Lemons contain vitamin C, citric acid, flavonoids, B-complex vitamins, calcium, fiber, copper, iron, magnesium, phosphorus, potassium, bioflavonoids, pectin and limonene and are exceptional for the body and for the mind. It makes sense the oil would produce the same benefits. Lemon essential oil has a calming effect on the emotions like anxiety and nervousness, which helps emotional eaters. It rejuvenates skin and allows the body to heal from within. Lemon oil stimulates lymph drainage, helps flush toxins out of the body and will improve digestion, which assists in weight loss. The Asian Pacific Journal of Tropical Biomedicine discovered lemon essential oil boosts the immune system and can accelerate the "White corpuscles production along with counteracting acidity and ulcers through citric acid, which helps digestion, by forming carbonates and bicarbonates of potassium and calcium." Add lemon oil to the bottom of your feet, ankles, to the wrists or drink a few drops of it in water to enjoy the benefits.
