DESCRIPTION

Lemon essential oil is cold pressed from the lemon rinds, or peel of the lemon. Cold pressing is an expression distillation process, typically used for citrus oils when producing essential oils, and uses high mechanical pressure to produce oil from the lemon rind. While other distillation processes use heat, the process of cold pressing merely squeezes the oil from the rind, with the help of mechanical pressure.

Lemon oil is comprised of chemicals called monoterpenes, which are generally known to have uplifting characteristics. Limonene and beta-Pinene are two monoterpenes that Lemon Oil has in common with other essential oils, like Bergamot, Wild Orange, Grapefruit, Lime, and Douglas Fir.
