Lemon oil is one of several essential oils that can kill harmful bacteria that can grow on your skin.
In a recent study lemon essential oil was shown to be effective against strains of bacteria like Staphylococcus aureus and E. coli. This makes a good choice for topically cleaning small wounds.
Other research has confirmed lemon essential oil’s effect against infection-causing bacteria and may prevent skin inflammation, including a laboratory study conducted in 2017 and in vitro and in vivo research in 2018.
It also has protective properties, such as antioxidants, that may brighten and preserve your skin tone. It can be used for a variety of skin conditions, including acne. When diluted with a carrier oil and applied topically lemon essential oil can kill bacteria trapped in the pores which cause breakouts. It also helps breakouts heal faster. Always check with a doctor before using an essential oil, and don’t substitute an essential oil for a prescribed treatment.
