The Oil of Focus

This is the oil to always remember as “all things cleansing” as lemon is a very powerful cleansing oil.

I encourage you to do your own research on d-limonene.

dōTERRA’s Lemon essential oil main constituents is d-limonene which is a SUPER powerful antioxidant.

dōTERRA’s lemon is harvested from the orchards of Sicily. The environment plays a key role in the potency of any plant. Growing season, elevation, climate, moisture, soil, terrain, and pH all factor into the quality or potency of the essential oil produced. Which is where sourcing truly matters.

Top uses for Lemon include:

  • 5 cents per drop!
  • Diffuse with Lavender + Peppermint when your body is reacting to the environment.
  • Neutralize odours in the air by diffusing lemon on its own
  • Dissolves anything sticky! Adhesives, gum, tree sap you name it! Just apply a drop directly on.
  • Dry up a runny nose – apply 1 drop of lemon to the bridge of nose and deeply inhale.
  • Add 2 drops to a large glass of water for the cleansing effects of the limonene in lemon
  • Pamper yourself by mixing a few drops with Melaleuca and fractionated coconut oil and apply on tired, dry, cracked feet.
  • Flavor Boost. Add a drop of Lemon essential oil anytime you are cooking with lemon juice (Salmon on the BBQ, Lemon merengue pie, Lemon zest, lemon dressing, lemon blueberry muffins) to give it a deeper, more rich flavor. In soothing winter teas, you can simply add Lemon essential oil to warm water, an herbal tea and honey.

  • Nourish Your Leathers & Furniture. Preserve and prevent leather from splitting with a Lemon soaked cloth. Also, a few drops of Lemon essential oil combined with a few drops to olive oil makes a great furniture polish.
