Lemon essential oil is cold pressed from the peel of the lemon fruit, Citrus limon. Our organically crafted lemon oil comes from Italy and is a beautiful bright yellow color. Smelling this oil will have you wondering if you are actually standing in a grove surrounded by the most aromatic lemons imaginable!
Aromatherapists consider lemon essential oil to be cooling and drying, and this is why it is often a favorite when one is looking for a detoxifying oil. This essential oil can be an asset when looking to help support a healthy circulatory system. Try adding to blends for spider veins and broken capillaries. This essential oil is great for supporting healthy immune health. Lemon is highly regarded for its ability to support healthy tissue fluids and help clear the mind, especially when there is a lot going on.
When traveling we like to make a blend of lemon, cypress, and juniper berry.
Lemon is a wonderful germ buster and we love to use in our household cleaning products! It is an excellent degreaser!

Phototoxic (when used in a blend at more than 12 drops per 1 ounce/30 ml). Otherwise non-toxic, though it may cause skin irritation. Use in low dilution (1-2%) when applying to the skin, such as in bath or massage oils. Older, oxidized oils increase the potential for skin irritation. It's best to buy citrus oils from organically-grown fruit, as citrus trees are heavily sprayed. The citrus oils are cold-pressed, and the pesticides come through the process and are found in the oils.
The suggested shelf life is 2 years.
