Hi everyone, Krista Joy Palmer here!
I’m a big fan of doTERRA lemon essential oil, and I wanted to share some of the benefits I’ve experienced with it.
One of the things I love most about lemon oil is its energizing and invigorating aroma. It’s perfect for diffusing in the morning to wake me up and get my day started. I often say: Citrus in the morning to wake up and uplift, trees in the evening to calm, center and rest.
Lemon oil is also great for cleaning and purifying surfaces. I like to add a few drops to a spray bottle of water and use it to wipe down my countertops and kitchen surfaces.

And finally, lemon oil is a natural digestive aid. I sometimes add a drop to my water or tea to help keep my digestive system running smoothly. It’s a gentle detox every day. Consider 2 to 10 drops in your water every day, the benefits are amazing.
There is so much more to this amazing gift of the earth but that’s a start. One of the lowest cost essential oils, it is easy to take it for granted. But, the research keeps pouring in that this powerhouse is a must-have everyday.
