Lemon essential oil has a strong, fresh smell and is extracted from the peel of fresh lemon fruit by cold expression. This oil is refreshing to the mind and sharpens concentration, which is why it is often preferred in air fresheners for offices and banks. It is believed to help with rheumatism, arthritis and gout. It has been used to cure skin problems such as abscesses, boils, carbuncles and acne. Boosts the immune system and cleanses the body.

When used in an oil burner (a few drops in water), lemon oil vapors are used for colds, laryngitis, headaches and flu . Smelling the aroma is useful for mental hiccups such as depression, irritation, stress, lethargy and fatigue. Lifts the spirits and clears the mind. When a few drops are added to a bath or mixed with a massage oil, it is said to relieve digestive problems, lack of energy, fatigue, infections, obesity, rheumatism, depression and stress. It is also used to help get rid of hangovers.

The lemon plant is native to India and perhaps China, and was brought to Europe by the Crusaders in the Middle Ages . Since the fruit has a good amount of vitamins A, B and C, one ounce a day was given to sailors to prevent scurvy, eye problems and other vitamin deficiencies. The first real lemon cultivation in Europe began in Genoa in the mid-15th century. It was later introduced to America by Christopher Columbus. The Spanish conquests helped spread lemon seeds further. Lemon was used mainly as a decoration and as medicine. It was only much later that he began to be used in the kitchen.
