This Powerhouse Trio: Separate or Together, these three are Amazing
Lemon: Skip the Zest!
We all know what lemons are so this is a great place to start. The oil smells just like lemon zest- because that is what it is cold pressed from- the rind of lots of lemons. Lemon water is all the health rage recently, but did you know that the rind of the lemon has the most enzymes and health benefits. It’s just not the easiest to chew! The oil, on the other hand is extremely easy to use.
I love adding Lemon oil to my cleaners! It is in my fruit wash spray and I use one drop to get sticky residue from labels or children’s misplaced stickers.
Go Google D-Limonene and without stating the medical uses it is good for, I am sure you'll be impressed.
Peppermint: Jack of All Trades
Taking a whiff of peppermint is like a sensory rush without children jumping on your gut or an alarm clock blaring in your ear. If only I could get my diffuser to turn on right when I need to get up! Peppermint is also GREAT for digestion. Add a drop to your water to promote a healthy Gastrointestinal tract while you enjoy a refreshing and delicious drink.
I have found that one drop of Peppermint mixed into Vitamin C powder and shaken into my big stainless steel water bottle is perfect for starting my day refreshed! It’s also extremely useful after enjoying my favorite Mexican or Indian foods!
Lavender: The Swiss Army Knife
Lavender is one of history’s most celebrated and versatile essential oils. This oil is one of the safest and can be applied undiluted to the skin.
This is one of the most used oils as it can be integrated into skin support, calming activities and smells so peaceful and natural.
I was not a fan of Lavender lotions or soaps but have liked the plant itself. Now I know most products contain either synthetic fragrance or a cheaper and less dynamic strain of Lavender: Lavandin I like the fresh smell of Lavender oil so much better!
