It’s important to use lemon essential oil with caution on the skin, as it can be photosensitive, meaning it may increase sensitivity to sunlight. Avoid direct sunlight or ultraviolet (UV) exposure after applying lemon oil to the skin. Dilution with a carrier oil is recommended, and a patch test should be performed, especially for those with sensitive skin. Pregnant women and individuals with specific health conditions should consult with a healthcare professional before using lemon essential oil. If any adverse reactions occur, discontinue use.
