Lemon Essential Oil and its beautiful benefits for your health.

Before I tried doTERRA’s pure lemon essential oil I actually had no idea how well a pure therapeutic-grade lemon oil works. I bought lemon oils before. They smelled good, but after closing the bottle they did absolutely nothing for me afterwards. So I never really experienced the true benefits of a high quality, therapeutic-grade pure essential oil. It all changed though when my friend Emily introduced me to doTERRA essential oils.

doTERRA’s Lemon Essential Oil was different and so much more intense and invigorating to my senses, unlike any other lemon oil I have tried in the past.

One night when I felt like I didn’t hydrate enough and I was afraid that I might be coming down with a UTI, I applied a few drops of lemon essential mixed with fractionated coconut oil to the area of my kidneys before I went to sleep, front and back of my torso. I also applied it to the bottom of my feet, ankles and legs, to help the detoxification process and to clear out my lymphatic system from water retention. Have you ever felt like your retaining a lot of water, but you actually didn’t drink enough throughout the day? I’m usually facing this dilemma during the time of my monthly cycle. That feeling of being “fat” and bloated?

By the next morning I lost some of the water weight and the detoxification process eliminated the pain in my UTI tract and kidney area. Honestly, it worked better than cranberry juice (and I love the benefits of cranberry juice). My face didn’t have that puffy look from water retention and my body overall felt better and lighter.

From that moment on, I read up more about the therapeutic benefits of pure lemon oil.

An essential needs to be pure and free of any artificial additives or fillers in order for you to reap its healthy benefits.

I started adding a drop or two to my glasses of water throughout the day. I’m happy to report that it really did helped me drinking more water. Another beautiful side effect of lemon essential oil is that it helps alkalizing your system and it helps with keeping your cravings and appetite at bay. And since it helps to alkalize your body, it therefore helps with enhancing digestion. A side effect with beautiful benefits.

Pure Lemon Essential Oil is a great liver cleanser as well. Adding a few drops to a warm cup of water (not hot – otherwise you change the chemical components of the oil), helps removing toxins and waste from your system and gives you an energetic kick-start for the day!! 

Another tip: During intermittent fasting when the nights sometimes feel long without any food, I add 1-2 drops of lemon oil to a cup of chamomile tea. It helps with feelings of deprivation by curbing my appetite and the chamomile helps me to relax and unwind, instead of searching the cabinets for a late-night snack.

Lemon oil is also a great mood enhancer. Diffuse a few drops in your room and you feel the uplifting benefits of this beautiful citrus oil. Your state of mind will be go from mindless to energized and refreshed.

Rubbed over your chest and diffused in your room, lemon oil helps with congestion as well.

It infuses your home with an invigoration, energetic clean smell, which simultaneously affects your mood and well being.

I have researched doTERRA oils extensively about their sourcing and purity, otherwise I would not take  any essential oil internally.  I love how doTERRA’s oils are sourced, grown, harvested and tested by third parties. doTERRA oils are not synthetic and they do not contain any fillers or alcohol. The purity of their oils is their main concern which makes me feel good about using them for me and my family.
