About Lemon
Lemon trees were first cultivated in China, then to southern Europe, and finally made their way to the Americas as early as the arrival of Columbus in the 1400s.  The fruit has long been associated with freshness and cleanliness and now its aroma is advertised by many products with terms like 'Lemon scented' to entice buyers.  Many essential oils are produced by distillation but Lemon and other citrus oils come from cold pressing the peel under great pressure.  This eliminates the use of any heat and thereby preserves the delicacy of the natural essence.  Italy is one of the best sources forthe essential oil, Lemon.
DōTerra Lemon Essential Oil is from the botanical family cultivar, grown in Italy and expressed from the peel of the fruit.

Precautions:  Can be a skin irritant over time.  Use a skin test.  May react to sunlight or UV rays.  When using photosensitizing oil, wait a minimum of six hours before exposing skin to UV rays.  The stronger and more lengthy the UV ray, the longer the wait should be.
