Lemons and lemon essential oil have been used in Ayurvedic medicine to treat a wide spectrum of health conditions for at least 1,000 years.

Citrus plants are the main sources of benefit-rich essential oils because of their many uses in food and medicine. Lemon oil is one of the most popular citrus essential oils because of its versatility and powerful antioxidant properties.

The health benefits of lemon essential oil have been well-established scientifically. Lemon is best known for its ability to cleanse toxins from the body, and it’s widely used to stimulate lymphatic drainage, rejuvenate energy, purify skin, and fight bacteria and fungi.

Lemon oil is indeed one of the most “essential” oils to have on hand. It can used for so many purposes, from a natural teeth whitener to household cleaner, laundry freshener, mood booster and nausea reliever.

You can cover a lot of ground with just one bottle of this essential oil.

HOW IS LEMON OIL EXTRACTED?

Lemon Essential Oil is obtained by the cold expression of fresh lemon fruit peels – also called skins or rinds – which contain volatile oil glands. Nearly 1000 lemons are needed to produce 1 lb. of Lemon Oil. After extraction, Lemon Oil has a thin, watery viscosity, a pale, greenish-yellow colour, and gives off a sharp yet fresh fragrance, which can largely be attributed to the chemical constituent Limonene.
