Lemon Organic Essential Oil


 Lemon or citrus limonium, part of the rutaceae family, is native to the Far East. First introduced in Europe, in the Mediterranean basin along the Silk Road in the Middle Ages, it is now cultivated all over the Mediterranean. By distillating its rinds, we obtain a lemon essential oil of bright-yellow to pale-green color with a fresh and acidulous aroma which is praised mainly for its digestive virtues. It also has other properties: hepatic and nervous system tonic, antibacterial, antiseptic and virus-killer.
