In the old days, I’d get out a lemon, cut it in half, get out the big contraption to squeeze it into my glass, usually getting lemon juice squozed all over the place. Then add water and gulp it down.
Then clean up the mess: wash the contraption, wipe down the counter, toss the squozed lemon, rinse the glass. Not horrible, but the squeezing got old. Which meant I rarely did it…
Then a friend introduced me to essential oils and Lemon EO. Right away, I saw the sense in not having to do the lemon-cutting-squeezing-gulping-wiping-cleaning routine.
Bye bye messy expensive lemons, hello affordable lemon essential oil.
I’m not lazy, I’m efficient.
Did you know that lemon essential oil is actually cold-pressed from lemon rinds, not the fruit? The rind is where you find limonene, the powerhouse of citrus fruits.
Just type “limonene” into your search bar and read a little bit on why anyone would make the switch. See? You definitely want limonene in your life!
Now my glass of morning lemon water is made with a drop of lemon essential oil. Easy, neat, affordable and delicious!
Btw, we use Young Living essential oils which are FDA-approved for ingestion. Read more about Young Living essential oils right here. If you want to give them a try, drop me a line — my email and phone number are at the top of every page.
FYI, I add a tiny dash of Real Salt to mine. I love the taste and Real Salt has its minerals intact (buy it here).
