As someone who doesn't drink alcoholic drinks anymore (especially with being pregnant), I am ringing in the new year with this non-alcoholic rawktail (my punny raw version of a mocktail hehe).
I made this rawktail with Young Living's lavender essential oil, freshly squeezed lemon juice, stevia, and sparkling water. What better way to start off the new year than with a refreshing, healthy, and medicinal drink?
Lemon juice has an array of health benefits. These including promoting hydration, improving insulin resistance, reducing wrinkles, dry skin, and sun damage, aiding in digestion, preventing and flushing out kidney stones, increasing absorption of iron, providing a great dose of Vitamin C, and even freshening your breath!
Taking lavender essential oil internally has been shown in studies to be beneficial for easing stomach irritations, insomnia, restlessness, and is as effective as prescription anti-depressants at the relief of generalized anxiety disorder. Couple the health benefits of this with lemon juice and this makes for one dynamic drink combo!
