Product Abstract: The Lemon tree was originally a small thorny evergreen tree native to India. It is now common in Southern Europe, Florida and California. The fruit was well known in Europe by the middle ages, and the Greeks and Romans were advocates of its properties. Lemon Oil has been historically recognized as a cleanser, and Lemons themselves reached the height of fame when the British Navy began using citrus fruits to counteract the effects of scurvy.
Cautions: This essential oil may contain phototoxic properties and it is suggested to avoid exposure to the sun after application to the skin. Dilute well before use; for external use only. May cause skin irritation in some individuals; a skin test is recommended prior to use. Contact with eyes should be avoided.
Storage: It is recommended that oils packaged in metal containers (for safe shipping) be transferred into dark glass containers to maintain freshness and attain maximum shelf life.

Rating: Pure perfection! It's everything lemon should be. The lemon organic (Sicily) smells of lemonade It works amazingly well at cleaning scum and mould too. It completely cleaned off my barbecue grill just by soaking the grill in water with about 20 drops of this lemon EO.
Rating: Such a nice strong smell. Very fresh and almost has a candied aroma. Like holding the Lemon skin in my hands and smelling it. Very very nice.

Rating: So very sweet not tart like I thought it would be but it's very likeable. I've never had lemon EO so I have nothing to compare it to. It's quite subtle in my opinion I want to make a citrus blend with it and I need it to have a strong fruity scent. I wonder if it develops or changes over time to give more depth...

Rating: This is a pleasant, light lemon pulp-y scent. I was hoping for a more zesty peel scent. I purchased this and the Argentina to compare; both were very similar and light. However between the two, this one reminded me more of cleaning products and the Argentina reminded me more of lemonade.

Rating: It isn't the bright, sunny lemon smell that I had hoped for, it's more of a softer lemon scent. Great for cleaning products or I put it in my dish soap. If you are looking for a non-photosensitive version make sure to grab the Lemon 5 Fold version of this instead
Rating: great scent, works really well and you cant beat the price!

Rating: One of my favorites especially for cleaning
By:Danielle, Montreal, Quebec Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 04-Jan-2013
Rating: Lemon is my favourite fruit, and I use this EO all around my house for cleaning and as a room spray. It is essential in a citrus blend. I have suggested it to clients to keep a small bottle on their desk at work to inhale during the day to help combat mental fatigue and improve alertness. I like that the EO has a subtle sweetness to it.

Rating: It was shown in the many studies that the lemon essential oil is best to turn down stress, fear and anxiety and there is no doubt it is when you smell this . It's pure freshness and I just smell it straight from the bottle. A must have.

By:Natalie, Mont-Royal, Quebec Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 08-Nov-2010
Rating: Another wonderful scent! Very strong, but as mentioned, not overpowering! Smells like lemons fresh from the tree!
By:Leeann, Grand Valley, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 25-May-2008
Rating: A lovely lemon scent and not too overpowering.
By:Marilyn, Newmarket, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 11-Jan-2010
Rating: One of my favorite oils! Cheery, uplifiting... smells like the real thing.
Rating: This scent is (obviously) in the class of citruses such as bergamot and mandarin. It is closer to mandarin, more lemon like, and even sweet if you ask me. This is the stereotypical lemon EO if there ever was one. The price is reasonable, especially for Canadian dollars.
By:Sherif, Scarborough, Ontario Top ReviewerDate: Loyal Customer Since: 27-Jul-2006
