lemonLemon 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.


Window Cleaner Recipe

White Vinegar
10-15 drops of Lemon Essential Oil
Fill bottle half way with vinegar
Fill balance of bottle with water and essential oil.
Shake & Use.


Garbage Disposals: A great way to freshen you garbage disposal is to put your lemon or orange peels in it.
Or, use a few drops of citrus oils! About five drops of orange or lemon makes the garbage disposal smell great!


A few drops of oil may be added to the dishwasher to help clean and purify. Some popular oils besides lemon are pine, orange, tangerine, and peppermint.


To clean hard floors, add 1/4 cup of white vinegar to a bucket of water. Then add 5-10 drops of lemon and pine.
If the floor is especially dirty, add Thieves Cleaner. This will clean even the dirtiest floor.


Carry lemon essential oil to clean your hands when in public places. Use a drop of lemon to disinfect your hands after using public restrooms. Also remember to use lemon to clean hands after touching door knobs, shopping cart handles and other surfaces in public areas.


Lemon oil has a high limonene content of between 54-72%, which is excellent for supporting a healthy immune system.


Use lemon oil to clean minor cuts and scrapes.

Put a couple of drops of lemon oil in your drinking water to purify the water. It also tastes great.


To clean and increase the shelf life of fresh fruit, fill a bowl with cool water and 2-3 drops of Lemon oil. Drop your cleaned fruit into the water and stir. Be sure all surfaces of the fruit contact the lemon water.


Lemon oil cleans the skin. It may also help brighten a pale, dull complexion by removing the dead skin cells.

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
