Frequently Asked Questions
What is Steam Distilled Lemon essential oil?
  • Steam distilled Lemon is ever so slightly different from cold pressed Lemon essential oil. It has the same bright, zesty aroma and is also known for its cleansing, and purifying abilities. However, the major difference is that steam distilled Lemon oil is non-phototoxic from the sun's UV rays, making it safe to use topically in body care products blended with carrier oil to support healthy, even skin tones no matter the time of day.
How to make Lemon essential oil?
  • Essential oils derived from citrus peels are generally cold pressed as opposed to steam distilled. Cold pressing the peels of citrus fruits preserves the botanical integrity of the oils. This process involves mechanically pressing or squeezing the rind of the fruit to express the essential oil from them. If there is any water byproduct, such as juice from the fruit, it is separated from the essential oil before bottling. Cold pressed lemon and other citrus oils are phototoxic meaning they will cause a burn on the skin if used topically and the skin is exposed to direct sunlight.
Is Lemon essential oil safe for cats?
  • There is a lot of conflicting information on the web about cats and essential oils. A lot of it is outdated and based on very very old medical research. If you would like to read more on essential oils and a cat's metabolism regarding essential oils, please refer to this article written by a Veterinary doctor who is also an aromatic medical practitioner. The vet says that cats are able to metabolize essential oils adding that “they will not build up over time, although cats can have what we refer to as a different half-life for a chemical, or elimination time” - which includes drugs cats receive from their veterinarian for any procedures or medical issues.
What is Lemon essential oil used for?
  • Lemon, with its refreshing aroma and air freshener quality, is often used in cleaning products for good reason. It has strong antibacterial and antifungal properties and is also a fabulous addition to immunity blends. In skin blends, its purpose is to aid the healing of blemishes and wounds and is beneficial as an antioxidant. As an astringent, it is an excellent addition to help control oily skin conditions. Other uses include controlling body odor, reducing nausea, relieving stress, uplifting mood and as an energy booster. If that wasn't enough to highlight Lemon's incredible benefits, consider using a few drops of lemon in a topical blend with Lavender, Sandalwood, Rosemary and Vetiver when you feel a sore throat coming on.
Can I use Lemon essential oil instead of lemon extract?
  • Lemon oil is a good substitute for lemon extract. Since lemon oil is a component of lemon extract, it makes it a great alternative that can be used in any recipe that calls for lemon extract. Lemon essential oil has a higher concentration of lemon (flavor) than lemon extract, leaving some to believe that the extract plays a better supporting role in baking, adding a more subtle flavor to the food it’s added to.
