I love lemon essential oil. I always have at least two bottles on hand, for various uses around the home. It’s versatile and safe enough for culinary use, as well as powerful enough for use in cleaning, natural beauty care and hand sanitizers.
Some interesting facts about lemon essential oil:
– Citrus oils oxidize rapidly, so fresh oils should be used and all citrus oils should be stored in a refrigerator.
– Citrus oils are used frequently to calm anxiety and nervous tension.
– Citrus oils come from the peel of the fruit, and are usually cold pressed. The cold pressed oils are the ones that are photo-toxic, and the steam distilled ones are not.
