Lemon Essential Oil - The Oil of Focus

What comes to mind when you think of lemon? I instantly think of that citrusy, fresh, tart smell and taste and doTERRA's lemon essential oil is a bottle of just that! It actually reminds me of those lemon flavoured lollies you get in a tin, anyone remember those? Terrible for you i'm sure, but not this EO!

Lemon is the oil of focus, supporting the emotional body, especially in the mental field. Diffusing lemon or even just taking a big whiff from the bottle and breathing in the citrusy aroma engages the mind, bringing presence and clarity to the task at hand.

I personally love diffusing lemon with rosemary and wild orange while i work. It's the perfect uplifting, fresh scent to dive into work that requires my full attention and helps keep me on task without distraction.

How can you use lemon EO for Your Intention?

  • lemon oil can help exfoliate your skin so you can DIY your own face scrub, adding a few drops of oil into your desired mix
