Particularly, after the Lunar New Year, there is a large quantity of leftover kumquats, so utilizing this fruit source to extract essential oils would bring high economic efficiency while also contributing to addressing the current environmental concerns.


Currently, there are numerous research works on essential oils worldwide, especially those belonging to the Citrus family such as orange, lemon, kumquat, pomelo, and lime, due to their outstanding benefits such as cooling, decongestant, treating coughs, and reducing stress.
