The scent of lemon oil is sweet, sharp, clear, and citrusy. This oil is classified as a top-note scent with an odor intensity of about two out of five. Blending companions include florals, basil, geranium, and frankincense. For physical complaints, lemon oil is digestive, antiviral, and decongestant. It is also a good liver tonic and useful for conditions associated with damp heat. Emotionally, this oil has cleansing, revitalizing, and purifying capabilities; it also helps maintain poise and objectivity, while encouraging trust, clearing intellect, and easing confusion. Nutritious and medicinal, lemon oil was once considered by some support good health and was used to perfume clothing, cleanse the blood, and repel insects.

All pure essential oils should be used with care. Do not apply directly into skin. A 2% dilution of essential oils to a base of carrier oil or lotion is recommended for all skincare and massage preparations.
100% Pure Lemon Essential Oil
Like most other expressed citrus essences, lemon oil is phototoxic. Do not apply to the skin shortly before exposure to natural or simulated sunlight as it may cause pigmentation. The distified oil is non-phototoxic. Lemon oil has a short shelf-life and should be used within six months of purchase. Once oxidised, it is much more likely to irritate the skin. Use in low concentrations.
USAGE: Add 1-3 drops of Bianca Rosa® essential oil to every 5 mL (1 tsp.) of carrier oil for massage or skin care needs. Add 5-15 drops (depending on strength desired) to bath water. Add a few drops of oil to a water-filled spray bottle to create a refreshing room spray, or add to diffusers to create warm room scent. CAUTIONS: Always do a test patch when applying oils to the skin (particularly citrus oils) to determine if itching, soreness, or redness develop. Store away from heat and light. Keep away from eyes, nose, and mouth. Bianca Rosa® essential oils are for EXTERNAL USE ONLY.
