Using Your Lemon Oil Part 3

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.

Lemon Facial Tonic

Lemon can be used alone or in blends as a facial toner. Try the following blend on oily skin :
– 2 drops lemon
– 2 drops sandalwood
– 2 drops peppermint
– 2 drops cypress
– 30 ml water

Lemon’s stimulating properties tighten up lines on older skin, especially when combined with oils such as myrrh and frankincense. Lemon is a great natural skin tonic.

Folklore of Lemon

  • Due to its high content of vitamin C, lemon was used on English ships for centuries to prevent sailors form getting scurvy.
  • Rinsing your hair with lemon juice has long been believed to act as a natural highlighter, making blonde tresses become even lighter and more golden.
  • For thousands of years, singed doused in lemon juice have been used by women as a barrier contraceptives.
  • In Mediterranean countries, such as Spain, lemon was viewed as a wondrous “cure all”, particularly for fighting off infectious illnesses.
