Organic lemon oil
What can I say about organic lemon oil? Let me know oil is amazing and I use it all the time. This oil smells amazing taste amazing since it is organic and you can put a drop of it in your glass or stainless steel water bottle mixing it with water. It’s excellent for your face mixed with your moisturizer lotion or your carrier oil. It smells amazing and fresh and very very pure like there’s a lemon peel in this bottle . I recommend this oil.

Love it.
I recently started yoga class and the instructor would use lemon oil as part of the relaxation part. I deal with high anxiety levels and thought I would try it in my diffuser at home. I love it! I put a couple more drops and then recommended but this is one of oil I plan on keeping in my home.

Wonderful Oil!
I'm so happy that Rocky Mountain Oils is adding organic essential oils to their collection. I do enjoy using lemon essential oil, and now that they offer it certified organic, I will never go back to another blend. The scent is amazing, and knowing that it's pure from the very beginning makes me feel really good about using it. I enjoy it in my diffuser blended with a little orange and geranium. Thanks, Rocky Mountain Oils!

Is this digestible? Can I add a few drop to my water to drink? TIA!
TERRI on Dec 19, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Essential oils are very potent and can be dangerous if not used correctly.

All of our oils are 100% pure, natural, and authentic. However, we cannot provide dosing suggestions or directions on how to ingest if you choose to do so.

If you do choose to ingest the oils, we suggest consulting an Aromatherapist or trusted health professional for guidance.

A few years ago I ordered the lemon essential oil. I remember reading that it had a ton of vitamin c in it and I use to add it to my water. I don’t see it on your website any longer. Just wondering what happened to it as the one you have now is not for consumption. Is Rocky Mountain oils under new ownership since then? Thanks

Why don't you mention phototoxicity on the label? I think you should since you have labeled it for topical use!!!
A shopper on Jan 15, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Good question! At this time we do not have photo-toxic warnings on our labels. However, we do have photo-toxic warnings on the product page itself.

What is the difference between organic and your regular oils?
A shopper on Aug 6, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Great question! All of our oils are 100% pure and organically grown. However, we had a lot of customer requests to get our oils USDA certified as Organic so we now offer certification for some of our oils. The certification process is long and expensive which is why we do not put all of our oils through it. We are planning to add more oil to our Organic line in the future.

If this is organic what does that mean regarding your "non-organic" oils... are there pesticides or man-made elements in them?
A shopper on Mar 2, 2018
BEST ANSWER: The other oils we carry that are not certified organic, are still grown with organic practices. All of our oils go through extensive GC/MS and pesticide testing through a third party and are required to pass these tests or we will not sell them.

Thanks! -RMO Team
