This fresh, uplifting oil is cold pressed from organically grown lemons in Italy. Smelling this oil will have you wondering if you are actually standing in a grove surrounded by the most aromatic lemons imaginable. Lemon is known for improving concentration, clearing the mind and supporting decision making. Emotionally, it invites happiness and positive energy wherever it goes.
Lemon essential oil is also a must have if you are making your own DIY cleaning products as it will destroy germs and is an awesome degreaser.
Since 2000 they have not used any fertilisers at the farm (not even the ones permitted by their organic certification). They practise Biodynamic agriculture, which is very similar to organic farming – it emphasises the use of manures and composts instead of using artificial chemicals on the soil. This distiller is also very passionate about employing their local community and many of their workers have worked on their farms for most of their lives. Now their children are also being employed. They also run an educational farm that allows children from the surrounding villages to visit and learn all about growing their own food without using chemicals or fertilisers. They are sort of like the “Bollywood Veggies” of Italy.
