Add a drop or two to a glass of water, or if you’re feeling a cold coming on (and you’re out of Shield), add a few drops to a cup of warm water. This is perfect if you find yourself at home without fruit when a cold strikes. Lemon essential oil is also fantastic as an addition to baked goods, marinades, salad dressing – anything you would typically use Lemon in!
