Lemon Water

Next to drinking plain purified water, drinking lemon water daily is a simple, yet important thing you can do for your health. Not only do we use fresh lemons in our water, but I love to use lemon essential oil. No buying, slicing and storing lemons; the oil is in the cupboard above my water pitcher, so it is easy to add a drop or two to the pitcher when it is filled.

Some of the benefits of lemon, found at are:
  • lemon juice cleans your mouth
  • it controls excessive bile flow
  • it dislodges phlegm
  • it aides in the digestive process
  • lemon water helps alleviate constipation
  • it helps prevent vomiting
  • it helps with throat issues
  • cleanses the liver and kidneys
  • works as a natural skin cleanser
And Jethro Kloss reported in his book Back To Eden:
“The medicinal value of the lemon is as follows: It is an antiseptic, or is an agent that prevents sepsis [the presence of pathogenic bacteria] or putrefaction [decomposition of tissue]. It is also anti-scorbutic, a term meaning a remedy which will prevent disease and assist in cleansing the system of impurities.”
