It’s time to get to know a popular essential oil that comes from a recognizable and refreshing yellow citrus fruit. Lemon (not to be confused with Lemongrass, which has a different source) is dōTERRA’s top-selling essential oil! As we will see, this oil’s popularity has been well earned.
A powerful cleansing agent that purifies both air and surfaces, Lemon essential oil can be used as a non-toxic cleaner throughout the home. To use it for this purpose, add a few drops of Lemon to a spray bottle filled with water. Clean tables, counter-tops, and other surfaces with this mixture. You can also add a few drops of Lemon essential oil to olive oil in order to clean, protect, and shine your wood finishes.
Lemon is frequently added to water, as well as desserts and main dishes, to provide a refreshing and flavor-enhancing boost. Aromatically, Lemon is best described as a clean, fresh, bright citrus, which explains why it promotes a positive mood!
