Lemon is a bright and refreshing flavor that always leaves us with more mental clarity, but there are many physical benefits as well!

Lemon can clear up acne when ingested or applied topically, and also relieve canker soreswith proven antibacterial and anti-fungal agents.

Any time you’re feeling a cold coming on, sip on some immune-boosting lemon water with honey to keep it at bay!
