This month we have been focusing on lemon essential oil as the EO of the month. This extremely versatile and cost-effective essential oil has many different uses around the house including being a great option for cleaning, diffusing aromatically for an uplifting scent, as well as being added to food in the kitchen for a great flavour boost.
Lemon essential oil is extracted from the lemon rinds, or peel of the lemon. The lemon rinds are cold pressed to produce lemon essential oil. An expression distillation process, cold pressing is typically used for citrus oils when producing essential oils, and uses high mechanical pressure to produce oil from the lemon rind.
One of the simplest, yet most impactful ways to incorporate lemon essential oil into your every day life is by simply adding a drop or two to a glass of tap or mineral water. This article will explore five benefits of adding lemon essential oil to your water, preferably the first glass you have of the day so that you can start your day off in a healthy way.
