Everyone knows that lemon and blueberries go great together when you are cooking. But aside from the taste, did you know that there are some tremendous health benefits that come from those two fruits? Here are a few of them:

Learning all of this about the benefits of these fruits inspired me to come up with this Blueberry/Lemonade drink to give my husband and I a boost as we were working on projects around our house!
I had seen a recipe from my friend and Doterra consultant for a morning detox drink containing warm water, lemon oil and honey. It seemed like a great idea, but I didn't want a warm drink and I thought about the blueberries in my fridge and decided to make a Blueberry Lemonade using my lemon essential oils. It came out pretty good, but since then, I tweaked it and it is even better now. Drinking that cool and refreshing drink, knowing that everything in it was good for me felt so good after working hard all morning and gave me a boost for the rest of the day!
I generally use essential oils topically and as aroma therapy. There are very few that I feel comfortable ingesting, but lemon is one that I trust. If you feel uncomfortable using the essential oil in this recipe, you can substitute the juice from one lemon and maybe some zest as well.
Always store essential oils out of the reach of children. They are potent ingredients and need to be handled with care. Oils can burn skin and eyes and cause severe illness if ingested incorrectly. While I find oils to be a wonderful tool in my well being, it is important to learn about them and to know how to use them carefully. I am definitely not an expert but I value the expert advice that I have been learning from many sources. Always do your homework!
So, here it is, my simple recipe for a Blueberry Lemonade De-Tox Refresher! Be sure to use a blender that is good at breaking up ice cubes!
There you go! Super simple! Bottoms Up!
*Just to be clear, Lemon essential oil comes from the skin of the lemon, so there will not be the added benefit of fiber in this smoothie when you use the essential oil. There will be if you use a regular lemon.
