Have you tried cooking with food grade essential oils before? Well our friend Nicole from Nicole Joy Inspire does and swears by them! Try this refreshing and delicious Blueberry and Lime smoothie recipe using citrus oil to uplift, balance and energise
Nicole Joy says – I have used Lime essential oil in this recipe and those that know me well, know I LOVE cooking with these food-grade oils (please don’t use any el cheapo brand you can get your hands on, you’ll make yourself very sick!)
Cold-pressed from the peel of fresh limes, doTERRA Lime essential oil is refreshing and energizing – a real zinger! Due to its high limonene content, Lime provides internal cleansing benefits* and can be diffused to help purify the air. Like many of the citrus oils, Lime is known for its ability to uplift, balance, and energize.
:: Lime and our Heart ::
Lime instills courage and cheer in the heart and reminds us to be grateful for the gift of life. Lime is a heart cleanser, especially when there has been an accumulation of emotional toxins due to avoidance or repression. This oil revitalizes the heart space, giving room for light and joy. It clears discouragement and negative thoughts. This oil encourages balance between the heart and mind. It clears congestion from the heart region, assisting us in feeling safe and at home in their heart.
