Lemon Essential Oil 10 ml (1/3 oz.)
Botanical Name: Citrus x limon

Aromatic Scent: Lemon essential oil has a fresh, zesty citrus scent.
Blends well with: Bergamot, Carrot Seed, Cedarwood, Citronella, Coriander, Geranium, Lavender, Lemongrass, Lime, May Chang, Neroli, Palmarosa, Petitgrain, Sandalwood and Vetiver.
Suggested Uses: Lemon is one of the most easily recognized oils because of its refreshing, energizing and uplifting scent. It can help support a healthy immune system and is also frequently added to spray cleaners.
The thing that differentiates cold pressed Lemon from steam distilled Lemon is that steam distilled Lemon is not phototoxic. Therefore it can be used in body care products such as lotions and lip balms without having to worry about phototoxicity.
Diffuse equal amounts of Lemon and Peppermint in the morning or whenever you need an extra boost. To use for cleaning, add a few drops to your favorite cleaner to help refresh and sanitize. It is especially good added to some baking soda to make your bathroom or kitchen appliances sparkle!
Cautions: Lemon essential oil can cause photosensitivity. To avoid this we recommend a maximum dilution of 2% for topical applications.
Please Note: The International Federation of Aromatherapists does not recommend that Essential Oils be taken internally unless under the supervision of a Medical Doctor who is also qualified in clinical Aromatherapy. All cautions listed for individual oils do not include those cautions from ingestion.
