Aroma: Lemon essential oil has a light medium scent, with a clean lemony quality.

 

 

 

The plant: The lemon tree is a small thorny tree with highly perfumed little flowers. It is native to India although now grown through Southern Europe and Florida and California.  

 

 

 

The extraction: The greener, unripe lemons are ideally used to harvest oil from as they contain higher quantities of essential oil. The oil is extracted by mechanical expression to yield the greatest quality of oil.

 

 

 

Affects: Lemon essential oil is refreshing and cooling, 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.
