  • Put a few drops on the cardboard insert of the toilet paper roll to keep your bathroom smelling great!

Nourished Nails

Lemon Essential Oil can be used in nail care to promote strong and healthy nails.
  • Add a few drops to a carrier oil such as jojoba oil or apricot kernel oil and apply it to your nails and cuticles to help to strengthen brittle nails, prevent yellowing, and moisturize dry cuticles.
  • Because of its cleansing properties, Lemon Essential Oil can also help to keep nails clean from fungal issues. Apply in the same manner as above.

Glowing Skin

Lemon Essential Oil can address various skin conditions. It can improve your complexion and leave your skin feeling soft and hydrated. It can help with everything from blemishes to aging to wound healing. However, we recommend using our Lemon Steam Distilled Essential Oil for skin care applications. Cold-pressed Lemon Essential Oil can be phototoxic - leaving your skin more sensitive to sun exposure and damage. You might be interested in these DIY's for skincare featuring lemon:

  • Add a few drops to your shampoo or conditioner to help remove excess oil and build-up.
  • You can also mix a few drops with a carrier oil and massage it into your scalp to help stimulate hair growth and prevent flakes.
  • It can even remove gum from hair! Rub a few drops of lemon oil into the gum to loosen it from the hair, adding more oil as needed until you’ll able to pull the gum free.
