Lemon Oil - Aromatheraphy Essentail Oil
Lemon Oil
(Citrus limonum)

LEMON OILLemon is one of the most common oils and is most often cold pressed because of its availability. It has a fresh, clean, familiar smell. Lemon was used by the ancient Romans for stomach upsets and to sweeten the breath, by the British Navy to prevent scurvy, and it is now used for almost everything, from the cure for sore throats and colds to the slice with ice in a glass of fizzy water.

In aromatherapy it is useful for clearing the head, whether you have a cold or are mentally exhausted, for energising an aching body, for boosting circulation, treating cellulite or warming hands and feet.
