Some days, it is super hard to stay focused. I have this and that to do, I haven't even had a chance to shower and regular water just tastes gross.
Introducing the miracle of lemon essential oil! This oil personally helps me focus (when diffused or applied on my chest), smells pretty (doubles as focus-er and perfume when applied on chest), and can zest up a plain old glass of water.
But wait... oil and water don't mix?!
Lemon also helps me be productive. When I need to clean my room (or the house...) I diffuse 3-4 drops of lemon in my room and let it permeate around the house to keep me productive and happy while I clean (I actually like cleaning but I need that kick to get me started, know what I'm saying?). Lemon is also lovely for meditating. If you have trouble, like I do, sticking with a mantra and not having random thoughts (sometimes I have the best thoughts and ideas during meditation when I'm not supposed to even have them) lemon can work as a trigger to help bring you back to the mantra. On my busier days, I diffuse peace and calming and lemon together to help me relax and focus during my meditation or even while I'm relaxing.
Lemon is also great on colds. When I was stuck at home with a sore throat, kind of cranky, I did some research and decided to boil some hot water and make myself some essential oils tea. I used 2-3 drops of thieves and 1-2 drops of lemon (I estimate because sometimes there is always a drop that gets out faster than you'd like), mixed it in the hot water and felt so much better after just one sip. I was able to go back to work the next day and didn't even look like I was sick. My throat wasn't as sore, but as we all know, after the worst comes the healing and you kind of lose your voice. I had a job interview for that portion of my sore throat adventures. Let's just say the receptionists had a good laugh at my misfortune.
You can also add lemon to your recipes, iced tea, drinks, a bath (mix with epsom salts and voila!) whatever! This oil is 100% lemon; no additives or anything else than lemon. And of course, is 100% organic; another great feature of Young Living. Since they control seed to seal, you can be assured you get the best quality.
Oh yeah: for a 15ml of lemon oil, you only pay $12. For those of you who like a good deal, there it is. This also comes in your premium starter kit in the everyday oils kit. You get a 5ml bottle in that kit and if you wish to get a new bottle to replace, it won't cost you an arm and a let to get a new bottle. Totally worth it? I think so.
