Lemon has many benefits that can help during the cold and flu season. When the lymph nodes are swollen, which can happen during a cold, lemon oil (diluted) can be applied to the area to help encourage drainage of the lymphatic system.
Lemon oil mixed with a carrier oil can also be used on the chest and/or nose area to relieve congestion. Even smelling the oil directly from the bottle can be helpful (avoid direct contact).
Diffusing Lemon oil and inhaling is uplifting and mood-boosting due to its very pleasant smell. It is wonderful for house cleaning too!
Lemon blends well with other citrus oils.
