If you are interested in owning your own lemon oil, make sure it is 100% pure, therapeutic grade A. You do not want to accidentally drink chemicals and other additives in your oil if it is not bought with the right intention. If you are ingesting oil, please make sure it is 100% pure. The FDA does not regulate essential oils, thus enabling companies to label something 'pure' when it is not in fact PURE.
