Using Your Lemon Oil Part 2

Lemon is a very versatile oil with uses ranging from an invigorating massage blend to a refreshing steam inhalation. It was even used as an ingredient in medieval lucky charms.

Respiratory Infections

Lemon oil contains many active ingredients that help compact colds and infections, which is why it is often used to flavour cough sweets and medicines. Use lemon in any of the following blends at the first sign of a cold :

Steam Inhalation
In steam inhalation use :
– 2 drops lemon
– 2 drops cinnamon

The antiviral action of the steam infused with oils will stop many infections before they can take a real hold.

On a Handkerchief
Take a sniff of these oils at regular intervals throughout your working day:
– 2 drops lemon
– 2 drops rosemary
– 4 drops eucalyptus

Eucalyptus helps to clear congestion, and the rosemary, and lender will fight gems and cool feverish shivers.

Combine lemon, grapefruit, pine and eucalyptus for a cold busting steam inhalation.

  1. I love this so much!! I have been using lemon 🍋 oil as my body cream for three years now. I do it myself. It is the best decision I ever made. I will try this method if inhaling it.

      Awesome. Thank you for sharing that Princess. Lemon juice in lotions and creams is safe to put on your skin, and they probably won’t cause irritation. Products with citric acid in them can help fade dark marks and discoloration, and they aren’t dangerous like unfiltered lemon juice is.
