    Safety Information:

    Lemon essential oil is generally mild and well tolerated but can cause skin sensitivity in some individuals. Lemon essential oil is known to make the skin photosensitive. This means it will attract and increase the effects of sunlight and UV rays on the skin, possibly causing pigmentation. This includes natural as well as simulated sunlight, such as that used at tanning salons. If applying  citrus essential oils, such as Lemon, to the skin, use well diluted and do not expose skin to the sun for 24 hrs. following application.

    Citrus essential oils such as Lemon have a short shelf-life and should be used within 6 months.

  • Organic LEMON  'the citrus cure-all'. A brilliant, fresh, sharp and sweet scent.

    100% PURE LEMON ESSENTIAL OIL, Lemon Essential oil is one of the top essential oils to have in your aromatherapy kit due to its many beneficial properties. It has a fresh and clean scent reminiscent of sliced lemons. Its Latin name is Citrus limonum and it’s classified in the Rutaceae family.

     

    The yellow lemons grow on a tall evergreen tree that can grow up to twenty feet tall. The oil is extracted by cold pressing the lemon peel. It can take almost seventy-five lemons to press enough oil from the lemon peel to make one small 15 ml bottle of lemon essential oil. It’s believed that the lemon tree originally grew in what is now called China and the northeastern India regions. Lemons were brought to Europe in the 1500s. Lemon essential oil has been used to treat health conditions for at least the past 1000 years.

     

    Today, lemons are grown in many regions around the world, including Florida, California, and Italy. Italy is one of the more popular locations for growing the trees and creating lemon essential oil for the market. Lemon essential oil contains a high concentration of limonene, a compound found in citrus fruits. Besides its strong but pleasant citrus smell, it has many therapeutic uses in aromatherapy and healthcare.

     

    The lemon essential oil has a fresh scent that can be used to clear a room of bad smells, such as smoke, garbage, or unpleasant bathroom smells. It has natural antiseptic properties which can be directly applied to surfaces to sterilize them safely, without using harmful store-bought cleansers. It may also be used in aromatherapy for people who have bad colds or flus, to help sterilize the air in a room. When mixed with a carrier oil, it can be directly applied to the skin. It’s effective in treating acne, fungal infections, and minor cuts.

     

    Lemon essential oil has a wide range of uses in cooking, beauty, and health care. It can be used in any recipe calling for lemon juice or lemon zest, and will add a fresh lemony flavour to any dish. It can be used directly from the bottle.Lemon essential oil can also be poured into a diffuser bottle and will freshly scent a room, being particularly useful near kitchen bins or in the bathroom. Lemon essential oil works well when mixed with other essential oils, such as basil, ginger, and rosemary. If you’re making up a recipe for essential oil, ensure you store it in a glass bottle, as it can erode through plastic. Before using your lemon essential oil to heal skin conditions, you must mix it with a carrier oil such as almond, jojoba, or coconut oil. If you’re using it to clean surfaces, you may mix a few drops with about half a cup of water first. Store your lemon essential oil bottle in a dark cupboard away from heat and light.
