Benefits and uses

The bright yellow rinds of the fruits of the Citrus limon tree create a magically sweet, citrusy essential oil.

This bright, refreshing essential oil can also help boost the immune system.

Emotionally and energetically, lemon essential oil brings an element of sparkle to a blend and can help lift a cloud of depression or ease emotional tension. It invites happiness and positive energy wherever it goes.

Safety & Warnings
  • 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.
