Tart, tangy true lemon aroma. This one smells like grated lemon peel (just as it should).
Lemon Oil is a strong germicide and astringent, a wonderful air disinfectant and freshener. I use it in cleaning solutions all the time for its clean scent and disinfecting action.
Lemon Essential Oil has fever reducing action as well as its effective germicidal action, so it’s a good oil to use to aid in treating colds and fevers. Lemon oil stimulates the immune system, and stimulates circulation. Lemon is a key component in most anti-cellulite blends. It has a toning effect on oily skin and hair.
Of all the oils where organic as opposed to conventional farming methods make a difference, the citrus fruit oils lead the way. After all, when a crop is sprayed with insecticides, it is the rind of the lemon that is coated with and absorbs the chemicals. Research has shown appallingly high levels of pesticides in many essential oils.
The use of organic cold pressed oils will eliminate the chemical residue completely.
BLENDS WITH: Any of the Conifer Oils, with many of the spice oils, and with other Citrus Oils. Also Atlas Cedarwood, Lavender, Neroli, Patchouli, and Peppermint.
SHELF LIFE: Approximately 1 to 2 years after you open the bottle. Storing in the dark, refrigerated, and decanting half full bottles into smaller, full bottles will extend shelf life.
SAFETY: Cold pressed Lemon Oil is a photosensitizer. Because of this, IFRA recommends that leave on products use, at most, a 2% dilution. (This does not apply to wash off products like soaps and shower gels.)

I love this for cleaning! 20 drops and a half a cup of white vinegar, and 1 3/4 cups of water gets everything, super clean and shiny, including glass! And it smells wonderful!
