The Many Benefits of Lemon Essential Oil
Lemon is one of my personal favorites when we are talking about Essential Oils and Aromatherapy. It just evokes a feeling of happiness, brightness & clarity. I don't know about you, but I just love lemon -- lemon desserts, lemon tea & a nice cold glass of lemonade on a warm day. Lemon Essential Oil deserves some attention, as it is very beneficial.
