We all know how beneficial lemon is for our health thanks to the incredible amount of vitamin C it contains. We use lemon in our tea against a cold or add it to our salads and meals, but did you know that lemon has other benefits as well. For example, putting ½ a lemon on both sides of your bed can clean the air in your bedroom and help you relax. Take a look below to see what else it can do:
Cleans the air
Besides the pleasant aroma, lemon has powerful antibacterial properties as well, which can destroy microorganisms in the air in your bedroom and keep it clean.
Reduces high blood pressure
Lemon is the ideal high blood pressure remedy, and even a whiff of it can have beneficial effects on your blood pressure.
Helps you relax
The citrus smell will soothe your nervous system, relieve stress and anxiety and help you relax and sleep well overnight.
Improves your memory and focus
By inhaling the citrus aroma every day, you will improve your memory and focus and be more consistent at work. A Japanese study has discovered that people who inhale lemon scent at work do less mistakes during their working hours.
Improves your mood
The essential oil in lemons can improve your mood and is a great remedy against depression.
Cut a lemon in half and leave it in your rooms to repel bugs, flies, mosquitoes and other insects. This is a great natural method which will help you get rid of the bugs without chemicals.
