Lemon Essential Oil, Citrus limonium, is cold pressed from the peels of the fruit. It possesses a fresh, uplifting, lemony aroma. It is a pleasant and functional addition to cleaning formulations and air fresheners. Lemon Essential Oil helps to clean and cut grease while imparting a pleasant citrus aroma.
Within hair and skin care applications, the astringency of Lemon Essential Oil makes it useful for combating oily skin and hair. Within holistic aromatherapy, the bright, citrus scent is stimulating, but it also is said to aid in focus and concentration. Lemon Essential Oil is often used by spas and incorporated into body massage oils, body wraps and salt soaks.
Our Lemon Essential Oil is naturally comprised of approximately 65% limonene, a monoterpene that is highly praised for its many beneficial properties and that contributes to the fresh, bright uplifting aroma of the oil.
Aromatically, Lemon Essential Oil is very versatile and blends well with other citrus essential oils and oils in the mint, floral, wood, herbaceous and spice families.
Citrus oils may become cloudy when subjected to cold temperatures due to the natural citrus wax present in the oil.
