Note: Not all essential oil brands are the same, and you get what you pay for. If you expect to achieve results similar to those described in this testimonial, then ensure that you are using oils from pesticide-free plants. Also, the brand should use 100% pure, high-quality essential oils that do not contain any synthetic additives. Do your own research or ask a trusted friend to find a brand that is reputable. Buyer beware.


I am a 72 year old lady and have found an excellent use for Lemon essential oil. Usually, a couple of times a month I have small whiteheads appear just under the surface of my face. By putting a drop of Lemon oil full stength on the areas once or twice a day using a Qtip - I find that they have almost totally disappeared within 7 days of doing this.

It also works on other small blemishes on the face and has such a pleasant refreshing odor at the same time.
