Beat the blues with lemon essential oil

Given lockdown and, all the perils which came with it, many are feeling down in the dumps and rightfully so, have little to no motivation to get their goals.  Did you know that the scent of lemon promotes a more wakeful, happier mood?  In addition, now that winter is upon us, diffusing lemon essential oil on those frosty mornings could just help you mentally usher in the spring and summer seasons.

Lemon also acts as an antibacterial agent so feel free to add a few drops into your cleaning solution to amp up anti-bacterial agents as well as leave behind a lemony fresh scent on your surfaces.
