Lemon essential oil is known for its euphoric and tonic properties of the nervous system. Vaporized in the environment, it has the ability to improve mood, concentration and memory. Clear your mind, drive away bad thoughts, anxiety and stress. Due to its antiseptic, antiviral and antimicrobial action, lemon essential oil is also useful for preventing influenza "epidemics".
It is also very useful as a massage oil, applied on the skin (not pure, but dilute in another oil).
In this case it is useful as a drainage (against water retention and cellulitis), it improves blood circulation, lightens the skin (useful against dark spots) and has an antiseptic action.
It is also useful for fat and brittle hair or hair fall. In this case you can add 1-2 drops to your shampoo.
For internal use it has an excellent digestive, diuretic and depurative action of the liver.
More specifically, lemon essential oil can be useful for:
The lemon essential oil cannot be used pure on the skin, it must be diluted with a fatty substance, such as vegetable oils (olive oil, sunflower oil, almonds, etc.), or with macerated oils, or creams.
Mixed with vegetable oil (or with a cream) the recommended dilution is:
NB: the lemon essential oil is photosensitizing, so it should never be used before exposure to the sun, especially during the summer. In this case it may cause burns, blisters, skin spots and other skin irritations.
The lemon essential oil from Erbe di Mauro is certified for food use, so it can also be ingested. However, we recommend taking it carefully because, despite being a natural product, it contains very complex and very concentrated substances, so an excessive dosage could be toxic.
In this regard, before use, we recommend that you ask for advice to a professional (doctor/herbalist /naturopath).
I also remind that essential oils should never be used pure. You can add a drop to a lump of sugar, or a teaspoon of honey, or in water, or in fruit juices. Dosages should never exceed 2-3 drops at a time.
NB: Essential oils for internal use can interfere with many drugs. In this case, always consult an expert before ingestion.
* Essential oils are not soluble in water; while bicarbonate, or alternatively fatty substances (such as vegetable oils, or milk) have indeed the purpose of making them soluble in water.
Expiry: after 5 years, if stored well in the dark, away from sources of heat.
The lemon essential oil is photosensitizing, so it should never be applied to the skin before exposing it to the sun. It is contraindicated to pregnant and breastfeeding women, to children under 3 and to those allergic to lemon.
Never use pure on the skin or on the mucous membranes. Keep out of reach of children. Store in a dry place, away from direct sunlight and sources of heat.
All essential oils naturally contain potentially allergenic molecules such as cinnamaldehyde, citronellol, eugenol, citrus, coumarin, limonene, linalool, geraniol, etc. which can, therefore, trigger allergic reactions. For this reason, we recommend testing them before use, applying 1 drop dissolved in 30 ml of olive oil (or other vegetable oil) on the skin of the forearm and wait 48 hours for the possible occurrence of allergies.
