Lemon Oil: Using lemon oil to uplift March 17 2014
Lemon has fantastic energizing properties, having a stimulant-like effect on the brain and an energizing effect on the body. Lemon oil 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 and mood enhancing effect.
The uplifting effect of lemon oil translates to both mind and body, and can be used as an alternative to ingested stimulants like caffeine. If you find yourself in a physical or emotional slump, try lemon oil for a mind-body boost.
How to give yourself a lift with lemon oil:
For a quick and revitalizing energy boost first thing in the morning, combine a couple drops each of lemon oil and peppermint oil in 8 to 12 ounces of water. Add stevia or honey as desired and serve over ice for a refreshing pick-me-up. This can be repeated again several times throughout the day, whenever you need a pick-me-up.
For an additionally invigorating start to your day, simply add a few drops of lemon oil to your shower. The warm water will help diffuse the oil and the energizing scent will surely assist in revving both mind and body.
Add a few drops to a spray bottle of distilled water for an enlivening room spray and air freshener. A vapor diffuser can also be great for this—simply add a few drops of lemon oil and let the refreshing steam take over.
Place 1-2 drops on palms, rub together, and inhale before a workout or during a mid-day slump. This can boost your mood and reduce fatigue.
Place 3 drops of undiluted lemon oil on the base of the neck, beneath the chin and on the bottoms of the feet. This will allow for both easy absorption and inhalation to maximize benefits.
