The Story

Lemon: Citrus limonum (Risso)

Why lemon? A well-known summery citrus, the cleansing qualities of lemon essential oil are ideal for skin care and uplifting DIY cleaning products. A strong and stimulating fruity aroma, lemon aromatherapy essential oil contains a lingering note that helps to increase the lasting quality of its fragrance. This is why lemon essential oil is perfect for mixing into homemade cleaning products and soaps.

Quality Assured: Our organic lemon essential oil is responsibly sourced from Italy. The essential oil is cold pressed from the outer rind of the lemon; this is preferred for therapeutic purposes. Every batch of oil is Certified Organic by Oregon Tilth and produced without the use of genetic engineering, artificial fertilizers, or pesticides. Additionally, our expert aromatherapists here at the Apothecary Shoppe personally assess all of our oils—using touch, taste, smell, and lab analyses—to ensure that your essential oil is suitable for clinical use and entirely free of adulterants.

How to Use

Benefits: Lemon aromatherapy essential oil contains many cleansing qualities and is perfect for use in homemade cleansers, soap products, and cosmetics. 

Regulatory Status: Lemon essential oil is listed on the FDA Generally Recognized as Safe (GRAS) list.

How to Store Your Oil: Keep your essential oils stored in a cool dark place. Lemon (and all citrus oils), pine, and juniper should all be stored in the fridge to prevent oxidation. If an oil spoils from heat and oxidizes, it can cause skin irritation.
