Lemon Oil: Using lemon oil for anxiety February 07 2014

Anxiety can come and go, and is often the result of daily situations and occurrences. Lemon Days Island 100% pure lemon oil
oil (citrus limonium) contains a high content of d-limonene, a powerful antioxidant that is 
helpful in inhibiting the accumulation of toxins, which in turn acts to improve circulation 
and therefore oxygen to all organs. This allows for a clearer mind and body, which in turn 
creates an energizing effect. This increase in oxygenation helps to soothe the brain, allowing 
for clarity and function that can help ward off anxiety. Lemon oil has also been found 
possess mood-enhancing properties, having a positive effect on the brain and can greatly 
reduce mild anxiety. 
How to ease anxiety with lemon oil:
First thing in the morning, wake your senses by adding 1-3 drops of lemon essential oil to 
your shower. Lemon oil is very invigorating and can help your mindset in “taking on the 
day.”
Diffuse lemon oil in a steam vaporizer while working. The diffusion of the oil while in focus 
creates a warm and revitalizing scent that rouses the mind and allows for an increased 
ability to concentrate, easing worry and fears. 
For use topically, add a few drops to an unscented carrier oil (such as almond or jojoba) 
or lotion and rub on any desired part of the body. Adding a couple drops to a morning face 
regimen can help set the stage for increased mental function and stability throughout the 
rest of the day. 
Lemon oil can also be used topically in its pure form to help balance and restore. Add a few 
drops to the bridge of the nose, behind the ears, to reflex points such as the inside of the 
wrists, between the toes and on the bottoms of feet. 
For a quick brain boost, take 2-3 drops on your palms, rub them together, cup hands 
together, and inhale deeply. Repeat anytime a pick-me-up is needed. 
Our essential oil blend BOOM can also be substituted for lemon oil in these instances.
