CITRONCitrus cedra (Rutacee)
Origin: Italy (Calabria)
Originally from southeast Asia and now mainly grown in Calabria, the Middle East, India, Indonesia, the United States and Australia. The citron tree grows to a height of four metres. It has smooth, ovate leaves up to twenty centimetres long, and fragrant white flowers.
The fruit of the citron tree is traditionally associated with nobility. It is oval in shape and can reach a length of thirty centimetres, with a very thick, textured rind; as it ripens, it changes colour from green to yellow.
Like the lemon, the citron is considered to be something of a "cure-all" in many southern European countries.
The essential oil is obtained from cold pressing of the fresh peels, and is a limpid, greenish-yellow liquid with a fresh, typically citric fragrance that's a little richer than the more common essential oil of lemon. It combines well with the essential oils of Bergamot, Calamus, Clary sage, Cypress, Ethiopian olibanum, Frankincense, Juniper, Neroli, Rosemary, Rosewood, Vetiver and Ylang-ylang.
popular herbalist tradition)
Essential oil of citron is totally non-toxic, and like lemon oil it is widely used in aromatherapy for its refreshing and anti-depressant action. It is an excellent treatment for acne, eczema, insect bites, calluses and labial herpes; exposure to the sun should be avoided after application to the skin, however, as it is phototoxic.
It's widely used as a fragrance in medicines and perfumes. It's also a base ingredient in the food and drinks (alcoholic and non-alcoholic) industries.
