Amazing benefits of a sliced lemon

Highlighting the amazing benefits of sliced lemon wedges on a bedside table

It’s easy to see why so many popular cleaning solutions today – and a bundle of other products – smell as much like fresh lemons as possible. We equate this scent with freshness and cleanliness, and for good reason!
At the same time, there’s a world of difference between the benefits of lemon scented products and actual lemons themselves, and you want to make sure that you are taking full advantage of everything that lemons have to offer your overall health, well-being, and environment.

A sliced lemon on your bedside table will dramatically reduce stress

According to research conducted by Harvard University, and a handful of other organizations around the world, lemon slices that have been sprinkled with a little bit of salt and then left on your bedside table overnight have the ability to relax you, help you unwind, and give you a tremendous amount of 100% all-natural stress relief at the same time.

The citrus scent is going to relax your brain waves and your emotions, and the actual juices that are going to evaporate and be distributed throughout your room are going to work to clean the air as well. This is all going to help you reduce strength and anxiety, even while you sleep!

Dramatically boost your focus

You don’t just want to leave sliced lemon on your bedside table if you’re looking to improve your overall cognitive abilities, critical thinking, and decision-making. By slicing a lemon into wedges and placing it on your desk or workspace, ideally near your eyes, your nose, and your mouth, you’re going to be able to take advantage of the citrus scents that have been conclusively proven to boost focus.

This is a great way to improve your focus and your productivity without having to drink gallons of coffee or take other supplements to give you the edge you are after.

Fresh lemon juice works wonders on your skin

Fresh lemon juice is one of the best all-natural skin care solutions on the planet today, though you’ll want to be a little bit judicious in how you use fresh lemon juice to clear up your skin.

Because of its acidity levels, applying fresh lemon juice to your skin has the ability to melt away facial oil, kill bacteria, and leave your skin feeling both cleaner and fresher. On top of that, lemon juice hands incredible anti-oxidizing and antibacterial solutions and enzymes, and all of those components are going to help to clear up skin issues and create a more crystal-clear complexion as well.

Get rid of bugs with lemons

Believe it or not, freshly sliced lemon can help you to fight back against bugs all year round – but especially mosquitoes and flies that are going to be buzzing about in spring and summer.

All you have to do is slice a bit of lemon, sprinkle a little bit of salt on it, and then keep them close by. The citrus oils and scent will help to repel mosquitoes, flies, and other bugs, and you don’t have to worry about using chemical concoctions, poisons, or dealing with citronella candles to fight back against these bugs ever again.
