Citrus limon – Italy
Our organically grown lemon essential oil is cold pressed from the rinds of freshly harvested lemons cultivated in sunny orchards that line the mountainsides of Italy. We love using lemon essential oil in our DIY cleaning products that harness the purifying nature of lemon to effectively cleanse and brighten a space.
The bright yellow rinds of the fruits of the Citrus limon tree create a magically sweet, citrusy essential oil.
This bright, refreshing essential oil can also help boost the immune system.
Emotionally and energetically, lemon essential oil brings an element of sparkle to a blend and can help lift a cloud of depression or ease emotional tension. It invites happiness and positive energy wherever it goes
Citrus essential oils are widely used in aromatherapy, perfumery and cosmetics.
One of the most accessible, popular and effective citrus oils is lemon essential oil, the use of which in cosmetology is very wide.
Like all other essential oils, lemon oil has a pronounced bactericidal and antiseptic effect.
In cosmetology, lemon oil is used to care for the skin of the face, hair and nails.
Useful substances in the composition of the ether contribute to the natural lightening of the hair, giving it a charming shine, strengthening the roots, treatment of split ends.
It helps to fight with oily skin, dandruff, brittle hair and nails.
Like lemon juice, lemon essential oil has a whitening effect, so it can be used to combat freckles, pigment spots and vascular pattern (couperose).
Lemon essential oil is very effective to combat cellulite.
It can be used in combination with base oil for anti-cellulite massage and wraps, as well as added to anti-cellulite baths (remember that essential oils do not dissolve in water, therefore you need to mix lemon oil with an emulsifier — milk, cream, honey, sea salt or foam bath).
It is important to remember that concentrated lemon oil can cause a chemical burn of the skin, so it is not recommended to use it in its pure form.
Add a few drops of lemon oil in the finished cosmetics (creams, masks, balms) or in the base vegetable cosmetic oil.
You should also take into account that lemon oil has a photo-sensitizing effect, that is, increases the sensitivity of the skin to the action of ultraviolet rays. Therefore, within a couple of hours after external use, the oils are not advised to go out into the bright sun.
In natural and organic cosmetics, lemon oil plays several important roles at once.
First of all, of course, it is valued precisely for its cosmetic effect: toning, cleansing, softening, whitening, nourishing.
This oil is a natural preservative due to its bactericidal properties.
Lemon oil is a natural flavor that gives cosmetics a fresh citrus scent.
Lemon has the most bitter and astringent aroma of the entire group of citrus esters.
Since bright aromas are characteristic of all representatives of the citrus group, it is strongly recommended not to combine them.
In the perfume and ether compositions lemon notes - always the upper, quickly volatile tones.
All coniferous woody, as well as rich and easily recognizable aromas of Ylang-Ylang, Lavender and Palmarosa, have complementary aromas in relation to lemon.
This oil is actively used as a flavoring room for a quick refreshing effect, eliminating unpleasant odors.
Since lemon oil is very volatile, the bottle should be tightly closed, and when used, several standard dosages should be increased.
• For electric aroma diffusers, instead of the standard 4-5 drops, 5 to 8 drops of this essential oil should be added.
• For personalized aroma pendants, use 3 drops.
• If you want to use it for inhalation, the duration of the procedure should not exceed 7 minutes (4 drops of oil will suffice for hot inhalation).
• For aromatic baths, massage with essential oils, compresses and applications in the oral cavity, take from 4 to 7 drops of lemon per base agent.
• To improve the performance of cosmetics, for every 5 grams of your finished composition, add 3 drops of this ester.
Important: essential oils are highly concentrated vegetable essences, so they require dilution with carrier vegetable oils.
