Therapeutic Grade Lemon Essential Oil (Citrus limon) has a strong, purifying, fresh, clean citrus aroma that is uplifting, invigorating, and revitalizing as well as helping to clear one’s mind while being an instant pick-me-up. According to Jean Valnet, M.D., it has cleansing properties when diffused and helps to support normal immune function. It also helps to promote mental activity when diffused.
Pure lemon essential oil contains 68% d-limonene which is a powerful antioxidant when taken internally. This oil may be beneficial to the skin, is delightfully refreshing when added to water, can be used to enhance food flavors, and can be used as an insect repellent as well as being deterring to other pests. Believed to offer support to a healthy immune system, create an overall sense of well-being, and facilitate relaxation, lemon essential oil also helps to maintain proper digestive function, helps to support a healthy cardiovascular system, and is a very effective ingredient as a piece of a beauty regimen.
Young Living makes this pure essential oil by cold-pressing lemon rinds. Jean Valnet, M.D. estimates that it takes about 3,000 lemons to produce 1 kilo of this amazing oil. In his book, The Practice of Aromatherapy, he wrote that lemon is a tonic useful in helping to support the sympathetic nervous system.
