Lemon essential oils can be pale yellow to deep yellow in color. Lemons are grown on small evergreen trees native to Asia but are now grown in many other warm climates around the world. The essential oil contains the naturally occurring chemical d-limonene, with potent antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. It blends well with eucalyptus and lavender essential oils for an invigorating aroma. It is also used in the culinary industry to flavor drinks, confections and cakes.

Lemon essential oil has many uses and benefits. It is known to not only be a powerful external cleanser but an excellent internal cleanser as well, with the ability to aid in detoxification, improve digestion, and boost your mood. It has a low pH level, which gives it strong antibacterial properties, making it a powerful ingredient in household cleaners. Many people also use it in creams and lotions for its skin brightening and rejuvenating effects.
Top, Middle or Base Note
Most citrus oils, including lemon oil, are considered to be phototoxic, which causes an increase in sensitivity to sunlight, often resulting in skin irritation. Avoid exposure to direct sunlight if applied topically, even if diluted.
Purity and Grading
All of our essential oils are 100% pure, undiluted oils. We strive to source the highest quality oils from established, reputable suppliers that value purity, sustainability and natural practices. We are often questioned by customers whether our oils are “therapeutic grade”.
The term “therapeutic grade” was created and trademarked by newer essential oil companies to differentiate their products from others on the market. The truth of the matter is that the Food and Drug Administration does not certify the quality of essential oils as “therapeutic grade” nor do they provide a certifying label. GloryBee Essential Oils provide the same quality, purity, and reputability as therapeutic grade oils – often times at a lower prices.
