ARGENTINA. Lemon (Citrus limon) Essential Oil, Cold Pressed, Organic
Lemon essential oil carries the unmistakable fragrance of fresh lemon peel! For blending purposes it is considered a top note. It is valued as an energizing, uplifting scent, and helpful for masking ambient odors such as cigarette smoke.
Lemon essential oil is useful for regulating the digestive system, relieving nausea and morning sickness. Like Grapefruit essential oil, it is often included in blends to facilitate weight loss, supporting metabolism and lymphatic cleansing. Its powerful antioxidant, antimicrobial, and immunomodulatory effects make it popular for treating many skin conditions, as well as colds and coughs.
Our essential oils are sold in amber glass bottles with a dropper orifice for drop-by-drop administration. Do not ingest essential oils unless under the guidance of a licensed health care practitioner or experienced aromatherapist. Essential oils should always be diluted in a carrier oil before being applied to the skin. (Some examples of carrier oils: Jojoba
, Rosehip Seed
, and Avocado
; gently liquified Coconut Oil
, or Cocoa Butter
can also work for creating thicker body care products.) Always test the diluted essential oil on a small patch of skin before applying more widely.
Maximum recommended dilution for adults topical use: 2% (two drops per teaspoon of carrier oil). Like other essential oils derived from citrus fruits, Lemon has a relatively short shelf life and is best stored in your fridge.
