All 3 of our Luscious Lemons under one roof. In Amber Bottle, we have our Therapeutic Range, offering amazing value for money, and knock out aroma. Green Glass boasts our Soil Association Certified Organic Basil. Organic oil producers who put their heart and soul into their oils & this is reflected in the overall quality.

Our Therapeutic grade oil is an Italian Stallion. Powerful and packed with Citrus notes. You won’t find better for the price. With our outstanding Organic Oil, we found the Godfather of all oil growers and he really is in Sicily and genuinely called Corleone. In Films, the Corleone family produced olive oil whereas our friend is a fourth-generation grower of the finest Citrus oils we have ever seen.
The Company was founded in the late nineteenth century and produces these luscious lemon oils in its time-honored way. Grown in Palermo we carefully select from the September to June crops to ensure the best quality. Select is our premium range so we ventured to California, regarded as the home of top quality citrus oils and this luscious Lemon, is a beautiful example of the very high standards they have achieved. You will love this oil. So, light, uplifting and refreshing yet has an underlying depth to its top note. And the colour! Quite unusual in that it is yellow to a very pale green.
There are lots of great growers around the world but this Lemon is up there with the very best. Said to be good to combat infection and is often used to reduce the build-up of uric acid associated with gout. Many use it for warts and verruca’s, especially if added with tea tree and Manuka to make an antiseptic wash. Good for coughs and colds when vaporised and lemon usually used via inhalation or in massage blends.

So fresh and lemony, and really a pleasure to have in my arsenal! Following the safety precautions for each essential oil this is one of the many must have`s from MNG in my stash. I use it in cleaning and in my spot remover soaps. Can`t be without it!
