What is it when a citrus oil is cloudy?
This is normal for expressed and is the waxes in the oil. It is actually a sign that the lemon is natural and the waxes help to keep the citrus oils. This is why you don't put citrus oils in the frig, as the waxes will fall to the bottom. It is a difficult one to control, as it's hot out, but at high altitude in the jet it is cold. All in all the Lemon will be fine. The question to ask is how's the Aroma?
