Lemon (Citrus limon) is part of the Rutaceae Family and is widely referred to as being the ‘fruit of health’. The citrus peel is the most nutrient-dense portion because of its fat-soluble phytonutrients which are composed of numerous natural compounds. It is indeed one of the most important sources of benefit-rich essential oil that can be used for many different applications.

There are two different methods for extracting lemon essential oil, namely, via steam distillation and cold pressing. Lemon essential oil can be extracted through steam distillation from the peel of fresh lemons. As a result, it is safe to use on the skin, even when exposed to the sun. Steam-distillation retains all of the lemon’s other properties, including its beautiful bright and refreshing smell, which is only slightly milder than that of cold-pressed lemon oil.  Cold pressed lemon oil is also extracted from the peels of the lemon fruit via a method called the “cold pressing” process.

The difference between cold-pressed lemon oil and steam distilled lemon oil is that steam distilled lemon oil is not phototoxic , which means it will not cause any skin reactions when exposed to sunlight. Therefore, it is safe to be used in body care products without fear of phototoxicity.

It is also known for its versatility and powerful antioxidant properties. It is commonly used in a variety of skin and aromatherapy products. If diluted , the essential oil can be applied directly to the skin or diffused into the air.


Because of its burst of energy, a soothing smell and vivid colour, the lemon essential oil is also known as Liquid Sunshine . It has a distinct cleansing and deodorising characteristic  that makes it ideal for cleansing applications, purifying the air as well as surfaces or for adding as a reviving ingredient to skincare products, lotions and hair conditioners. It is safe to use in aromatherapy and diluted and topical application s. 

In addition to that, it has an array of benefits to the skin. Due to its strong antioxidant activity and antimicrobial compounds , it works as a natural exfoliator. It helps prevent the signs of ageing lines and covers up comedones.

  • This should not be ingested. If you're meaning to add lemon flavour, we recommend adding lemon extract instead that is specifically intended and approved for use .
  • Photosensitivity may increase when exposed to the sun/sunlight within 12 hours. Make sure to use a properly diluted lemon essential oil solution.
  • We recommend that you consult a health professional before using if you are pregnant, breastfeeding, taking medication, or have a medical condition.
  • Skin irritation is a possibility. Since it's so potent, contact allergies are a possibility. We suggest that you do a patch test on your arm or leg before using it to avoid any adverse reaction.
  • Make a mixture with a carrier oil before applying undiluted essential oils to the skin.
  • For external use only. Avoid contact from eyes and other sensitive areas.

    I use this in many cleaning applications: I add it to the washing machine powder, incorporate it into soap making, and use it in DIY cleaning sprays. It has a very strong, fresh lemon smell and is great value for money.
