9 Benefits of drinking coconut oil and lemon water

1 – Boosts metabolism
2 – Fat flushing
3 – Detox – Flushes your kidneys and liver of toxins
4 – Appetite suppressant
5 – Water helps keep you hydrated
6 – The Lemon boosts Vitamin C
7 – Creates Ketones – Ketones are what your body creates when it turns good fat into energy.
8 – Raises the alkaline in your body – an alkaline body is a healthy body
9 – Great skin – Coconut oil acts as an antifungal and anti-bacterial agent so keeps your skin clear. Also moisturisers from the inside out so skin is more radiant and hydrated.

How to do it:

Best in the morning as soon as you wake up when your body needs a boost.


1 tablespoon of organic coconut oil
½ a lemon
Hot & Cold water
(for a little extra boost I also add 1-2 drops of doTERRA Lemon essential oil – this is known to help with cleansing and digestive benefits and supports healthy respiratory function – if you want to order click here or visit or if you want to find out more about doTERRA click here.)

Squeeze half a lemon into your cup, add a tablespoon or organic coconut oil and a little cold water then top the rest of the cup up with freshly boiled water. You don’t want to pour boiling water straight onto the coconut oil which is why you put a little cold in first.

Give it a good stir and drink down. I find my lips are so soft after having it as the as the coconut oil sticks to them as you drink – my lips have never looked so good.

I’d love to know the benefits you feel once you have drank this for a couple of weeks. Comments below please – lets share our experiences.
