LEMON essential oil has a slightly different molecular structure from lemon juice, and it apparently does NOT have an adverse effect upon the enamel on teeth. I have personally been drinking it in my water for 12 years, and it has not hurt the enamel on my teeth – and my gums are healthier than before!
We have been led to believe that fluoride is beneficial for teeth. In actuality, fluoride can pit the enamel and cause damage to teeth. Fluoride is not only in toothpaste, but in our drinking water – and once it is there, there is no way to remove it. (Fluoride also shuts down the thyroid, creating metabolic imbalances which can affect the balance of hormones.)
