Unlike other extracts, Lemon Gemmotherapy Extract is prepared from the bark of young stems. Native to India and the Far East, the lemon tree is cultivated in Europe since 2000 years by the Romans. In 1747, the Scottish physician James Lind discovered its antiscorbutic properties so that it was embarked on ships to prevent this disease. It was later discovered that this action is linked to the fruit’s high vitamin C content.
The lemon is a small evergreen tree that can reach 30 to 36 feet (10 to 12 meters) in height. Its roots, initially taproots, cannot stand to be uncovered and then expand in depth. It grows well in ungreedy, dry and stony soils, but prefers calcareous soils. It is suitable for living in isolated, sunny locations. It is a very aromatic plant, its leaves, flowers and also the bark of its fruits provide different essential oils.
Historically, it is probably to the troops of Alexander the Great that we owe the introduction of Citrus to Babylon, from where they soon reached Europe Theophrastus (400 B.C.) made it a powerful anti-poison.
