My Recipe: Honey Lemon Nectar

I generally use the juice of half a fresh lemon, and a decent teaspoon of organic, raw unheated honey in a standard mug with freshly boiled water that has cooled a little (but still hot enough to melt the honey). I then add a splash of cold so I can drink immediately in one go to rehydrate me as soon as I wake.
However, it does depend on the lemon and the honey, some lemons are juicier or more sour and some honeys more sweet, so experimenting is important! Also half a lemon may be too intense to start, my family uses a quarter.

Drinking real lemon juice and proper honey in warm water is a totally different experience. I am pleased to share the effects of Honey and Lemon after using it regularly:


  1. I have not had a cold, flu or gastro illness : My immunity is much better and I feel healthier.

  2. I no longer need coffee and have become a morning person : The zing, I get from lemon and honey first thing in the morning has become something I crave, and doesn’t leave me with headaches or the dreaded caffeine comedown. I also have more energy for longer and am quicker to smile in the a.m.

  3. The people around me are becoming healthier—the biggest reward : It’s such a lovely feeling to know that I can help my loved ones feel better through something so simple and available. I have become some kind of one-trick uber-nurse, and that’s awesome.

  4. Keeps you regular and protects from UTIs :Because this mixture when taken first thing in the morning stimulates the digestive system, as well as hydrating the colon and more, honey lemon water keeps constipation at bay. It also acts as a diuretic, cleansing the urinary tract and ensuring no urinary tract infections. I can certainly verify this one!

  5. Improves digestion:Every part of this drink aids in the digestive process; lemons assist your liver in producing more bile so you can break down complex foods better and use the good stuff from your meals. Honey is antibacterial which protects you from any infections you might have. It also helps with the production of mucus in the stomach, helping to flush out toxins. For this reason, it also assists with healthy weight balance.

  6. Makes you glow with health and beauty:Lemon has many benefits for skin, but it also helps purify the blood as well as aiding in the production of new blood cells that act as cleaning agents. The water and honey create a restorative, antibacterial and collagen boosting powerhouse for your skin too.So there you have it, my verdict is overwhelming positive and I highly, thoroughly recommend it. Plus it’s delicious.
