As with many citrus oils, lemon’s scent stimulates the body and mind, helping to revive the senses. A common ingredient in many spa treatments, it also possesses a variety of therapeutic and beautifying properties for the skin; namely toning, thanks to its high levels of vitamin C.

Lemon can also reduce physical ailments like muscle aches, tension and pain, especially when used in massage. When applied topically to the skin, lemon can help to break up lactic acid, which builds when muscles are overexerted. It also helps stimulate the immune system by balancing the body’s acidity levels.
