The benefits of lemon essential oils are amazing and were quite surprising to me in the beginning.  Maintaining a healthy lifestyle while keeping up with the demands of daily life can be tough. If you add detoxification to the mix you have yourself another routine, but wait! Adding Lemon Essential Oil to your smoothie can help to detoxify your blood while indulging in a delicious beverage during the hot summer months. Heck, I do it all year long.  It’s a 2 for 1 deal!

Lemon Essential Oil is cold-pressed from lemon rinds. Its purity reflects in the aromatic scent of crisp, warm afternoons and fresh squeezed lemonade. Ditch the unnatural detoxes and whip up this delicious smoothie from Michelle Wisdom Ellis’ Essential Oil Guide!



Here is a great recipe to try for a smoothie that you can add lemon essential oil, too.

Green Machine Smoothie

1½ cups dairy-free milk

2 cups spinach

1 cup frozen berries

1 avocado

Dash of cinnamon

1 drop of Lemon Essential Oil


Blend the above ingredients together and add in just one drop of the Lemon oil to the smoothie. It is important not to add in any additional drops as a little goes a long way!

Ingesting oils, what?

Ingesting Lemon Essential Oil might sound strange, but the benefits are astounding. Not only is it delicious, but it is all natural. Adding Lemon Essential Oil cleanses your blood and the toxins in it. It aids in soothing seasonal allergies and provides cough relief, helps to calm indigestion, and acts as a remedy for bad breath! You really can’t go wrong!

I also like to start my day with a glass (you always want to use glass when you are making things with essential oils, especially citrus it is a natural detoxes petrochemicals found in plastics, etc)  so I add some honey to bottom of glass and then add 1 drop of Lemon Essential oil to the honey and stir it around a little and then add filtered water.  This is a great way to start the day and it is great support for a healthy liver in the morning.

As you can see, the benefits are astounding! If you are pregnant or breastfeeding, talk to your physician before using any essential oils. I only use Therapeutic grade essential oils.  Check out the brand I love and trust. Here  It’s time to whip up some delicious and healthy detoxifying smoothies for the upcoming spring and summer seasons!
