30 Ways to Use Lemon Essential Oil

  • Laundry Detergent Add-On: Lemon essential oil removes any and all odor when you forget to switch your washed laundry into the dryer.
  • Disinfect It All: Put lemon oil and water in a glass spray bottle and kill anything living on your kitchen table, your countertops, doorknobs, you name it.
  • Natural Bathroom Cleaner: When you clean your bathroom, do you get a migraine from the fumes? Break free and use lemon oil instead to get rid of the hard water buildup!
  • Leather Conditioner: Whether it’s your couch or your boots, all leather needs to be conditioned. Use a little lemon oil on a soft cloth to preserve and nourish them.
  • Tarnish Remover: Use that same cloth with more lemon oil to remove tarnish on silver or other metals– earrings, necklaces, silverware.
  • Stickers Be Gone: Lemon oil can help remove gum from a kiddo’s hair, temporary tattoos from a kiddo’s skin, or the remainder of the price tags on a picture frame.
  • Furniture Rejuvenator: Using a few drops of lemon oil mixed with olive oil on your wooden table, wooden chairs, or especially antique dressers, you can make them shine again. You may need a few coats if it’s been a while (or ever) until it’s soaked into the wood and moisturized it sufficiently.
  • Fingerprints Off Stainless: Get those grubby handprints off your stainless steel fridge with a little lemon oil!
  • Granite Countertop Cleaner: Lemon oil cleans deeper than other cleaners, which means it gets down into your stone countertops and kills the germs deep down where they hide. Plus, it leaves your kitchen smelling like REAL lemony-fresh!
  • Enhance your Toothbrush: Add a drop each of lemon and peppermint essential oils to the head of your toothbrush before you brush your teeth for an energizing start to your day.
  • Odor Neutralizer: Diffuse or spray lemon oil to neutralize odors at their source– smelly soccer shoes, potty training, that milk cup under the seat of your car, all taken care of with lemon oil!
  • Scuffs Be Gone: Lemon oil lifts scuff marks with ease!
  • No More Musk: Chase away the damp smell from anything in the back of your closet with a quick spritz of lemon oil.
  • Bacteria Beware: The taste of under-the-sink chemicals is hardly to be desired, but lemon oil makes everything fresher and tastier. Use it instead!
  • Your Garden Companion: Using pesticides on your tomato plants is not the safest choice, but lemon or peppermint oils sprayed on will kill aphids and their larvae on contact, while leaving your plants ready to eat!
  • Spot-Free Dishes: Rather than rinse agent, add a few drops of lemon oil to your dishwasher soap container for spot-free dishes.
  • Laundry Detergent Add-On: Add lemon oil to your detergent, soak overnight, wash, and dry your kitchen towels for a fresher-smelling kitchen.
  • Energy Pick-Me-Up: For a quick energy boost, add a couple of drops each of lemon oil and peppermint oil to a glass of water.
  • Enhance Your Sweet Treats: Lemon frosting, lemon pie, lemon cakes, lemon glaze, lemon squares, lemon marshmallows, lemon cookies… They’re all delicious!

  • Comfort Your Breathing: When diffused, it’s a perfect way to slow colds, coughing, or other upper respiratory issues.
