Lemon Oil: Using lemon oil for overeating July 28 2014
Losing weight can be tough, and many people find that portion control plays a huge factor in maintaining an appropriate calorie intake for weight loss. Lemon oil (citrus limonium) is high in d-Limonene, a natural agent that is helpful in the body’s elimination of toxins and also helps the body to release fatty acids into the blood stream where they are then broken down. It also promotes energy, clarity, and invigorates the senses, all of which can be beneficial when trying to maintain a healthy weight loss program. Lemon oil is also thought to counteract stomach acidity and speeds up a slow digestive system, helping to quicken metabolism by stimulating secretions from the liver, pancreas, and the stomach.
How to use lemon oil to regulate appetite:
Take 2-3 drops of lemon oil in a small (8 oz.) glass of water. Drink this mixture first thing in the morning (before eating or drinking anything else) to set the stage for comfortable and efficient digestion throughout the day. Also drink this mixture before meals and right before bed to help the body maintain optimal metabolic capabilities even during sleep.
For a quick dose on the go, place 3-5 drops of lemon oil in the back of the throat. Swish with saliva, and follow with a small amount of warm distilled water.
Lemon oil can also be added to hot tea and additional foods (when the flavor addition feels appropriate, such as in a lemon sauce or frosting) and this can be a great way to sneak in more digestive-boosting effects of lemon and d-Limomene.
