Olfactive Description: Peely, Fruity, Floral, Green
Lemon essential oil is a juicy scent sure to boost your mood. Cold pressed from lemon peels originating in the United States, Brazil, or Argentina, this bright essential oil stands on its own and can serve as a top note in blends.
We recommend Lemon essential oil for use in candles, wax melts, tarts, and reed diffusers. It also makes citrus scented body products like bar soap, liquid soap, lotion, and scrubs.
Candle Maker’s Notes:
Overall, we found that Lemon essential oil to be a tricky product to work with in candles. First, this essential oil has a medium hot throw in candles, rating two leaves out of three on our soy performance scale. Testing can be difficult. We recommend not going over our recommended usage rate of 6%. We found candles had a nice lemon scent at 6%, but at 9% the hot throw transforms into an unpleasant scent. If you're seeking a strong, lemon fresh scent in soy wax with less trouble, we recommend trying Litsea Cubeba essential oil instead.
