Uses of Lemon Oil Infusion



How To Use Your Lemon Oil Infusion

Skin Brightening Scrub

The alpha-hydroxy acids contained in lemon peels possess astringent and skin brightening qualities, making it a great base for this scrub!

When deciding whether to use unrefined sea salt or epsom salt for this recipe keep in mind that both are fabulous detoxifers with unique benefits. Sea salt infuses trace minerals, helps restore moisture balance in the skin, and possesses potent anti-microbial qualities that have been found helpful for acne.

Epsom salts, on the other hand, mostly contain magnesium, a mineral which it thought to improve sleep quality, prevent morning sickness in many cases, and is often used to treat migraines and depression. Use whichever you happen to have on hand, or mix them together!

Note: If you have acne be very careful not to tear the skin while gently using this scrub!

Ingredients:

2/3 cup unrefined sea salt or epsom salt/magnesium flakes, finely ground
1/3 cup your lemon-infused oil
A few drops of essential oil if desired
Method:

If you’re using coarse ground sea salt or epsom salt, run it through a food processor or coffee maker until the granules are very fine (you don’t want to tear delicate skin).
Mix all ingredients in a clean jar and store in a cool, dry place.
To Use:

Step into the bath or shower, but before you turn the shower on spoon a little of the mixture onto a washcloth, exfoliating mitt or your hands.
Scrub all over in a circular motion, then rinse!
Pat skin dry and follow with moisturizer if desired.


As A Furniture Polish

Want to restore lustre to wood furniture? It’s easy! Just dab lemon oil on a cloth, rub on, and buff with a clean cloth! (Note: This polish may not be suitable for every type of wood finish. Do a test spot in an obscure area before applying.
