Lemon essential oil is where it is at, and let me tell you why, there are so many uses for lemon essential oil. It isn’t just for health concerns, lemon essential oil can also be used for those little around the house things, when you are not sure what to do. It is my most favorite oil and one that you will need to have on hand.
1. Detox The Body
Lemon essential oil is amazing in water, it makes it taste so much better. But it isn’t just for the taste that you put the lemon in your water. It is also amazing for flushing out the system. It detoxes the organs in your body and gets those toxins out. How cool is that? Makes water taste good and keeps all your organs free of toxins.
2. Get Sticky Stuff Off
You know how things always come with sticky tags on them, or sticky stuff gets on the counter? No more trying to get this off and failing. Lemon works wonderfully for this. Just put a few drops of lemon essential oil, straight from the bottle, onto the sticky spot, and let it sit for a little bit. Then wipe it with a cloth, and the sticky stuff will come right off.
3. For Cough
Seriously, when I have a cold, the only time I start to cough is when I am laying down trying to go to sleep. But not anymore, because one of the great uses for lemon essential oil is to help with cough. I put a few drops in my hand and then put directly on the front of my throat. And it works awesome. It usually stops my cough right away so I can get to sleep. But it doesn’t have to just be used at night, if you have a cough throughout the day, you can use lemon on your throat several times a day to help the cough.
4. Get Stains Out Of Clothes
Do you have a stain (such as paint or blood) on your kiddo’s clothes? Lemon essential oil will help get out that stain. Just put some drops from the bottle directly on the stain, let it sit for a little bit. Then, this is the cool part, use a tooth brush to brush the lemon around on the stain. And watch it come out. You may need to do this a couple times, but it will definitely help with that stain. No more buying new clothes because of one little stain.
5. Getting temporary tattoos and permanent marker off skin
I don’t know about you, but everywhere I turn someone is trying to put a temporary tattoo on my kid. I used to not even allow my boys to get them, because I could not ever get them off. Or the stuff to get them off had harsh chemicals in it. Well now, my boys can get those temporary tattoos they want because lemon essential oil with take them right off. Just put the oil directly on the temporary tattoo and rub with a cloth. It comes right off.
Same thing with permanent marker. My boys are kind of messy with the permanent marker and are always running their hands through the wet marker. Now, you can put some lemon oil on it and rub away the marker. There are just so many great uses for lemon essential oil and you should never be without it.
