This fruit is known since antiquity. Pliny the Elder called it the “Assyrian apple”.
It comes from South-East Asia.
Our citron is mainly grown and produced in Calabria, but it also grows wild in many Indian areas.
The essential oil is obtained by cold-pressing its thick, rugged, bumpy peel.
It has a sweet, flowery, citrus aroma.
Quantity: 8 ml
It is used as a bug repellant, similar to lemongrass.
In China and Japan, it is used to perfume rooms and clothes in wardrobes.
It is hard to find therapeutic indications in the literature.
Home diffuser: add between 3 and 6 drops to 100 ml of water
Bathtub: emulsify 8-10 drops of essential oil with coarse salt — or alternatively milk, cream, or honey — to add to the hot water (so that the oil doesn’t evaporate due to the heat)
Food: we recommend 1-2 drops per 100 gr of food, to add after cooking (we suggest to always start with the lower dose and then increase it later, if preferred)
Caution: do not use in case of chronic diseases, pregnancy, or when breastfeeding.
If in doubt, please consult your doctor/naturopath.
