How this Essential Oil is a Welcome Addition to any Home First Aid Box!
Lemon oil has so many positive benefits although many people may not have heard of its use as an essential oil. It can provide an excellent flavour when added to drinks or to food but Lemon oil can also help with health in a variety of other ways. Lemon oil blends really well with sandalwood oil, tea tree oil, lavender oil as well as rose oil and neroli essential oil. It is a good oil to use when building up a holistic first aid kit.
For anyone who is truly interested in learning more about aromatherapy in general, it is worthwhile investing in a good quality reference book which will contain a great deal of information about all the qualities and contra-indications which need to be considered.
Some of the health benefits to Lemon oil may be surprising but include the following:
- Helps to ensure a good nights sleep and so is useful in the fight against insomnia.
- Lemon oil makes a great tonic for hair and can also help alleviate dandruff, it is also wonderful for rejuvenating skin that is tired or has lack-lustre appearance, and can also help to treat a variety of skin disorders including pimples.
- Stress affects everyone and because the oil is naturally calming, it can help to reduce any exhaustion or mental fatigue. An added bonus is that it can also increase alertness and a positive frame of mind.
- Lemon oil can also be used to aid the treatment for asthma as well as for helping to lose weight.
Although these are the main health-care benefits, there are a multitude of other reasons why it is a good idea to invest in this essential oil. Adding a little to soaps or any face wash can help due to the antiseptic qualities of the oil and adding a little oil direct to a candle prior to burning will enable the distinctive scent and qualities of the Lemon oil to be inhaled.
