    I found plenty on Google.

    And I would imagine such a product would probably have instructions and warnings on it.

    According to Google, its an orange peel extract used as an ingredient in many citrus based cleaners. But it depends on the distillation of it and what other chemicals are in the cleaners how toxic the individual cleaner is. From the range I saw that could be from pet shampoo to car cleaner. If you're using it straight, yeah, its probably going to burn.

    Yeah thats exactly what I found before posting here.....I'm just looking for info on diLimonene by itself.
    Can anyone find info using an alternative to Google as obviously that is not where it can be found.
    Link/websites if possible, thanks !

    How about going to the website of the company that made the solvent containing the extract?

    Or calling Poison Control if Canada has that system.

    I'm hoping to find something a little more unbiased....like a study or "fact sheet" of the health risks or the like.

    Best I can do is a quote from an article about it that's contained in a discussion about it here.
