Caution:

  • Lemon, a citrus oil, is not compatible with plastic material and will cause the plastic to breakdown. Always use glass or stainless steel containers and straws.
  • Do not use Lemon oil on granite or stone, as it may affect the surface.
  • Stay away from the sun if using Lemon in your skincare products. Citrus oils can cause photosensitivity. That’s because compounds found in citrus oils—known as furanocoumarins—greatly increase UV sensitivity.
