Lemon Fragrance OilLemon Fragrance Oil – Fragrance Oil Spotlight

Lemon Fragrance Oil from Nature’s Garden is the wonderfully fresh aroma of, you guessed it, lemon!  From high-end fragrances to kitchen cleaners, this tart citrus has been a staple in products that need a sharp, uplifting boost.  Nature’s Garden’s Lemon Fragrance Oil now incorporates a higher level of essential oil in order to accomplish a true lemon scent.  Lemons are incredibly versatile, as different parts of the lemon can be used in many different ways.  The rinds and flesh are used for culinary purposes, as garnishes and to add texture.  Lemon juice is distinctly sour, as it is comprised of roughly 5% citric acid.  This has led to popular sour foods such as lemonade and lemon meringue pie.  The acidic juice is also effective for removing tarnish from copper, removing stains, breaking down grease, and disinfecting surfaces.  People have enjoyed the many uses of lemons for years, but now you can enjoy the many uses of Lemon Fragrance Oil from Nature’s Garden.

How Do Our Customers Use Lemon Fragrance Oil?

This versatile fragrance oil can be used in a wide variety of products.  Lemon scent is frequently used in fresheners and cleaners, making this perfect for your scenting products which can incorporate up to 50% fragrance oil.  You can use this bright fragrance oil in reed diffusers, potpourri, or incense recipes.  This fragrance also creates strongly scented aroma beads.  Candles and wax tarts can be made using Lemon Fragrance Oil up to 10% with vegetable waxes and paraffin wax.  It works wonderfully in Joy Wax, Wow Wax, and soy waxes.  If you color your candles, we would recommend 8 drops of yellow liquid candle dye per 4 pounds of wax.  You can also color your melted wax with a small amount of yellow color blocks.  Crayons are never recommended to color your candles as they will clog your wick.

Homemade bath and body products truly shine when scented with this citrus aroma.  Bath gels, bath bombs, and oils will perform perfectly when the recommended maximum of 5% fragrance oil is used. Soap makers can use 5% fragrance oil in cp soap recipes and melt and pour soap recipes.  Our Cold Process Soap Testing Results show that soap made with this fragrance oil poured perfectly and retained a strong and true scent.  Cured bars of soap discolored to a yellow cream.  The soap experienced no ricing and no acceleration.  There was no separation. If you wish to color your bath and body products, we would recommend using yellow soap colorant in the amount that satisfies you.  As always, do not use candle dyes in your bath and body products as they will dye your skin.

Lemon Fragrance Oil can be used to create a wide variety of stimulating products.  Handmade perfumes and body sprays will smell delightful when you incorporate this fragrance in up to 3% of your recipe!  Lemon scented homemade lotions can also be created, using up to 3% fragrance oil.   Homemade cleaning supplies can also be created using a maximum fragrance usage of 5%.
