Latin name: Citrus limon  
Source country: Sicily, Spain, USA.  
Appearance:Most lemon oil is obtained by expression of the lemon peel and is  
normally pale yellow.  
Aroma: Sharp, acidic, lemony  
Derivation: Lemon oil is derived from the fruit of the lemon tree. Lemon juice is the  
main product extracted and is a large seller, the essential oil less so.  
Chemicals: The main constituent is limonene as well as terpinene and geraniol. It also  
contains other sensitisers including citral and linalool. The presence of bergaptenes can  
cause lightening of the skin if applied to the skin in sunlight so lemon oil should never be  
used undiluted on healthy skin. Lemon juice is used in this way to lighten hair colour.  
Uses: Lemon oil is an astringent and antiseptic making it a popular inclusion in  
cosmetics. It is also used widely used in household products because it has a fresh  
(therefore clean) aroma. It is extremely acidic and this property can help remove some  
types of warts by applying undiluted. (normally only to the base of the feet). It is supposed  
to be stimulating to the mind at the same time is relaxing and may help insomnia. It is  
recommended for a destressing massage (suitably diluted).  
Note: As with all pure essential oils, dilute appropriately with a suitable carrier oil  
before using on the skin. Do not take essential oils internally
