Lemon oil is perhaps one of the easier to recognise scents within aromatherapy with its distinct citrusy smell, which is characteristic of its high limonene content (between 60 to 80%). Today, the vast majority of lemon oil is produced in Italy. However, there are also some large scale manufacturers of citrus oils, which includes lemon oil, in other countries, for instance Mexico.

Most Citrus essential oils are already quite important in the perfume, food and beverage industries, but they are also seeing more use in aromatherapy and as medicinal agents.
