Lemon oil was used by the Ancient Romans to counteract stomach upsets and to sweeten breath. Then the British Navy used it to prevent scurvy, malaria and typhoid on the ships at sea. Lemon is regarded as a ‘cure all’ oil, especially with regards to infectious illness. There are around 47 varieties of Lemon that have been developed in cultivation. Lemon is a tonic to the circularity system, liquefying the blood and aiding flow, thus easing pressure on the varicose veins. Lemon oil helps stop nose bleeds when used in a cold compress.
