Steam distilled Lemon is not phototoxic.

Lemon is one of the most easily recognized oils because of its refreshing, energizing and uplifting scent. It can help support a healthy immune system and is also frequently added to spray cleaners.

The thing that differentiates cold pressed Lemon from steam distilled Lemon is that steam distilled Lemon is not phototoxic. Therefore it can be used in body care products such as lotions and lip balms without having to worry about phototoxicity.

Diffuse equal amounts of Lemon and Peppermint in the morning or whenever you need an extra boost. To use for cleaning, add a few drops to your favorite cleaner to help refresh and sanitize. It is especially good added to some baking soda to make your bathroom or kitchen appliances sparkle!
The International Federation of Aromatherapists does not recommend that Essential Oils be taken internally unless under the supervision of a Medical Doctor who is also qualified in clinical Aromatherapy. All cautions listed for individual oils do not include those cautions from ingestion.

10 STARS if I could!

The moment I opened this bottle, I fell instantly in love--can one fall in love with an EO? I think so! Here's why: It has a remarkably fresh, crisp, and tangy lemony aroma I found myself wanting to do numerous things with it. Guess what? I was able to do so, as this outstanding oil not only has many brilliant benefits health and cleaning-wise, but it is also NOT phototoxic, as it is STEAM DISTILLED! It's phenomenal!

Yes! I was looking to make body butter with my favorite lemon oil but realized it was photo-toxic and was bummed.....until I saw THIS!! I quickly ordered it and hoped it would be all that I hoped it would. When it arrived I opened the bottle and the first wiff was HEAVEN!!!! It's light and sweet and reminds me of my favorite candy...LEMON HEADS! It's so uplifting and fresh smelling compared to the cold pressed lemon which is tart and more like lemon juice. Both are amazing oils but this might be my new favorite knowing it's NOT photo-toxic. THANKS PLANT THERAPY!!!!

Sharper than the cold pressed version

I got this because steam distilled citrus oils are supposed to be a lot less likely than cold pressed oils to contain any remaining impurities like pesticide residues, and they're also non-photo-toxic. I wasn't sure what difference to expect in the scent, but it seems that this, like the lime steam distilled, are sharper smelling and smell more like citrus leaves than the fruit peels to me. That's not a bad thing, it's just different and gives you more options for getting the benefits of these oils.
