Observations and Anecdotal Information
Lemon essential oil has so many uses, that it should be included in every aromatherapist’s medicine cabinet. It helps to detoxify the liver. It improves digestion, and can help balance blood sugar and stimulate the pancreas and liver.
It is an internal aid for kidney and bladder infections, and a choice herbal remedy for nephritis. I like to include a few drops of lemon in any kidney formula, as it helps to balance the kidneys.
Lemon essential oil is also a great lymphatic and circulatory stimulant. It helps to detoxify the lymphatic system when taken internally over time.
It feels warming on the surface, but is cooling to the interior of the body, pushing heat to the skin’s surface to balance summer heat.
This oil is generally regarded as safe at normal doses.
Avoid use with infants, unless supported by a health care professional.
All citrus oils can be photo toxic. Do not use within 24 hours of UV light or direct sun exposure.
Keep all essential oils away from eyes.
Store in a safe place, out of the reach of children.
Pet information: Cats may not respond well to conifer oils and citrus oils. Avoid usage for cats.
All internal uses should be researched and/or supported by a health care professional. Product quality and dosage are critically important when using essential oils internally.
