Lemon essential oil is one of the favourite ingredients in the natural skincare products made by Ene Naturals because of its amazing properties. It is an antiseptic as such treats infections and it’s vitamin C rich content makes it a powerful tool for combating free radicals, acne and dark spots. Lemon oil is a great disinfectant and also a good repellent against insects.
Its energetic and invigorating scent makes it a great mood enhancer while its disinfecting and antiseptic property makes it ideal for treating dandruffs.
It’s ability to clear dark spots is what makes it ideal for skin brightening as when added to lotions, enhances their ability for an even skin tone.
Lemon oil helps to reduce excess oil from the skin. However, it is not advised to be applied topically to the skin as it makes the skin sensitive or photo-sensitive when exposed to sunlight. It is therefore recommended that lemon oil be diluted in carrier oils before being applied to the skin.
Lemon oil is also not ideal for children under five years of age because of its sensitivity. Little kids have very delicate, sensitive skin that is not ideal for lemon oil to be applied on. So please when buying natural skincare products for your kids, look out for lemon oil and make sure it is not listed on the ingredients list.
