What Lemon Essential Can Do

When I first started using essential oils, I got a kit with the Top Ten essential oils.

In this kit was Lemon.
And Lemon was one of the first oils I used that truly made me believe in essential oils.
Yes, I was a bit of a skeptic when it came to oils. I had heard of "miracle" health stories before that just sounded like bad commercials. I didn't think essential oils would be that much different.
I especially rolled my eye at the price of oils too. There was no way I was going to afford them, I thought!
Well, fast forward a few years later and I don't know how I would live without my oils.
As I said earlier, lemon was one of the first oils I used that made me a believer.
And it's one of the big powerhouse oils because it is so versatile.
