The Plant

The lemon tree is a small thorny tree with highly perfumed little flowers. It is native to India although now grown through Southern Europe and Florida and California.

Affects

When used in skincare lemon essential oil brightens the complexion and cleanses the skin. This same cleansing action is useful for shampoos and reducing greasy hair.

History
