Lemon oil is often used in cleaning agents, as it quickly and easily dissolves sticky residues and can clean away difficult grime. Topically, it improves the appearance of clogged pores and grimy skin. Aromatically, lemon has powerful uplifting properties. Diffuse, add to cleaning agents, apply directly to difficult-to-clean areas, or apply in 2-5% dilution.
The fruit was well known in Europe by the middle ages.
