One thing that’s great to do if you are looking towards your health for this year (and from this point forward) is drinking water…combine that water with Lemon Essential Oil and you have a VERY powerful health regimen.
Lemon Oil is cold pressed from the rinds of Lemons; unlike Lemon Juice, it’s pH Neutral and does not contain citric acid – so it’s much better for teeth enamel. Even more potent than juice too… because it takes 75 lemons to produce one 15 ml bottle of Lemon Essential Oil.
I’m crazy about drinking lots of water (I can thank my OB for that..) and I can’t STAND drinking water so I throw in 2-3 drops of Lemon Essential Oil with each 30 oz Stainless Steel Mug.
Lemon Essential Oil absorbs into the liver MUCH better than Lemon Juice.
Not only will it increase your focus and energy levels, it will also work well for respiratory support, and is great to support your body (everything from heartburn to liver support, kidney stores & more..)
Unlike Lemon Juice, Lemon Essential Oil contains 68% d-limonene... it’s a non-toxic part of citrus fruit, and herbs.. it’s a wonderful way to boost to your body’s natural defenses.
How does it Support your Body?
Our bodies spend a lot of time digesting the food we eat – extracting the GOOD stuff and sending those nutrients to well deserved parts of the body. The bad stuff goes out, but before that, it gets broken down and filtered by our liver and kidneys – our which are basically a storage dump for all the bad stuff in the body (soda, sugar…)
The best way to flush that stuff out is a GOOD glass of Water in the morning with Lemon Essential Oil (if you don’t have EO you can throw in some lemon – we just think that EO is a little more beneficial) – even before you eat your breakfast.
That will help your body do it’s job a little easier to move everything OUT to where it needs to go, so it can start new for the day.
Why Not Just Use Lemons?
Arizona has Lemon season every winter, and we swim in lemons – but I will be honest and say I’d much rather use Lemon Essential Oil than actually squeezing a lemon. Adding a few drops to each glass of water (or, in my case, a 30-oz Stainless Steel Mug) is easier than battling with lemons before the kids go off to school.
After lemon season is over, you will likely pay more for lemons – if you are not using Organic lemons you are risking pesticides in your water.. so you will need to buy Organic lemons, since your own won’t grow all year long (now.. I haven’t checked on those prices because I haven’t a need to, but I’m almost certain they can be much more expensive.)
But is it more cost effective?
A 15 oz Bottle of Lemon Essential Oil runs me just $11, and has 285 drops – I use 3 drops in each 30 oz mug, for a total of 6 drops a day. .. Lemon Essential Oil lasts me just under 2 months.
Have you tried incorporating lemon in your water?
