Ever wondered why lemon is the scent used by almost every cleaning or sanitization product? Well, it turns out that the scent of lemon isn’t just zesty and refreshing, it also provides a myriad of health benefits.

And you can achieve these health benefits by slicing up a lemon and placing next to where you sleep at night. Slice your lemon into fourths, lightly coat them in salt, and then get ready to be amazed.

Here are 5 health benefits you gain from having a sliced lemon next to you while you sleep:


Stress relief

Bedtime should always be a relaxing end to your day, but many of us often find ourselves more stressed out and anxious when trying to fall asleep than any other time of day. If you’re one of these people, sliced lemon is for you. Research has found that the smell of citrus and lemon soothes the brain, calming nerves and emotions.
Enhanced focus

A need for focus during bedtime might sound counter-intuitive, but it’s actually quite helpful for people who suffer from insomnia. Focusing on the positive aspects of life (or relaxation exercises) can help your brain find the optimal setting for a good night’s rest. Which is exactly what a sliced lemon helps to achieve.

Improved breathing

If you’ve ever gone to bed with a cold or severe allergies, you know that breathing is something we often take for granted. When you’re all stuffed up and longing for a deep breath of fresh air, grab that lemon and slice it up. Lemons have natural antibacterial and anti-oxidizing properties, so its scent will help clear up your nostrils and sinuses.

Insect repellent

Mosquitoes are easily one of the most annoying creatures to exist on our planet today. If you’re sleeping in a place where they are prominent, and don’t want to wake up covered in itchy bug bites, a sliced lemon might be the solution to your problems. Lemon has been seen to discourage all different types of insects, helping keep them away from you and your precious sleep.

More energy and positive vibes in the morning

Having to drag yourself out of bed early in the morning is not something many of us like doing. In fact, sometimes you probably want to scream and punch something. Having a sliced lemon on your nightstand or near your bed will help make your mornings easier.

Lemon scent increases levels of serotonin in the brain, making you forget about any unhappy, negative morning thought patterns.
