Our lemon essential oil is cold pressed from the fresh fruit peel of the bright yellow Citrus lemon which is growing in Turkey. We need 60-70 kg to receive 1 kg of essential oil.

Lemon oil has long been respected for its ability to “lift the spirits”.

Benefits

Lemon oil has the ability to lift the spirits and is recommended for stress-related fatigue. Lemon oil is also good for oily skin and acne.

It can be useful for treating colds and flu and for stopping the spread of infection. Its detoxifying properties are useful in lymphatic drainage massage, and its ability to balance acidity makes it beneficial for problems such as rheumatism, arthritis, gout and digestive acidity. It can also stimulate and strengthen the circulatory system and can be useful in treating varicose veins.

Tips

Studies on Lemon oil in Japan have shown it to have a remarkable ability to increase concentration and is a good oil to use before and during exams to stimulate the left side of the brain which controls logic and analytical reasoning.

Safety

Lemon is a photosensitive oil which means exposure to sunlight should be avoided when using it, particularly in the first few hours after use. Avoid in massage blends if the skin is over sensitive. Use a maximum of 3 drops in aromatherapy baths. Lemon can have a temporary bleaching effect on some skins (spot test if in doubt).
