Lemons are an excellent source of vitamin C. Having a lemon squeezed in warm water first thing every morning will cleanse your digestive system.

Lemon is also used in aromatherapy. Since it smells so ‘clean’ it induces the feeling of freshness and purges the feelings of inadequacy thus building confidence. The essential oil is known to increase the level of concentration. To get rid of a tan apply lemon on hands and feet. Section hair and rub a lemon on hair and voila, you get natural-looking highlights like you just returned from a day at the beach.
