Citrus limon

The zesty and refreshing scent of lemon oil really promises sunshine in a bottle! Expressed by cold pressing the rind of the fruit, this bright oil belongs to the small evergreen lemon tree. This popular and vibrant fruit originated in Asia, is known as the ‘fruit of health,’ and was originally used by the ancient Egyptians and Romans for its many benefits. Not only does lemon essential oil have an energising aroma, but it can be used in a variety of beauty and haircare rituals to leave you feeling refreshed and deeply cleansed. Add a few drops of this delightfully fresh oil to your daily routine and make the most of its uplifting fragrance.

Young Living’s Lemon essential oil is particularly special, as not only does it offer liquid sunshine when used alone, but it’s a very important ingredient in many popular blends. Whether your favourite is Transformation or our iconic Thieves® essential oil, you’ll find the bright and invigorating scent of lemon is key to both. Lemon is also found across our Thieves® product range and can be enjoyed in both our Thieves® Household Cleaner and Thieves® Bar Soap.

    About Citrus limon

    The lemon tree originated in Asia and only found its way to Europe in the 16th century. It is part of the periwinkle family, and the trees can reach a height of up to 6 metres. For each 15 ml bottle of Young Living’s Lemon essential oil, it takes 75 lemons. The oil is extracted by cold pressing the rind of the fruit, which produces an oil that promises a beautifully fresh fragrance.
