Juice of half a lemon (organic if possible)
Juice of half a lime (optional)
1 drop Lemon Essential Oil
1 drop Peppermint Essential Oil
In the morning, before eating or drinking anything other than pure water, squeeze the lemon (and lime if using) into a small glass, add one drop of Lemon Essential Oil and one drop of Peppermint Essential Oil. I add a little bit of pure water and then down the hatch! Wait about 20 minutes before consuming anything else other than pure water. Drinking filtered water free of chemicals is so important, this is the filtration system that I recommend.
Depending on how much cleansing you feel your liver needs, or how brave you are 😉 this can be repeated 20 minutes before lunch and dinner, so a total of three times daily. However, even just once in the morning is a great place to start!
Repeat daily for 28 days. You may get hooked and never want to stop!
- Lemon – Lemon is known for its ability to clean toxins from the any part of the body aiding in liver and kidney cleansing, skin conditions, infectious disease, impaired memory, gout, urinary tract infections, parasites, varicose veins, anxiety, insomnia, hair, acne. It is very uplifting to the body and mind and is also antiviral and antibacterial.
- Lime – Limes contain unique active compounds called flavonol glycosides, which not only offer anticancer and antioxidant benefits, but also have antibiotic properties. Other lime benefits include stimulation of liver, healthy maintenance of heart due to its magnesium content, and potassium content that helps fight anxiety and depression.
- Peppermint – Stimulates healthy bile flow from the liver and gall bladder and supports the digestive system as a whole. Peppermint is a potent liver detoxifier.
Please note: When ingesting Essential Oils it is imperative that you only use the highest quality, pure, therapeutic grade essential oils. The only Essential Oils that I recommend are Young Living Essential Oils, you can find out more about these oils and how to purchase them HERE.
On a personal note: Today, (July 26’14) I am on day 3 of this 28 day Liver cleanse. I am feeling great, and will give you an update at the end of the 28 days!
