LEMON ESSENTIAL OIL
Lemon, a fruit in which sunshine would be captured. The zesty aroma just bursts with vibrancy, tickling the soul like a beam of sunlight. The smell of Lemon oil instantly reminds us of sunny climes and spreads a little bit of Mediterranean ambiance.
It is believed to have originated in India or Southeast Asia, spreading at first to China. From there it found its way to the Arab world and the Roman Empire. Lemons were well known even in England by the Middle Ages. Yet, their true value as a life-saving anti-scorbutic remedy was not realised until the age of the great sea voyages. It was discovered by sailors who had access to lemons did not fall prey to scurvy. Hence, it became a standard provision to carry Lemons on every long-term sea journey, which is the reason why British sailors became known as 'limeys'.
The attractive citrus trees with their sweet-scented flowers became very popular with the aristocracy and it became fashionable to grow them far beyond their natural range during the renaissance. Special conservatories had to be built just to shelter the sensitive trees from the harsh northern European winters. Columbus introduced Lemons to the New World by taking some seeds and planted them in Hispaniola. Some scholars believe that Lemons might have been the 'Golden Apples of the Hesperides'. Others favour peaches - the final verdict on this question is still to be decided. Lemons, along with Myrtle, Willow and Palm, play a role in the Jewish festivities of the Tabernacle. In Jewish tradition Lemons symbolise the heart.
