What essential oil do I recommend in the diffuser this time of year?
Lemon: Citrus limon!
From the Monoterpene family and so high in limonene (71.24%) , Lemon makes an excellent deodorizer and immune system stimulant!
It boasts anti-bacterial, anti-viral, anti-depressant, and anti-inflammatory- perfect for dark days of winter!
So spread some happy sunshine in your home, lift your spirits and your immune system!
On the safety side: Citrus’ can be Phototoxic (may cause skin discoloration if exposed to UV rays, natural or artificial). Avoid sunlight for 12 hours after applying topically. May cause skin irritation, especially if the oil is past its “best by” date. Use in low dilution (1%) when applying to the skin, such as in bath or massage oils. Keep out of reach of children.

Otherwise serve up large amounts of this wonderful fruit! I drink a few mugs of hot (fresh) lemon water first thing every morning. It has cleansed my congested liver and it has kept my husband’s kidney stones completely dormant! Lemon slices in your water, lemon in your honey, and lemon essential oil in your diffuser for a healthy happy Holiday season!
