With properties commonly known for cleansing and purifying, Lemon essential oil can be used in the household for many reasons. Add a few drops in warm water for cleaning countertops and floors and even removing tarnishes of silver or copper jewelry and utensils. Lemon also is a wonderful astringent for the skin and can treat acne.
Little Known Facts: Lemon trees usually mature and produce fruit after 3 years. Lemon essential oil is photosensitive, which means it absorbs, then enhances the energy of UV rays. Photosensitizing oils applied to the skin without proper dilution and exposed to sunlight or UV rays within 12hours, will cause the skin to burn faster and deeper. Therefore, it is always safe to avoid sun exposure for at least 12 hours after applying Lemon essential oil to the skin.
