檸檬和薄荷精油

Lemon and mint blends are a popular combination used in aromatherapy to enhance respiratory health and lift mood. Lemon and peppermint essential oils contain natural compounds that reduce stress and anxiety, improve mood, and purify. When combined together, they create a powerful blend with versatile and potent benefits. Be careful not to confuse "Lemon and Peppermint Essential Oil" with "Bergamot Mint Essential Oil" . The latter is a single plant with the scientific name Mentha citrata , because the Chinese names are almost the same.
