Approx 70% body weight should be water and the regular replenishment of fluid lost through urine and sweat is essential for our basic survival.

Lemon is easily recognised by its fresh, sharp, sweet citrus smell and often chosen as the fragrance used in household cleaning products, it is well known for its cleansing properties, not just on household surfaces but us too, inside and out. If you could only have one oil, this would be the one; it is inexpensive yet can do so much.
