Day 1 - LEMON!!!

It's Lemon!  I already did a Lemon post, but it's so AMAZING that I love it's the first one in the challenge!! I LOVE LEMON!!  

Why? Well, it's not because I am a sour puss LOL! But it's SUCH a versatile Oil!  

I teach oil classes.  In them, everyone gets a GLASS (no plastic please!) of Lemon Oil infused water. Ice too - it helps move that oil around in the water.  Essential Oils are volatile plant compounds, and while they will evaporate, they are still classified as an oil as they won't mix with water.  So, in that GLASS glass (metal or ceramic too), you need to stir them up with that ice, or a metal straw.  Vodka works too, but it's not a good idea to walk around drinking vodka on ice with Lemon Oil all day long ;)  (But feel free to add it to you mixed drinks when the time is right!)

I keep saying GLASS.  There is a reason! Lemon EO EATS plastic! It cleans it out of you too which is why it's so cool, but don't add to the problem by putting it in a plastic drinking receptacle as you'll be drinking plastic.  You'll wreck the glass too! I know.  I have done this.  

Lemon Essential Oil is cold pressed from the rind.  As such, there is no citric acid to worry about, which is another plus for adding it to water.  It can support your kidneys without ruining the enamel on your teeth!

Lemon is fresh and clean. You can add the essential oil to your white laundry load if you, like me, have given up bleach!  You can mix it in a bottle with water and a bit of epsom salts and clean away with it.  Do you have a diffuser?   You so need a diffuser!  Diffuse Lemon - it's so happy and uplifting!  It's great after school for the kids!!  It's basically free with a Premium Starter Kit too!

One of the BEST things about Lemon is it's so affordable! It's an oil you will use all of the time!  Lots of uses we did not even cover, but as you get to know me, you will learn many!
