I am a big fan of lemons.  I enjoy adding them to my water and to my iced tea, I’m a big fan of most recipes that include lemon juice, and I so love that bright, citrus-y smell!

How appropriate that lemons would be yellow as their scent always make me think of a beautiful day bright with sunshine and all things good!  Is it any wonder the scent of lemon is widely recognized for promoting a positive mood?

As I’ve used and learned more about essential oils, lemon essential oil has become one of my favorites.  The scent just can’t be beat… so perfect to brighten up any day!  What I have learned, though, is that it is good for so much more!

Here are just a few ways that Lemon Essential Oil can be used….
