Lemon is a superpowered mega star, it does it all!!!!
I just recently got into lemon oil as a quick beverage addition to help transform my water into a detox. I have used fresh lemons in the past, but a drop of lemon oil is WAY more effective and easy to transport in my purse. It also work to purify the air and uplift the passengers in your car, without using toxic chemicals.
I also used it at the start of a sore throat, added a drop to a little hot water and honey...sooooo goooood.
Here's what else it does:
Stomach illnesses: Lemon oil is carminative, it works to support various stomach problems, including indigestion, acidity, upset stomach, and cramps. Add three drops of lemon oil to water to help reduce heartburn and acid indigestion.
Insect Repellent: Mix lemon oil with Peppermint and Eucalyptus to repel ants and other insects.
Lemon oil is high vitamin content, which makes it incredible for the body’s immune system. It further stimulates white blood cells, thus increasing your ability to fight off diseases. Lemon oil also improves circulation throughout the body.
Fever: Lemon oil is effective against infectious diseases such as fever, malaria, and typhoid. Add one drop of lemon and peppermint oil to the bottoms of your feet to reduce fever and provide infection relief. Combine with Thieves essential oil for additional support.
Lemon oil is also a powerful hair refresher. Many people use lemon oil to get strong, healthy and shiny hair. Lemon oil can also be used to eliminate dandruff.
Nail Rescue: apply lemon oil to your nails to soften cuticles and restore health to your nails.
Asthma/Allergy: inhaling the aroma of lemons can clear the nasal passages and sinuses, promoting good air flow and steady breathing. Allergy Bomb: Combine 3 drops of Lemon, Lavender and Peppermint Oil to the bottoms of feet, behind the ears and neck every day.
Apply lemon essential oil consistently to your hardened skin conditions, and the lemon oil will soften those areas.
Gum, label and crayon remover: Lemon oil is great for removing gum from hair, or carpet. Remove sticky residue from labels on bottles and jars. Lemon oil will also remove crayon marks from walls.
Skin Care: Lemon oil is astringent and detoxifying in nature, and its antiseptic properties help in treating pimples and various skin disorders. Lemon also reduces excessive oil on the skin.
Skin Brightener: Add lemon oil to your facial cleanser to help remove dead skin cells and create a fresh clear complexion.
and...I LOVE the smell of lemons.

I want to make I start with this: Melaleuca is another name for Tea Tree, just in case there was any confusion. :) Don't second guess yourself, some call it Tea Tree here in Canada. Just like we call a winter hat a toque, it is a still a hat and tea tree is still Malaleuca. ( Tea tree is easier to spell for those linguistically challenged folk like myself )
Over 20 years ago I was introduced to tea tree oil when I worked for The Body Shop Canada. I had teenage acne and I found that the oil worked wonders on my pimples, so I used lots of it and continue to use it for the occasional hormonal imbalance. Now that my children are becoming teenagers I am thankful to be able to share this quick remedy with them for their pimples: Q tip - Tea Tree - Zit.
Since joining Doterra as a wellness advocate I have discovered that Tea Tree also has other uses:

My son had his heart broken today. He was in full grief mode; he wanted to beat on his younger brother, deny his feelings, and run away from everything. I gave him his space to process his emotions, he needed some quiet alone time. He didn't need to run away, he needed to be alone but know he was supported.
I came to his room after a while to see if he needed anything. He needed to release and talk, to work through his feelings and know it was ok to feel how he felt. And then he asked me for a diffuser blend to help him through this process. So I made him a magical one with strong intentions: Mending a Broken Heart.
Take care of your heart, and Breathe.
