Lemon (Citrus Limonum) Essential Oil
Boost your mood and freshen up your indoor spaces with lemon oil. This citrus essential oil is a workhorse and is one of the key oils for any collection. Whether you want a brighter complexion, are dealing with acne, or just enjoy the bright, happy scent, a drop or two of lemon oil can help with a variety of issues.
Our lemon essential oil is organic and comes from Italy before being hand bottled in the United States. We use dark brown bottles to help protect the oil from exposure to light and keep it pure, and the large 15 ml size is enough to last for months even with daily use.

Method of Extraction: Cold Expression
- Can cause severe sunburn if applied to the skin prior to exposure to ultraviolet light.
- It should never be used on the skin or in applications where steam may deposit it on the skin for 12 hours prior to exposure to sunlight or tanning lamps.
- Lemon Essential Oil that has been allowed to oxidize (spoil) can cause skin sensitization so we recommend that you refrigerate your Lemon Essential Oil if you plan to keep it for more than 3 months
