Lemon Puts the “Essential” in Essential Oils
Lemons have been around for a long time. Thought to have originated in northern India, they have played a large role in Ayurvedic healing for centuries. They came over to America in 1493, when Christopher Columbus brought them to Hispaniola, and have flourished in the southern part of the US for centuries.
Lemon oil is known as possibly the most effective and beneficial essential oil made today. It is used as an essential oil to treat a wide range of conditions, like stress, indigestion, blood pressure issues, weight problems and cellulite. Lemon oil has disinfectant qualities, so it makes wonderfully effective and economical cleaning products, and can be used in housecleaning, laundry, shampoos and more.
