Profile

Citrus limon is an evergreen tree standing about 20 ft in height. It has thorns and dark green serrated oval leaves with pink/white highly perfumed flowers. Its fruit matures from green to yellow on ripening. It has been suggested that the tree is a combination of the Indian Lime and possibly the Pummelo. The Lemon fruit rind is cold pressed to create a fresh, crisp, sharp lemon scent. The color of the oil is yellow to light green. Lemon Cold Pressed Essential Oil has a light, fresh, citrus scent. The AUROMA Lemon Cold Pressed variety smells like freshly scraped lemon peel, sharp and green, not powdery, like inferior Lemon Essential Oils from many essential oil distributors. 

Lemon oil is high in Vitamins A, B and C, and contains antioxidant, cleansing and purifying properties.

FACT: English ships were required by law to carry sufficient lemon or lime juice for every seaman to have once daily after being at sea for ten days or more. The Romans used Lemon rind to ward off insects, as well as freshen their clothes.

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 cool 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.

To meet the stringent demands of the professional aromatherapist, AUROMA has drafted the following seven requirements that an essential oil needs to meet so it can be used with confidence:

  1. BIO-TYPE: Not only does an oil have to come from a defined botanical species, but from a particular genetic strain.
  2. CHEMO-TYPE: The same botanical species can often produce completely different constituents.
  3. GEO-TYPE: Oils from a particular area are often of superior quality. Examples are Rose Oil Bulgarian or Sandalwood East Indian.
  4. COMPLETE OR WHOLE: The oil should come from a single distillation and should not be rectified.
  5. WILD OR ORGANIC: Where possible, AUROMA always selects the wild growing plants for distillation. When wild types are not available, AUROMA commissions farmers who do not use pesticides or chemical fertilizers. Certified Organic options are available.
  6. EX STILL: AUROMA distills small lots of expensive oils in-house and advises farmers on distillation methods.
  7. ANALYYSIS: Oils are tested by AUROMA in Australia with the most advanced state-of- the-art equipment in the world.
