It's been used in the perfume and food industries (Earl Grey tea) for a long time. While essential oil has begun to be extracted more recently, the fruit, and its essence and flavour have been used in traditional medicine for hundred of years.
Essential oils must be used and applied with caution, careful consideration and in moderation due to the fact they are highly concentrated.
