When life gives you lemons, use lemon essential oil to brighten up your day!  Just one look at lemons and it sparks feelings of happiness!  Lemons are a nice, bright and cheery yellow.  There is nothing quite like the uplifting and energizing aroma of fresh squeezed lemons.  Perhaps lemon essential oil and lemons themselves can be viewed as optimistic!

Lemon essential oil helps increase concentration and memory as well as combat mental fatigue; this makes it a handy oil to use at work, school or during times when concentration is needed.  Lemon essential oil is also energizing and increases mental clarity.  It is a great oil to have on hand for its antiseptic properties which makes it a great oil to use in cleaning products.  Lemon essential oil is effective for neutralizing odors and dispelling germs.  Take a few drops of lemon essential oil with you on a tissue as you head out for the day to bring you mental clarity at any time!
