Feel Light on Your Feet With Lemon 

We’re not suggesting that any woman needs to lose weight but if you’re struggling with self esteem studies suggest that the scent of lemon may help. In a new study performed by the University of Sussex, researchers in the Computer-Human Interaction Lab found that people feel thinner and lighter when they experienced the scent of lemon. The researchers believe that new findings could be used to develop new recommendations for therapies for people with perception disorders or wearable technologies that could improve self-esteem. Giada Brizana, a first year PHD student at the SCHI lab noted, “Our study shows how the sense of smell can influence the image we have in our mind of our body and on the feelings and emotions towards it.” 


Powerful Antimicrobial Properties

The fresh smell of lemons makes them a natural choice to freshen a room. There may be a reason why lemon is the most popular scent when it comes to cleaning products. One of the main properties found in lemon essential oil include sabinene. Sabinene is known to contain antimicrobial properties. Antimicrobials products kill or slow the spread of microorganisms. Microorganisms include bacteria, viruses, protozoans, and fungi such as mold and mildew. The next time you start to notice a funky smell, reach for our fresh and zesty Lemon Verbena wax melts. For small spaces like a kitchen or a bathroom we recommend starting with 1-2 bears.

Boost Memory 

Put it simply, lemon you’re the zest. Did you know that the scent of lemon may also boost your ability to focus and even enhance your memory? A recent study done by Takasago found that those who work with computers made 54% fewer typing errors when the workplace was scented with lemon!  This is partly because the “smell” receptors in our noses communicate with parts of our brain that serve as storehouses for emotions and memories. Since we associate certain memories and emotions with certain smells, these memories may be “triggered” through the smell, resulting in faster recall time. If you’re looking for the perfect melt & melter combination for work, we recommend pairing our Lemon Verbena wax melts with one of our Mini Tabletop Wax Warmers. You’ll be able to power your melter right from any USB device (like a laptop) while enjoying the refreshing properties of lemon essential oils!
