This strawberry lemon refresher is great to start the day! After becoming more informed about essential oils we do NOT recommend drinking them. No oils should be consumed internally in our opinion.
This recipe originally had essential oil in it, however our views and knowledge have changed. We highly suggest you keep oils out of your drinks. We also recommend that you strongly reconsider ingesting oils. It’s also very important to properly dilute essential oils with carrier oils instead of using neat, straight. Oils are very powerful and while they are helpful, they can also be harmful, just like any medicine. We understand that essential oils are natural and that is why we use and enjoy them – but it’s important to respect and really understand how to use them properly. This drink is better with fresh lemon and much safer for consumption.
We suggest using fresh lemon juice instead of any concentrates or mixes. If you want you could even use a juicer and juice your lemon with the rind on for more detoxifying properties and flavor.
