The origin and production of oil

Curiosity: Each bottle of lemon oil equals 75 lemons on average.
Discover the 10 benefits of adding this essential oil to your life.
1 - Helps to improve states of anxiety and depression
The aroma of a space or a smell that we can inhale has an effect on us. We know this from experience when we get on the metro, in other people's homes, in stores, etc. In each space there is a scent and that scent influences our mood. We have all experienced being somewhere in nature or at someone's house and saying "what a smell!". Well, that moment is equivalent to an emotional state. It is in this sense that essential oils help us. They help us to stop identifying with dialogue in the mind and transports us to a moment of joy.
And it's no wonder that Lemon Essential Oil creates this effect! It is in fact one of the best scents to take us to other emotional states. PS: Proof of this is its extensive use in cooking, perfumes, cleaning products, etc.
