In Japan the essential oil of lemon is diffused through the air systems of offices and factories as it increases concentration and the ability to memorise, significantly reducing mistakes.
Research has confirmed that the aroma of lemon is relaxing to brain waves, which improves concentration. It was the most effective essential oil tested in reducing computer errors; those working in a lemon scented room made less than half the mistakes of those working in unscented rooms. Because it appears to stimulate the mind whilst calming emotions, therefore sniffing lemon can be helpful when making decisions.
