Lemon essential oil is extracted from the fruit of the lemon tree. This fruit tree is native to the vast steppe zone of Central Asia, north of the Himalayas. In this dry and sunny region, the oases inhabited by tribes of semi-sedentary nomads offered in ancient times the best conditions for growing useful plants such as the lemon tree, thanks to the abundance of water that could be found there. Soon the high civilizations of neighboring countries (Indians, Chinese and Persians) also discovered the refreshing fruits of the lemon tree and acquired knowledge about its cultivation and use. Greek and Roman traders brought the lemon tree from Persia to the West. Today it can be found throughout the Mediterranean area.
