Lemon oil
I recently came down with a super bad sore throat. The pain, nastiness and lack of sleep pushed me to raid a friend’s medicine cabinet. To my shock, not a single cough suppression drug. Then, the lemon oil caught my eye. I know the power of essential oils, unfortunately I had to refresh my mind. Many sites have the same content so I failed to site all my research. But here are notes I took for myself while researching lemon oil.

Essential oils are a wonder gift to us all and I hope you stay tuned for more oils I research.

Lemon oil spiritual use

Cleansing, clearing, purifying. Lemon is a great essential oil to use in any spell or incantation where you want to get rid of something. Put a few drops of lemon essential oil in water and bathe anything that you want cleansed of negativity, especially jewelry, crystals or other magical objects. Bathing in a bath of lemon essential oil will purify the body of unwanted vibrations. Lemon is believed to encourage fidelity, so a few drops in the washing machine will not only cleanse undesirable energy, but will keep your loved one close to home and get rid of the wandering eye.

Stay tuned for more oil researching. 🙂
