Lemon Essential Oil

Citrus Limon, or, the lemon tree, is native to Southern Asia. Though the origin of the lemon is actually unknown, researchers suspect it initially came from either Northeastern India, North Burma, or China. During the times of Ancient Rome, the lemon traveled all the way to Italy, which is now famous for its various lemon products. 

Today, we use lemon for many different things including food, drinks, fragrances, and cleaning products. In aromatherapy, lemon essential oil is prized for its potential ability to combat stress and fatigue, as well as increasing mental alertness and cognitive function.

Precautions:

Your pet can’t ingest citrus oils but can you? Again, the answer is no.

While lemons themselves are a great addition to food and drinks, lemon essential oil is not. Essential oils are extremely strong. If you think of how potent the rind of one lemon is, imagine how potent the oils from multiple rinds would be! Furthermore, water and oil don’t combine well. This means that if you ingest lemon essential oil after adding it to your food or drink, it could separate in the body and cause internal burning or irritation.

Benefits and Components

  • a-Terpineol: a-Terpineol is a common additive to fragrances due to its pleasant smell, which is reminiscent of lilacs. Also, a-terpineol is known to have anti-hypertensive properties, as well as showing effect as an antiproliferative. Though more research is necessary, scientists propose a-terpineol may be effective against six different cancer cell lines. 
  • a-Pinene: Alpha-pinene shows indications of being an effective antimicrobial agent. A study looking at patients with infectious endocarditis saw positive results, and scientists recommend taking a closer look at a-pinene in terms of its use in antimicrobial therapy.
  • Geranial: Geranial has a strong citrus scent, giving lemons their zesty fragrance. Most of the lemon essential oil benefits are acquired with the help of Geranial. 
  • Limonene: Limonene comes from the rind of citrus fruits. Studies indicate it has antioxidant properties, as well as the ability to work as an anti-inflammatory agent. Limonene is a common additive in many products, including drinks, food, cleaning supplies, insect repellents, and cosmetics. 
  • b-Pinene: This constituent is a common additive in both chilled dairy products and baked goods. It also shows positive indications of being an effective antibacterial and antimicrobial agent. 
  • Gamma-Terpinene: Gamma-terpinene is also found in eucalyptus oil, and research indicates it has anti-inflammatory properties.
