Lemon was originally a small, thorny evergreen tree native to India. It is now commonly found in Southern Europe, Florida and California. Historically, Lemon has been used as a cleanser in Europe and other parts of the world due to its recognized antiseptic properties. Lemon essential oil is known as being refreshing and cooling, and it also enhances mental concentration. Lemon essential oil is great as an air purifier and it supports healthy respiratory function and aids in the digestion process.
