Green Lemon Herbal Oil is amongst the most affordable of Herbal oils and is routinely used for its energizing, fresh and cheerful aroma. It is well known in folklore for its ability to cleanse, purify and renew the spirit and the mind. It is also said to be effective in cleansing the aura.

Though it's not on my list of top therapeutic oils, Green Lemon Oil is one that I would be disappointed to live without. Its sweet yet tart, citrusy aroma blends well with so many other oils. Its aroma is especially concentrated, and a little goes a very long way. With the exception of floral Neroli Herbal Oil, cold pressed Green Lemon Herbal Oil is the most aromatically potent of the fruity citrus oils.

Including a few drops of Green Lemon Herbal Oil is a must when I create citrus blends for my diffuser or for when creating room mists.
