Lemon Essential Oil – Acne Treatment with Essential Oils
Most of us know someone who has fought the battle of acne. Either as a teenager, or girls as that time of the month comes around. Even though there is not a cure and it is a on going problem through several stages in life.
Essential Oils can and do help!
There are many essential oils that can help in the treatment and prevention of acne blemishes. Those include tea tree, lavender, geranium and lemon oils. Use these separately or together, as ingredients in skin tonics, steam treatments or blemish lotions. Essential oils can help acne blemishes clear up faster and not become infected, which can increase scarring. Here are some ways to use essential oils for acne.
Lemon has antiseptic-like properties and contains compounds that have been studied for their effects on immune function. According Jean Valnet, M.D., the vaporized essence of lemon can kill meningococcus bacteria in 15 minutes, typhoid bacilli in one hour, Staphylococcus aureus in two hours, and Pneumococcus bacteria within three hours. Even a 0.2% solution of lemon oil can kill diphtheria bacteria in 20 minutes and inactivate tuberculosis bacteria. Lemon oil has been widely used in skin care to cleanse skin and reduce wrinkles. It promotes clarity of thought and purpose, as well as health, healing, physical energy, and purification. Its fragrance is invigorating, enhancing, and warming. Lemon has been shown to have antidepressant effects in research done by Komori, et al.,1995. It may also help brighten a pale, dull complexion by removing the dead skin cells. It serves as an effective insect repellent and works well in removing gum, wood stain, oil, and grease spots.

A Super Happy Teenager:
My 15 year old son who loves to eat – and he loves to eat lots chocolates – came to me with his face broke out in a mess. He said “Mom look in your oil book and see what I can use on my face”. He tried Lemon Oil. He rubbed it straight onto his skin with out any diluting and woke up the next morning with most of the blemishes gone! After two days he has clear skin. Needless to say he keeps that oil in his bathroom now.
*I had to smile when he was packing for a baseball tournament in Disney with his oil in his hand and ask if he could take that with him just in case. It is non expensive and the results are fast.
* When I read Angela’s story I figured the Lemon Essential Oil was worth a try. I whipped out my Lemon Essential Oil and applied it directly to the red, puffy areas of my face and neck, where I always break out during that ‘certain time of the month’. When I got up the next morning I almost forgot about my face because it felt so much better–the redness was almost completely gone and my face didn’t ache! Today–two days later with just two applications of the Lemon Essential Oil my acne breakout is completely eradicated! Needless to say I am a very happy customer! ~Elise Adams
* I have to say thanks for the recommendation for using lemon oil on acne. I’ve been putting it on for 2 nights now and I’ve noticed that not only is the redness going away but my skin feels softer too. It seems as good as a microdermabrasion treatment but way cheaper ~Jennifer Rosbrugh~
