Lemon Essential Oil (Citrus limonum) from Italy is Therapeutic Quality Essential Oil produced by cold expression of the peel of the lemon. It's one of the lightest fragrances used in aromatherapy, an example of a “top note”.

Lemons grow on a small evergreen tree growing nine to 19 feet high with pale green leaves and highly perfumed white and pink flowers. A Lemon tree can produced up to 1,500 lemons each year.

As with all citrus trees, the lemon tree originated in Asia making it’s way to Greece in the second century AD. It now grows throughout the Mediterranean with Florida and California being the major producers. The peel was used in the Roman empire to fragrance clothing and repel insects. In the late 17th century a pharmacist named Nicholas Lemery recognized the medicinal value of the fruit. The British Navy began using large quantities of lemons to counteract scurvy on sea voyages.

Lemon Essential Oil can be a potential phototoxin and one should avoid outdoors activities if this oil has been applied to the skin.

In traditional Oriental medicine Lemon Essential Oil is cool and dry and will clear heat, dampness, and phlegm.

Lemon Essential Oil is indicated as a lymphatic decongestant and is useful for obesity, cellulite, high blood pressure, and cholesterol. It is potentially useful for removing urinary stones and gall stones. It can be helpful in relieving headaches, nausea, and insomnia. Essential Oil of Lemon improves circulation and tones the blood vessels leading to its us for varicose veins, hemorrhoids, and nosebleeds.

  • Essential Oil and Pets: 

    Quick Guidelines:

    • Cats and dogs have an enhanced sense of smell, so using diffusers could become overwhelming.

    • Cats’ livers cannot metabolize some of the compounds in essential oils. Therefore, they may be more susceptible to toxicity. 

    • Clients should keep oils stored away from pets.

    • If a pet accidentally ingests essential oils, clients should call their veterinary office or the  ASPCA Animal Poison Control Center.

    • Remind clients that animals react and absorb the oils differently than humans do. Any oils being used on or around animals should be diluted by water or a carrier oil.

    • Some products are not made from pure oils; look for additional ingredients that could be detrimental to pets.

    • Some oils could cause chemical burns if applied directly to the skin.
