Benefits Of Lemon For The Body

Lemons are a super food and really good for the body. I love to use Lemon essential oil as it’s a great disinfectant. Lemons can be added to your water and to cleaning products.

Lemons can help support the heart, they are a good source of Vitamin C. They help to control weight, prevent kidney stones, fight against anemia and can help with digestive health.
