  • Description

    Aroma 
    Lemon (Citrus limonum) essential oil has a light medium scent, with a clean lemony quality. 

    The plant 
    The lemon tree is a small thorny tree with highly perfumed little flowers. It is native to India although now grown through Southern Europe and Florida and California. 

    The extraction 
    The greener, unripe lemons are ideally used to harvest oil from as they contain higher quantities of essential oil. The oil is extracted by mechanical expression to yield the greatest quality of oil. 

    Affects 
    Lemon essential oil is refreshing and cooling, renowned for being reviving, soothing, stimulating and purifying. When used in skincare lemon essential oil brightens the complexion and cleanses the skin. This same cleansing action is useful for shampoos and reducing greasy hair.

Lemons were originally introduced into Europe by the Holy Crusaders during the Middle Ages, and the fruit has been famously used to prevent scurvy in seamen. Since then, lemon essential oil has become a popular oil for use in aromatherapy.
