Lemon essential oil is highly irritating to the skin, and if you use
this and go out into the sun you can get a hellacious sunburn.
Phototoxicity I think its called ..........
Don't use it . It hurts.

If you want the rant on what terps are useful in essential oils, go
to the link below.

If you're wondering, I'm still in a low orbit and nowhere near
touching down, but I've found some amazing material on henna in the
context of suicide through the medieval period, further verification
of henna in Minos, Cyclades, and Mycenae ..... and just possibly the
Etruscans, as well as verification of medieval Arab use of indigo to
stain fingers rather than henna.........! And ........ hennaed hair
for executioners!
