Lemon oil is used extensively as a refreshing citrus fragrance in soaps, cosmetics and perfumes. In perfume, it is used as top notes and imparts a refreshingly tangy scent. It is the top note in Balmain’s famous Vent Vert. It is also a main ingredient in 4711 Eau de Cologne, introduced to the world of fragrance in 1792.
Lemons are the tart juicy fruit that come from a spring evergreen tree with shiny leaves and pink and white perfumed flowers.
The method of extraction is expression from the fruit and fruit peel.
Lemon oil helps boost the immune system and stimulates the production of white blood cells while brightening a dull complexion.
Psychological & Emotional uses
Among the many psychological and emotional uses, lemon oil can be both refreshing and cooling. It clears, refreshes and stimulates the mind and is helpful with listlessness and emotional confusion.
Effects on the skin
It is a good cleanser for greasy skin and hair and can help clear dandruff, soften scar tissue and toughen finger nails.
