Product Description: The Lemon tree was originally a small thorny evergreen tree native to India. It is now common in Southern Europe, Florida, California in the United States, Mexico in Central America, and Argentina and Brazil in South America. The Greeks and Romans were advocates of its properties as a cleanser, and Lemons themselves reached the height of fame when the British Navy began using citrus fruits to counteract the effects of scurvy. This particular oil has a sweet and less herbaceous fragrance.
