LEMON PEEL OIL, probably the best Refreshing and Uplifting therapeutic oil.

Updated: Jun 10, 2022

Lemon peel oil (Ctiron Limon) is derived from the Rutaceae family and also known as cedro oil (which refers to terpeneless oil). The rind of both ripe and unripe fruit is used to extract the oil by expression. The method of extracting this type of essential oil is cold-pressed expression, or scarification. It is used to obtain other citrus fruit oils such as bergamot, grapefruit, mandarin, orange, and tangerine oils. In this process, fruit rolls over a trough with sharp projections that penetrate the peel. This pierces the tiny pouches containing the essential oil. Then the whole fruit is pressed to squeeze the juice from the pulp and to release the essential oil from the pouches. The essential oil rises to the surface of the juice and is separated from the juice by centrifugation. Copyright ©2022.
