Because lemon essential oil contains a high concentration of limonene and other natural chemicals, it is thought to have skin-brightening qualities.
Remember that essential oils are strong and should be applied sparingly.
Here’s a basic recipe for creating skin-brightening lemon essential oil:
1. Garden-varnished lemons
2. Carrier oil, such as jojoba, almond, or olive oil
3. An airtight jar or glass container
4. A zester or grater
5. A fine sieve or cheesecloth
6. A dark glass storage bottle
