WHAT ARE ESSENTIAL OILS?
Sometimes referred to as ethereal or volatile oils, essential oils are basically aromatic compounds found in plants or trees and carry the actual essence or fragrance from which they are extracted. It is being looked upon as the next frontier since the age of antibiotics is already towards its end. They are said to have multiple health benefits as antibacterial, antiseptic, and antiviral, without the side effects of bacterial resistance developing.
Lemon Essential Oil has earned the nickname “Liquid Sunshine” and 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.
✔️ 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 scurvy and vitamin deficiencies.

Conduct a Patch Test:
Never assume that essential oil has the same properties as the plant it came from. To do this, apply a little diluted essential oil to your inner arm. Watch carefully for redness or irritation that develops either immediately or within as long as twenty-four hours; if it occurs, do not use the essential oil.
