  • How we use it:
  • Inhalation / Vapourisation:
  • We love to diffuse our lemon essential oil when the weather is gloomy to uplift the spirits.
  • We also use it on its own or blended with rosemary essential oil to help us focus whilst working/studying/decision making to keep us mentally alert.

 

  • Others:

 

  • Start your day off with a refreshing morning shower – add some lemon essential oil to an unscented shower gel base. Combine with our gorgeous mandarin and/or sweet orange for a sweeter ‘happy’ aroma.

Safety considerations: Expressed Lemon essential oil is phototoxic.

Tisserand and Young recommend a dermal maximum use at 2.0% to avoid the risk of a phototoxic reaction.  If applied to the skin at over maximum use level, skin must not be exposed to sunlight or sunbed rays for 12 hours.

[Robert Tisserand and Rodney Young, Essential Oil Safety (Second Edition. United Kingdom: Churchill Livingstone Elsevier, 2014), 87, 330-331.]

 

Lemon essential oil, like all citrus peel essential oils with high content of (+)-limonene, can oxidise easily. We recommend that you store the bottle in a fridge and never use old, oxidised oil to avoid skin irritation.
