INFORMATION AND USES: Lemon oil is fresh and zesty. It is full of a natural component called d-limonene. D-limonene is a Monoterpene, it is often found in oils with strong antimicrobial actions (Lang and Buchbauer 2012). D-limonene has significant antinociceptive activity (reduces the sensation of pain). Hirota et al. (2010) suggested this might be due to its considerable anti-inflammatory and antioxidant activities. Lemon oil is very useful for skin care. It has penetrating, astringent, antibacterial, and anti-inflammatory actions, which mean that it is particularly useful for acne and blemishes.
