Lemon Tea Tree Essential Oil possesses a sweet, lemony aroma that is even more fragrant and intense than cold pressed Lemon Essential Oil. Lemon Tea Tree Essential Oil is abundant in citral (citral is comprised of geranial and neral), making the essential oil especially beneficial when incorporated into diffuser blends, sprays and other products intended to support the respiratory and immune systems and to support overall wellness.

When carefully used at minute dilutions within skin care applications, Lemon Tea Tree Essential Oil can be helpful in formulations intended for oily skin.

With it's sweet, lemony aroma, Lemon Tea Tree Essential Oil also helps to combat odors and is also a highly beneficial ingredient when incorporated into surface cleaners and other household cleaning products.

Customer Testimonial

"I just wanted to write to say thank you. I have been purchasing products from your Web site for quite a while, namely rice bran, seaweed powders, camellia oil, dead sea salts and most recently, shea butter. I have very sensitive skin, and there aren't many products on the market that I don't develop a nasty rash from. I'm a research chemist, and many ingredients in mass market products are petrochemically derived. Although the by products may be trace, it is still enough to agitate my skin. It is also important for me to select products that do not have a vile effect on the environment. I ran an online search for rice bran to use as a gentle face wash and stumbled across FNWL. I was absolutely delighted with the delicate cleansing and calming effect it had on my face. Most recently, the shea butter I purchased has completely healed the eczema on my knees. I wanted to say thank you. Your product quality and prices are absolutely superb. "
