Lemon peel oil is a great face aid in many ways. It is very versatile and can be used not just on the skin but around the house as a cleaning agent and even as a bug repellant. It's pleasant scent and antibacterial properties make it such an easy oil to use in a whole host of ways. Included below are some of the specific ways you can use lemon peel oil and why it's fundamentally so effective.
To Freshen Hands
One of the most annoying things is when a certain smell just won't leave your hands. Whether it's the smell of the sponge you use to wash the dishes or the leftover and pungent odor of onions or garlic from handling them while cooking. It can be so taxing to get the remnants of the smell off the hands. Constant washing of the hands sometimes doesn't do the trick. It's also incredibly drying. Rub a couple of drops of lemon peel oil or even lemon rinds over your fingers and nails and the smell will be eliminated.
To Whiten Teeth
Because of the citrus components present in the rinds, lemon peel oil is a great teeth whitener. Put a drop on your toot
hbrush, with your regular toothpaste and brush your teeth as normal. In as little as a week, you will start to notice that your teeth are brighter and whiter than they've ever been. Way more affordable and safe than those toxic white strips.
A Hair Rinse
Lemon peel oil is a great oil to use in your hair. It is especially good to use on hair that needs a bit of a pick me up. Lemon peel oil will leave the hair looking healthy and shiny. It will also naturally restore the pH balance in the scalp on the hair strands themselves. Add several drops of lemon peel oil to a bit of conditioner; also put a capful of apple cider vinegar in the mixture and stir it all up. Use as a conditioning tonic after you wash your hair and you'll be amazed by the notable difference.
One of the more common uses for lemon peel oil is on the face and this is because there are so many different things it helps. Sun spots and dark spots are lightened just with a few applications. But to get the overall toning and brightening effect, you'll want to add the oil to a sugar or oatmeal scrub. Another great ingredient to try in the mask is honey. Leave it on the face for about 20 minutes every other day. In about a week, you'll notice that your skin is much brighter and downright glowing. You can also put the lemon peel oil in your daily cleanser. It's gentle enough to use on a daily basis and will help with the overall tone and state of the skin. If you struggle with blemishes, this oil will zap them out in no time.
