Wonderful Lemon Juice (PART 2)
December 9, 2012 at 3:13 pm #3715
So after yesterdays novel on Lemon Juice, I’ve come back with the sequel!
Sooo what ELSE can you do with this stuff?
Well….here we go….
Itiching-this one REALLY works, I know because with my kidneys causing severe itching all over my body, this brings real relief! SERIOUSLY! Actually vinegar will work too, and bi carb…or failing those, calamine lotion…i’ve tried em all and lemons do the job best. Bu also I suppose the cause of itching can determine which works best for you! Lol!
Urinary Infections-This baby I have some serious experiences of! Lemon juice really helps with the inflamation I felt in my bladder and also alkalises the PH of the urine to stop the burning (I know crazy when the fruit is acidic but I tell you it works like magic) Alos bi carb…teaspoon in a standard glass of water works! Lemon juice is also antibacterial too!
Exfoliating, toning, cleansing, clears blackheads, deodorises (these first four, you just need to apply the juice on cotton pad to gain the benefits) , broken veins (due to the rutin in lemons which strengthens the veins, the lemon must be consumed for this one)
Hair care-for greasy hair use a lemon juice rinse after shampooing…just a couple tablespoons of juice in a jug of water and use as the final rinse, you’ll find you get an extra day or two before your hair gets greasy again (I know because I have greasy hair :S) This method can also help dry hair out too!
Coloured and bleached hair– try using the lemon juice rinse to conteract any damage cause to hair by hair dyes/bleaches…it works because the lemon acid precipitates protiens in the hair.
Household help –
Air freshening -place dried lemon peel in your cupboards and drawers to freshen them up and anything in them (you can dry peel by leaving it out to dry somewher over several days…an airing cpboard would work. Essentially like a pot pourri!
Pomanders-stick a lemon all over with cloves, then wrap a ribbon around and hang it up – smells wonderful, can also be done with limes, oranges, and apples, among others!
Deodorise a smelly drain with a cup of lemon juice!
Lemon essential oil sprinkled in your hoover bag ir cylinder will make provide a fresh smell when you hoover!
Air Humidifier Make one smell nice by using lemon juice and water in the water compartment! Multi purpose!
Garbage disposal units-throw a lemon peel through it and then rinse with water!
Bathrooms and kitchens Cleaning these areas of the home with lemon juice is wonderful as it smells good and lemons are antiviral, antibacterial and also have limonene in them which cuts through grease! Use pure juice or dilute it in a bucket of water…about a cup full!
Clean windows rub the cut end of half a lemon all over your windows,then wipe with a damp cloth and finish with a dry cloth or some newspaper (also vinegar works in place of lemon)
Disinfecting Add lemon juice to drinking water if you are worried about contamination (mild) or don’t trust public use water where others can sup from it…like a drinking fountain.
Clean with lemons in areas likely to be contaminated…toilet, chopping boards, dishwasher, fridge etc…it will also deodorise!
Stain removal remove sweat stains with a 50/50 mix of lemon juice and water use like a pre treatment leave for half an hour then wash as normal! For hot wash clothes that are stained, just pour a cup of lemon juice into your machine and your away! For whiter whites add a few asprins to a cup of lemon juice and put that into your machine and wash whites! (you can also pre treat with this mix!) Fade berry and tough stains by soaking in lemon jucie and leaving in direct sunlight for a few hours….stains be gone!
Lemon will also keep insects at bay!
Amuse kids create invisible ink by mix lemon juice in a touch of water, and write a message on some paper, the writing will be invisible, so to reveal it hold in near a light…the heat oxidises the juice and your message will become visible!
So…there you are!
I could write another two or three posts on lemons but I won’t. Going to move onto some other useful items!!! (vinegar, bi crab and olive oil, and beyond XD)

Amazing Frozen Lemon
Many professionals in restaurants and eateries are using or consuming the entire lemon and nothing is wasted.
How can you use the whole lemon without waste?
Simple.. Place the lemon in the freezer section of your refrigerator. Once the lemon is frozen, get your grater, and shred the whole lemon (no need to peel it)and sprinkle it on top of your foods.
Sprinkle it to your whisky, wine, vegetable salad, ice cream, soup, noodles,spaghetti sauce, rice, sushi, fish dishes.
All of the foods will unexpectedly have a wonderful taste,
Something that you may have never tasted before. Most likely, you only think of lemon juice and vitamin C. Not anymore.
Now that you’ve learned this lemon secret, you can use lemon even in instant cup noodles.
What’s the major advantage of using the whole lemon other than preventing waste and adding new taste to your dishes?
Well, you see lemon peels contain as much as 5 to 10 times more vitamins than the lemon juice itself. And yes, that’s what you’ve been wasting.
But from now on, by following this simple procedure of freezing the whole lemon, then grating it on top of your dishes, you can consume all of those nutrients and get even healthier.
It’s also good that lemon peels are health rejuvenators in eradicating toxic elements in the body.
So place your lemon in your freezer, and then grate it on your meal every day. It is a key to make your foods tastier and you get to live healthier and longer! That’s the lemon secret! Better late than NEVER! The surprising benefits of lemon!
Lemon (Citrus) is a miraculous product to kill cancer cells. It is 10,000 times stronger than chemotherapy.
Why do we not know about that? Because there are laboratories interested in making a synthetic version that will bring them huge profits.
You can now help a friend in need by letting him/her know that lemon juice is beneficial in preventing the disease. Its taste is pleasant and it does not produce the horrific effects of chemotherapy.
How many people will die while this closely guarded secret is kept, so as not to jeopardize the beneficial multimillionaires large corporations?
As you know, the lemon tree is known for its varieties of lemons and limes.
You can eat the fruit in different ways: you can eat the pulp, juice press, prepare drinks, sorbets, pastries, etc… It is credited with many virtues, but the most interesting is the effect it produces on cysts and tumors.
This plant is a proven remedy against cancers of all types. Some say it is very useful in all variants of cancer. It is considered also as an anti microbial spectrum against bacterial infections and fungi, effective against internal parasites and worms, it regulates blood pressure which is too high and an antidepressant, combats stress and nervous disorders.
The source of this information is fascinating: it comes from one of the largest drug manufacturers in the world, says that after more than 20 laboratory tests since 1970, the extracts revealed that It destroys the malignant cells in 12 cancers, including colon, breast, prostate, lung and pancreas…
The compounds of this tree showed 10,000 times better than the product Adriamycin, a drug normally used chemotherapeutic in the world, slowing the growth of cancer cells.
And what is even more astonishing: this type of therapy with lemon extract only destroys malignant cancer cells and it does not affect healthy cells.
I love the taste and smell of Lemon, so will definitely try this!December 10, 2012 at 12:59 pm #3762
