Does lemon smell like summer to you? Our lemon essential oil is one of the top three never to be without. Cold pressed to preserve its delicacy and potency from the lemon rinds of Italy, this powerhouse of an oil has a myriad of uses and benefits. You can take it internally, apply topically, and also diffuse, citrus limon covers many needs. It is known as an anticancer, antidepressant, antiseptic, antifungal, antioxidant, antiviral, astringent, invigorating, refreshing, and tonifying oil.
As well, it helps in the formation of white and red blood cells, leukocyte formation (immune system warrior cells), is helpful in treating anemia, asthma, colds, fever, gout, heartburn, intestinal parasites, rheumatism, sore throats and infections, ureter infections, varicose veins, anxiety; is blood pressure regulating, helps ease and clear up cold sores, dissolves cellulite (!), good for debility, digestive problems, energy enhancer; helps alleviate gallstones, is liver and lymphatic system cleansing; beneficial for nervous conditions, respiratory problems, muscular aches and pains, memory improvement… to name but a few of the mighty lemon’s attributes!
It is a general mood enhancing and uplifting oil, is great for cleansing hair, strengthening and hardening nails, and spot removal: chewing gum, oil and grease spots, stuck-on-stuff in cooking pots. You can apply it neat topically, but be careful with direct sun exposure for several hours if you do so.

This post is from my Bird’s Eye View blog, where I share a few of my own experiences using these amazing oils, as well as let people know about the Spring Sign Up Promo, which you can find more about here. A testimonial page is coming soon to this site, but in the meantime here are some of my own!
I’ve been taking the Lifelong Wellness Trio of supplements since last August and have managed to balance out my hormones, improve my level of immunity and energy, and ‘cure’ a bum knee that has been giving me trouble for years. I applied the frankincense to a mole that started to grow and change color and within 10 days it was gone. No trace of it. I use geranium oil on my face daily with coconut oil or avocado oil and my skin does not look like it lives in the high desert…

What is this amazing photograph? On the left, a picture of mint leaves. On the right, a magnification of the actual oil sacs (white) on the leaf. A Certified Pure Therapeutic-Grade (CPTG) essential oil of peppermint is a mighty thing!
With over 50 chemical constituents in its arsenal of properties it is used for a whole host of maladies and discomforts including: headache, digestion, circulation, pain relief, fever, allergies, and congestion. And it is absolutely essential for calming hives and edema—severe inflammation of the tissues—as I recently found out when I was covered in them. It is a life saver when the hives and inflammation are covering your neck, threatening to cut off your ability to breathe, as was a recent experience of mine.
One drop in the palm of my hands, soothed onto my neck and windpipe, already covered in a soft carrier oil (coconut, avocado, or emu oil; the best for inflammation) provided relief within 20 minutes.
Factoid: 1 drop of doTerra’s peppermint essential oil is equivalent to 28 cups of peppermint tea. No lie. doTerra’s is sourced from Washington State (just think how cool and soothing it is there) and is the purest I’ve ever used. The oil is steam-distilled from the leaves, stems and flower buds. You can use it topically, take 1-3 drops in a gel capsule, diffuse into the air, or put one drop in a pitcher of water and drink.

Do you suffer from seasonal allergies? If so, this little kit could be a life saver. It contains one 5 ml bottle each of highest quality lavender, lemon, and peppermint. These are the top three oils you never want to be without for anything.
The lemon is from Italy, the lavender from Provence, France, and the peppermint from Washington State. I guarantee they are the purest essential oils you’ve ever experienced. What’s more, they are CPTG, which means Certified Pure Therapeutic Grade. Which means, yes, they may be ingested.
Take 3 drops of each (less if you are extremely sensitive) in a gel capsule with a full glass of filtered water, and within half an hour or less your itchy, watery eyes, congestion, or runny nose will be minimized, if not gone.
I tried this last year after suffering for two months and I was amazed at the results. I am never without these three oils, and I’m using them again this year to combat the invasive juniper pollen we have in northern New Mexico.
You can buy this Intro Kit (item #3218) for $26.67 + tax and shipping by clicking here. Read the directions below first before clicking!
Go to: •Shop for Products
•Choose your country and Begin Shopping
•Click on Product Packages, then scroll down until you see the box and Item #3218.
The peppermint is excellent for cooling, but be careful, one drop equals 28 cups of peppermint tea, and essential oils are 70x more potent than dried herbs. Really! The lavender is the most useful oil to have and combats stress to bee stings. Take the lemon with you and put in your water at restaurants, use to oil furniture, spot stains, ingest and use topically to increase your antioxidant levels (citrus oils are great for this). The inside of the box gives lots of usage tips for these three oils, and there is an introductory audio CD as well.
* Extensive studies have shown that allergies are directly related to the digestive system. Eliminating gluten, corn, sugar, alcohol, and dairy from your diet will very likely lessen the affects of season allergies. Replacing these foods with lots of leafy greens, fresh lemon juice, and excellent quality olive oil will greatly help you. Your liver will especially appreciate it!
