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".

Use Advice

1. Applications on the skin through massages

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:

  • for children: 4 drops of essential oil for a tablespoon of vegetable oil/cream;
  • for adults: 6 drops of essential oil for a tablespoon of vegetable oil/cream.

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.

2. Internal use (ingestion)

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.

3. Other applications

  • Air diffusion in the environment: from 6 to 10 drops to be added to the water in air diffuser/vaporizer for the environment, or in the pan of the radiator to purify the air, promote breathing and fight unpleasant odors.
  • Inhalation with the handkerchief: add a drop of essential oil to a handkerchief. Breathe in several times during the day.
  • Hot baths: add a tablespoon of baking soda * (or vegetable oil, or milk) to the hot water of the bath, to which 10 drops of essential oil have been added. For a more effective action, after the bath it is advisable to dry well, without rinsing.
  • Footbath: soak your feet (up to the ankles) in a container full of warm water to which a teaspoon of baking soda * (or vegetable oil, or milk), mixed with 4-6 drops of essential oil has been added. Soak for about 15-20 minutes.
  • In the washing machine: add 10-15 drops (depending on the intensity of the desired perfume) directly in the bowl, mixed with detergent, or with a bit of bicarbonate. It helps for a good cleaning of the fabrics giving the clothes a pleasant clean smell.

* 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.
