in many sports creams, but usually from a synthetic source.

Oils:
Wintergreen
Helichrysum
Clove
Peppermint

Smell: PanAway has a refreshing, stimulating and potent smell. The wintergreen aroma stands out more than it does in Deep Relief or Cool Azul. Some people say PanAway smells like rootbeer, this is because wintergreen is actually used to make rootbeer!

Did you know? Eugenol, the main constituent in clove, has been heavily researched for its beneficial properties.

For more information on PanAway, check out Young Living University in the Virtual Office!

Cool Azul:
Is not pre-diluted and features two Young Living exclusive oils: Dorado Azul and Plectranthus Oregano. Young Living is the only company that sells these two oils, and they are homegrown on Young Living farms! Cool Azul also has a child-proof cap because of the high amount of wintergreen essential oil.

Oils:
Wintergreen
Peppermint
Sage
Copaiba
Oregano
Tea Tree
Plectranthus Oregano
Blue Cypress
Elemi
Vetiver
Caraway
Dorado Azul
German Chamomile

Smell: Cool Azul smells much sweeter than Deep Relief and PanAway. I actually like this aroma the best because it is light, but yet uplifting, invigorating and sweet.

Did you know? Grown on Young Living’s Ecuador farm, Plectranthus Oregano has similar constituents and
properties as Oregano, but it is actually in the mint (Lamiaceae) family. It was named by D. Gary Young because of its oregano-like aroma.
