The scent of lemon oil promotes feelings of well-being, therefore making it a great treatment for depression. Citrus uplifts your mood due to an increase of the metabolism of the chemical imipramine, making this lemon treatment perfect for those days when your mood is off. This is combination with the decreased motor activity within your open field, makes lemon and other citrus scents effective antidepressants. A few drops of essential oil applied to a tissue or napkin is all you need. Inhale throughout the day to provide the mood lift that you need.
