LEMON (10ml) - Citrus limonum -
The ancient Greeks and Romans included lemon in their medicine chest and it has a history of use in European folk medicine. Lemon can stimulate the body's defenses to fight all kinds of infection. It is beneficial in treating inflamed or diseased gums, mouth ulcers, sore throats, and acne. It helps to clear colds, flu and bronchitis, and can be used to remove warts and verrucas, and to clear herpes blisters.
The oil has a tonic effect on the circulation and is often used to treat varicose veins, poor circulation, high blood pressure, and fluid retention.
It is diuretic and laxative, and has the ability to stop bleeding in minor cuts and nosebleeds.
Because it also counteracts acidity in the body, lemon helps to relieve acid indigestion, arthritis, and rheumatism.
NOTE: Can irritate sensitive skin. Do not use before sunbathing. Dilute well for massage and bath blends. Do not use for more than a few days at a time.
The word aromatherapy means “treatment using scents”. It refers to a particular branch of herbal medicine that uses concentrated plant oils called essential oils to improve physical and emotional health, and to restore balance to the whole person.
Unlike the herbs used in herbal medicine, essential oils are not taken internally, but are inhaled or applied to the skin.
Each oil has its own natural fragrance, and a gentle healing action that makes aromatherapy one of the most pleasant and popular of all the available complementary therapies.
Essential oils are extracted from aromatic essences of certain plants, trees, fruit, flowers, herbs, and spices.
Over 150 essential oils have been extracted, each one with its own scent and unique healing properties.
The oils and their actions are extremely complex.
All the oils are antiseptic, but each one also has individual properties, for example, they may be analgesic, fungicidal, diuretic, or expectorant. The collective components of each oil also work together to give the oil a dominant characteristic. It can be relaxing, as in the case of chamomile, refreshing, or stimulating.
