Our Top 4 ways we use lemon essential oil every day?
#1: Digestive Aid and Flavor
The morning starts with a couple of drops of Lemon vitality oil in a big glass of water! The citrus taste is crazy refreshing and helps you feel more alert to get your morning moving. If we get at least one tall glass of this goodness down right away, we’ve got a good start on my eight glasses for the day!

You’ve heard us talk about our favorite seasonal relief rollerball mix before. One of the 4 ingredients is lemon. This blend goes on our sinus areas every morning, every night before bed, and as many times as we need it during the day. We roll it on the minute we feel any hint of unhappy sinuses due to seasonal conditions outdoors or indoor fragrances or chemicals!
Lemon can be used aromatically in a diffuser, taken internally, or applied topically to the skin to promote feelings of wellness. Adding a few drops of lemon oil to a carrier oil and massaging it onto the chest or feet can provide a comforting and immune-boosting experience.
