With a powerfully zesty, fresh citrus aroma, Lemon essential oil is known for its purifying properties. Often used in cleaning products and air purifiers, this essential oil has distinct cleansing and deodorizing characteristics that make it a popular choice for cleaning surfaces and purifying the air. It is also a wonderful selection to help refresh the smell of an unpleasantly stale room.
When diffusing, it can also help energize and uplift emotions. Energize with peppermint and eucalyptus or cultivate a calmer atmosphere with lavender and frankincense. Lemon oil is uplifting with woody oils such as Douglas fir, cedarwood, or cypress. It complements all other citrus oils like tangerine, bergamot, and grapefruit. It is perfect for fresh summery perfume blends with geranium and sweet orange and combines well with heady florals like rose or ylang ylang.
This oil is a photosensitizer. It shouldn't be used in diy lip products or leave-on skin products within 12 hours of sunlight exposure.
