Oil Summary: Lemon essential oil is known for its uplifting, positive and calming effect on the mood. Its ability to treat stress is matched only by its detoxifying power; with such a wide range of applications it is considered a staple in any essential oil therapy. Cold-pressed from the outer rind of the fruit, it presents as a bright yellow, thin liquid with a clean, fresh and citrusy top fragrance note. Lemons for essential oil are harvested slightly green in order to produce a higher quality oil. It takes more than three thousand lemons to produce just one kilo (2.2 pounds) of essential oil. Its constituents include Limonene, citral, bergamotine, limettine, diosmine and limotricine. Lemon essential oil does not keep well, and if left in unprotected conditions with high heat or light can become cloudy and rancid. If your lemon essential oil appears this way, or takes on a disagreeable smell, discard it immediately as its therapeutic nature will be negligible at that point. It stimulates the body’s elimination processes, both through the digestive tract and through blood and lymph circulation. Lemon essential oil has a stimulating effect on the mind and body. It decreases the response of stress hormones to help you relax and feel less anxious.
