Origins of Lemon
Early seafarers stocked up with fresh lemons before a long voyage to help prevent scurvy and to purify the ships drinking water. Its astringent and antiseptic properties were fully appreciated in the first aid kit and used to treat cuts, bruises and insect stings.
Description and Extraction Process
The lemon tree, which has white-pink flowers and bright yellow fruits, is cultivated in most Mediterranean countries, Brazil, USA, Argentina, Israel and Africa. The pale yellow oil is expressed from the rind and peel of the fruit and has classically been used in perfume for its intense, sharp, citrus-fresh aroma. The essence becomes cloudy and deteriorates over time, if not properly stored.
