Emotional & spiritual benefits
Lemon is great for sharpening the mind and elevating the mood. It dispels mental tiredness and apathy, clearing the way for concentration and alertness. It helps to maintain a cool and calm temperament, clear thoughts and promote decisiveness.

Cosmetic benefits
Lemon is often used to brighten a dull or sallow complexion. It removes dead skin cells and cleanses greasy or oily skin. It is softening and smoothing, improving skin texture and evening out lumps and bumps. It is useful in haircare products, particularly for light or blonde hair, cleansing and gently lightening. Lemon can also be used to protect nails from becoming brittle.

Formulation types
Due to its cleansing action, Lemon is great for oily skin and cleansing type products, including light and bright facial or body creams and lotions, cleansing oils, gels and creams, shampoos, hair rinses, stimulating body and hand washes. It can be used for uplifting essential oil blends for energy and focus. It is often used in natural household cleaning products.
