It is also a popular ingredient in facial toners and home cleaners due to its powerful hygienic properties and its ability to attack harmful microorganisms. When diluted and applied to the skin, it may also effectively boost the lymphatic system.

Our 100% Pure Lemon (Steam Distilled) Essential Oil has a sharp, fruity scent and is pale yellow in colour. Unlike some citrus oils, our steam distilled lemon oil has no phototoxic qualities, as the process of extracting the oil from the peel of the lemon via steam distillation gets rid of furocoumarins. This means that when the oil is properly diluted it should not cause irritation to the skin.
Botanical Name: Citrus Limonum

How to use lemon essential oil
Lemon oil is versatile and easy to use. For aromatherapy, add a few drops to a diffuser to fill your space with a refreshing, citrusy aroma.
In homemade skin care and cleaning products, use it sparingly, as it's potent.
When applied topically, it must always be diluted with a carrier oil to prevent skin irritation. Conduct a patch test first to check for any adverse reactions.
In cooking, only use food-grade lemon oil and add very sparingly to dishes for a zesty flavour.
How to use lemon essential oils with a diffuser
To use lemon essential oil in a diffuser, fill the diffuser with water up to the recommended line, then add 3-5 drops of the oil.
You can adjust the number of drops based on your scent preference and the size of the room. Switch on the diffuser and enjoy the invigorating, citrusy aroma.
Remember to clean your diffuser regularly to prevent oil buildup and maintain its effectiveness.
Also, be aware that citrus oils like lemon can be phototoxic, so avoid direct sunlight or UV light for several hours after diffusing.
How to add lemon essential oil to a bath
To use lemon essential oil in a bath, mix 5-10 drops of the oil with a carrier oil or a cup of full-fat milk to help it disperse evenly in the water. Pour this mixture into your running bath.
Stir the water to ensure even distribution of the oil. Soak and relax, enjoying the refreshing, citrusy aroma.
Be aware that lemon oil can make skin more sensitive to sunlight, so avoid direct sun exposure for several hours after your bath.

Lemon essential oil offers several benefits. Its invigorating, citrusy aroma can enhance mood and provide a refreshing environment when diffused. Some people find it helpful in boosting focus and concentration.
