A Lemon a Day Keeps the Toxins Away

There's a way to experience the benefits of lemons for your health and home without having produce on-hand or eating a lemon every day. And Lemon essential oil benefits skin and hair as much as its aroma enhances your environment and supports your mood.


Mix it with your cleaning products, use it during your nighttime skin care routine, or add a drop to your shampoo & conditioner for a cleansing, uplifting scent. You can even use Lemon Vitality for a gentle system reset and detox.

The liver is the filtering organ of the body, so that means that every.single.thing we ingest or put on our skin goes through it to some degree; it's incredibly important we show our livers some love! Not only is the liver the physical filter of our body, according to traditional Chinese medicine, anger and other negative emotions are stored in the liver. When the liver is functioning properly, it allows for the processing and release of both toxic emotions as well as physical toxins from our environment.


Not all essential oils are created equally and grabbing something labeled as an oil from the store will not only NOT give you the same results or benefits as the one's we're mentioning here, but it can actually be harmful for your body and filled with toxins. I say this from years of the personal experience of wasted time, energy, and money. Learn more about how we learned more about purity and quality standards and how we chose what was best for our family here.


DAILY HABITS WITH LEMON


One very simple way to show your liver some love on a daily basis is with Lemon Vitality. Lemon Vitality is cold pressed from the rind of the fruit (making it alkaline and not acidic) and a great support so our liver can do what it was made to.

  • Add 1-2 drops to warm water and drink first thing in the morning before any other food or drink.

  • Add 1-2 drops to your water and sip throughout the day. Pro Tip: Adding a little pink Himalayan salt to your glass, then the oil, then your water will help disperse the oil within the water better.

  • Toss raw greens (kale, arugula, spinach) with olive oil and Lemon Vitality for a light and beneficial salad.

Note: Each bottle has the same oil in it, they are simple labeled per FDA guidelines:

one for aromatic / topical use, one for supplement / ingesting.


DIFFUSE


Lemon is one of our favorites to add to the diffuser. Try out these fresh blends for the new year...

  • Luscious Lemon: 2 drops each of: Ylang Ylang, Lemon, Eucalyptus Globulous, Lemon Myrtle or Lemon Verbena, Spearmint, and 1 drop of Cinnamon Bark

  • Fresh Start: equal parts Lemon, Lavender, and Raven. This is a great blend to put in your diffuser while you shower. The steam + these powerful oils are so great for an uplifting breathing experience.


APPLY


As we head into another year, we want to focus on whole body health - physical and emotional. Our liver is a filtering and storage organ, and our emotions can take up root here. There is so much scientific evidence that our emotions have a direct impact on our physical health, so let’s commit to the work together! Lemon can help with release of many emotions, but here are three we can focus on right now.

  • Frustration is closely tied to our expectations (of ourselves, of others, or of a situation or outcome). The other side, or opposite feeling, of Frustration is Accomplishment. Most of the time when we feel frustrated is usually because we fear that we are not going to accomplish what we want to do/ feel/ or have happen. How many times does that happen with small people in the home? Releasing Emotional Patterns with Essential Oils suggests rubbing a drop or two of Lemon along the ribs, near the sternum (above the bile ducts), and focus on moving beyond your limitations or expectations. If we store up enough frustration that does not get resolved it turns to chronic anger, which is highly associated with liver and gall discomfort/ problems. So it's good to let the frustration go!


  • Lack, or the feeling of emptiness- when we don't feel "Complete". The other side of Lack is Full. This also makes this oil great for the Enneagram 7s and Enneagram 4s. Releasing Emotional Patterns suggests rubbing Lemon over the heart and chest while focusing on our completeness and all that we currently possess.


  • Stuck, the opposite of feeling Transformed and moving forward. When we feel stuck we fear experiencing life. So rubbing Lemon EO on our sinuses can be helpful for branching out and having new experiences and getting un-stuck. If you're going outside that day, use the Vitaflex points on hands and feet - the second toe or the creases of your first 3 fingers inside your palm - instead of applying this photosensitive oil to the nose.


MORE WAYS TO USE + LOVE LEMON

  • Diffuse with Thieves.

  • Add to a roller bottle with R.C. and apply an effective chest rub.

  • Use to easily remove stickers on glass (without the nasty chemicals).

  • Add a drop to your conditioner to promote shine in your hair.

  • Add a drop to your moisturizer to help clear occasional blemishes.

  • Add 1-2 drops to your dishwasher for sparkling dishes.

  • Add to your homemade cleaning products for extra power (just don't apply the oil directly to granite or marble).

  • Add to the ‘Nature Roller’: 10 drops each of Lemon, Lavender, and Peppermint in a 5mL bottle and use during every changing season or when you're going to be spending a lot of time outdoors or with animals.

Lemon is a key player in so many of our favorite hair and skin care products, like the Lavender Shampoo & Body Wash, our beloved Thieves cleaning products, and essential oil blends such as Thieves, Citrus Fresh, Clarity, Joy and Harmony.


Join us in using Lemon oil daily to support our health, physically and mentally. Let’s create healthy habits together as we head into this new year and make it our healthiest year yet!


Note: Because citrus oils can cause photosensitivity, avoid applying Lemon to exposed skin before spending time in the direct sunlight.
