Lemon essential oil is a completely natural ingredient that also serves as a home health remedy. It’s extracted from the peel of fresh lemons using a “cold-pressing” process that pricks and rotates the peel as oil is released.
Lemon essential oil can be diluted and applied topically to your skin, as well as diffused into the air and inhaled. Some people swear by lemon essential oil as an ingredient that fights exhaustion, helps with depression, clears your skin, kills harmful viruses and bacteria, and reduces inflammation.
May reduce anxiety and depression symptoms
You may have noticed that when you use lemon-scented products for cleaning your home, you feel more relaxed and in a better mood afterward.
Of course, some of that might be the natural result of sprucing up your environment, but the actual scent of lemons probably plays a part in that calming feeling.
Can make your skin healthier
Lemon oil is one of several essential oils that can kill harmful bacteria that can grow on your skin.
It also has protective properties, such as antioxidants, that may brighten and preserve your skin tone.
Can act as a pain reliever
Lemon essential oil is sometimes used in aromatherapy as a natural analgesic. The anti-stress and antidepressant effects of this oil may have something to do with how it helps our bodies interpret our pain without panicking.
May help you breathe easier and soothe a sore throat
If you have a cold or are experiencing a sore throat, lemon essential oil is a good home remedy to try.
Try setting up a diffuser with lemon oil to release its sweet, tangy scent in your room while you get some rest. The calming properties of lemon oil can help relax both your mind and the muscles in your throat.
May be effective in treating and preventing acne breakouts
When diluted and applied topically, lemon essential oil can kill bacteria that may get trapped in pores and cause breakouts. It can also clarify your skin with antioxidants and vitamin C, gently exfoliating dead skin cells that so often become trapped in hair follicle and pores.
Since lemon oil has healing properties, you get the added bonus of speedier healing from breakouts and treatment of your acne scars when you use it.
May promote wound healing
Since lemon essential oil is packed with vitamin C, antioxidants, and antimicrobial properties, it might not surprise you to learn that this oil might belong in your first aid kit.
You can cleanse the area of a small cut or scrape with diluted lemon oil to sanitize it, discourage infection, and possibly help the wound heal more quickly.
Has antifungal properties
Lemon essential oil has powerful antifungal properties for treating certain skin overgrowths.
How to use this essential oil
You can safely use lemon essential oil by diffusing it or applying it topically.
To diffuse lemon essential oil, place three or four drops in the diffuser of your choice. Make sure you’re in a well-ventilated area, and limit your aromatherapy sessions to 30 minutes.
To use lemon essential oil topically, mix it well with a carrier oil of your choice.
Test the mixture on a small, inconspicuous area of your skin before you apply it somewhere sensitive, like your face. If after 24 hours you see redness or irritation, don’t use the mixture.
To avoid skin damage, make sure you wash off lemon oil before exposing your skin to sunlight.
Why are carrier oils important?
Topical lemon essential oil is safe to apply directly on your skin — if you use a carrier oil. Carrier oils are noncorrosive, less-concentrated oils that won’t harm the outer layer of your skin.
To dilute essential oils safely, add about 12 drops of your essential oil to every ounce of your base, or carrier oil. Popular carrier oils include almond oil, jojoba oil, and coconut oil.
Essential oils aren’t food-grade products and aren’t tested by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for safety. Lemon essential oils contain unstable elements, which mean they can oxidize and eventually go bad.
For your own safety, avoid ingesting lemon essential oil or any essential oil.
Lemon essential oil is an anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial ingredient that can help you boost your mood, find mental clarity, reduce stress, and more.
