Oils to Blend with
Lemon is a very useful oil when using in blends. It will blend with any essential oil - the only trick deciding upon the amount to blend. If you have a blend which seems to be lacking in lust or simply smells over confused, adding some lemon can tie the blend together creating a rounded and often very sophisticated smelling blend.
Precautions
Flammable.
Do not use during pregnancy.
Keep away from children and eyes.
Do not take internally or apply undiluted to the skin.
