The lemon fruit was first cultivated in Asia and eventually found its way to America by way of Christopher Columbus who brought lemon seeds with him and planted them. The lemons were used in Asian society as an antidote for various poisons and because they had discovered its antibacterial properties. Seamen learned that fresh lemons saved them from getting scurvy. Because of its very distinctive sour taste, lemon juice and lemon rind (zest) are now commonly used in cooking and baking worldwide.

Lemon essential oil should be added to your aromatherapy pharmacy because of its antiseptic and antibacterial properties. Purify your drinking water by adding a drop of lemon essential oil. Put it in diet drinks to help counteract the effects of artificial sweeteners. It can also be used to treat verrucas (plantar warts,) insect bites and tension headaches. Lemon essential oil has a tonic action on the lymphatic system and a stimulating action on the digestive system. It can be used to help with weight loss, to disperse cellulite, and to keep your skin smooth. It is an excellent ingredient for synergistic blends and as a fragrancing and flavoring agent.
