HOW TO USE
Add about 4-5 drops of Iryasa Lemon essential oil for every 100ml (3.3 fl.oz) of water in a diffuser. The fresh, citrusy scent shall help impart an energising & enlivening atmosphere along with several therapeutic benefits.
You may need to increase/decrease the number of drops depending on the size of the room and where your diffuser is kept. For instance, you'd probably need less number of drops for a smaller or less ventilated room. Since the intensity of scents are such a personal preference, we recommend that you start with less and work your way up as needed.
For Topical Application
Lemon essential oil helps remove excess oils and can be used to soothe acne prone skin. It also prevents infections when used on insect bites and stings.
Dilute 4 drops of 100% pure Lemon oil in 15ml (0.5 fl.oz) of carrier oil such as Grapeseed oil to make a 1% dilution.

Specific to Lemon Essential Oil
We always recommend performing a patch test, especially if you are using Lemon oil for the first time on your skin

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
I want to clean my home with natural products. Can I combine Lemon essential oil with Tea Tree essential oil to clean my home?
Absolutely! Lemon is a common essential oil used for cleaning surfaces due to its antibacterial properties. Combining it with Tea Tree essential oil in a 20:1 ratio shall reduce the camphoraceous scent of Tea Tree which may be too overpowering for some people. This blend can be added into several of your home cleaning products to effectively clean the floor and kitchen surfaces, drains, garbage chutes, etc.
How many lemons does it take to make 1ml of Lemon essential oil?
While it depends on the size of the lemons and extraction methods, it takes about 3-5 lemons to produce 1 mL of Lemon essential oil (obtained by cold pressing the peels of the lemon fruit).
Is Lemon essential oil phototoxic?
The lemon oil that is cold pressed from the peels of the fruit is phototoxic, but is also therapeutically superior and possesses the strong, fresh scent that Lemon is known for.
On the other hand, the lemon oil that is steam distilled from the fruit is not phototoxic, but lacks the same aroma associated with lemon and its therapeutic benefits.
While buying Lemon essential oil, it is important to always check the part of the plant used and its extraction method.
