A quick Internet search for "Lemon Essential Oil" will yield thousands upon thousands of results detailing the many uses and health benefits of this must-have essential oil. Lemon essential oil is so versatile, in fact, that finding ways to integrate it into your daily routine is incredibly easy.
Several days ago, I received a bottle of Scential Health's Lemon Essential Oil for review. Prior to receiving the oil, I read up about it's many benefits and was anxious to try it for myself!

If you haven't read my previous reviews on their Frankincense Oil and Grapefruit Oil, feel free to check those out!


Scential Health Lemon Essential Oil, as with all of their EOs, comes in a glass, amber-colored 15mL bottle—this is to protect the essential oil from sun and/or light damage. As mentioned in my previous reviews, the label, to me, reflects simplicity.


At the time of this blog post, Scential Health Lemon Essential Oil is on sale for $7.95. Of course, the sale price is subject to change, but this lemon essential oil is affordable even at it's actual retail price of $12.95.

The lemon essential oil contains a Euro-style dropper cap that dispenses oil easily with a light squeeze. The cap is sealed, to maintain freshness.


My first impression of the lemon essential oil was positive. I love the citrus scent, but it also has a sharp freshness to it that you would have to smell to understand. It smells like lemons, although stronger, in my opinion.

I like to add a few drops of Scential Health Lemon Essential Oil to my humidifier to enjoy the aroma-therapeutic benefits. It leaves my home smelling fresh and clean, and I feel that it truly does uplift my mood—much like the grapefruit oil does.
