cleanse your home and keep the family healthy. You'll want to
stock up on this inexpensive prep.

Lemons themselves are antioxidant powerhouses! Well known as
an anti-bacterial and cleanser for de-greasing, deodorizing, and
disinfecting household cleansers, you'll find many uses for lemon,
but you may not always have access to lemons. That's when
you'll want to reach for a bottle of lemon essential oil. Keep some
in the kitchen and the medicine cabinet and here's how and why
you'll use lemon essential oil in prepping...

How to use Lemon Essential oil in prepping

#1: Lemon oil is an antifungal.
Lemon essential oil is an antifungal and you'll want to keep some
around in your essential oil "family doctor" kit to treat candida
and more.

According to an abstract published by the U.S. National Library of
Medicine National Institutes of Health, "
Several essential oils,
including eucalyptus, pine, cinnamon and lemon, have been
shown to be effective against Candida strain."

  • Treat candida. Described as "opportunistic fungi," candida
    can cause a number of health concerns, including cancer. If
    you are concerned about candida, see your physician, but
    also learn how to treat candida naturally using lemon
    essential oil,. Consult thecandida diet.com Web site, which
    has ideas on how to use lemon essential oils in skin
    absorption, inhalation and ingestion.

  • Nail fungus. A few drops of lemon essential oils at bedtime
    will help a nail fungal infection, but it won't happen
    overnight. Be patient! Other effective oils for nail fungus are
    lavender essential oil and more popularly tea tree oil.

#2: Lemon oil is an antiseptic.
Refreshing, lemon essential can have cooling properties. On skin
and hair it can be used for its cleansing effect, as well as for
treating cuts and boils. Although lemon isn't what most people
will grab when they have a cut. That's because it's highly potent.

Be sure to dilute lemon essential oil before using on sensitive
areas such as your face or neck. Pure lemon oil is highly
concentrated, which means you should dilute it with a
carrier oil
such as jojoba, fractionated coconut oil, grapeseed or almond oil.

  • Acne.  Lemon essential oil is both an antibiotic and
    antiseptic. Nourish your skin, energize and cleanse it with
    lemon essential oil.Put three drops of lemon essential oil on
    a cotton ball and apply to clean, dry skin of acne affected
    areas. The bonus is that lemon essential oil is a skin
    brightener.


  • Cuts. For cuts, remember to dilute the intensity of lemon
    essential oil.

  • Scars. Lemon essential oil also can minimize the appearance
    of scar tissue. As with acne, add a few drops to a cotton ball
    and apply directly to the scar tissue. Results won't be
    immediate, but do it daily and you will see results. Combine
    with lavender essential oil for even better results. Lavender
    essential oil is another good go-to essential oil for scarring.

  • Hair. Lemon Essential Oil has been used as a beauty aid
    since antiquity. It's used not only for clarifying the skin, but
    also for cleansing hair. Add a few drops of lemon essential
    oil with lavender essential oil to your comb or brush.

#3: Lemon oil is an antiviral.
Lemon essential oil is a known antiviral.  Lemon Essential Oil can
help treat infectious diseases. Lemon essential oil is especially
important for treatment of colds and fevers. Lemon oils boost the
immune system by stimulating production of white and red blood
cells.

  • Lemon essential oil was a staple on 17th century Royal Navy
    ships to help prevent scurvy.

  • Some hospitals today use lemon oil to help calm frightened
    or depressed patients.

Egyptians prized lemon essential oil as an antidote to fish and
meat poisoning

  • How to use lemon essential oil as an antiviral: The best
    way to use lemon essential oil as an antiviral is to diffuse it,
    but you can also use lemon essential oil "neat" without the
    use of a carrier oil and massage directly into the skin. As
    there are skin sensitivities, this method isn't for everyone.

#4: Lemon oil helps as a cleansing agent.
Lemon essential oil can help you clean in a variety of ways.

  • Air freshener. Use in air freshener or diffuse lemon oil to
    clear cigarette smoke and other unpleasant aroma. Diffusing
    lemon essential oil in the air can also help lift mood. Lemon
    essential oil is a great beginning oil to use in a diffuser to
    give your home a natural and clean smell. If you don't have a
    diffuser yet, you can use a spray bottle with distilled water.

  • All purpose cleaner. Many people combine vinegar with
    lemon juice to create a cleaner. If you're out of lemons, try
    15-20 drops lemon essential oil with a cup of vinegar and
    use it in your spray bottle. Not only will this effectively cut
    through grease, it's all natural and non toxic. You'll remove
    mildew, too.

  • Cleans cutting boards. One natural way to clean cutting
    boards is with baking soda and a half a lemon. If you're
    short on lemons, us a scrub brush with baking soda and
    ample drops of lemon essential oil.

  • Crayon removal. If you have a waxy crayon mess on the
    walls, thanks to the kiddos, you can douse a cotton ball with
    lemon essential oil and rub the area to lift the waxy residue.
    This is not exactly a lifesaving prepper skill, but if you can
    save money on new paint, you'll have more money for your
    preps!

  • Disinfectant. Lemon oil is a natural disinfectant.

  • Dishwasher. Add a few drops of lemon essential oil to your
    dishwasher rinse cycle and you'll notice your dishes have a
    fresh scent. You can also rotate the experience and use
    sweet orange essential oil. With either you'll have spot-free
    dishes.

  • Laundry. As you might expect us to say, lemon essential oil
    has a laundry list of benefits, including helping you with the
    laundry! Try home made dryer sheets.



#5: Lemon Oil helps improve concentration.
Lemon Essential Oil enhances the ability to concentrate. Here's
the scientific abstract that shows lemon essential oil  "
increased
heart rate and enhanced mental and physical task performance in
human studies."
