*Helps with Detox
A wonderful way to incorporate this oil into your day is to drink a couple of drops in your water as it raises your PH levels and makes your body alkaline. Let's talk about water consumption for just a second. It is recommended that you take your overall weight, divide that number in half and drink that many ounces of pure water every day. I’m not talking coffee, tea and soda… PURE water. So, if you weigh 140 pounds then on average you should be drinking about 70 ounces of water every day. Be SURE to always use citrus oils in a glass or stainless steel bottle as lemon will break down the plastic and you DON’T want to drink liquid plastic. I add 2-4 drops per every 24oz of water. Make sure the lemon oil you consume is pure, organic & free of fillers. This is the brand water filter I recommend http://www.bigberkeywaterfilters.com.
Cancer thrives in an acidic environment. What foods are acidic? Anything including dairy, sugar, wheat, alcohol and coffee. It’s beneficial to eat foods that are alkaline like fruit and veggies to support your body. What I like to do every day is just kick off my morning with a couple of drops of that Lemon essential oil in my water to help detox. If you run out of lemon oil, just add a half of a fresh squeezed lemon juice to warm water and drink it down daily.
Lemon is also a wonderful detox. Let’s face it… we live in a toxic environment. The foods we eat, the things we drink, products we put on our skin, negative news, cleaning products, air pollution and some people that we meet can all add to our toxicity! By incorporating lemon daily into your life, it can aid your body in detox, help you loose weight and literally lift your mood.
You no longer have to put on rubber gloves and a mask to clean your home! Lemon essential oil it's great for cleaning because it's anti-fungal, anti viral and it's very cleansing. Instead of using some of those name brand wood cleaners in aerosol cans that are toxic filled with artificial scents and cleaners, I recommend you make your own wood cleaning solution.
1/2 cup Olive Oil
1/2 cup Vinegar
10 drops of Lemon essential oil.
Add all of the above to a glass spray bottle and YOU have made your very own, inexpensive and non-toxic wood cleaner. It's wonderful because not only are you smelling that beauty of Lemon of oil but you're also not breathing in all of those harmful toxins.
Lemon is also great for removing gum, stickers and bandaids (no more 1-2-3 rip it off).
There are so many great things Lemon essential oil can do, those are just a few and I look forward to teaching you many more about these wonderful essential oils in future posts.
Stay well my friend and remember that Prevention is the BEST form of healthcare.
