Refreshing and revitalising, Lemon oil is a wonderful tonic to cool and clarify the mind and body.

Nature/Essence – Cooling & Clarifying

Lemon oil has astringent, antiseptic and toning effects for oily, congested or acne-prone skin. It is also used for boils, fungal conditions, cold sores and warts, and in formulations for greasy hair and deodorants. (Avoid sun exposure after applying to skin)

Lemon oil provides a lovely fresh scent and a detoxifying, toning action in body oils or lotions applied to congested, stagnant areas including cellulite, fluid retention, varicose or spider veins, as well as rheumatic joint conditions. Studies show Lemon oil also has antimicrobial and immune support properties, great to diffuse or as an inhalation for coughs and colds.

Lemon helps clarify the mind, aiding concentration and steadying nervousness or agitation. One study showed diffusing Lemon oil reduced typing errors by 54%! It uplifts and provides a sense of space and when feeling overwhelmed or mentally fatigued and unable to make decisions.

A lovely oil to diffuse during cold and flu season to purify and refresh the air, and also a great choice in household cleaning blends and dishwash liquid.

I got the sample of this to make soap. The smell was really strong going into the soap, but it became a very mellow and subtle smell. I will be ordering a larger amount so I can do more testing with it.

Lemon Essential Oil

I have loved using this in my homemade all purpose cleaner and have also recently made a natural mosquito repellent using lemon and lavandin essential oils bought from PureNature. I've found it pretty effective, without my skin reacting which is amazing!

Fresh nice smell for soap making

This fragrance goes really well together with Calendular or Camomille - a small drop goes a long well for soap making.
