There are so many health fads out there. They promise everything from a full-body detox, to losing unwanted pounds, to having glowing skin — you’ve heard it all. But there comes a time when you want to find a real solution to rid yourself of your daily aches and pains, boost your mood, and improve your day.
But what’s the solution that actually works?
Turns out you’ve come to the right place because we’ve got just the thing — vibrant, fresh, and invigorating lemon essential oil. This remedy is no new health fad, it’s an ancient remedy that actually works.
That’s why at ADORAtherapy we thought now’s the best time to shine a light on this miracle essential oil. So, without further ado… Let’s dive into the history, benefits, and the many ways you can use it to boost your wellness and make your day a whole lot easier.
Where was the first lemon found?
The truth? Nobody knows.
It’s believed by many historians that the first lemon was naturally grown in north-western India. Even though today, you’ll find it growing wild all over the world — from Italy's Amalfi Coast and Sicily, to the San Joaquin Valley in California, to the over 500 acres of lemon fields in Florida.¹
Out of all these destinations, the most appealing has to be Italy (in our opinion). There you’ll find exquisite food, breathtaking scenery, and passionate people. And if by chance you do travel there (perhaps, for a romantic getaway or a much-needed girls trip), don’t forget to walk through one of Italy’s most scenic routes — the lemon groves of the Amalfi Coast.
What are the benefits of lemon essential oil?
Lemon essential oil is most easily recognized by its strong aroma and citrusy scent. And it’s best known for its anti-inflammatory, antiseptic, antioxidant, antimicrobial, and astringent properties.
Here are the many health benefits of using lemon essential oil:²
Reduce anxiety and depression
Ease morning sickness
Improve skin health
Improve cold symptoms
This oil packs quite the punch when it comes to health benefits, but it can also be used in a variety of other ways.
What is lemon essential oil used for?
Lemon essential oil can be used for so many things — from cleaning up your home, to keeping away insects, to building the foundation for better health. But at Adoratherapy, we like to focus on the best benefit of all (in our opinion) — boosting your mood for an instantly better day.
Here are our favorite mood boosts when using lemon essential oil:
#1 — Happy and Positive
We often turn to lemon essential oil during our most troubling and turbulent times. It’ll take you from distraught and miserable to radiating happiness, confidence, and positivity. A little positivity goes a long way and this makes for a “glass half full” kind of day.
#2 — Productive and Focused
Stuck at the 3 o’clock in the afternoon slump? Instead of reaching for another cup of joe, try turning to lemon essential oil. It’ll provide a welcoming boost of productivity and focus, leaving you ready to get your work done without skipping a beat. It’ll also prevent you from drinking more caffeine than you should and then crashing even harder later.
#3 — Uplifted and Energized
Easily uplift your mood and energize your mind with lemon. The fragrance on its own can subtly trick your mind into thinking you’re full of energy, mentally ready for anything, while also uplifting your soul. If your brain thinks you are, then you will be.
#4 — Loved and Balanced
We love using lemon essential oil to increase self-love for ourselves and create true balance in our Solar Plexus Chakra. Once your Solar Plexus Chakra is in balance, you’ll feel a positive impact to your personal power, ego identity, respect, and self-assurance. Lemon essential oil is one of nature’s secrets to making sure we achieve balance and self-love during times of meditation and solitude.
How to safely use your own lemon essential oil:
To be safe, test an area of your skin to make sure you're not sensitive to lemon essential oil.
When applying lemon essential oil to your skin make sure you avoid sun exposure for at least 8-12 hours after applying because this oil tends to make your skin more sensitive to sunlight.
To instantly boost your mood, protect your immune system, and increase your energy levels, put a few drops of lemon essential oil in your diffuser or use aromatherapy room boost and perfumes.
Never put essential oils directly on your skin unless you're using a carrier oil like jojoba, olive, or coconut oil.
Our Final Thoughts.
While we’re not sure where the first lemon was grown, we’re positive that lemon essential oil can help boost your mood, increase your mental clarity, help you feel energized, and more.
And the best part is you don’t have to travel to Sicily for this decadent oil, you can find it right at your local health store or online.
If you want to indulge yourself in a water-based perfume that:
is formulated with clean ingredients (lemon, lime, and cinnamon)…
will boost your mood…
will heal your solar plexus chakra so you’ll feel empowered and productive…
AND that smells like you’ve been transported to the lemon fields of Italy…
