Lemon Essential Oil
Lemon essential oil, also known as Citrus limon oil, is extracted from lemon peels, which have many volatile oil glands in their pits. Approximately 1,000 lemons are needed to produce one pound of lemon oil.
The lemon's citrus scent comes from a chemical compound called limonene, which comprises the majority of lemon oil. This compound is said to contain potent medicinal properties that may help prevent diseases and rid the body of free radicals. It's perfect for health-conscious oilers who enjoy refreshing scents.
