Lemon Oil possibly has the most powerful anti-microbial activity of all the essential oils.

Lemon trees are native to Asia and were used by not only ancient Indians but also Egyptians and Romans to treat infectious diseases. Lemon trees are believed to have been brought to Europe in the Middle Ages around 200 A.D. and eventually made their way from the Middle East to North Africa and eventually, Christopher Columbus introduced them to America.
At this time, due to their antiseptic and anti-bacterial properties, English sailors in the Royal Navy also often used them while sailing to protect themselves against the ravages of scurvy and vitamin deficiencies.

Due to its yellow color, refreshing scent, ability to purify, and for the burst of energy that it provides, Lemon Essential Oil has earned the nickname “Liquid Sunshine.” Lemon Oil possibly has the most powerful anti-microbial activity of all the essential oils.

The name Lemon is derived from either the Arabic word “laimun” or the Persian word “limun,” both meaning “citrus fruit.” Small and evergreen, Lemon trees are considered to be a cross between Bitter Orange and Citron and were originally grown for decorative purposes with the fruit remaining on the tree. Once the fruit’s resourcefulness was discovered, it began to be cultivated.
Both the fruit and the essential oil have been used in Ayurvedic medicine for thousands of years to treat a vast range of health issues.

Lemon Essential Oil is used today in perfumery, in culinary practices, and to relieve mental exhaustion while improving cognitive function and concentration.
For this reason, Lemon Oil is diffused in workplaces in order to improve employee focus and efficiency and to reduce the number of errors.
