100% Certified Lemon Organic Essential Oil
The origin of the lemon is a mystery, though it is thought that lemons first grew in Southern India, northern Burma, and China. A study of the genetic origin of the lemon reported that it is a hybrid between sour orange and citron.
Lemons entered Europe near southern Italy no later than the 1st century AD, during the time of Ancient Rome. However, they were not widely cultivated. They were later introduced to Persia and then to Iraq and Egypt around 700 AD. The lemon was first recorded in literature in a 10th century Arabic treatise on farming, and was also used as an ornamental plant in early Islamic gardens. It was distributed widely throughout the Arab world and the Mediterranean region between 1000 and 1150. [Source: Wikipedia]
The lemon was well known in Europe by the middle ages, and Greeks and Romans were advocates of its therapeutic properties. Lemon essential oil reached the height of its fame when the British began using the citrus fruit to counteract the effects of scurvy.
Our supplier of these 100% Certified Organic essential oils is a company absolutely committed to purity. During inhalation of a pure essential oil, you are inhaling the very consciousness of the plant. The intelligence or rather the energetic vibration of the plant unites with the intelligence within each of us. It is through this energetic unification that healing takes place.
