Lemon Historical Snippets:

Lemon oil may arguably be one of the most versatile essential oils, having been used in foods, skincare, perfumery, cleaning products and for health. Lemons date as far back as to 90 BC, where they were first mentioned in Jerusalem. In 1747, a study by Scottish physician James Lind showed that the citrus of two oranges and a lemon treated seamen suffering from scurvy. Maude Grieve dubbed lemons as the most valuable fruit for preserving one’s health. Since this, scientific studies have emerged proving that the oil may be even more beneficial than the fruit.

Shelf Life of Lemon Essential Oil: 

Our freshly decanted Lemon essential oil will last for 1-2 years minimum from when you open your amber glass bottle if stored correctly:

Primary Storage Considerations:

Keep away from direct light (U.V. radiation)

Keep in the amber glass bottle with lid tightly closed. Only open when you need to and decant into a smaller "working" amber glass bottle if possible (and label so you know what is in it). This is to reduce oxidation.

Secondary Storage Considerations:

Keep in a refrigerator at around 4 degrees celsius.

Safety summary
Hazards: Skin sensitization if oxidized; phototoxic (low risk)
Contraindications: If applied to skin at over maximum use level, skin must not be exposed to sunlight or sunbed rays for 12 hours.
Cautions: Old or oxidized oils should be avoided.
Maximum dermal level: 2.0%

Safety advice
Because of the (+)-limonene content, it's recommended that oxidation of lemon oil should be avoided by storage in a dark, airtight container in a refrigerator. The addition of antioxidants is recommended.
