An amazing cleanser and purifier, Lemon has been known to be antiviral and anti-infectious.
As a result, it is considered the #1 Essential Oil to kill bacteria.
According to Dr. Jean Valnet, when tested against other Essential Oils for airborne germs, Lemon came out as the number one disinfectant for the air. It is also very effective added to household cleaners; it imparts a fresh smell to the kitchen and bathroom while eliminating germs.
