A delicate steam distillation of organic Italian lemon fruits. Steam Distilled Lemon Essential Oil is smooth, refined and pleasantly uplifting. Our Steam Distilled Lemon Essential Oil is softer and brighter than our cold pressed lemon oil. According to studies, lemon has been shown to brighten people's moods as well as enhance concentration. Try adding 5 to 10 drops to your diffuser, nebulizer or personal inhaler and experience the benefits! Lemon essential oil has also been shown to purify the environment by reducing the number of microbes when it is diffused into the air!
This Lemon Essential Oil is very very low in bergapten, the chemical compound that can result in skin photosensitization found in much higher amounts in pressed citrus oils. Steam distilled lemon oil is a much better choice for topical Aromatherapy and skincare applications with much less risk of photosensitizing effects associated with pressed citrus oils. Follow proper dilution guidelines for topical applications.
A fresh top note for eau de cologne and citrus and gourmand scents, floral perfumes, lotions or sprays. Lemon blends well with other citrus, jasmine, labdanum, neroli, oak moss, vetiver, vanilla and many more. Visit our Blog for a natural perfume recipe with steam distilled Lemon oil.
