5 Amazing Benefits of Lemon Oil in Foaming Hand Soap

The lemon tree is native to Asia, but are now grown all over the world. The lemons were used by ancient Indians, as well as Egyptians and Romans, to treat infectious diseases. The oil is extracted from the flower by a steam distillation process.

We use Lemon oil in our Lemon Foaming Hand Soap. It has a sweet, refreshing scent and provides a burst of energy.

There are many benefits of using lemon oil and that’s why it is one of our favourites to use it in our soap.

  1. Anti-microbial

Lemon oil may possibly have the most powerful anti-microbial properties of any of the essential oils. 

  1. Nourish Skin

Lemon oil is an astringent and has detoxifying properties. This rejuvenates tired, dull skin. The antiseptic properties help with nourishing skin irritation, including acne, eczema, and itchy skin. Lemon oil also reduces excess oil on the skin.

This makes it a great oil to include in your daily routine as a foaming hand soap. We recommend the It’s Just Soap Lemon natural foaming hand soap.

  1. Relieve Mental Exhaustion

Lemon oil has been known to improve cognitive function and concentration. This makes it a great pick-me-pick during your busy day.

  1. Cough and Cold Relief

If you have a cough or are feeling congested, lemon oil can help provide some temporary relief. 

  1. Relieve Stress

    Lemon oil has the ability to refresh the mind and help create a positive mindset. It is calming by nature and therefore helps relieve nervous tension and stress.

    A study in 2006 concluded that lemon oil had anti-anxiety and antidepressant effects.

    All the benefits can be found in our Lemon Foaming Hand Soap. But don’t take our word for it, try it yourself and let us know in the comments below.
