Lemon to Detox the body

Natural practitioners see toxins as a cause of cancer and other diseases.  It just makes sense that we want to limit our exposure and help our bodies get rid of these unwanted chemicals.

The good news?  You don’t have to do anything extreme.  Detox support can be as simple as a few drops of lemon essential oil in your water.

Daily detox with lemon essential oil

Lemon essential oil, cold pressed from the rind, is a powerful cleanser.  You can use it to clean glass, to remove any kind of sticky substance, and to get stains out of carpet.  It’s stronger than you may think — it will actually break down plastics.

And it can help clean up your body, too.  When you drink lemon essential oil in water, it supports your body’s detoxing systems to help naturally get rid of accumulating toxins.

How to do it?  Put 1-2 drops of lemon oil in every 8 ounce glass of water; drink 10-20 drops of lemon oil per day.  Make sure you drink out of glass and not plastic (because lemon oil will break down plastic).  And it helps to put the essential oil in the bottom of the glass, then pour water over.  That way, the essential oils don’t just float on top.

You might want to go slowly when starting. Try 1-2 drops the first day and gradually work up from there. I had detox headaches for a few days as my body adjusted.

All the citrus oils support detox, so if you want to mix it up, try orange, lime, grapefruit, or even green mandarin.

This simple little habit can provide such powerful detox support for your body, every day.  No crazy cleanses required.

If you really don’t want to drink it in the water, pop a few drops into a diffuser to gently detox the room. For best results around the home use Purify.
