The essential oil of Lemon Leaves or Petit Grain Citronnier (Citrus Limon), a symbol of authenticity and straightforwardness, has a warm yet refreshing nature.
The Ministry of Health recognises Citrus x limon’s beneficial effects on digestive function and gastrointestinal motility. Carminative.
In aromatherapy it is used as an antiseptic and anti-inflammatory, for example against arthritis, rheumatism, and muscle inflammation.
Lemon leaf essential oil is used as an ingredient in face masks (e.g. mixed with clay) and is known to have an astringent and toning effect on acne.
Very good in cooking, the distillation of the twigs and unripe fruits gives this particular oil all the green notes of the citrus fruit, it is used extensively in liqueur and confectionery, but is also excellent on other dishes such as fish, try it in its Essentia Spray version.
In subtle aromatherapy it is used to restore vital energy, to combat anxiety, depression, and insomnia.
When diffused into the air it refreshes and cleanses it of pollution.
- Room diffuser: a few drops in 100 ml of water. We suggest combining it with other essential oils.
- Bath: A few drops of essential oil emulsified in coarse salt, milk, cream, or honey in hot water (prevents the oil from evaporating due to the heat).
Warnings: Do not use in case of chronic diseases, during pregnancy and breastfeeding. If in doubt, consult a doctor/pharmacist/herbalist.
