“Diffuse for a calming and relaxing aroma. Blends well with other citrus oils, Cassia, Cinnamon, Eucalyptus, Geranium, and Lemongrass. Take internally to help ease feelings of tension, help calm the nervous system, and promote restful sleep.* Before going to bed, add a few drops of Petitgrain oil along with Lavender or Bergamot to pillows and bedding for its aromatic benefits. Add one to two drops to water or juice and drink to help support the health of the cardiovascular, immune, nervous, and digestive systems.*”
“Petitgrain essential oil is derived from the bitter orange tree, which has a long history of use in traditional health practices. Historically, Petitgrain essential oil has been used for cleaning purposes and it has been used internally to support healthy immune system and nervous system function.* Emerging scientific evidence provides support for these traditional and other uses. There are three essential oils derived from the bitter orange tree. Petitgrain oil is distilled from the leaves and twigs of the tree, Neroli essential oil is distilled from the blossoms, and Bitter Orange oil is produced by cold pressing the rinds of the fruits. Petitgrain essential oil is widely used in the perfume industry, giving body sprays, fragrances, lotions, and colognes a fresh, herbaceous note that is popular among both women and men.”
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.
Did you know lemon oil is an easy sticky tag and sticker remover? Try it!
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.
