Response from Rocky Mountain Oils
Hello Michele!

Thank you for your feedback. We're sorry to hear that you're unhappy with the Lemon Essential Oil. We do not use fillers, synthetics, or fragrance enhancers; the oils will remain true to their natural aroma. We generally recommend 5-10 drops of E.O. per 100 ml of water when diffusing. Feel free to play with it and find what works best for you. If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to reach out.

Thanks!

One of the reviewers states that your lemon oil is mixed with coconut oil. Is this true? I can't see anything about it in the description. Thanks!
A shopper on Mar 13, 2018
BEST ANSWER: All of our single oils are undiluted. The Lemon is straight Lemon with no carrier oil base, or any additives. Some of our blends have a base of Fractionated Coconut Oil (FCO), but, this will be listed in the ingredients.

can i use this oil on my skin?
natasha s on Oct 16, 2020
BEST ANSWER: Hello!

Lemon Essential Oils is great for the skin and can absolutely be used topically. For topical application we recommend a 2-5% dilution rate which would be 3-7 drops of essential oil per 1 teaspoon of carrier oil. You are welcome to use a 2% dilution rate for caution, however, we would still recommend testing the oil on a small patch of skin before applying it to a larger area.

Is it safe for pets? I am going to add it to my homemade cleaning recipe.
A shopper on Aug 13, 2019

BEST ANSWER: Rocky Mountain Oils feels that essential oils are very potent and can be dangerous if not used correctly. We recommend using oils topically and through diffusion. For additional uses, we suggest consulting an Aromatherapist or trusted health professional for guidance.
Dear RMO, my name is Dorothy. Can you please tell me if you carry the Lemon oil in a larger size? And I would like the Lavender oil in larger sizes also. One more thing, what is the difference in the Lavenders? Thank you, Sincerely, Dorothy
Dorothy M on May 8, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Unfortunately at this time we do not carry any Lemon or Lavender in a larger size of 15ml.

The difference between Lavender Bulgaria and Lavender Greece is the smell, the Lavender Bulgaria smells more earthy whereas the Lavender Greece has more of a floral scent. I would recommend looking into Lavadin for a larger size. We would love to address any further questions you may have if you would like to send us an email to Support@rockymountainoils.com

Thanks!
