Sanatio Naturalis Sicilian Lemon (Citrus limon) is a pure therapeutic-quality aromatherapy essential oil, and is cold-pressed from the rind of the fruit. Our finest essential oils are ethically and sustainably sourced, elegantly packaged in Sanatio Naturalis signature gift box.
Why Are They So Good?
It all starts with the raw materials. Zesty, fresh and fruity, Sanatio Naturalis Lemon, grown in Siracusa, in southern Italy, boasts a unique and sunny quality. Our exceptional lemons are cultivated in a traditional way, and hand-pick the fruit with care. We worked directly with the producer, a family business, founded in 1926, the traditions, skills, expertise and cultivation techniques have been handed down from generation to generation, now at the fourth generation. Today we still rely on old techniques for pruning, fertilization, and irrigation.
Geological and climatic conditions give our ingredients exceptional qualities and makes them unique. Our lemon contains at least 34% of juice, rich in Vitamin C and citric acid. Its aromatic, fine-grained peel with abundant oil-producing glands gives the highest-quality essential oils. Most of our lemons are harvested between October and May, when the oils are at their best.
It takes 3,000 lemons to produce one kilo of Lemon Essential Oil.
Our lemons are organic, too.
