This morning started out with a happy accident of sorts, as I reached for the Coffee essential oil, I grabbed Lemon essential oil instead, this went into my coffee, y’all!
You know what though? It wasn’t horrible! Nope, actually, it kind of lightened up the flavor a bit and took away some of the bitterness coffee has.
I drank it all no problem. I drink bulletproof coffee anyway, so there were plenty of other things going on that helped cover the strong lemon taste. Like coconut oil.
Know why I put all those things in my coffee? First off, creamers are chock full of sugar.
The second reason is because the ingredients I use in my coffee promote energy, focus, and appetite suppression.
Butter (grass-fed) also goes in my coffee. Ceylon cinnamon too. Then I add some stevia for sweetness with no sugar, and no rise in blood sugar either. Safe for diabetics.
Coconut oil is essential because it has medium chain triglycerides (there’s now a shortcut in a specially made oil) which is an easily digestible fat. A good for you fat.
I had been using Ancient Nutrition Coffee essential oil in my coffee for a while, just as a flavor booster, and it sits next to other essential oils on my shelf. That is how this happy accident happened.
Now, if you were to try an experiment with essential oils and your coffee, let me suggest a different oil than lemon next time. However, if you feel froggy…
Some good ones to try might be Wild orange, peppermint, cardamom, cinnamon bark, or lavender. I have not tried any of these yet, I have sweet orange and peppermint though.
All essential oils provide benefits so you would only be enhancing the flavor and performance of your morning cuppa joe.
Do your research, buy quality essential oils from reputable sources, and let me know what you think if you give one a try. I’m sure the lemon gave me a much-needed boost of energy, it’s good for that sort of thing!
(Just so you know, I am not advocating or selling one brand of essential oil, and no one is sponsoring this post.)
