The PASSION Pure Essential Oil Blend we select for you, consists of three ingredients: lemon, lavender, and geranium. Let’s talk about the benefits of each additive and why it is one of the best gifts for Valentine's day.
Lemon is a known citrus fruit to provide much benefits including Vitamin C. But the fruit and the essential oil are not the same. The oil is the aromatic part of the fruit and is extracted from the rind. Therefore, according to Organic Facts, the health benefits and healing properties of lemon essential oil are both similar and different from the lemon fruit and lemon juice because of its concentrated nature and different levels of therapeutic chemical components. Diffusing the oil brings about a whole new range of benefits. Breathing in the scent was shown in a study to bring calmness and improve mood. This might be connected to how lemon oil is a natural analgesic because a 2014 study showed that diffusing the oil changed the way mice’s brains responded to painful stimuli. Lemon essential oil was also shown to decrease nausea. This is especially vital for pregnant women and those who experience morning sickness severely. Other negative lemon oil can help eliminate are:
