There is no better way I know to cleanse your body than with wonderful flavored water to get your system back into balance.
With the holidays upon us, the indulgences of the season and the foods we don’t typically eat throughout the year, water is a great way to flush out all of those toxins from our systems. By adding ginger and lemon essential oil with a few slices of cucumber and spearmint, you get cleansing and alkaline effect from the lemon oil, a digestive aid and system balance with ginger, the cucumber slices are great for hydration and the spearmint helps settle your stomach and sweeten your water.
Here is the recipe, adapted from Urbangirlwellness.com
2 liters water (about 8 ½ cups)
2 drops doterra ginger essential oil
1 medium cucumber, peeled and thinly sliced
2 drops doterra lemon essential oil
12 small spearmint leaves.
Combine all ingredients in a large pitcher
Refrigerate over night and let flavors blend overnight
Drink the entire pitcher throughout the day

Who doesn’t feel as if there aren’t enough hours in the day? We rush through the day, running here and there, and end up exhausted. Somehow these days full of duties, obligations and just generally being busy have begun to build up and become our lives. We spend our time doing things we don’t really want to do, yet we feel we should. We’ve come to believe that being productive and crossing things off our to-do list is the ultimate goal.
The truth is, life on Earth is a brief gift, and our time is too precious to be used like this. If we want our lives to be balanced and healthy, we need to lessen our load and increase our down time. This means planning less in a day, prioritizing those things that make our hearts sing and de-prioritizing hose things that are not imperative.
If we must accomplish many things each day, we can still change the quality with which we do tihngs. How can we transmute that sprint to the train into something delicious instead of the usual gripping and tightening experience? Where can we find ease in the midst of stress? how can we cultivate the art of going slowly?
Take a few moments before you climb out of bed in the morning to remember your dreams and to think about what you want from the day. Leave your watch on the bedside table. Take the scenic route. sit for a moment with your eyes closed when you start your computer. Check e-mail only twice a day. Don’t pack your schedule so tightly there’s no time for a short walk. Light candles before you start to cook dinner. Add one moment here and there for slowness; it can be done smply and will have a profound effect on your well being.

I am doing a Cleanse. That’s right, a fellow graduate from the Institute for Integrative Nutrition has a fabulous 21-Day Cleanse and I am doing it. I just started and so far so good. Done the castor oil pack on my liver, the detoxing bath with epsom salts and baking soda, don’t forget the 8 drops of doTERRA Lavendar Oil, and been drinking my doTERRA Lemon Oil in water all day. Paula Burton, the creator of UrbanGirlWellness.com said it was okay to substitute the Lemon Oil for regular lemon and I’m so glad.
First day, no coffee, no headaches, but I am exhausted, I think it’s mostly from my day job, not so much the cleanse, although Paula did say the first 3-5 days are the worst.
You may be asking, why am I doing a cleanse since I am a health coach myself. Well, I think it’s good to be the client every once in a while. The driving factor was a friend of mine texted me over the weekend telling me that “I’m not happy, ever”. That was a wake up call to me, and that I need to change something in my life. I want to be happy but the stress of my day-to-day is wearing on me, which is why I’ve decided to do this cleanse, that is my why. I figure I need to cleanse my body which will help cleanse my mind.
Knowing that I have three big work events this month doesn’t really seem like the ideal time for me to be doing this cleanse, however, I think that’s precisely why I need to do the cleanse, I need to get clear on my goals, how I want my life to look and where I want to be. I figured out that the only thing I have to do every day is show up for my full time job. The health coaching, the doTERRA product consulting, those are just side hobbies, things that should be fun to me. The minute these two activities became more work than fun was when I started feeling incongruent with my life, which is probably why I’m not happy, which is probably why I’m doing this cleanse.
I’m not sure if I’ll continue my health coaching business at this point, I know I want to continue offering the on-line nutrition programs, but I’m not sure how big I want to grow. And with doTERRA, I love the oils, I love sharing, but I don’t love training people, so I need to get clearer on that too. .
But this blog isn’t supposed to be about my feelings today, my personal struggles, it’s about the benefits of lemon water, so here you go….
- Jump start your metabolism
- Boost your immune system
- Helps to stay hydrated
- Balances your Ph level and helps you stay alkaline
- Aids in digestion
- Flushes out unwanted toxins
- Lemon uplifts your mood, just by the smell alone
- Blood purifier
- I read that it decreases wrinkles (I think that would be my #1 reason for drinking the stuff)
- Helps respiratory issues
