Lemon essential oil has a light medium scent, with a clean, lemony quality. It is a refreshing and cooling oil, 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.
The greener, unripe lemons are ideally used to harvest the oil from as they contain higher quantities of essential oil. The oil is extracted by mechanical expression to yield the greatest quality of oil. Lemon oil blends well with all citrus oils, as well as lavender, neroli, ylang ylang, rose, sandalwood, chamomile, benzoin, geranium and eucalyptus.
