Citrus limon or lemon is a plant from Rutaceae family. It bears highly aromatic white or pink flowers and tiny fruits that are used in almost every corner of the world for its juice and many culinary purposes. The lemon tree can measure up to 6 metres in height, prefers warm temperate regions, and grows in acidic soil. It is native to South-East Asia region, mainly the Indian subcontinent.
Ecodrop’s Organic Lemon essential oil is extracted from the peel of lemon fruit, grown organically in Italy and certified under strict Soil Association Organic Standards. To obtain the best quality oil, near to ripe (green) lemons are picked from the tree and stored, maintaining a PH value of 2.2 until they become yellow. This process increases the concentration of oil in the peel glands. The fruits are then peeled and sent for cold-pressing, which yields a thin yellowish-green liquid, which is filtered for use.
