The lemon tree was originally native to India but is now found in Southern Europe, Florida and California. Lemon oil has been historically recognized as a cleanser, and lemons themselves reached the height of fame when the British Navy began using citrus fruits to counteract the effects of scurvy. Now, lemon is well known for it’s ability to cleanse toxins from the body, to rejuvenate energy, purify skin and act as a bug repellant.
