Lately people have been asking me if there is any difference between lemon juice and lemon essential oil. Oh yes, there is. Lemon juice that can be purchased in the store is made from the pulp of the juice. The same result you get from squeezing lemon into your water. However, lemon essential oil is made from the rind of the lemon. The rind is what contains a very important component for your health called d-limonene. If you haven’t heard of d-limonene, you should google it right now. It’s great stuff. So good for you. Our bodies can be full of so many toxins, and those affect our health. Drinking essential oils is a great way to rid the body of toxins. The rind is also much less acidic than the pulp, so it’s much easier on your teeth and your stomach. One bottle of Young Living lemon essential oil contains the rind of approximately 75 lemons. That’s pretty potent! Young Living lime, orange, and grapefruit oils are the same. They are made from the rind and are very healthy at keeping you above the wellness line. And Young Living now carries a Vitality dietary line which can be ingested. I love drinking a drop or two of citrus oil in my water. It is great for detoxing, energizing, uplifting my mood, promoting healthy skin, aiding in normal digestion, and supporting a healthy immune system. By the way, these citrus oils are great to use in homemade household cleaners. They give you a chemical-free, toxin-free way to clean, and they give a fresh smell to any room you use them in. I also love to use lemon or orange oil in my diffuser to give my kitchen a clean smell. Young Living citrus oils are inexpensive and are 100% pure oil.
