Lemon Lift

Try this on a slow summer afternoon when you're in need of a pick-me-up.

By Laura Browne

lemon

It's nice to spritz a little lemon juice into summer drinks to cool off, but it turns out that using lemon on the skin can be wonderfully refreshing, too.

Try this on a slow summer afternoon when you're in need of a pick-me-up: Add five drops of lemon essential oil and six fresh lemon slices to a small bowl of warm water. Soak a washcloth in the bowl for two minutes, then swirl it over the oil droplets floating on top of the water. Wring it out and set it aside. After a warm shower, take the washcloth and, starting at your feet and moving upward, scrub toward your heart to stimulate your circulatory system.
