Lemon essential oil is a top note cold-pressed from the fresh peels of Citrus x limon. Unlike distilled citrus oils, cold-pressed oils retain their color with lemon being a sunny yellow. Lemons are thought to have originated in Southeast Asia and the Middle East nearly 2000 years ago and have become integral parts of cuisine all over the world. It can take roughly 50 lemons to produce .5 oz. of oil.
