If you are new to the world of essential oils, cold pressed Lemon Oil from Pure Body Naturals is a great place to begin your experiments in creating homemade bath and body, grooming and cleaning products.
As you can imagine, this lemon oil has a perky, zesty citrus scent that can be rather intense, and it is in a concentrated formulation. Therefore this lemon oil should almost always be used in diluted form to ensure you don’t experience any adverse or allergic reactions to it (and the citrus scent does not overpower you).
You can simply mix this lemon oil with water and spritz it on your face as an antiseptic toner, or you can spritz it on your shower, sink and bathtub to help degrease, cleanse and deoderize those surfaces.
I enjoyed mixing the lemon oil and water with some plain, unscented Dead Sea salts to create a custom homemade salt scrub. The flaky Dead Sea salts have a gentle texture as compared to table salt, and the lemon scent is divine.
Pure Body Naturals notes you can add a few drops of lemon essential oil to jojoba oil to create a refreshing moisturizer. I have not tried this yet myself, but when I do, I will report the results back to you.
In general, this versatile, all natural product is a great additive to scrubs, lotions, cleaning products and more. The ample 4 ounce glass bottle will last a long time, because you usually will only need 1-3 drops of the oil at a time.
I received a free bottle of this product in exchange for an honest and unbiased review.
