The pastry, confectionery, perfumery and cosmetics industries make extensive use of it. It is one of the most used essential oils in aromatherapy. It is particularly ideal for restoring energy and traditionally known as excellent for the proper functioning of the immune defences.

Originally from India, the lemon is one of the most used fruits in natural medicine. Fresh and pungent, its delicious warm scent blends perfectly with eucalyptus, grapefruit, lavender, orange, rosemary and ylang-ylang. The properties of its essential oil are so numerous that it is used systematically with real success in many ailments. It is also a good pick-me-up in case of fatigue.

Its oil is also appreciated for the care of oily skin and to strengthen brittle nails. Ideal for air disinfection, lemon is frequently used in diffusion in nurseries, hospitals and medical offices.

100% pure and natural oil

Accéder au dossier

An essential oil is made up of chemically defined molecules (about 10,000 listed) that have been secreted by special plant cells. It can consist of from one to several hundred molecules, which helps explain why some essential oils have many properties but different therapeutic effectiveness. To guarantee the properties necessary for effective aromatherapy, it is important that an essential oil is 100% pure and natural (not cut, not deterpenated, not mixed with alcohol or vegetable oils) and preferably organic. This is the case for the essential oils we sell. They are sold in tinted bottles with a dropper cap.

Go to the "Properties and characteristics of essential oils" file. Whether pure or mixed, you can use them in our different diffuser models. The information given on each essential oil is for guidance only. Beware of self-diagnosis, do not hesitate to consult an aromatherapist or any other recognised professional and read our special file "properties of essential oils"in our thematic files.
