It is said that lemons can boost your mood, treat anxiety and depression. This shouldn’t sound unlikely, since lemons have a wide range of uses and offer numerous health benefits.
There are many ways to utilize them, and sometimes you don’t even have to consume them in order to get some of their benefits. For example, you can cut three lemons, place them at the bedside before going to bed, and leave them until the next morning, and this is what will happen:
- They will energize your body
- They will fight tiredness and hangover, leaving the mind fresh and sharp
- They will enhance your breathing and treat common cold and asthma
- They will refresh the air in the room
theAassistant professor Dr. J.V. Hebbar at the Alva’s Ayurveda Medical College stated that the lemon essential oil offers many other benefits as well, including:
