Indigenous to Asia, the Kumquat fruit is the size of a large olive and can be eaten whole with the peel. The peel has been described as being sweet, and the flesh sour. The peel produces a versatile essential oil known to have cleansing properties as well as aromatic benefits. Also known as Citrus japonica, kumquat is filled with limonene; the same main chemical component as Lemon, Lime, Wild Orange, and other citrus essential oils. Because of this, they share many of the same features and benefits, and can often be used interchangeably. The aroma of Kumquat is well-suited to uplift mood, invigorate the mind, and help provide a new perspective when tackling daily challenges.
