What happens to your body when you sleep with lemons on your nightstand
We all know that eating citrus fruits like lemons is good for your health. But did you know that lemons have far more to offer than just tasting great and providing us with vitamins? And you don’t even have to eat them to reap the benefits!
Scroll down to learn how to get the most out of this awesome fruit!
I bet you don’t know this trick: Try cutting up three lemons and placing them on your bedside table at night.
Sleeping next to freshly cut lemons has plenty of benefits:
- The air in your room will be pure and fresh.
- You’ll breathe better, fight colds faster, and may even see your asthma get better.

It’s a simple trick, but it should improve your quality of life.
Indian Ayurvedic doctor JV Hebbar is convinced that lemon oil has many benefits. Here are some of his best suggestions for getting the most out of lemon oil:
Whiten your teeth
Mix lemon oil, coconut oil, and baking soda. Then, brush your teeth for two minutes with the mixture.
Freshen up smelly laundry
If you happen to leave your laundry in the washing machine for too long, you can give it a fresh scent by sprinkling it with a few drops of lemon oil.
Thoroughly clean your hands
Having a hard time getting your hands really clean? Add a few drops of lemon oil to your soap and your hands are guaranteed to get clean!
Clean without chemicals
Clean you shower the natural way with a mix of 40 drops of lemon oil, 20 drops distilled water, and a little vinegar. It works on countertops, too!
Wash your face
Lemon oil softens and nourishes the skin. To treat acne, mix lemon oil, baking powder, and honey and apply the concoction to your skin.
Make jewelry shine
Soak a cloth in lemon oil and use it to buff your jewelry.
Add two drops of lemon oil to water and drink three glasses a day. Your digestion will improve and you’ll lose weight.

Counteract depression and improve your mood with lemon oil aromatherapy.
Remove sticky messes
Easily remove stickers or chewing gum from the couch with a little lemon oil.
Strengthen your immune system
Lemon oil improves your immune system and can even fight colds. Mix with a little coconut oil and apply it to your neck.
There certainly are a lot of advantages to having a couple of lemons at home!
