Sweet… like a Lemon!

Other than going hand in hand with Tequila, what you maybe didn’t know about lemons:

Got some lemons? Good, here is what you can do with them or at least have the knowledge should you ever need a remedy, but do not have a manufactured product readily available.

  • Lemons are a hybrid, cultivated from wild species such as mandarin and citron.
  • The origin of the word lemon is through Persian.
  • Lemon juice is about five percent acid, which gives lemons a sour taste and a pH of 2 to 3. This makes lemon juice a cheap, readily available acid for use in educational science experiments.
  • Lemon juice mixed in a bowl of water will revive soggy lettuce leaves if left in the refrigerator for about an hour
  • Lemon juice makes a good short-term preservative, commonly used on sliced apples and lettuce. This keeps the fruit and leaves crisp and white/green for about a day, preventing the unappetizing browning effect of oxidization. Lemon juice will also keep guacamole and avocado green and prevent cauliflower from turning brown.
  • Remove refrigerator odours with ease. Dab lemon juice on a cotton ball or sponge and leave it in the fridge for several hours.
  • Lemon contains potassium which controls high blood pressure and reduces the effect of nausea and dizziness.
  • Lemon water can also prep up your mood and relieve you from depression and stress. Long distance walkers and world travellers find it very handy. When fatigue begins, a lemon is sucked through a hole in the top. It is quick acting medicine, giving almost unbelievable refreshments.
  • To get rid of the smell and help sanitize your cutting board and plastic containers, rub it all over with the cut side of half a lemon or wash it in undiluted juice straight from the bottle.
  • Lemon water can reduce phlegm; and can also help you breathe properly and aids a person suffering with asthma.
  • Lemon is a diuretic – assists in the production of urine which helps you to reduce inflammation & free radicals by flushing out toxins and bacteria while also giving you relief from arthritis and rheumatism.
  • Lemons may increase the production of urinary citrate, a chemical in the urine that prevents the formation of crystals that may build up into kidney stones.
  • Lemon juice also stops bleeding gums and reduces toothaches.
  • For salon-worthy highlights, add 1/4 cup lemon juice to 3/4 cup water and rinse your hair with the mixture. Then, sit in the sun until your hair dries. To maximize the effect, repeat once daily for up to a week.
  • Skip the bleach in your laundry room by adding 1/2 cup lemon juice to the wash instead.
  • Dabbing a little juice in your armpits works just as well, if not better, than the store-bought deodorants.
