    Wow! I had no idea! This is really cool. With the zika virus this year the mosquito repellent alone is enough reason to stock up on lemon oil! I can’t believe it takes so many lemons to make a bottle, we may run out of lemons this year! LOL I’m going to buy ahead! xx

      There is so much you could do with lemon oil, you should run out and stock up:) My allergies have been crazy bad this year, so I have been diffusing it to see if that helps.

    Interesting facts! I haven’t heard about the allergy and hay fever benefits. I just pinned it.Thanks for partying with us on Thursdays! Hope to see you this coming Thursday again!

      I love cleaning with lemon oil. Lately I’ve been diffusing a lemon, peppermint blend for my seasonal allergies. Seems to be helping.

    I’m using lemon essential oil at home – and I love for all the great reasons you listed. I had no idea that it was a stain remover as well!

    Hi Erin! I love lemons, I love lemon water as well, I have never tried lemon essential oil though! I will now! It’s amazing how good it is, you’re right! I love the smell as well. Thank you for stopping by and linking up at Sweet Inspiration #1 today! I’m so happy you did!

      So happy to party at your place 🙂 Lemon essential oil is so much more potent than just fresh lemons, you should definitely give it a try! Have a wonderful weekend!
