- Lemon is a photosensitive oil which means exposure to sunlight should be avoided when using it, particularly in the first few hours after use. Avoid in massage blends if the skin is over sensitive. Use a maximum of 3 drops in aromatherapy baths. Lemon can have a temporary bleaching effect on some skins (spot test if in doubt).
