Lemon Essential Oil

Lemon Essential oil is one of the most commonly used essential oils in aromatherapy and natural cleaning products. Lemon essential oil is cold pressed using the nutrient dense peel from the fruit of citrus limon plant. This is a process that essentially presses the peel while rotating it until the oil is released from the peel. Lemon essential oil’s light refreshing scent and natural degreasing properties make it a must have addition to your collection.

As one of the nation's largest suppliers of lemon essential oil, we have the expertise to ensure all oils are 100% pure using up to date GC testing.  This ensures all material meets the highest standards. 




Lemon Oil 

Lemon Oils have been popular throughout history dating back to millennial old Ayurvedic medicine. Hundreds of years ago the petite lemon tree was brought on ships by sailors to prevent scurvy and relieve conditions caused by bacterial infections. Today Lemon Essential Oil is found in many cleaning products and is also used for a variety of reasons ranging from anxiety to skincare and more!  Please note that research on the health benefits of aromatherapy is limited and lemon oil is no different. There is some evidence of its benefits which make it a popular choice for many people seeking healthy, natural alternatives. Keep in mind that lemon essential oil can be irritating to the skin, and it is recommended that you do not apply it directly to skin unless mixed with a carrier such as fractionated coconut oil. Lemon essential oil and other citrus oils can cause photosensitivity if used before sun exposure. To prevent any negative reaction, limit the use of photosensitive oils to your bedtime routine, or if you must apply during the day apply only to areas that will be covered by a densely woven material. 


Lemon Essential Oil Benefits

Though we do not recommend that you ingest essential oils you can try a number of additional ways to harness the benefits of Lemon Essential oil. Diffusing lemon oil will release a clean fresh scent that may aid with relieving stress and anxiety.  Many of our customers find lemon essential oil to be one of our most calming oils and have compared diffusing it to the soothing effects of drinking tea with fresh lemon. 

Studies have shown that plants with a high citrus content like lemon have high levels of inflammation-fighting antioxidants. Many cosmetic companies put lemon essential oil into their products because they believe that it clears skin and helps reduce inflammation. There have not been many long-term studies on lemon essential oil and the FDA has not issued any final rulings on the claims that can be made when adding this oil to your finished product. Any claims surrounding products containing Lemon Essential Oil have not been evaluated by the FDA and consequently claims that Lemon Essential Oil can treat or cure various ailments can not be made.

    Freshly squeezed lemon-scented perfection!

    Posted by Missy K on 15th Nov 2016

    Exactly as other reviewers described! This product has a light, bright lemon zest aroma that lingers. I use it on cotton balls to scent rooms, in cleaning products mixed with orange and tea tree oils, and blended with your Orange, Clove & Cinnamon fragrant oil in my wax warmer. My only regret is not buying two bottles at a time.

    I just received this oil, so my comments are based on initial use. The smell is citrus lemon, as it should be. I am not taking ingesting it or using it in food preparation. I have diffused it and not disappointed in any way. I am also using it to discourage ants and other pests adding it to diamaceous earth and placing it about where there has been activity. So far, I am satisfied they have gotten the message to move on.

    Outstanding Aroma!

    Posted by Craig on 25th Aug 2016

    I've been using essential lemon oil for years, as an after shower skin treatment. I mix one part lemon oil to four parts of either canola, vegetable, or olive oil. It makes my skin smell great!
