Uses and Benefits of Poya Lemon Essential Oil
Lemon Essential Oil has a strong, purifying, citrus scent that is uplifting and revitalising. Limonene is the naturally occurring chemical constituent within Lemon Essential Oil that gives it its distinct lemony aroma.
It has been used as a beauty aid for millennia, cleansing and clarifying the skin and hair. It is a disinfectant, and as a gentle solvent, enhances the cleaning solutions in which it is used as well as leaves a fresh scent.
This clear, slightly greenish oil has a thin consistency and is used as a top note in perfumes. Lemon Essential Oil has been cold-pressed from the peel of this thorny little evergreen which, though native to India, is now cultivated worldwide. Its addition to waters and lotions have helped to tone, cleanse, and brighten the skin, scalp, and hair as well as treating acne, cuts, and boils.
