This week, we’re continuing our blogging series focusing on the incredible and all-natural ingredients inside our oil pulling system. we’ve already told you about chamomile essential oil and peppermint essential oil and this week we’re taking a look at another killer ingredient in Keeko Oil, lemon essential oil!
Lemon Essential Oil
Cold pressed from the peel of lemons, lemon essential oil is a thin, greenish-yellow essential oil with a bright and refreshing scent. The powerful healing benefits of lemon essential oil were first discovered by the Greeks and Romans in the middle ages. The Greeks and Romans used lemon essential oil primarily as a cleanser for their skin and around their homes. Later, the British Navy harnessed the power of lemon essential oil to stave off the nasty effects of scurvy.
Lemon essential oil also has powerful, almost magical properties when it comes to whitening your teeth. We’ve included this fabulous oil in our Keeko Oil products to amp up the results you’ll see when you try oil pulling. Lemon essential oil is naturally rich in limonene which is a powerful antiseptic that stops the spread of bacteria. In your mouth, limonene guards against nasty bacteria and prevents stains or cavities from developing. Lemon essential oil also prevents plaque from building up along your gum line and helps prevent gum disease in this way.
An added bonus of using an oil pulling system like Keeko Oil that utilizes the power of lemon essential oil is that it’s also really good for your skin! If you struggle with oily and acne prone skin, swishing with Keeko Oil can help thanks to the lemon essential oil that we use in our oil pulling system.
Lemon essential oil has also been shown to increase focus and concentration, keep salads and sliced fruit from turning an unappetizing brown colour, boost your immune system, create natural looking highlights in your hair as well as helping to cleanse and detoxify your body.
