It is unfortunate, but many of the fruits and vegetables – even many that bear the “certified organic” stickers – are sprayed with all sorts of fungicides. When these are put into a glass of water, it goes directly into the water.
I am so grateful that Young Living uses only organic lemons that are grown AND shipped without the preservatives, dyes, fungicides, and other chemicals that are so prevalent and which give lemons the beautiful bright yellow color that we usually associate with “lemons”. I have complete confidence in the quality of the lemons used by Young Living. 😀
