My family goes through a lot of lemons every week. When Limoneira offered to send us a box of fresh of lemons of course I said yes!
The lemons were nice and juicy. I could definitely taste the difference from the ones I buy in store. I could not wait to put them to good use. I just love the versatility of lemons. They can be used for:
- Cooking (sweet and savory dishes)
I had the best Lemon Ricotta Waffles at FireLake Restaurant at the Radisson Blu hotel!
- Cleaning (laundry and disinfectant)
- Drinks ( my favorites are Lemon Drops and Lemonade)
My daughter Savannah likes to start each day with a glass of lemon water. She really likes to drink water with different fruits in it.
- Wash fruits and vegetables
- Make a face wash
- Deodorize garbage disposals and cans
- Insect repellant and so much more!
Easy Lemon Lip Scrub
1 1/2 teaspoon avocado oil
1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
2 teaspoons sugar
small jar or container
In a small bowl add oil and lemon juice. Then mix in sugar and rind. Stir until mixed well. Store in refrigerator. Should stay fresh for 2 weeks.
Apply to lips and rub for about 30 seconds. Wipe off with a warm towel. Apply some type of moisturizer.
I would not use the scrub a lot. Maybe once a week at the most, it depends if my lips are really dry or not. You just want to get off the dead skin and make your lips smooth.
