Lemon Oil: Using lemon oil for balanced skin tone April 04 2014

Days Island 100% Pure Lemon OilUneven skin tone is one of the most common skin complaints out there. 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, particularly the skin as it constantly regenerates itself.


It is important to note that lemon essential oil increases the skin’s phototoxicity (also referred to as photo sensitivity).  This may intensify the sun’s effect on your skin, so caution should be used when applying lemon oil to the skin. It’s best used in small amounts, especially in the beginning, and should always be diluted before being applied to the skin.


How to use lemon oil for glowing skin:


For best use topically, use one part lemon oil with one part carrier oil (such as jojoba, almond or coconut) and apply directly to the skin.


Add 2-3 drops of lemon oil to your regular daily moisturizer. Apply morning and night.


Make a facial toning mist by mixing 2-3 drops of lemon oil per 8 ounces of water or witch hazel. Spray directly onto skin or apply gently with a cotton ball before bed.


Lemon oil can also be added (1-3 drops) to daily body lotion or body oil. Massage into skin and repeat daily for healthy skin. 


Add 5-10 drops to a warm bath and soak for 10-20 minutes. This allows for the entire body to absorb the rejuvenating properties of lemon oil.


To prevent toxin accumulation from the inside out, take 1-3 drops under the tongue or in a glass of water daily.
