The History of Lemon
The Lemon is likely to have originated in the Mediterranean Basin, resulting from a cross between a bitter orange and a lime type citrus, around the 5th century BC. The lemon tree was widely used as an ornamental plant, especially in the Middle Ages and was gradually introduced as a food seasoning, just like vinegar might have been used. Due to its high acidity, it has also been used since ancient times to preserve meat. Spain and Italy are currently the 2 largest European producers of lemons. In France, Lemons are the centrepiece of the annual Lemon Festival in Menton, which has been held in the Alpes-Maritimes since 1875.
Lemon essential oil is known for its stimulating and energising properties, it is used to give a little boost, and its toning action can have a postive on the mind as well as on the body. It is also used to purify and rebalance. It can be used to enhance concentration or general fatigue.
It is also used to strengthen brittle nails.
