What the heck is limonene?

Limonene is the major component in the oil of citrus fruit peels. It’s a compound naturally found in, yup, you guessed it lemons— in all citrus fruits to be exact. Limonene (named for its French namelimon) boasts a light, fresh, sweet citrus scent, and is used as a fragrance in cosmetics and personal care products, as well as added to foods to enhance flavor.

Limonene has been known to reduce inflammation and also has antioxidant properties.

Limonene is safe for skin application but can be a skin irritant for a small amount of people. It’s recommended to be used by anyone who does not have a known limonene sensitivity.
