Lemon Oil


Due to its yellow colour, refreshing scent, ability to purify, and for the burst of energy that it provides, Lemon Essential Oil has earned the nickname “Liquid Sunshine”. Lemon is said to be a hybrid of citron and bitter orange. The origin of the word “lemon” is believed to be from the French word “limon” which is a generic term for citrus fruit. The Lemon essential oil is extracted by Cold-Compressing the peel of the fruit. Believed to be anti-inflammatory, antiseptic, tonic, disinfectant, detoxifying, antimutagenic, soothing, antioxidant, antimicrobial, antifungal and expectorant, Lemon Oil is said to have the most powerful anti-microbial activity of all the essential oils. The cleansing, purifying, and invigorating properties of Lemon make it one of the most versatile oils. Lemon oil contains components like limonene, a-pinene, camphene, b-pinene, sabinene, myrcene, a-terpinene, linalool, nerol and neral.
