Lemon 5 Fold Essential Oil

Description: The Lemon tree was originally a small thorny evergreen tree native to India. It is now common in Southern Europe, Florida and California. Five Fold Citrus Essential Oils are more concentrated than the regular citrus essential oils. Through extended distillation, terpenes are removed from the oil rendering more suitable for cosmetic applications. Similarly, the increased concentration makes the essential oil fragrance much stronger – perfect for soap & candle makers!

Common Uses: Lemon Essential Oil has been historically recognized as a cleanser. It is reputed as being antiseptic, and as having refreshing and cooling properties. On skin and hair it can be used for its cleansing effect, as well as for treating cuts and boils. Research has also shown Lemon Essential Oil to enhance the ability to concentrate.
Strength of Aroma: Strong
Blends well with: Bergamot, Lime, Orange and Mandarin.
Aromatic Scent: Lemon 5 Fold Essential Oil has a very strong citrus scent.
History: The fruit was well known in Europe by the middle ages, and Greeks and Romans were advocates of its therapeutic properties. Lemon essential oil reached the height of its fame when the British began using the citrus fruit to counteract the effects of scurvy.
Cautions: Lemon 5 Fold Essential Oil is non-toxic, but may cause skin irritation in some. Lemon is also phototoxic and should be avoided prior to exposure to direct sunlight. Avoid during pregnancy.
