Lift Care Lemon Essential Oil 5x Extra Strength Review #Lemonoil

I am slowly getting into habit to incorporate essential oils in my day to day routine, health or beauty o household. Essential Oils have so many benefits and uses that it is like ocean for me to learn and understand the benefits. My first experience was wit Lavender essential oil but I just used it at basic level for massage to relax and soothe the muscles and in diffuser. I was researching more on this topic when I was lucky to receive an opportunity from Lift Care Essential Oil to try their Lemon Essential Oil. Now I was super excited as I had not tried lemon one yet and already read up quite a lot of ways it could be helpful but what really got me interested was the fact that this one has EXTRA Strength (5 times) which really caught my attention.

I received a huge 4 oz of bottle which I must say is value for money. The usual essential oils bottles I have seen on the market are way too small and get over pretty quick. It comes with a dropper which helps you to control the drops of essential oil you need. As soon as you open the bottle you are bombarded with the strong aroma of lemons, fresh and citrus like. It is transparent in color. As per the brand this essential oil carries the strongest concentrate because it is taken from the peel of ripe fruit via cold expression. This means less drops are needed per use because of the higher concentration. I am really impressed with the quality and purity Lift Care Lemon essential oil and have used it variety of ways in my day to day life, health/beauty/household.

BeautyWell lets first talk about beauty as it my favorite topic :) Lemon essential oil improves your complexion and leave your skin soft and supple. Its antiseptic properties help in treating pimples and various skin disorders. Lemon is also recommended for reducing excessive oil on the skin. Since this oil is highly concentrated mix it with carrier like argan oil or coconut oil to apply on skin. Do not apply directly it is even stated on bottle's Direction to use section. I add 2 drops of lemon essential oil to 6-7 drops of argan oil and apply on skin, face and body. It has bought glow to my skin which I am loving. My hubby even jokes about the scent of lemons all over me as soon as I apply it. It energizes me and makes me feel fresh naturally. You can add oil to your face mask for better results. I would advise use few drops first to judge how your skin reacts. Add few drops to your shampoo or simply olive/argan oil for oiling hair, it will bring back the lost shine to your locks and also helps clear dandruff.

HouseHold - The next favorite use was around the easy and I cannot believe it helps me save so much I am already spending on disinfectant products. Add 2 - 3 drops of lemon oil to water and spray counter top surface to sterilize (kitchen, bathroom, sinks, tables). Soak your dishcloth overnight in a bowl of water and a drop of lemon oil to disinfect and kill germs. It also works as spot cleaner, use 1 - 2 drops of lemon oil to remove gum, oil, grease spots or crayon marks from surfaces. Add 40 drops lemon oil and 20 drops tea tree oil to a 16-oz spray bottle fill with pure water (and a little bit of white vinegar) for a traditional cleaning favorite. It even helps get rid off the smell when you forget your laundry in washer too long, just add few drops and run a cycle. I have used it yet for wood cleaning but I have read cleaning with cloth soaked in lemon oil add shine to wood furniture and silver jewelry.

Aroma Therapy - Aroma Therapy is trending these days, put your favorite essential oils in diffuser to get scent dispersed in room. I add few drops of lemon, orange and lavender essential oil in my diffuser. The mix is amazing, you can play around with your favorites. Lemon oil is calming in nature and therefore helps in removing mental fatigue, exhaustion, dizziness, anxiety, nervousness and nervous tension. It has the ability to refresh the mind by creating a positive mindset and removing negative emotions. It is also believed that inhaling lemon oil helps in increasing concentration and alertness.

CAUTION - Avoid going out in the sun immediately after using lemon essential oil as it can cause sun burn.
