Grown in warm and sunny regions, this yellow lemon offers us its original essence, produced in the cells of its outer shell and obtained simply by cold pressing. For convenience, it is called Organic Lemon Oil, but it is an essence, not an essential oil, because of this method of extraction specific to citrus fruits. A fruit that has been known for a long time, its essence will appeal to you.
