Lemon oil is a favorite among Young Living Distributors. Citrus oils are extracted by cold pressing the rind of the fruit. It takes about 75 lemons to make one 15-ml bottle of Lemon essential oil
Lemon oil is known to have powerful cleaning properties which make it wonderful for use in your home, particularly the kitchen and bathroom. I often add a few drops of lemon oil to cleaning solutions for extra cleaning properties. Mix a drop in a teaspoon of water & wipe the kitchen counter and cutting boards. It makes the kitchen smell fresh too.
Add lemon oil to a spray bottle of water and spray surfaces in the bathroom and anywhere else you want to clean or deodorize. It also sanitizes the bathroom fixtures. It is great for diffusing to purify and deodorize the air. If you don’t have a cold diffuser, add a few drops of oil in a spray mister bottle with water and mist the air.
Using 1-2 drops of Lemon oil works well in removing gum, oil and grease spots.

Experiences With Lemon Oil:
I love using Lemon Oil on the vinyl floor in the bathroom it takes all the scuff marks off with no effort. I use Lemon Oil to clean everything in the bathroom, and then I run some very hot water in the sink, put the stopper in the drain and plop a few drops of Peppermint Oil in the water. I swish it around, and the aroma fills the room, I let the water run out of the sink and the next few times that people wash their hands, and run hot water into the sink, it smells great! — Deirdre
I thought that lemon might do the trick given something that happened recently that I’ve been meaning to post.
We have a Wok that we use pretty regularly. One night a few months ago, the person who was supposed to do dishes (not me..lol) decided to let the dishes sit till the next morning. We awoke to find the Wok basically unusable since the oil had hardened to a point that no amount of scrubbing would get it off. I’m sure all you cooks know of what I speak.
We tried many times…soaking and scrubbing and nothing worked.
Last week…we used the Wok the way it was and I was cleaning it. As per usual, I add a couple drops of lemon oil to my dish water and noticed something odd happening to the Wok. So I added a couple more drops of Lemon oil to the Wok to be sure.
AND…without putting any muscle into it…the hardened oil had started coming off. I kept scrubbing and wiping and it all came off in a few minutes. I was amazed and glad I didn’t have to buy a new Wok!! — Lauren
After cleaning fish lemon oil removes fishy smell from fingers instantly!
It’s also good to use in the dishwasher for sanitizing and fragrance! Lemony clean smell will fill the room when opening the machine. Nice! — Denese
Got another one for using Lemon oil also. After reading Peggy’s testimony about removing the double sticky tape it reminded me of it. My youngest son had fallen asleep with gum in his mouth. Anyway, the next morning it was in his hair… There were about 3 good spots that it was really a mess. I snipped out a little of it with scissors and then got out my Lemon oil. Put a drop on my fingers and rubbed them together with the gummy hair between them. WOW! Came right out! Didn’t take a whole lot either. I’ve also used Lemon oil to remove gum from clothes. Wish Lemon oil came in BULK size!! LOL!! — Lori
