I love lemons....Their fresh and clean smell is something that's so great for your home. Do you know all the fun things you can do with lemons? From household cleaning to skin care, age spot removal, detoxification and a lot more! It's an inexpensive natural alternative to chemical cleaners, face products, cough syrup and more. Read all about it below.
When we add organic lemons into our diet, we get a better working digestive system, a healthier immune system and better-looking skin. We enable the body to remove bad cholesterol, and we create a sportive environment for good bacteria; all of this means the body works more efficiently and effectively. Lemons are an amazing way to keep bad bacteria at bay. When you make my LemonAID - 8 ounces filtered water (heated), juice from half an organic lemon and 2-4 drops of natural sweetener - and consume it upon waking or before bed, you get the bacteria-fighting benefits of lemon juice that improve digestion and support your immune system. Adding lemon juice to a glass of water can detox your liver and cleans the kidneys and digestive system. It also helps remove toxins from your body.

Unleash the anti-aging of lemons with this homemade facial cleanser. The acid from the lemons will rid your skin of outbreak-causing bad bacteria while the healthy probiotics from the yogurt will infuse your skin with good bacteria. Just a few ingredients required. Get the Recipe from Dr.Oz
If you've ever wondered about the difference in raw lemons compared to bottled lemon juice, the vitamin C goes from 139% to about 100% of the daily value per serving, with the calcium from 7% diminished to 3%. In addition, bottled lemon juice and other processed fruit juices are not as healthy as they seem, and contain very high amounts of fructose and potentially dangerous additives. Dr. Mercola
One of the most effective cold remedies known is made from lemon: Start with one pint of raw honey over very low heat. Chop a whole lemon into a bit of water in a separate pan, warming for two to three minutes. Add that to the honey, warming for about an hour, then strain out the lemon bits and seeds. Cool the mixture, seal in a jar with a lid and refrigerate for up to two months. To soothe a cough: give 1/2 tsp. for a 25 lb. child, 1 tsp. for a 50 lb. child, or 1 Tbsp. for adults, about 4 times a day or as often as needed. Dr. Mercola
Wouldn't you love to have a glass shower door that is sparkling clean and smells of lemons? Now you can. Check out this post that tells you exactly how you can do that. Super Simple! One Good Thing by Jillee
Lemons look great just sitting in a bowl on the counter. Well, it turns out, that's about the worse way to store them (go figure) Cook's Illustrated tested severe ways of storing lemons and also discovered that the rinds don't protect the fruit from drying out very well. Cook's tested storing lemons at room temperature and in standard refrigerator conditions In the refrigerator, they also tested sealing the lemons in plastic bags, with and without water.
The RESULTS? The lemons stored in room temperature conditions only lasted a week before hardening. But the ones they sealed in plastic bags in the refrigerator? Those lasted FOUR times as long. A month verse a week on the countertop. The lemons stored loose in the refrigerator didn't fare quite as well but were till an improvement over the room temperature examples. And the article makes a point that the lemons should be sealed in a plastic bag and not just shoved in a drawer in their flimsy, open supermarket produce bags. theKitchn.com
I love the idea of dusting with a lemon dusting cloth. They look very easy to make. Just need a few ingredients including lemons, rags, vinegar, olive oil.....Head over to get all the information and the "recipe"for making Lemon Dust Cloths One Good Thing By Jillee
If you've tried over the counter remedies to remove warts and they haven't worked....then try this. Apply a dab of lemon juice directly over the
using a cotton swab. Repeat for a few days until the acids in the lemon juice have dissolved the wart completely. That seems easy and would be less expensive than a store bought remedy.
Applying lemon juice to your scalp an help treat problems like dandruff and hair loss. It can also give your hair a natural shine. Dandruff relief may be no further away then your refrigerator. Just massage 2 tablespoons lemon juice into your scalp and rinse with water. Then stir 1 teaspoon lemon juice into 1 cup water and rinse your hair with it. Repeat this daily until your dandruff disappears. Lemon's acidity helps balance the pH of your scalp, which helps keep dandruff at bay. Source

Here's a fun way to give teacher chocolate in thanks for all her efforts in behalf of your children. This would work for the school teachers and also for teachers at church. A Candy Bar Bouquet is so much fun to put together and inexpensive, especially if you get your supplies from The Dollar Store. We got the box and crinkle paper there. The box actually had a Easter design on it so we just covered it with red scrapbook paper and added the ribbon and a heart. The paper flowers are easy to make but you could always use silk flowers or some other kind of flower--You're CREATIVE!
There are 2 different designs in this kit with a total of 6 in the kit (3 of each design).This design is exclusive to us and a brand new addition to our Etsy shop.
You could even wrap the whole thing up in a big cellophane bag if you like. Guaranteed the teacher will not have seen this anywhere else as these are our newly designed Teacher Appreciation Candy Bar Wraps.
