There is a reason Lemon fragrances are added to many household cleaning products. Its natural essence and crisp aroma is marvelously fresh. So skip the chemicals and give Lemon oil a try.
When used in aromatherapy, Lemon essential oil benefits emotional wellbeing and can uplift sullen moods and inspire positive thinking. Sourced from the romantic lands of Italy, Edens Garden essential oil is the highest quality available.
Lemon trees reach about 20 feet in height and grow serrated leaves, thorns and fragrant flowers. The citrus fruit is high in vitamin C. To extract the citrus oil, the Lemon peel is cold pressed.
