Blueberry and Lime Smoothie

It seems as though no matter where you are in Australia right now… it’s FREAKING HOTBALLS! I don’t think we’ve gone below 31 degrees for nearly 2 weeks now here on the Gold Coast, and friends in Canberra are sweating it out too?! When does that ever happen?!

It’s high time for a fast, refreshing and delicious smoothie we can whip up at a moment’s notice.

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.
