Did you know that enjoying a warm mug of lemon water is the best way to start off your morning? Several years ago I dove straight into an amazing Bible study that encompassed growing as a woman both physically and spiritually. Taking part of this morning routine was a key part of the study and I looked forward to my “good morning drink” each day. Now, adding lemons to my daily diet wasn’t something I had to be convinced of… I LOVE lemons and I will put them in or on anything and most everything! Actually, one of my favorite dishes is a wood fired fresh pizza topped with extra virgin olive oil, lemons, mozzarella and basil leaves! Seriously, it is delicious. So, back to the Bible study… it was around this time that I started to make the connection between growing spiritually and growing healthier. Of course, I knew the importance of being healthy and I knew that the Bible calls us to grow from the milk to the meat. I had always know the importance and looked as these two factors, but separately and never together. Since, the Lord has opened my eyes as to the importance of seeking better wellness in ALL areas of my life and how they are deeply connected to one another. I encourage you to add this to your morning routine.
Adding lemon to your water has many health benefits.
Just take a juicy organic lemon and squeeze into a glass of hot water each morning for a healthy alternative to your coffee or just an added daily bonus to your day! No fresh organic lemons on hand, no problem! Grab your Lemon essential oil, we only use Young Living, and add a drop or two! Remember, essential oils are extremely potent. Did you know that it actually takes 75 lemons to make one 15ml bottle of lemon oil! I know! Crazy. So, remember that more is not always better, just more! I seriously could add lemon to anything and usually, I do! Did I say that already? I am serious. I love lemons.
