I'm loving my Young Living Essential Oils more everyday. They have been used every single day since I got my kit delivered to my door. While I love all the oils equally, I have been using one a little more than others recently. I'll give you a hint, it comes in the starter kit!! Which one you ask?
Drum roll please....
I LOVE THIS OIL Y'ALL.
I wanted to do a short blog post explaining just a few reasons why I love it and hopefully encourage some of you to try this amazing oil for yourself!
First of all, I need to give a shout out to my amazing sister for introducing me to oils and showing me how they can truly change your life. My family will be forever grateful! I LOVE YOU SISTER! Okay... now onto the good stuff!
I first used lemon in my water. I'm normally not a fan of lemon water. If I ever put lemon in my water, some sugar must go in next. I'm all about that ghetto lemonade! Other than that, I would RARELY drink lemon water, I've just never cared for the taste. I was told several years ago by my urologist to drink more lemon water in order to help clean out my kidneys more effectively, did I listen? No. It wasn't until I tried Young Living Lemon oil that I pretty much fell in love. My first thoughts were:
''THIS IS SO REFRESHING!''
''THIS DOESN'T EVEN TASTE LIKE LEMON WATER!''
''YAY CLEAN KIDNEYS!''
''WILL THIS RUIN THE ENAMEL ON MY TEETH?''
To answer that last question, no it won't! The oil is not acidic, it is cold pressed from the rind and in fact it makes your body less acidic. So cool. My teeth will thank me later I'm sure.
So #1... I LOVE TO DRINK LEMON OIL.
I can drink it all day long and feel good that my teeth aren't being destroyed!
TIP: Lemon oil should be added to a glass water bottle. Otherwise, the oil will eat your plastic water bottle thus you will be drinking lemon-plastic- toxic water... eh, no thanks.
I bought my water bottle at Target and I love it! It goes everywhere with me.
Drinking lemon oil is also a natural detoxifier. Be gone toxins. Get out of my body, you aren't welcome here. You never know what toxic things can be in your body because of food and such, I'd rather tell them good riddance than let them stay.
With all the extra water I've been drinking I've also been a lot less bloated than I use to be. More water means less bloat. Sounds weird, but it's true! Usually by the end of the day I feel like I've gained 5 lbs because I'm bloated, haven't felt that since I've been drinking my lemon water and it's fabulous.
#2 I LOVE THAT LEMON OIL KILLS NASTY ODORS.
Yes, I've got em. So do you. If you have a husband or a dog, then I KNOW you've got em. Just the other day I walked into my apartment to a horrible sight. My mini dachshund, Milo had thrown up in his crate. No idea why, but it was absolutely horrid. The smell was so strong I could hardly clean it up without gagging. Am I being too detailed? I apologize....but it really was terrible. I immediately started diffusing lemon in my awesome YL diffuser (pictured below) to help get rid of the smell, and it worked! Lemon actually eats the nasty smell and leaves it smelling wonderful. I've also done this when cooking dinner has left my kitchen smelling a little nasty. Works like a charm! And of course here's a picture of my baby who happens to be a dog.
Last but certainly not least...
#3 I LOVE THE YOUNG LIVING ALLERGY SHOT
Lemon is one of the ingredients in the wonderful YL allergy shot. It includes lemon, lavender and peppermint which are all oils that come in the premium starter kit. I have grown up with allergies. I remember having to be sent inside during elementary school field day because my eyes were so watery and itchy. I rubbed them so much that I had scratched my eyeballs! Yes, I missed 4th grade field day. Lets all take a moment of silence to mourn that great loss.
It seems like around this time every year my sinuses don't know what to do with themselves so they just throw a party and invite Mr. Runny Nose, Miss. Itchy Eyes, and Sir Sneeze A lot.
BUT NOT THIS YEAR MY FRIENDS... OH NO, I HAVE HAD ENOUGH.
INTRODUCING THE LLP ALLERGY SHOT!
With all the back and forth, hot and cold business this has been a must for me already this season. It was 80 degrees one day then 30 and icy the next here in Austin, TX. Texas is notorious for it's crazy weather but this year I finally found relief that doesn't require a pill! Praise God! No seriously... I thanked God for this last Sunday at church, this is a big deal guys! I just diffuse a few drops of each oil in my apartment and I have felt so much better!
There are SO many more other uses for lemon oil, these are just my 3 favorite reasons why I am loving it so much. I've posted a link below of 34 ways to use lemon oil from another blogger's site.
As always, feel free to contact me if you have any questions about these oils! I am more than happy to help! Since I can't go climb a tall building and scream about how much I love YL oils, I'll just make blog posts and answer questions :)
