Harm score: 1 (Natural substances)


The lemon tree (Citrus medica limonum) is a species of evergreen fruit tree belonging to the Rutaceae family. This tree is native to southwest Asia and is also known by the names lemon or limon. The lemon tree is a low tree that can reach a height of up to 6 metres. It is characterised by oval leathery leaves with serrated edges and a strong citrus scent. The flowers of this tree are white with a purple tinge on the outside. The fruit of the lemon tree is oval to pear-shaped with yellow to yellow-green skin and an intense citrus aroma.

Lemon, the fruit of the lemon tree, is highly valued in gastronomy, cosmetics and medicine due to its high content of vitamin C, antioxidants and essential oils, which have antibacterial and antiseptic properties. Lemon is commonly used in the preparation of beverages, sauces, desserts, ice cream, but also in various salads or as a flavouring for fish, meat and dough. Lemon juice is also used to flavour tea or as an ingredient in cocktails. In cosmetics, lemon extract is used in skin creams, toners, shampoos or soaps, where it acts as an antiseptic, refreshes and tones the skin, promotes its regeneration and adds elasticity. In medicine, lemon extract is used for its antiseptic and antibacterial properties, and in aromatherapy for its stimulating and refreshing effect.
