Citrus limonum / Lemon Essential Oil
Lemon, or Citrus limonum, is a flowering plant that belongs to the Rutaceae family. It is made by cold-pressing the lemon peel (not the inner fruit.)
Lemon essential oil is composed of many natural compounds, including terpenes, sesquiterpenes, aldehydes, alcohols, esters and sterols.
Lemons and lemon oil are popular due to their refreshing scent and invigorating, purifying and cleaning properties.
This uplifting and fruity oil is expressed from the rind of the fruit and has a fresh, zesty aroma.
Often blended with:
Lavender, Rose, Sandalwood, Peppermint, Geranium, or Tea Tree oil.
