Lemon Essential Oil
Lemon is well-known for its citrus flavor and smell. It could be easily found in markets nowadays, and people often squeeze the inner fruit to make pure lemon juice, mainly to cure sore throat.
Lemon essential oil, however, is obtained from cold-pressing the lemon peel, not the inner fruit. It is a good antioxidant and the citrus aroma greatly boosts one's appetite too!
