My Healing Lemon Oil Cooler is a refreshing, fruity drink you just have to try! It contains all the benefits of lemon essential oil and an extra boost of vitamin C. This drink includes frozen pineapple, mango, fresh orange juice, and our favorite sweetener, liquid stevia.

This drink keeps your tastebuds guessing thanks to our secret ingredient, sparkling water. Healing your body has never tasted better!

Benefits of Lemon Essential Oil

Lemons are fantastic for your health, and we enjoy them in many ways. Slices of lemon adorn beverages, their juice keeps fruit salad looking fresh, and they’re even a key ingredient in our famous Lemon Abundance Tea Bread.

While lemons add a delightful citrus note to recipes, they also benefit your body in many ways, primarily due to d-limonene! Here are some of the top benefits of lemons.

May Support Your Mental Health

If you’re like most people, I’m sure you’d say your anxiety levels have heightened over the past year. It’s essential to take advantage of the tools God gave us and give our bodies a chance to fight against negative emotions. I notice that citrus essential oils are instant mood boosters. Lemon EO always cheers me up and makes my home smell fresh! Components in lemon can also help improve your sleep. (1)

Next time you’re feeling restless, make a hot cup of herbal tea with a squeeze of fresh lemon. I suggest a caffeine-free blend that includes chamomile.

Contains Antifungal Properties

Lemon essential oil is an excellent deodorizer. We love using it in our Odor-Eating Powder because it eradicates even the worst smells!

This essential oil is also antifungal, and it can help prevent athlete’s foot, yeast infections, and ringworm. (2) It’s a powerful defense against harmful pathogens. This is one essential oil you need in your stash!

Can Boost Your Immune System

Did you know lemons are a powerful source of antioxidants? They can even boost your immune system! We love adding lemon to our wellness regimen whenever we feel under the weather. We even use it in our Immune Boost Blend.

Lemon essential oil is full of vitamin C and is a known remedy to combat cold and flu symptoms. Some people believe that lemons are a powerful agent against sicknesses because they support the kidneys. (3)

Healthy Drink Ingredients 101

This drink may taste fancy, but it uses easy-to-find ingredients. Here’s what you need to add to your shopping list.

Sparkling Water: This ingredient takes the healing lemon oil cooler to a new level! We bought a machine that allows us to make sparkling water from the comfort of home. It’s a total game-changer!

We’ve been enjoying coming up with new combinations, like this recipe. Sparkling water and frozen fruit taste better than any sugary drink on the market!

Vanilla-Flavored Liquid Stevia: Liquid stevia blends beautifully and tastes incredible. I love using flavored stevia because it eliminates the need for extracts. Vanilla-flavored liquid stevia is my top choice for this recipe, but you can also experiment with coconut or lemon-flavored stevia.

Oranges: Consuming oranges is a great way to fight cancer! (4) These juicy treats are anti-inflammatory and help protect your body from the effects of oxidative stress. (5)

One of the best things about this recipe is that you can customize it to fit what you have on hand. For example, if you don’t have oranges, you can use fresh orange juice and 1-2 drops of orange essential oil. You could also try fresh lime juice and 1-2 drops of lime EO.

Lemon Essential Oil: Besides the health benefits we’ve discussed, lemon is a wonderful EO to keep for cleaning purposes. We use it to remove sticky substances, deodorize stinky shoes, and even polish silver.

We also love adding a couple of drops to our homemade dryer balls. This gives our clothes a fresh scent and removes stubborn odors.

Frozen Pineapple and Mango: Frozen fruit creates a creamy drink without dairy! I think this drink rivals any pineapple whip.

Mango contains enzymes that aid digestion. They break down food and make it easier to pass through the stomach. Mango also has a high fiber count, preventing constipation. (6) Win-win!

Pineapple is full of bromelain compound that reduces inflammation and makes your immune system strong. Studies show that people who ate pineapple were less likely to contract illnesses. (7)

Make a Healing Lemon Oil Cooler

This recipe comes together in minutes. It makes enough for two people, so bless a friend with good nutrition!

Healing Lemon Oil Cooler
Prep time
Total time
Serves: 2 servings
  1. Place the sparkling water, stevia, orange, lemon essential oil, ice, frozen mango, and frozen pineapple in a blender. Process until smooth.
  2. Garnish with mint, if desired. Enjoy!

Step One: Blend Ingredients

Place the sparkling water, stevia, orange, lemon essential oil, ice, and frozen fruit in a blender. Process until smooth.

We recommend using a glass-bodied blender so the essential oils won’t discolor the plastic. If you use a Vitamix or other plastic blender, you may find the EOs stain the plastic. You can help avoid this by adding essential oil in the last step or in each cup individually.

Garnish with mint, if desired. Enjoy!
