Phototoxic Effects of Lemon Essential Oil

If this essential oil is to be used in a leave-on topical product (eg. body lotion, massage oil), the maximum concentration recommended by the International Fragrance Association (IFA) (bergamot, orange, mandarin, lemon, grapefruit) is up to 0.5%, depending upon concentration of terpenes.

For example, if you have 30 grams of skin lotion or carrier oil, up to a maximum of 1.5 grams of citrus essential oil is considered safe by the IFA*.

As with all essential oils, always dilute before using on the skin.

Never take essential oils internally unless under direct supervision from an aromatherapy practitioner. For more detailed safety information, please read our full article: Essential Oil Safety.
