Uses for Lemon Oil:

Lemon (Citrus lemon) has a strong, clean, purifying citrus scent that is revitalizing and uplifting.  It consists of 68 percent d-­limonene, a powerful antioxidant. One kilo of Lemon Essential Oil is equivalent to 3000 lemons so it is very powerful. In his book, The Practice of Aromatherapy, Valnet wrote that lemon is a tonic for supporting the nervous and sympathetic nervous system. But there is so much more this wonderful oil can do…
