Promotes a Positive Mood

We have all had those days where we just can’t get into the groove of things. Whether it stems from lack of motivation, stress, or other challenges, it’s important to find ways to boost your mood naturally when you need it most. 

Some people enjoy going on walks, while other people like to meditate or perform yoga. But, did you know that you can also use lemon essential oil to promote a positive mood? 

Lemon oil can turn any space into an uplifting environment.  Due to the chemical makeup of this oil, it has been shown to improve mood with its energizing and invigorating aroma. Research also shows that lemon essential oil can be more effective at relieving stress than other essential oils such as lavender and rose.

Decreases Inflammation

Inflammation can lead to a multitude of health problems. When you deal with chronic inflammation, it increases your risk of developing heart disease, stroke, type 2 diabetes, cancer, and more. Whether you know it or not, inflammation can be present around the body. If you are looking for a natural remedy to reduce inflammation, you can reach for lemon essential oil! This ingredient contains anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial properties that work wonders for your skin when applied topically. 

Since lemon essential oil is loaded with antioxidants and vitamins, it may not surprise you that it is also good for your skin. Acne and other skin conditions caused by inflammation can be remedied with use of this oil. It promotes faster wound healing and fights off bacteria that leads to those pesky breakouts.

Aids Nausea and Indigestion

If you are feeling nauseous, you can simply inhale lemon essential oil to help calm the symptoms. The essence of lemon essential oil may help ease heartburn, upset stomach, and nausea.
