A refreshing citrus oil that brings you a bit of the optimistic sunshine of its native Sicily. Too sour to taste, the fruit is cultivated purely for extracting the oil; that's how special it is. The "FCF" in the title means that a photo-sensitizing compound in the oil (common to citrus fruits) has been naturally removed in the steam distillation process - making the oil completely safe on the skin when exposed to the sun. Uses include:
• Aromatherapy | refreshing aroma and strong antidepressant effects clears away anxiety behaviour and stress very well; gives a feeling of optimism that opens one to act with positive confidence. • Skin & hair | antiseptic and antibacterial properties help neutralise bacterial growth that can lead to acne and stressed skin/scalp, promoting more natural radiance; it has a long tradition in Italy for disinfecting and healing minor wounds. • Massage | provides tension and muscle relief from anxiety.
