How do I make lemon smell?

The smell of fresh lemon is one of the greatest in the world. A lemon is made up of 70% water, so it is no wonder that when you extract the tart, tangy flavor from a lemon, it leaves behind a citrusy, fresh aroma.

However, if you want to make lemon scent, you will need to extract the lemon scent from the lemon itself. The easiest way to do this is to use a lemon extract.

The method that I have here is so simple that anyone could follow, you will need: A lemon, dew-drenched gauze, and a tablespoon of lemon extract.

If you want your lemon to smell like the real deal, that is. This method really works. Although you can create artificial lemon smell by using lemon extract, this doesn’t smell as authentic as the real deal.

So if you want to get that authentic lemon smell, you need to use real lemons.

Make your own Citrus Candles

There are actually types of citrus oils, which have different properties. The oils are derived from the rind of the lemon, lime, orange, or grapefruit fruit.

Citrus oils are natural, biodegradable, and are found in many popular products such as candles, soaps, diffusers, and even air fresheners.

If you love making homemade candles, you know that you need quality ingredients to create the best scented candles.

Citrus essential oils are easily obtained, but they are expensive, especially the essential oils that you will use for making the wax for the candle.
