Start your day with the mood-boosting, highly energizing Lemon Essential Oil!

Lemon essential oil is a completely natural ingredient that also serves as a home remedy. It’s extracted from the peel of fresh lemons through steam extraction, or less often, through a “cold-pressing” process that pricks and rotates the peel as oil is released.

Lemon essential oil can be diluted and applied topically to your skin, as well as diffused into the air and inhaled. Some people swear by this oil as an ingredient that fights exhaustion, helps with mood enhancing, clears your skin, and cleans in depth.

Due to its cleansing properties, lemon essential oil is perfect for toning and clarifying your skin. It is ideal for diffusing and also makes a great natural disinfectant for your home. Known to help fight stress, Lemon Essential Oil is packed with Vitamin C and antioxidants to help boost your well being.

Using essential oils on pets:
The ability to tolerate essential oils is dependent on many factors, including plant species, product, dose, and route of application. Essential oil use cases show the most significant risk of toxicity is from direct skin application on your pet’s skin – these same cases also share that a large volume was applied directly and neat (pure without a carrier) to the pet’s skin. Knowing that there is a risk in using these oils to your pet’s fur or skin, we strongly recommend consultation with your veterinarian or animal care specialist prior to applying or exposure to any of our products.

If you’ve chosen to use essential oils around your pet, we first recommend taking note of your pets behavior, contacting your vet with any concerns, and the below list of Rūt products that we feel are the most pet-friendly:

Single note essential oils:

• Chamomile

• Frankincense

• Clary Sage

• Geranium

• Rosemary

Should you choose to use your ultrasonic diffuser in the presence of your pet, we recommend:

• Using only small amounts of essential oils. 1-5 drops are our recommendation

• Ensure the space is well ventilated with a window open slightly for fresh air

• Always keep a door open so that the animal can enter and exit the room easily

• Take note of how your pet responds at all times and if you notice your pet resisting an aroma, discontinue use and move them to a well-ventilated space

• Be particularly mindful of pets that are in cages or enclosed spaces (including birds and small rodents) as they cannot leave the room if they become uncomfortable
