  • The small, evergreen lemon tree has serrated, oval leaves, stiff, thorny branches and fragrant white or pale pink flowers. The oval shaped, green fruits turn sunshine yellow when ripe. Organic Lemon essential oil is obtained by the cold expression of the outer part of the fresh fruit peel. Its scent is fresh and light, slightly sharp but sweet, with the tart and tangy smell of fresh lemons. About 3000 lemons will yield 1kg of lemon essential oil.

    Lemon has long been respected for its ability to "lift the spirits” and is often recommended for stress-related fatigue. Lemon essential oil is believed to increase concentration and awareness and to help eliminate emotional confusion. It is often used by students or drivers to help them concentrate and stay alert. Lemon also has an affinity with the respiratory system and is a powerful antiseptic, but care must be taken if the skin is sensitive.

    Safety Note:
    Organic Lemon is a photosensitive oil which means exposure to sunlight should be avoided when using it, particularly in the first few hours after use. Avoid in massage blends if the skin is over sensitive. Lemon can have a temporary bleaching effect on some skins (spot test if in doubt).
