Lemon Essential Oil
Lemon essential oil
has a light, fresh, citrus aroma, reminiscent of Mom baking in the kitchen. Quality Lemon essential oil
should smell like the freshly scraped lemon peel, sharp and green, not powdery and candy-like. The color of the oil is yellow to light green. It is cold expressed from the peel of lemon.Why Auroma 100% pure and natural, therapeutic grade Lemon essential oil from The Aromatherapy Place? So you neednít worry about buying essential oils that have been adulterated:
Everyday Aromatherapy has been a ritual in Australia dating back to the Aborigines. Auroma has the technology and ability to analyze and validate every essential oil
by conducting Gas Chromotography/Mass Spectrometry (GC/MS) testing and analysis. The Auroma laboratory is staffed by a team of experts, including two Ph.D Chemists, a Chemical Engineer, a Cosmetic Applications Chemist, trained perfumer and three accredited Aromatherapists. Every batch, every time!Special note:
Citrus Oils in their pure state, may appear cloudy or contain small particles of wax. This occurs naturally in the oil and becomes most apparent when stored in cold areas. It is recommended, however, that these oils be stored in a cold place to ensure longevity and quality. If the clarity is a concern, you may wish to filter until clear, however once cooled again the cloudy appearance may return. The clarity may improve through storing the oil at room temperature, but this will reduce the shelf life and is not recommended.
