This STEAM DISTILLED Lemon oil is imported from a distillery in India that Somah has visited. It is wildcrafted. This is a distilled Lemon. Not cold -pressed. Making it NOT photo-toxic, like other common citrus oil‘s.
This lemon oil has a soft almost flowery citrus smell that is refreshing and revitalizing. It does not have the standard scent or flavor of Lemon, it’s very “wild” rather than crisp. The BIo-Certified Lemon is the standard one, if expected. It’s a favorite for Somah in many uses: fantastic to diffuse alone or with other oils. It’s great in cleaning products or laundry too. Excellent to brighten skin care when diluted. A nice brightener in a salad dressing too. (oil/vinegar)
The properties of lemon are stimulating, calming, antiseptic, anti-fungal, and detoxifying. While lemon adds a pleasant taste and aroma, it aids in digestion and stomach problems. The detoxifying and astringent nature rejuvenates sagging or tired looking skin. Inhaling lemon oil increases concentration and alertness. The high vitamin content gives a boost to the immune system. It can also be used in cleaners, perfumes, soaps, and beverages. It replaces negative emotions by creating a cheerful atmosphere of freshness and purity.
The aroma of lemon can inspire increased concentration and awareness. A Japanese study showed that after diffusing lemon oil throughout a busy office building, typing errors decreased by 54%. Lemon and Peppermint oils are also used in German office spaces to increase efficiency and productivity.
