Allergy to lemon oil, is that possible?

Allergy to lemon oil, is that possible?

Maybe: This has been described only once in the medical literature (in 1990). It was reported in a women who worked handling lemon peel and lemon oil for several years. The reaction she got was a skin reaction on her fingers where she handled these products. It is exceedingly rare, but it may be possible to have a lemon oil allergy.

Duck/Duct Tape: Hello please let your parents know: Duct Tape has wonderful properties at painfully but slowly removing a wart. You could have it cut out but that's much more painful. Check out the tape and let me know. Feel good

Does lemon oil cause acne?

Does lemon oil cause acne?

Acne: Acne is a skin condition that occurs when your hair follicles become plugged with oil and dead skin cells. These factors can trigger or aggravate an existing case of acne, hormones, medications, and a diet with a lot of dairy and carbohydrate-rich foods. You can also prevent new acne breakouts with self-care measures by washing your skin with a gentle cleanser and avoiding touching or picking acne.

If you have lemon juice mix with olive oil and you take it every morning what benefits or side effects it has?

If you have lemon juice mix with olive oil and you take it every morning what benefits or side effects it has?

Better to put it on: Your food or salad. The omega 3's are good in olive oil, and lemon juice in water helps alkalinize your body, but straight can damage the enamel of your teeth. So a tsp diluted in a glass of water would be okay (and safe for your teeth.)

Steam inhaler! Is it safe to add anything to the water from a "steam inhaler."was thinking maybe salt, lemon, olive oil. What would be safe? Vicks/other?

Steam inhaler! Is it safe to add anything to the water from a "steam inhaler."was thinking maybe salt, lemon, olive oil. What would be safe? Vicks/other?

Avoid that: Avoid trying to inhale household items you have found around the house. You do not need any of those things in your lungs. Vicks helps when applied to your chest or the bottom of your feet for congestion. If you are ill see your doctor.

Do any of you have opinions re holistic gallbladder "cleanses" using epsom salts, olive oil and lemon juice. What is left after all the tests?

Do any of you have opinions re holistic gallbladder "cleanses" using epsom salts, olive oil and lemon juice. What is left after all the tests?

Don't "cleanse"!: The ingredients you mentioned have no bearing on "cleansing" your gallbladder. In fact, epsom salts may harm your kidney. The gallbladder contains concentrated bile produced in the liver, & it empties in response to dietary fats. There is no physiologic way to wash out your gallbladder, so please don't waste your time and risk your health!

Is it safe to drink a mixture of lemon juice and olive oil every morning?

Is it safe to drink a mixture of lemon juice and olive oil every morning?

Safe, but why?: I don't know what good this would do, but it certainly won't be harmful, assuming no more than a couple ounces of oil and that you're not trying to control your weight. (An ounce of olive oil has about 250 calories.) If in moderation and you like the taste, feel free. If not, don't do it.

Hello doctor. I am a dark skinned lady, I am currently using coconut oil allover body and also lemon juice on my knees and elbows coz they tend to look?

Hello doctor. I am a dark skinned lady, I am currently using coconut oil allover body and also lemon juice on my knees and elbows coz they tend to look?

GOOD MOISTURIZERS: Coconut oil or for that matter any barrier cream or oil leaves a thin film of a barrier on the skin. This allows the natural oil of the skin to be trapped by the body for a longer time. This allows to lock in the moisture and reduces dryness of the skin. When the skin is dry it tends to look rough and tends to crack. So you can continue.

My mom 68 yo. Is olive oil n lemon juice for flushing the gallstone could work for her?

No: Nothing has been found to dissolve gallstones. If she doesn't have gallbladder symptoms leave the gallbladder alone. If she has symptoms, the gallbladder should be removed if she is otherwise healthy.
