Today we are going to go over one of THE MOST useful oils that comes in the Young Living Premium Starter Kit! None other than 100% Pure Therapeutic-Grade Lemon Essential Oil. This might sound odd, but wait until you hear what can be done with this magical oil.
Seriously, there are so many uses for this little bottle of magic that the list just goes on and on—from eliminating odors and infusing your whole home with a clean fresh smell to using it for skin and hair!
It is cold-pressed from the rinds of lemons, which gives it the aroma and all the brightness of a fresh lemon. But it benefits your skin and hair as much as your environment.
Grab yourself a piece of paper because I’m pretty sure you will want to take a note or two…
