A clear thin liquid with a pleasantly dry citrus scent, it is steam distilled from citrus rinds.

This oil is very versatile, being safer to use and more effective than most commercial and industrial cleaners. At 5 - 15% of total product, it may be blended with surfactants for industrial-strength cleaners, or solubilized and added to water and vinegar bases for effective natural disinfectant surface cleaners for use in the home. It may also be used at full strength as a biodegradable solvent, without the negative impact that synthetic chemical solvents have on the user or to the environment.

Please see our Resource Centre for more ideas for green cleaning.

INCI: d-Limonene

Note: Not for therapeutic use, this is mostly used in green cleaning products and in fragrances.

Caution: All of our products are for external use only. Because of the appealing fruity scent, please do not blend with vanilla or other fruity scents in products that could be swallowed, as the Creamsickle® or Popsickle® scent of the product may mistake it as a food or beverage.

An excellent base for household cleaner! For sure grab some polysorbate 20 and then play with the vinegar/water ratio to create a cleaner that suits your needs. I have ranged from a tough degreaser type spray to a streak free window cleaner with great results. Your kitchen/bathroom/anywhere will shine and smell like Florida.

I used this product for any surface cleaner mix with water and vinegar. It is a wonderful cleaner for grease and any foods stains.

Wow! Just cleaned my windows and mirrors and I'm in love! 1/3 cup of vinegar, 3 cups of water and some d-Limonene (approx. 1 table spoon) in a spray bottle and voilĂ ! The house smells delicious and everything is sparkling clean :)

Wow. Amazing secret ingredient. Be sure to buy the Solubilizer (Polysorbate 20) because you will need to mix equal parts Polysorbate 20 & Solubilizer BEFORE adding it to your water and /or vinegar mixture. (D-Limonene is NOT soluble in water). I suppose you could try without the Solubilizer on a per use basis but you will need to vigorously stir (mechanically emulsify) each time you dip into the product but I have not tried it so cannot comment on that. Also, please note that this is an uplifting aroma especially during this dismal cold winter.... Makes you want to clean everything. It is so much more economical than using Lemon essential oil (or other citrus oils) as a cleaning additive. This product is awesome because you get the industrial grade version for a fraction of the cost. I premix my D-Limonene & Solubilizer (50/50) in a separate bottle so it is ready to add :) 5% D-Limonene (& 5% Polysorbate 20) make for a perfect concentration to clean tough areas. I like to add this to 90% vinegar for a very effective & concentrated (acidic) degreaser. POW!!! And then rinse with water. But for an all purpose cleaner, I recommend 5% D-Limonene, 5% Polysorbate 20, 45% vinegar & 45% water :)

This cleans everything and I try to put in everything from a dishwasher to a laundry detergent. It gives a nice new polish and glow. This being citrus, it must be put in a freezer otherwise it spoils. The only problem for me is that 3 liter can opening is kind of in the top middle and I can't figure out any way to get the liquid out without major spill over. Any thoughts?

this is my second review on this product, i used it today in a water solution...just a teaspoon to a pail of hot water to wash my floors, and immediately my husband and I were both just put at easy with the crisp fresh scent it leaves behind, getting ready to add this to my general house cleaning solution. i just love that grapefuit/orange/lemon scent and it seems to last a really long time. Another wonderful product NDA has offered us.

I put this in everything. The best cleaner that there is. Gives a new like shine and glow that lasts to everything , from ceramics to furniture and appliances to cars.I didn't even know how dirt accumulates until I started using this. I need a lot of it as I use it so often. I have to store it in a fridge and it will be a mainstay for me.

100ml lasted 6 months of weekly cleaning. I added enough drops into a vinegar/water mixture to overpower the vinegar smell, absolutely nothing cleans my darkwood laminate floors like this, it is amazing. I also made a similar cleaning mixture for my bathroom and kitchen, my tiles have never been shinier when used with a microfibre cloth. And what a scent!!! My apartment smells like oranges.

This is an excellent product for household cleaning and de-greasing. You can use it full strength to remove gummy residue from labels and tape (put a few drops on the residue, or use a Q-tip to apply; scrape the residue away before it hardens again). Wear gloves.

For de-greasing your containers after making potions, here is a recipe from swiftcraftymonkey.blogspot.ca :
Dishwashing Liquid with D-limonene
90% regular dishwashing liquid
5% Polysorbate 20
5% D-limonene
(Wipe the containers well first with paper towel).

I was surprised that there is only a 9-month shelf life on D-limonene. It is a new product here, so it can't be old stock. I'd suggest that NDA mention the shelf life on the above information page. I'm glad I just ordered 1 litre, since a little goes a long way.
