Citrus Essential Oils are among the few Essential Oils with a limited shelf life. Keep your citrus oils away from heat and direct sunlight, and in tightly closed containers; your fridge would be great! Try using them within 6 months of purchase. Older oils may not be appropriate for medicinal or skin care purposes, but can still add citrus-power to a diffuser blend.
History:When peeling a citrus fruit, you may experience the Essential Oil freely spraying from the peel when applying pressure. Squirting the Essential Oil into a candle flame is a nice winter activity that fascinates children (and those that remained young) for long periods of time
Before the juice of citrus fruits is processed, the peel of the fruits are carefully removed and the Essential Oil extracted from the glands contained in the outer layer of the peel. This is the process behind the term "cold pressed" and it is obvious that any chemical deposits applied to the skin of the fruit during conventional farming may leech into the oil. If you are using citrus Essential Oil for skin care or cooking, we strongly recommend our certified organic citrus Essential Oils.
Specific Safety Information:No known toxicity. GRAS (Generally Regarded As Safe) approved by the FDA as food flavor.
Use in low concentration in skin care since some individuals may react sensitive. Avoid exposing the skin to direct sunlight after using this oil in skin care – phototoxic effect possible, though less likely than with other citrus oils.
