For those who follow my Facebook page, you know I enrolled in The School for Aromatic Studies, a aromatherapist certification program.
As part of that program, we focus on 24 single essential oils and their uses, benefits and safety. Over the next weeks, I’ll be sharing about each of these oil as well as different blends and products for you to try.
LET’S START WITH LEMON. (This AMAZING oil is in the Premium Starter Kit).
Lemon is Uplifting, cleansing, helps to release, relieves anxiety.
Lemon has constituents that can be considered antidepressant, antiseptic, antispasmodic, astringent, anxiolytic, depurative, detoxifier, digestive, diuretic, escharotic, febrifuge, hepatic, hypotensive, immune enhancer, stomachic, tonic.
